It's been a while since I've shared a Monday Motivator
but I received the following note in email today,

clicked to watch the brief inspiring video clip
and thought it worth passing along ...
just because ;-)

Hope you all have a delightful day
and a wonderful week!

Dear Virginia,

Peter Drucker once said, "It is easier to come up with new ideas than it is to...let go of the old ones." I couldn't agree more! That comfort zone is...well, pretty comforting for all of us.

What are some of the secrets to taking risks and turning problems into new opportunities? Just click here to watch an unforgettable 3 minute movie that is guaranteed to spark your imagination!

And don't forget to share it with friends and co-workers.

To life,

the crocus are lovely. I've never heard of the other flowers, but I think I've seen them in stores. I LOVED the movie!

They are lovely yellow flowers. Your garden must keep you quite busy.

Very pretty yellows. Crocus is such a welcome sight about now.

I planted crocus and still .... no show!
I thought they would come up through snow.. even here. Sigh! Still waiting.

Diane AZ said...

Looks like your Crocus and Gazanias don't need any motivation, they are doing so well! I enjoyed the video too.

Pam said...

Those are such lovely flowers. All the flowers in your garden are so pretty. Do you have a large garden? It would be wonderful to grow things year round.
What a great motivator. The attitude quote is so true!

Claremont First Ward said...

Not much makes me happier than spring flowers popping through.

Dimple said...

You have a kind of crocus I've never seen before! I have some gazania, but they're not up yet. Their flowers are pure yellow.
Have a great day!

Irene said...

I immediately ran over to the window to see if my crocus' were up, but not yet? Love the movies. Have a Mellow Yellow Monday.

Such beautiful spring flowers! My daughter called to tell me that her garden (back in Oregon) is abloom -- we just missed it. Spring flowers aren't quite the same here in Florida. I miss the shy ones, crocuses, lilacs, and other small treasures. Thanks for sharinig yours.

Unknown said...

I love crocus! Never get enough of them!

Jama said...

That gazania blossom is so gorgeous!

SquirrelQueen said...

Beautiful spring blooms, I love the crocus and gazania. I have a few crocus just starting to bloom and my daffodils are not far behind.

Loved the video, Jeff is my kind of kid. Imagination is everything.

George said...

Crocus or Freesia -- thie important think is that they are blooming! We had snow again today -- I'm beginning to think Spring will never get here! Thanks for proving me wrong.

Linnea said...

I really love yellow flowers. They go so well with the greenery. Spring is almost here! Thanks for visiting mine! Have a fun day.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I can't wait till my flowers begin to grow, although it may take another month. Spring is on it's way!

Karen said...

I loved the little movie--very inspiring--not only do I want to be like Jeff, I want to encourage my boy to be like Jeff. It's not just that he thought outside the box--it's that he held fast to what he wanted to do--he didn't give in to fear and conform.

Kranky Granny said...

I have never seen a yellow crocus.

Wonderful reminders that spring is coming, and I can not wait for it to arrive here.
