I was told today that I was a motivating source to someone who I hadn’t even realized was paying attention to me. This guy in the gym said that every time that he thought about staying in the bed and not dragging himself to the gym he thought about me and my hard work that I put in at the gym, and the fact that I constantly push myself to do more and to push through even when I don’t feel like it. He said that I motivated him to push through and come to the gym even if he didn’t feel like it. I was amazed and shocked because this was a guy who was relatively new to the gym and who I would’ve never known was paying attention to anything that I did. As he was leaving out the door he said that you never know who might be watching so keep up the good work.
Aside from feeling flattered I felt confused because I never saw myself as motivation for anyone but I suppose that just as there are those that might not realize how much they motivate me, I too, might be recognized by others. As someone who is naturally an observer I notice people and their actions all the time. I find myself continually motivated by these ambitious people (unknown to me personally) that I see striving to be successful in everything they do and who are determined to make their dreams a reality.
I guess if I’m watching others it’s not so far fetched to think that someone could be watching me. Hopefully someone is watching this blog, and my writing development through the internet world and recognizes that some day as well. For whoever is watching (or should I say reading) this blog, I write articles on a multitude of topics, I edit manuscripts for a reasonable fee, I am perfectly fine with my blog being turned into a book, and I am always looking for new clients to work with. Until tomorrow…Work hard and be diligent because you never know who might be watching you!
