This article is from the March 2019 Grand Rapids Magazine. Available on newsstands now or via subscription. A doodle drawn out of frustration led local artist and writer Peter Welmerink to launch StickonStump, a simple cartoon figure who waxes motivational. After posting the figure on his Facebook page, friends urged Welmerink to create StickonStump’s own page, which, within two weeks, had accumulated close to 200 followers. Further coaxing from those who saw this new character and read his words of positivity have since led to a line of StickonStump merchandise, including a book, coffee mugs, signed prints and calendar selling across the country. Did Welmerink expect a late-night doodle to bring about online orders and a newfound stream of income? He’s quick to say he didn’t,

Date published: April 20 2019 Racing Point driver Sergio Perez has described team owner Lawrence Stroll as “probably the most motivated person we have”. The Canadian billionaire took over the bankrupt Force India team last season, with the re-branded Racing Point entry taking over for 2019. Stroll heads a consortium which completed the takeover, and Perez argues that the team is far from a rich-mans toy for him. “He’s very enthusiastic, he’s probably the most motivated person we have in the garage right now,” Perez told Formula 1’s Tom Clarkson in his Beyond the Grid podcast. “He says that this is a project that has motivated him the most in his whole life, it’s the project that gets him up at six in the morning and he’s flat out trying to go through everything. “

15 Motivation Tips That Will Make You Want to Work Out Regularly – Thrive Global

Motivation
Let’s talk about motivation — specifically, finding the motivation to exercise regularly. While research from Yale and Stanford found that physical activity can improve mental well-being even more than earning a higher income, it can be difficult to find the time (and energy!) to make movement a consistent part of our lives. So we asked members of the Thrive Global community to share the motivational strategies they’ve used to work out consistently. Which will you try? Put movement on your schedule “The best way I’ve found to consistently exercise is to schedule my workouts. It’s not a very sexy or exciting method, but it works! If it happens at the same time every day and it’s just part of my daily routine, I’m much more likely to do it and stick to it. Then, once I’ve wor

(Photo – Kenny Larabee)Whenever Iowa and Nebraska play each other in any sport, it’s a given that fans, columnists, and sports radio hosts alike will offer up their takes on whether or not the two border schools are actually rivals. However, for NU head coach Darin Erstad, it’s not a relevant question. It wasn’t important to him as a player, either. “To be completely honest with you, I hated everybody so it didn’t really matter,” Erstad told reporters Thursday afternoon before the team bus departed for Iowa City. “I don’t play favorites.” For Erstad, he wants his teams ready to play no matter the circumstances. Erstad will often repeat his mantra, “everyday is Wednesday” whenever asked about circumstances surrounding a significant game. No matter the opponent, Erstad and his squad will

Have you lost your weight-loss motivation? Get back on track with these tips – TheHealthSite

Motivation
Getting motivated to do something is easier than keeping the motivation quotient up for the same thing month after month. This is applicable to anything that you set yourself up for, including a massive weight-loss goal. It is normal to have a volcano of enthusiasm during the initial days of shedding kilos. But the path to this mission may get dreary with the rather tough routine that you need to follow every day, the discipline that you need to stick to, regularly. So, in the first place, don’t set yourself up for a very tough task, or an unrealistic goal. Your weight-loss plan should include the essential elements of your lifestyle, or else, you will end up feeling deprived, a crucial factor behind depleted motivation levels. However, it is not always necessary to be highly motivat

Trump’s motivation: Owning the libs – Boston Herald

Motivation
President Trump is looking into giving a free trip to San Francisco, New Orleans or other great American cities to tens of thousands of refugees from Central America. All so he can own the libs.“Owning the libs” is one of those phrases to have emerged over the last few years that vacillates between earnestness and irony. For people who use it earnestly, it means to do something, usually symbolic and petty, that infuriates liberals out of proportion to the deed to make fools of them. For instance, wearing a MAGA hat to a feminist poetry reading at a co-op bookstore in Berkeley. It’s a form of taking the culture war to the enemy. The ironic form of the phrase is to engage in unwitting self-sabotage while making a political point. When pro-Trump internet troll and conspiracy theorist Jack
