12 Things You Understand If Your Mom Is Your Best Friend

12 Things You Understand If Your Mom Is Your Best Friend

How do you value your mom? How do you see her every day? I bet you will have sweet answers to these questions if your mom was your best friend. Yes, you will treat her like a treasure. And you must understand certain things about this relationship that no one else would.

1. She surprises you with gifts

They shop for you. They would buy you a shirt, pants, bra or a makeup kit just because they felt it would look nice on you. They are so good with you that you actually prefer them to shop for you, because really they do know so much about your body size that they will buy you what fits.

2. She advises you and you take it seriously

If they have an intuition that your new boyfriend or girlfriend is wrong and bad for you, you will take that advice seriously. You don’t want to disappoint them and do not want to hurt them so you are willing to sacrifice certain actions just for them.

3. She knows what you are thinking at certain times

She can read your mind. You never told her or give her details about anything, yet she can tell you what could be running through your thought. Even when this stuns you, she always has your interest at heart.

4. She can listen to you at any time of the day

There is nothing in the world that is more important than you. If they are busy they will free up time for you. If they are drowsy or just waking up they will still listen to you because whatever you have to say will always be important to them to listen to.

5. She is your best cheerleader

She knows how to fuel the fire in you when you want to give up. She cheers you on as much as you do the same for her too.

6. She forgives you before you even before you tell her that you are sorry

You will hurt her sometimes. And she will do the same to you. Even when all these happen and there is a divide, she forgives you without looking back your misdeeds.

7. She calls you to know how you are doing

Even when you are far away and you think you are lost, without anyone to check up on you, she will be the first person to reach out to you. You are never distant to her, she will always reach out to you and you to her.

8. She always has your back

When there are challenges and difficulties, when the whole world is against you, she will have your back and see you as right whether you are wrong.

9. She understands you more than anyone else would

No one understands you better than her. Before you tell her your opinion or give her thoughts on a subject, she knows what you will say. She can relate with you and can always give you a nudge if you need it.

10. She tolerates your flaws no matter what

Whether you are temperamental or too cold for comfort, she loves you for who you are. She doesn’t mind about how awkward or different you are. She just sees you as being the best person the world can give to her.

11. She always has your interest at heart

She may scream at you and be afraid about what you are about to do. What matters is that she doesn’t want anything to go wrong with you. She wants the best for you and she will always have your best interest at heart.

12. She gives you the best hugs

No one hugs you better than your mom who is your best friend. She offers you all the warmth and a source for encouragement and reuniting forces. It is like she should always be a part of your life, forever. And she will always be.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
