3 Minutes of Motivation

“The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.” Jordan Belfort (Wolf of Wall Street)

Check out this clip to get motivated in just 67 seconds! Because this quick video from BuzzFeed has pretty much done the work for us, we’ll throw in another round of inspirational content to get you off your seat; you office super hero in the making! The following article is designed to be an explosion of “go getter” content to burst out the screen and grab those endorphins by the short black and curlies!

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, 
but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

Anatole France

When people say that someone is” a dreamer”, the term is usually used as a derogatory statement. In reality, it is those dreamers who have it right in life. They are the people who set truly passionate goals beyond the normal’ blue sky thinking’ and it is those people who often achieve the most in life. Did you know Bill Gates designed Windows before computers were even ready to install it?

Words may show a man’s wit, but actions his meaning.

Benjamin Franklin

Yes. This. Planning, planning, planning, then more speaking about what you would like to do, then a little more contemplating… tricky thing is nothing really happens until you actually do it. Get up and do it! Actions will always speak louder than words!

Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. 
Seize common occasions and make them great.

Orison Swett Marden

Absolutely, be outstanding. Stand out. Take normal, strained and overused moments and make them astounding by adding a little bit of you.

That video took you less than a minute and a half to watch and the quotes probably took the same time to skim, not a bad way to spend those last 3 minutes - use these, take them on board and reach out to your aspirations.

We’ll leave you with another video of an example of what happens when talented people take Benjamin Franklin’s quote above - to a whole new level.
