Motivation from the Mr. Peanut: “I’ve Got the Power!”


Motivation from Mr. Peanut? You are probably thinking, how on earth is a peanut going to motivate me? Well, the new #PowerOfThePeanut campaign from Planters may do just that. In the video, Mr. Peanut Gets Personal, the general theme is about finding power within yourself. I am finding the power within me to recommit to my health and fitness goals for the rest of the year. I have the power to make change happen. How about you?

Give these questions some thought. How do you find the power within? How do you make yourself feel powerful? How do you survive and thrive through life’s challenges?

Are you letting yourself get lower and lower on your priority list? It is easy to do for so many mothers like me. An honest self-assessment is a good place to start. How many of you know exactly what you want to achieve? Where are you now in your progress towards your goals? What is your plan to get from here to there? How many of you will settle for less or “good enough?” To be honest, I found myself there early this year. I was just settling for “so-so.” Not anymore. I’ve got the POWER! So do you!

A peanut has the power of protein and and 6 essential nutrients. You need to put that power within YOU! Eat right, be healthy, be strong! Find the motivation to live your life harnessing the Power of the Peanut!

While this is a bit tongue-in-cheek, I am constantly inspired and motivated by readers, fellow bloggers, and friends who find the power within themselves. I have a friend with cancer who walks everyday and even attended a recent boot camp event. If she can do it, I can certainly find the power within me to recommit to my own health and fitness.

What are the things you would like to change? How do you find the power within? Share your thoughts with a comment. I can’t wait to hear your own powerful insights.

It's amazingly true, I get my POWER from God, and the whole day just seems better. HE puts the power in me.

I love that commercial. And since I am always trying to stay on track with one thing or another I can relate.

I love the idea of the Power of the Peanut, and the fact that it is getting you motivated to recommit to your health and fitness goals. We all make so many goals when the calendar changes over to the next year, but we, as you said, are all letting what used to be our priorities go and putting other things we deem more important at the time in their place. Our health and wellness are so important and it's great to see people talking about recommitting to goals and wanting to do better during the year when it isn't the season of making changes.

that leader is rssnopeible for the outcome. However, team members are nominated from respective functions without asking the leader.Team leader knowing the responsiblity, but just don't know where to get power & how to excert it (don't forget team member are not directly reporting to you).That is a more realisty scenariao.
