You prayed for this job. Now, all the sudden, you wanna be an entrepreneur. Did that idea come from God or from within you? Or did it come from envying your favorite YouTuber? 🥴
Extrinsic motivation is NOT as LASTING as intrinsic motivation and won’t sustain you when things get difficult. Social media/social media ENVY is our newest extrinsic motivator. We scroll all day, not even realizing that we’re beginning to become “motivated” for success by images of others doing the things we want- or think we want- to do. But, listen, if your only motivation to achieve a goal comes from envying and coveting what another person has, you’ll miss it, babes.
👇🏾👇🏾 “Then I observed that most people are motivated to success because they envy their neighbors. But this, too, is meaningless—like chasing the wind.”
Ecclesiastes 4:4 NLT
•••• “Extrinsic motivation refers to behavior that is driven by external rewards such as money, fame, grades, and praise. This type of motivation arises from outside the individual, as opposed to intrinsic motivation, which originates inside of the individual.” Extrinsic motivation < Intrinsic motivation. Check your heart.
Because I just sent off this gallery to one of my favorite couples 💃🏼
Also it’s 100% true that I try to dance around with my very expensive camera in the middle of the dance floor while attempting to
1. Capture crazy moments
2. Not hit anyone in the face with camera
3. Refrain from dropping expensive camera/getting liquid spilled on it
So far, success!

“Framgångsfrisyr” by chris__m Appearance is an important element of the Nordic success story. “Blonde, tall and beautiful” are words often associated with a Swedish look.
Traditionally these characteristics have evoked images of women, but Swedish men have an attribute of their own to be especially proud of: Their hair. It may seem (at least according to our Nordic neighbors), that successful Swedish men have a particular affinity for combing their hair back.
Have the Swedes in fact discovered the key to success - and is the secret in the hair? “Framgångsfrisyr” meaning roughly “The hairstyle of success”, is a Swedish term sometimes jokingly used to describe hairstyles with an element of combing the hair back prevalent among power circles such as royalty, nobility, the business elite, various celebrities and media personalities. In Sweden’s neighboring countries it can even invoke associations with an image of superiority stemming from Sweden’s former standing as the superpower of the Nordics.

An honest answer is like a kiss on the lips.
This weekend I heard a casting director say, “Isn’t it ridiculous?! You see a red carpet everywhere now. It used to be reserved for elite events and award ceremonies. Now there is one around every corner.” And it got me thinking about the image we portray on social media and in our lives and careers. How we have turned every little thing into something big for our own image and glory. This is true. But then I thought about how exciting it is that little things can be celebrated. Especially when they feel so big to the person who accomplished a goal. Yes, I made a little short film in 2017 and wrote and directed it for the first time in my life. No big deal right? But to me it was a big deal. It felt GLORIOUS. It felt like I was learning and achieving something I hadn’t imagined myself doing as a long time actor. And for a while I didn’t think it would go anywhere or do anything. The festival circuit is brutal and it’s hard to wade through and find the quality side. When I got a premiere and then another acceptance and another I was overjoyed. It felt BIG to me. The next time you are angry or annoyed at how someone is celebrating a tiny success as if it is a big one, check back with yourself. Why would you feel bitter about someone else’s success?
Maybe they were just being honest about how big it felt at the time. ✨✨✨
