Who Left the Gate Open-The Trials of Staying Motivated


Stay Motivated

Stay strong

Stay working

Get up

And keep going!

We’ve all heard it, in some form or another.


We’ve all tried it and we have all failed at it at some point or another.


That’s life, nothing we can do about it.


We have all wished to be better, to do better, and to never give up. Now I am not saying give up, I am not saying you will never get there.


I am saying


Keep working! Keep striving to be better. Don’t give up. You have dreams, you have goals in life that you want to reach, so reach for them. And if you don’t have specific goals right now, make some. Strive to be better, then you were the day before. No one is going to just hand you your dreams.


Some days its hard, its hard to get up, its hard to stay motivated. Its hard to keep working on a dream that seems so far out of reach right now, but you can do it.

Jump into your motivation!


Have you ever seen the look on a puppy’s face when the gate gets left open? The moment they see the gate open up into the unknown, they run! The motivation and drive inside of them is unbearable, they wonder the open space in curiosity and joy.


They don’t want to be caught by the person running behind them, they don’t want to get trapped up inside the fence again. They want to be free, they want to see what is out in the world.




The amazing thing is, unlike the puppy. We have a goal were running towards, we have a dream that is built up inside of us. 


What we don’t have, is the same motivation as that puppy has. Remember the puppy is only exploring. You are chasing a dream, stay motivated to reach that dream, reach deep down inside of you and pull every ounce of strength you have to get there.


Make those dreams a reality in your life.

  1. But best of all, my 10 weeks were spent volunteering with young people from a mix of cultures and backgrounds – from Belgians to South Koreans. When I left Arizona, I returned home having made friends with students from across the world.
