I just got back from a great 2 day event called Success Live. Maybe you saw my Facebook post… or not. This event was hosted by Success magazine. I have been reading Success magazine for years and find every issue is packed with valuable information and tons of inspiration! Well, the live event was the same.
I feel today is an especially important Monday to share these inspirational insights with you as we honor the lives lost on September 11, 2001 and think of the people affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma this past weekend. In the midst of tragedy, we must never lose hope. If you are reading this Monday Motivator you must be ok so look for ways to uplift others. One way we uplift others is by elevating ourselves. I hope these people inspire you as much as they inspired me.
From the ever-enthusiastic Brendon Burchard:
- You must live each day with intention.
- Refuse to settle. Raise your ambitions.
- You must invest in your growth.
- Jump in and face your fears.
Pastor John Gray was hilariously serious:
- You have to find your truth.
- Success is about what we give away.
- Will my name carry weight after I am gone?
- Am I doing what I was created to do?
Keith Ferrazzi said we have to have 3 people who have our back. The way we know someone has our back is they do all 4 of the following:
- Work hard to make you successful.
- Tell you the truth.
- Let you know when you are not being accountable.
The phenomenal Les Brown, who I have followed for years, always inspires:
- Only surround yourself with people who are: positive, purposeful, contributors, and productive.
- The imagination is a preview of what is to come.
- Tell yourself, “No matter how bad it is, I am going to make it.”
- Let go of toxic people or you will be dragged.
- It’s not where you start, it’s where you are going.
- There will never be a perfect time to become the person you want to be.
- Rejection can be the greatest gift.
- What you don’t deal with, will eventually deal with you.
- Relationships are more important than money. They are the currency of the future.
Please feel free to share these words in hopes of inspiring others. We need a good dose of hope and optimism.
