Unbroken – Motivation Comes From Within

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.

So you have to trust that the dots will connect with your future. You have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path, and that will make all the difference.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your inner voice. You’ve got to find what you love, and that is as truth for work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work, is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking… and don’t settle. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.

You’re going to have some ups and downs. Most people give up on themselves easily. You know that the human spirit is powerful!? There’s nothing that powerful – it’s hard to kill the human spirit. Any body can feel good when they have their health, no bills to pay, they have happy relationships; anybody can be positive then. Anybody can have a larger vision then. Anybody can have faith under those kinds of circumstances.

The real challenge is growth; mentally, emotionally, spiritually, comes from when you get knocked down.

It takes courage to act. Part of being hungry, when you have been defeated, it takes courage to start over again.

Fear kills dreams. Fear kills hope. Fear, puts people in the hospital. Fear can age you. It can hold you back from doing something that you know you are capable of doing; but it will paralyse you.

At the end of your feelings is nothing. But at the end of every principle is a promise. Behind your little feelings, it might not be absolutely nothing, at the end of your little feelings. But behind every principle is a promise. And some of you in life, the reason why you are not at your goal right now, is because you’re all about your feelings. You are all on your feelings and you just don’t feel like waking up… Who does?

Every day you say “no” to your dreams, you take your whole dream back about 6 months; a whole year. That one single day, that one single day you didn’t get up, you are putting your stuff back – I don’t know how long.

Don’t allow you emotions to control you. We are emotional, but want to begin to discipline your emotions. If you don’t discipline and contain your emotions, they will use you.

You want it! And you’re gonna go all out to have it. And it’s not going to be easy; when you want to change. It’s not easy. If it were in fact easy then everybody would do it. But if you were serious, you would go ALL OUT.

I’m in control here. I’m not gonna let this get me down – I’m not gonna let this destroy me. I’m coming back. And I’ll be stronger and better because of it. You have got to make a declaration. This is what you stand for. You’re standing up for your dreams, you’re standing up for peace of mind, you’re standing up for health. Take FULL responsibility for your life. Accept where you are, and the responsibility that you are going to take yourself where you want to go.

You can decide that you are going to live each day as if it where your last. Live your life with passion. With some drive. Decide that you are going to push yourself. The last chapter to your life has not been written yet, and it doesn’t matter about what happened yesterday.

It doesn’t matter about what happens to you – what matters is, what are you gonna do about it!

This year I will make this goal become a reality. I won’t talk about it any more. I CAN! I CAN! I CAN!

To persevere I think is important for everybody. Don’t give up, don’t give in. There’s always an answer for everything.
