Attention! Let’s first begin by hitting the play button here.
I am back with some fresh content, so it can help you in any facet of your life! My motivation is to motivate and empower you to reach new heights in your life! But first, some real talk here. Shall we continue?
Motivation and motivators seem to be found just about everywhere now. There is definitely no shortage of it! You can use motivation to get you out of doldrums. It can be used to power you through a project. Motivation is a great tool used in sports especially by coaches. It gives you a high from the dopamine within. After that burst of motivation, something inside you triggers and you feel great. It is almost as if you were given an injection of this inspiration and enthusiasm, that enables you to conquer the task ahead. In the movies, it is exactly what is needed at that moment and only god can stop what is about to happen!
Welcome to real life, ladies and gentlemen. After that dopamine effect that was ever so injected into your very being, what are you going to do?
You just read this awesome book, that will change your life forever!
You saw a video that is going to push you over the top, you are ready!
You just read a blog post that gave you some insight and you are going make it happen!
You attended a convention with the best motivational speakers & influencers on the planet, you will fight on!
And then. . . Nothing.
So, what are you going to do about it now? Motivation is only as effective as you are going to apply the energy that was derived from it. When you do SOMETHING about it! Take a moment, and soak that in. At the end of the day, it is all about the application. It is about going out there and doing the deed. It is about confronting what is ahead of you.
Too often people go through this euphoric experience, and procrastination sets in. It all becomes for not, and that energy that was there goes into oblivion. The key is to harness that energy that was there in that moment, and as quickly as possible apply it! Don’t be that person, that was there in that perfect place and decided to just put it off and do it “later.” Sadly, when one puts off something, in most cases it would never even get done. Here is an awesome collection of clips you can use right now, to power you through your next task ahead and beyond!
I found the poem from Serena Williams’ speech in the video clip for you all to read.
Still, I Rise – Maya Angelou
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still, I’ll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history’s shame
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
Motivation is the most awesome thing ever! I absolutely love it, I eat that stuff up and I even have dessert with it afterwards! It makes the energy within me spike at an awesome high, that will lead me to a place not even dreams are made of! I am not even exaggerating.
Thankfully, I also understand in order to use that motivation that was bestowed upon me, at all costs I must get to work! You have got to go out there and execute! Execution will lead you to the promise land!
As human beings, when using anything with motivation, there is nothing out there you can not accomplish. You just have to go out there and make it happen. I promise you this.
