As we are entering the last quarter of the year 2018, I remember that back to secondary school, this period was the first term of the school year but also the period to set academic goals.
The joy of evaluating myself and setting new academic goals came from the fact that I achieved something significant by being admitted to the next level and also because I had the assurance that despite the challenges of the new school year, I could surely overcome them.
The motivation was triggered by the idea that if I could succeed even without all the necessary resources, I will surely succeed again whatever adversities I could encounter.
It’s also why I am dedicated to support you every week with resources crafted from the most reliable professional network in the world.
Don’t forget the 3 rules to benefit from these motivation speeches : Read- Reflect-Act
1.“To appreciate how diversity leads to stronger teams and greater creativity, we need to unlearn our biases.” ( Globality Inc’s chief customer officer Yuval Atsmon)
2. “There is a difference between dawning awareness and taking action.” (Bonobos founder and Walmart SVP Andy Dunn)
3. “Each day, each life event, each development in the world can serve as a catalyst for each of us to understand something new about ourselves and about the world around us.” ( Kenyon College president Sean Decatur)
4. “Achieving our goals is not just about drive or ability; it’s also about knowing our weaknesses – and addressing them.” ( Goldman Sachs’ Dane Holmes)
5. “The purpose of an interview is to determine if the person is competent and motivated to do the work that needs to be done, fits within the organization and has the potential to grow.” (Author and CEO Lou Adler)
6. “Business, like life, is filled with tough moments that aren’t on anybody’s calendar. Even as we are beset by events that are beyond our control, we can still control two things: our own attitudes and the way we treat others. We can persevere.” (Former GE chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt)
7. “My doctor told me I would never walk again. My mother told me I would. I believed my mother.” ― Wilma Rudolph, American sprinter, first woman to win three gold medals in a single Olympiad (Rome 1960), childhood polio survivor (Priscilla Chan)
The 7th speech made me more confident that, to identify the areas God wants me to soar, I should perceive negative appreciation on my skills as signal that the best is about to come out of me in those area.
Once again, I would like to hear from you which of the above motivation speech empowered you to grow and become a better professional or business person.
