After I Read This, I Know That There’s No Reason Why I Should Ever Give Up

After I Read This, I Know That There’s No Reason Why I Should Ever Give Up

Giving up always seems to be the right decision. After all, you’ve done your best and for some reason it just was not good enough.

Kampf, the runner in the video, falls flat on her face. Indeed, she has failed. Kampf started the race in the lead and then suddenly she is dead last. Yet, getting up after a major fall is exactly what Kampf did. How many of us would get up after that kind of fall and keep right on running? Here are a few reasons not to throw in the towel after a defeat. Rising up after a fall is:

1. Character Building

    Thomas Edison once said that it was the 10.000 failures that led to the success of his making the light bulb. When you are able to treat failures as stepping stones to ultimate success you are building a person of character. Treat failures as lessons learned.

    2. A Test Of Your Abilities

      Success is little more than trial and error. More often, success comes out of failure, rather than the other way around. It is our ability to fail and keep trying that makes us into the persons we want to become. A test of your abilities to endure the mistake and carry on in spite of it.

      3. An Impact On The World Around You

        Kampf, the runner in the video, knew that her team depended on her to finish the race. Her strength, courage, and determination impacted her team enormously. It is the same with us. Who is depending on you to keep going?

        4. Realizing Anything Is Possible

          Rather than giving up, you may have to rearrange and refocus on your dream. Create a daily and ongoing journal of your short and long term goals. You will gain a sense of how close you are to realizing your goals as you use your journal to teach and guide you toward success.

          5. Success Happens In Its Own Time

          Don’t-give-up

            You just don’t know when the next try will be the goal you’ve always dreamed of. Winston Churchill once said that the key to success is the inability to lose enthusiasm upon failing. That is the type of motivation required to realize your success.

            6. Believing In Yourself

              Sometimes it takes believing in yourself when no one else will is what counts in succeeding. The ability to carry on in spite of failure is a lesson all successful people learn.

              7. Learning From Your Mistakes

                “Happy accidents” are certainly the stuff of life. And when you think about it failure simply becomes a matter of perspective. To put it more simply, failure stops being an option. A goal has been set and the dream must be realized. Mistakes are life lessons that every person should learn from.

                8. Being True To Yourself

                  You are the one you have to face in the mirror whether you fail or you succeed. The ‘secret’ to success really is getting up after a fall just like, the runner, Kampf did. Kampf did not hesitate in her failure. It is as if the fall never even happened.

                  9. Having The Courage To Get Back Up

                    Kampf did not hesitate in her fall, she just got up and kept on running. That is only a part of the lesson to be learned here. It is also the fact that she continued in her race until the absolute finish. It is this courage that we admire in others and should cultivate in our own lives.

                    10. In Not Losing Hope

                      Of course, there are going to be times when all you want to do is give up. Most of the motivational advice I read declared that as long as you are breathing there is always hope.

                      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?”

                      Advertising

                      “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!
