Recently we received a great motivational speech from one of our avid readers. This is a motivational letter from Anon (Anonymous), and applies to anybody who is finding it hard to make something of themselves right now.

We decided to turn this motivational speech into a motivational picture for the world to share.

We hope this inspires you to “shake a leg” and make a change that will benefit your success.

    Hi Joel (and Anon, if you’re reading this),

    Thanks for the inspiration! Thanks for putting it together like this in a single image that’s powerful and motivating. For challenging us to step up and do more. Doing the same as John–I’m going to print this off and read it every morning. Thank you.

    Oh, and this came at the perfect time. I was running a few minutes late at the gym and thought I should trim the last set of my last exercise to get to work on time. Then I refocused, pushed to finish it, and showered and changed in record time. Glad I did–I’d feel so guilty reading this if I hadn’t.

    Off to share!

    I would still love to know who wrote this. In case you “Anon” are reading these responses, I found this letter about a month ago, printed a copy, and placed it on my nightstand. The pic makes it sort of creepy but that’s not the point.

    Every morning my alarm clock goes off at 3:30 am. At 3:31 I flick on my light and grab this flimsy piece of paper and read every word as I have one finger on the snooze button and my brain is frantically going through a filing cabinet of excuses to go back to sleep. It’s a gladiator style battle. But your letter wins every time. Since that day I have felt like I am finally giving 100% towards this very minimal time on earth. I could go into detail about my challenges, goals, successes, blah, blah, blah, but who cares. The point is everything you’ve said is true. We must all ask ourselves every day, are we the farmer, or the cattle. I choose to be the farmer every morning and until I go to bed. And the results on several levels have been significant.

    Thank you for that whoever you are.

    With all the best,

Follow This 2-Step Process to Stay Motivated When You Feel Like Nothing Is Going Right

The dialogue in your mind is the battleground where your motivation lives and dies every day. In every moment, your words are either lifting you or sabotaging your success. Unfortunately, most people are losing this battle within themselves. They are using their most powerful asset — their mental energy — to beat themselves up, play victimization games, or stop themselves from sharing their passion. (more…)

This Is How An Ordinary Person Can Make Their Country Better.

Published

on

Someone asked on the internet how they can make their country better.
They considered themselves ordinary and felt that they had to be someone special to make a difference in their country, India.

Their question made me feel a bit emotional because I can relate. I too have also dreamt of making my country better.

The most common answer to this question is to get involved in politics.

Many of you reading this find politics really boring including me. I’ve learned through my own experience that politics is not the only way you can make your country better.

Here’s how you can make your country better:


Use your voice

When I was faced with the question “How do I make my country better?” I decided to use my voice.

It was this decision that changed everything. I spent every day using my voice to stand for something. I wanted to inspire the world through entrepreneurship and personal development.

So, I started using my voice by posting on LinkedIn. I used my voice and transcribed it into words to tell the citizens of my country what I think they needed to hear.

Using your voice is incredibly scary at first. As soon as you start sharing your thoughts, many people will say nothing. You’ll get almost no feedback. As your voice starts to get louder over time (probably years) the opposite will happen and you’ll attract trolls and critics.

The hardest part about using your voice is having the courage every day to use it and not being obsessed with the outcome.

By using my voice online through blogging and LinkedIn, I managed to get a 35,000 person bank to start talking about my ideas with staff and customers, and I was voted LinkedIn Australia’s Top Voice that year.

Using the power of your voice is the number one way you can change your country.

It’s in your experiences, ideas and thoughts that you can find what it is that can help your country.

In my country, Australia, we are quite well off, but we still lack a positive mindset. Some of us work jobs we hate and we like things that only money can buy. There’s a competition to get the biggest house or the most expensive car.

It’s not a problem everyone in Australia suffers from, but it’s widespread. I believe by using my own voice to inspire people to seek alternatives, I can change my country.

The results thus far suggest I’m well on the way to changing my country.


Be kind

Changing your country seems like a huge task. It sounds like something only a Nelson Mandela sort of fella can achieve. That’s not true.

A simple understanding of the power of kindness can change your country.

There was this guy I read about online that changed his country by giving out free hugs because he couldn’t run in the local marathon. He embraced his kind nature and ended up impacting millions of people in his country.

Being kind is infectious because we’re wired to do it. When we see one person be kind, we want to do the same.

The problem in my country (and many others) is that we’ve sacrificed kindness for greed.

We’ve let our country’s economy become the most important factor instead of measuring the way we treat people and the ability of a country’s nation to overcome adversity together.

Kindness is so important because every one of our countries will face adversity, and kindness is the solution to that inevitable problem.


Pick up the trash

This one seems even smaller in impact. It’s not.

I found that by picking up the rubbish I saw in places like my apartment lobby, I was able to show myself that I care about my country.

When we care about our country, we choose to make it look beautiful so others can enjoy it. Something simple like picking up the trash can take you a long way towards helping your country.

Every country has an environmental problem and picking up rubbish can help solve it. If we all picked up one piece of trash, then each of our country’s would be a hell of a lot cleaner.


Don’t think you can’t make your country better

A lot of what I’ve learned, by trying to make my own country better, has come from the belief that I can have an impact.

There are so many people who want to do nothing more than complain which wastes time and energy and doesn’t make anyone’s country better.

The way you make your country better is by believing you can and taking one or two small actions to start the process.

The people that change their country believe they can.

50 Cent Scored Half a Billion Dollars – How 50 Made a Killing Off Water

In “The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop,” author Dan Charnas traces how rap grew from its obscure roots in the ghettos of 1970s New York to its culmination as the world’s predominant youth pop culture and a multibillion-dollar industry.

The event that epitomized just how far hip-hop had come was the headline-grabbing partnership between the rapper 50 Cent and the upstart beverage company Glaceau, the maker of VitaminWater. It may well have been the biggest deal in hip-hop history, propelling 50 Cent’s personal net worth toward a half-billion dollars.

In this excerpt, Charnas outlines how it happened. (more…)
