I was feeling a bit down with all the horrible news going on the world right now. If it is not Boko Haram it is ISIS if it is not ISIS it is Israel and Palestine killing each other and young children, if it is not them it is Ukraine and Russia throwing missiles like fireworks now another Malaysia Airline has been shot down and over 200 people dead. Is there a crazy spirit going around now and entering people? It is so depressing. Can we have love for our neighbors and enemies? Would that kill us?
So i decided to look for inspiring stories and came across this site www.pickyourgoals.com and this article. I hope you enjoy it.
“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” ~ Michael Jordan.
How can I talk about motivation and not mention Michael Jordan? Jordan suffered his first set-back in his sophomore year when he was left out of the varsity basketball team. Reason? He was only 5’9” at that time. His taller classmate Leroy Smith had won the last spot on the team.
He made up his mind that he would never have to face a similar situation ever again and started practicing every day after that, making it a point to take out time for his practice daily without fail. He soon shot up to 6’3”, made the team the next year and never had to look back after that.
From being a part of two gold-medal winning teams at the Olympics to winning NBA’s Most Valuable Player Award five times in his career, Jordan dominated the sports field for more than a decade in the ‘90s.
Motivational Story — J.K. Rowling
From living as a single mother on state benefits to a multi-millionaire today, J.K. Rowling has come a long way from her early days of struggle and is a true epitome of the ‘rags to riches’ story.
Many a times, Rowling has attributed her considerable achievements to her ability to focus all her attention on the things that mattered to her the most.
The success of Harry Potter series is a tribute to her story-telling abilities and a reminder that everyone has a hidden talent within him or her. You just have to reach out for it and allow it to bloom.
