I would like to introduce you to, Katy, a fellow North Iowa Blogger!
What Inspires Me Wednesday: The Feeling of Achievement
When people first ask me what inspires me, I’m quick to say “my three guys”. This would be my husband and two step-sons. And to that point, they do inspire me to be a better person. But, I’ll be honest to admit that I’m not driven by one specific thing.
Yes, my family does drive me. I want to always make my husband proud of me, in everything I do! I want my boys to look up to me as someone who has determination, work ethic, and drive. Whether it’s doing something that is more of a hobby (teaching workout classes) or blogging to working my full-time job, I want them to see someone who never gives up, gives 110% to be the best that they can be!
The Challenge of Something New
It took me awhile into my adulthood to figure out that I get bored easily in a job. If I’m not in a place where every day is different and I’m not challenged on a routine basis, I get bored. I want to always continue to grow my mind and skill set.
Yes, money is nice, but I’ll admit that I prefer to be recognized by a “good job” or “job well done” over anything else. I think people in general want to be appreciated and recognized over anything else. As a person who has their hand in several different businesses and hobbies, that recognition can vary. Sometimes it’s someone acknowledging me as an expert. Other times, it’s a simple “thank you for your help/efforts’.
Making A Difference
I’m not a doctor, therapist, or anything who is making a difference in the world, but I want to know that I made a difference somehow. It might be in my full-time job by just being good at my job. It might be in the way I conduct myself, hoping to inspire someone else. Making a difference can also circle back to the example I want to set for my boys. I hope that me being in their lives makes a difference in theirs.
Everyone has something different than inspires them.
