Motivation gets you going and habit gets you there. - Zig Ziglar

Absolutely, Zig.

Actually what gets me going best are doughnuts 😜

Here's how even a Monday is able to turn into a blast!

Picture: @surfermarly getting rewarded for the last surfing session 🍩

Who needs some #mondaymotivation?

Have you ever wondered that a Monday doesn't even know that it's Monday?

There's a lot of hype about it, but actually it's a day like any other.

Yeah the weekend's over (I know) and it could have been longer. Like always.

But I swear: there's going to be another weekend ahead. Promised 😊

So why not stop to complain about an unchallengeable fact and focus on something more profitable?

Ha! And why not? Isn't that Mondy issue just an excuse to be lazy in the end?

Aimlessness is lame. Get yourself out of that self-pity circle.

Try to wake up with determination and go to bed with satisfaction, no matter what day it is.

If your daily objective is clearly defined, you should actually be able to perform in the exact same manner on Mondays and Fridays.

Ask a successful entrepreneur how he came so far. I'm sure he wouldn't reply that Mondays sucked πŸ˜„

Entrepreneurs are willing to work 80 hours a week to avoid working 40 hours a week. - Lori Greiner

Correct, Lori.

Don't we all have that dream to not work anymore at some point of time in our lives?

Well then let's prove it!

Who needs still some motivation? Here we go: 2 minutes of surfing and doughnut fun - Play it LOUD 🎧]

Btw: "Domingueando" means sundaying around.

To those who don't speak Spanish: what I'm saying in the end of the video is basically that

I do all these extreme surfing sports only to be able to eat as much sweets as I can. Always. At any time. Secret revealed - whaaaam!

So that's my incentive though: sweets πŸ™ˆπŸ˜„ Which one is yours?

Have a great Monday, steemians!

Marly -

Today's album πŸ“·

Checking the wave forecast and having the first coffee at 9AM in the morning.

Having breakfast (including a local Canarian banana, small and sweet).

Arriving at the beach.

Beach walk.

Saying hello my surf buddies in the water.

Team work.

Happy girl.

Surfing punk.

Goofy style.

Enjoying my sweet reward.

I hope you enjoyed the pics 😊

Your personal love and feelings for Monday are a good indicator about where you're currently at in your life and where you should or want to be.

Kind regards and have a great start into this new week (:

Β·

Ricky Gervais is brilliant! Even though maybe it's not a whole life that sucks if you feel uncomfortable with Mondays. But there'd be definitely some potential to improve your working strategy if you need a Monday as an excuse for something πŸ˜‰

I think it's always a good time to have a good time, no matter what day it is. That's "where I stand".

Have a great one!

So good pictures, I saw in other post that you liked a video intro if you want one I can make something for you... if you accept it from a Bodyboarder por supuesto! Buenas fotos y buenas olas!

Β·

Wohooo that would be awesome! Por supuesto, bodyboarders and surfers are in perfect harmony, aren't they? πŸ˜ƒ
I'd love to have a professional intro (logo animation) for my videos, being "surfermarly" the brand to use.
CΓ³mo procedemos? Following your blog for a start πŸ˜‰

Β·
Β·

Sure we are in harmony... let's do this>
1 - Do you have a logo_ or just will do something with simple text?
By the way... we ca ngo on Discord si te parece porque si no acΓ‘ se hace interminable... jajaja vos solo decime

Β·
Β·
Β·

Let me think about it :-) Because actually I should have a logo first and then do the animation based on it.
Te contacto en Discord cuando sepa como enfocarlo, vale? Tienes el mismo nombre ahΓ­?

Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·

Obvioulsy,, take the time that you need! And I'm sure the idea comes when you are surfin':)
Si es Discord soy Leotrap tambiΓ©n...

Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·

Pues estuve pensando que quiero hacerlo bien en el sentido de no acelerar solo para tener un intro, sino que quiero que la marca estΓ© presentada de la misma forma en cualquier sitio (steemit, FB, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter,...).

AsΓ­ que voy a necesitar un logotipo primero, y a base de eso podrΓ© hablar contigo acerca del intro.
Lo que voy a hacer es preguntar a la comunidad si alguien estΓ‘ interesado en hacer un logo (porque mi conocimiento de Photoshop estΓ‘ limitado y no me lo permite :-)). Lo pagarΓ­a en SBD/Steem obviamente. Supongo que via steemgigs podrΓ­a encontrar a alguien.

Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·

Yo te lo puedo hacer... que concepto buscas? si no la otra es hacer un concurso de diseΓ±o para involucrar mas gente tambiΓ©n obvio... si queres me podes encontrar en Discord.

This was definitely the Monday motivation I needed. It's time for us to stop using Monday as an excuse for having a bad or lazy day. Your days are what you make them,especially as an entrepreneur. Hard work yields sweet treats like doughnuts!

Β·

Is actually something I came up with as a kid and have used ever since. There was an old anime series I read and it was common for them to use numbers instead of letters in some of the dialog.

Β·

Your days are what you make them.

Absolutely! Nicely said.
Thanks for stopping by and adding your thoughts πŸ˜‰
That's an interesting user name. Why these numbers?

Mondays can be turned into Sundays, you proved it with your post.

Β·

Yeeeew! No doubt about that πŸ˜ƒ Let's do some magic!!!

I haven't had a problem with Mondays since I was in school, every day is a weekend day for me now :) Actually, I frequently forget what day of the week it actually is!

But this Monday was made even better by your smiling face Marly!

Β·

Oooooh you are more than welcome! I hope you had a great weekend!!!
Did you get your brother's account ready? Have you seen my last message about the internal market?
I really hope to read him soon here.

Every day is a weekend day for me now :)

That sounds like a fairy tale to me 😍
So have a great... whatever day, hehe!

surf on! :) I'm falling asleep at work... I hate mondays, at least for some more time!

Β·

Haha, that means you didn't relax during the weekend. Fail πŸ˜…
Happy second half, depending on your working schedule there should be only a few hours left. You can do it!

Β·
Β·

Nah, had no time to relax!... But it still was great, just no relaxing time, that's it! But well three more hours to go! How was your weekend, besides surfing, relaxing and some sun? :D

Β·
Β·
Β·

Hehe, then good luck for these three hours πŸ˜ƒπŸ€ž
My weekend was perfect, thanks! Trying to somehow deal with the hot temperature since a heat wave came over from Africa.

Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·

I'll need that :)
Heard about that, in southern Europe it gets a little dangerous already, because of the heat wave...

Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·

Here it always happens in summer. It's called "calima". Then the air is full of white sand that comes over from the Sahara. During that period of time you don't need to wash your car, haha! That's probably the only benefit.
Right now there are like 38 degrees Celsius outside, impressive! πŸ˜…

Das ist ein schΓΆner Start in die Woche :-) 100% und resteemed ;-)

Β·

Ganz herzlichen Dank!!! Eine tolle Woche fΓΌr Euch πŸ˜ƒ

You know donuts are just the best haha :)

Β·

Yes they are! They are even better than a whale vote I'd say, haha!

In an increasingly busy world, going surfing is an opportunity to get closer to nature, test yourself against the ocean, have fun and get some fitness exercises.

When you can already surf this sport, feel the pleasure of playing with the waves. However, stay alert with the risks that can occur.

You look so enjoying my so envy, hopefully the best always with you dear.

Β·

Hey @yuliaindra!
Thanks for your encouragement. Surfing definitely helps me to balance my life, no doubt about that.

Stay alert with the risks that can occur.

Always. There is not one day I don't get into a more or less dangerous situation. A single wave that breaks stronger than you expect or in a different manner can hit you hard. So I'm always aware!

Wish you a great day!!

Just 3 more Mondays to go and and free to eat donuts and dream about surfing!

Currently sat at my desk on what is now, just Monday afternoon. Roll on 4:30!

Your post has brightened up the day at least, thank you!

Β·

Hehe, I'm happy having brought some beachy sunshine into your Monday πŸ˜ƒ

The best comment on this post was actually done by my mom (she sent it via text message since she doesn't have a steemit account yet):
Mom: "Oh did you put some lipstick on? Looking good!"
Me: "No. That's just the shiny fat from the doughnut." πŸ˜…

Β·
Β·

hahaha, good spot mum!!

Motivation is that kick starter to your engine for chasing desires
That doughnut looks absolutely delicious and a great way to reward yourself after having some fun haha
If we be pessimistic negativity sticks with us so the best we can do is to be happy during times of suffering.
Great way to start my week with this post @surfermarly
Thank You :)
I hope you have a great week!

Β·

Thanks for your encouragment!
The doughnut was awesome. After drinking much salty water during a surf session (not really on purpose, haha) something sweet is just the best.

I'm having a great Monday, yeah πŸ˜‰ Thank you!

Awesome shots. I want a go pro!!

