Incredible Motivational Speech- Defining Success
Today is not about me. Today is about you! I know what it feels like to sit on a bench I know what it feels like to get knocked down. I know what it feels like to have a hope and a dream. And nobody believes in it, except for a few people. But here’s what I know. If you wake up in the morning and cut off the news, every time you go into a home you understand the power of confidence and likability. Do not fall into the trap the entitlement trap of feeling like you’re a victim.

Success Motivation Speech ▼
You make sure you don’t communicate with you make sure you connect I guarantee you all the time as you water that tree, all the time as you build that root system Over time, I promise you that tree will grow and before you know it you will have your own little personal harvest And don’t you quit! Until you’re number one- motivation. Life’s not easy. It is not! Don’t try to make it that way. Life’s not fair, never was, it isn’t now and it won’t ever be. You are not! Get over it and get on with it, and yes most things are more rewarding when you break a sweat to get them Look, the first step that leads to our identity in life is usually not I know who I am, I know who I am that’s not the first step. The first step’s usually I Know Who I am not Process of elimination Defining ourselves by what we are not is the first step that leads us to really knowing who we are You know that group of friends that you hang out with that really might not bring out the best in you know they gossip too much, or they’re kind of shady. They really aren’t going to be there for you in a pinch Or how about that bar? That we keep going to that we always seem to have the worst hangover from? Or that computer screen, right? That computer screen that keeps giving us an excuse not to get out of the house and engage with the world and get some real human interaction How about that food that we keep eating the stuff that tastes so good going down It makes us feel like crap the next week? We feel lethargic and we keep putting on weight Well those people those places those things Stop giving them your time and energy. Just don’t go there. I mean put them down And when you do this when you do put them down when you quit going there And you quit giving them your time, you inadvertently find yourself spending more time and in more places That are healthy for you that bring you more joy We so often focus on failure, don’t we? We study failure Obsessed with failure we dissect failure and our failures we dissect them so much, we end up intoxicated with them to the point of disillusion And when do we write in our diary? Usually when we’re depressed what are we gossiping about? Other people’s flaws and limitations. And we can dissect ourselves into self-loathing if we’re not careful I find that most of the times our obsession with what is wrong just ends up reading more wrong more failure And the easiest way to dissect success Is through gratitude Giving thanks for that which we do have or what is working Appreciating the simple things we sometimes take for granted. We give thanks for these things and that gratitude Reciprocates, creating more to be thankful for. It’s really simple and it works! Define success for yourself! Define success for yourself, but check this out. I’m in South of New Orleans a few years ago. I went to a voodoo shop And they had this this wooden partition against the wall of these columns and in these columns were all these vials of these magic potions right and the headings above each potion defining what they would give you were things like fertility, health, family, legal health, energy, forgiveness, money… Guess whose column was empty? Money! Just admitted Money’s king today. It’s what makes the world go around. It is success the more we have the more successful we are, right? Now I would argue that our cultural values Have even been financialized Humility is not in vogue anymore. It’s too passive It’s a get-rich-quick-on- the- Internet- riches- 15- minutes- of- fame- world that we live in and we see it every day But we all want to succeed, right? So the question that we got to ask ourselves is what Success is to us? What success is to you? Is it more money? That’s fine. I got nothing against money Maybe it’s a healthy family. Maybe it’s a happy marriage. Maybe it’s to help others to be famous to be spiritually sound Leave the world a little bit better place that you found it Continue to ask you that question. Now your answer may change over time and that’s fine, but do yourself this favor: Whatever your answer is don’t choose anything that will jeopardize your soul Prioritize who you are who you want to be and don’t spend time with anything that Antagonizes your character! Don’t drink the Kool-Aid, man! It tastes sweet, But you will get cavities tomorrow, alright? Life is not a popularity contest! Be brave, take the hill, but first answer that question. What’s my hill? So first we have to define success for ourselves and then we have to put in the work to maintain it. Take that daily tally, tend our garden keep the things that are important to us in good shape I mean, let’s submit it We’ve all got two wolves in us: a good one and a bad one And they both want to eat The best I can tell you: we just got to feed that good one a little more than the other one