Β·

Haha, I can totally relate πŸ˜‰
That was my very best invest this year, absolutely charged off!

Thanks @surfermarly - motivation worked! I cleaned the balcony just now :-)

Β·

Ha! You can go ahead with my terrace if you don't mind?! πŸ˜†πŸ‘Œ Hope you're fully enjoying your vacation!!

This is awesome!!! Ive been surfing since I was 8 but haven't been able to for the past 2 years :( Love it and will be checking back regularly

Β·

Oh wow! If you've been surfing since being a kid you must be a PRO!
Do you come to Steemfest in November? We should surf in Portugal together then πŸ˜ƒ

Β·
Β·

I actually brand new on steemit :) So this is the first I am hearing about it

Ah! It all makes sense now....... doing all that wonderful exercise for unlimited sweet treats! ;) I get it! Great short clip! Looks like your Monday was much better than mine. No just kidding but it looked to be a hell of lot o' fun! Enjoyed watching it! Thanks for posting oh and your breakfast looked way better than the pastry.......

Β·

The breakfast was to distract you from my sweets problem, haha!
Yeah, now it's official: I'm just a maniac donut burner πŸ˜„
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Your post definitely brought sunshine my way on a Monday. I just love your Mom's comment about the lipstick. Sounds like some of my "lipstick" conversations with my daughter. LOL

Β·

Hehe, these conversations happen between all parents and their daughters I think πŸ˜‰
I'm happy that I could bring some sunshine over. We're in the middle of a heat wave right now. That's the annoying part of it, especially if you don't have an air condition in your house and the inside temperature (while blogging) is at 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit) 😫😫😫 Haha!

Have a great week!

nice monday donuts+surfing,what else you need:)) Surfing punk photo is good haha

Β·

What else do you need...? Hmmmm.... I have no idea πŸ˜ƒ
I like the punk, too. The ocean designed my hair like that, haha

Great motivation, we have to stop worrying about things we can't control that made us consumed by neagative energy we have to focus on what we can change , its all about our mindset and how we approach things .we have to learn from today's test to pass the next one.our burning desire and determination could lead us to our aim and even more further .@surfermarly may blessings shower upon you.

Β·

Its all about our mindset and how we approach things

Absolutely! I fully agree here πŸ˜‰
Thanks for your support and have a great week!

very nice post

Β·

Thank you surfer πŸ˜ƒ

Very nice Monday! (;

Β·

Oh yeah, I don't complain at all πŸ˜‰ How was yours?

wow, I think that I have to visit spain and take some spanish lessons in order to understand you in your video...what I missed in the video is the sharks chasing you while you surf!!! need some adrenaline in order to scream!!!! Great post, and video, upped. Keep safe and bless you my dear one.
Feel free to see my latest post about how I exposed @dan Β΄s secret plan to take over the world. More success to you.

Yes, the doughnuts.

Β·

As good as muffins. Sometimes I just can't decide πŸ˜†

Loved the way you spend the Monday

Keep on going Surfing

Β·

Will do so! Thanks πŸ˜‰

We all need motivation! Great photos!

Β·

Thanks! Yes, we do. It's all about the right kick-start πŸ˜‰

Eating donuts "always" only lasts into your 40's. Then donuts become fat pills (I don't care how many waves you make)... Always! lol

Β·

LOL - have you ever been surfing?

Β·
Β·

Yes, now I just dive and snorkle and play racquetball! Surfing on Guam is dangerous... too much coral reef.

Β·
Β·
Β·

Outch, that hurts! I've been surfing in Maldives which are full of reefs, too.
I love to snorkle, too! 😊

Β·
Β·
Β·
Β·

I'll stick with the sandy bottoms when surfing. It doesn't hurt so bad when I wipe out!

Beautiful... I like you post.. @surfermarly
Don't forget visit my blog @helmirenggrik
Thanks..

Β·

Thank you!
What does "The error brand" in your profile description mean?

Β·
Β·

Your welcome..
I was a very poor ...Thank you for visiting my blog @surfermarly
My friends often say that I am not a human being. It is because the power to analyze the thinking of others. They also say I am a man failed products, because I can belom completed College and have yet to have a job. In the meantime I now have to earn some money for my family. My father died long ago. That's why I wrote it.

Actually I like Mondays. The shops are open again - how else would you go and get the doughnuts???

Β·

On my island they are open every day, even on Sundays πŸ˜‰

Β·
Β·

Lucky you :-)
