For a long time, I suffered from social anxiety and depression. It was early in the twenties that I managed to fight over it. What can I do to prevent relapses?
Motivational stories is a method I have found quite useful in the last years. It has helped me to stay focus on my goals and NOTHING ELSE! The world doesn’t care about you, you are just a fraction of humanity, and it’s up to you to keep moving forward.
What does this have to do with business? Everything. Either you’re at school, fighting depression, building a business or working out, we need to keep motivated. We need to keep fighting to reach our goals!
Here we’re going to talk about how powerful motivational stories can be!
Your Surroundings Is Just A Distraction!
We focus on what’s happening around us. We follow the mainstream and do not think for ourselves. If you are to succeed in life, then we must detach ourselves from our friends and acquaintances.
You have to make a decision.
SELF RESPECT: You sacrifice everything, to achieve your goals.
SELFISH: You do whatever you want, and only care about yourself.
If you have managed to choose the right choice, then the tricky part starts.
Even before we start, we already gave up. The motivation doesn’t exist, and we start making excuses.
What are the excuses?
Are you too tired?
Didn’t you get enough sleep?
Not enough time or money?
Were you bullied when you were young?
There’s always something!
We make our decision on what we can touch, see and hear. Why should we listen to narrow-minded and ignorant people who have not gotten anyway in life? We must start looking at people who have achieved success in life!

There are endless pages you can follow on social media, so choose wisely!

He’s the man that inspired me the most, Sylvester Stallone!
He did not just inspire me; it showed me that ANYONE could do anything!
He fought for his dream and got rejected time after time. Finally, he got the breakthrough and achieved his goals!
You must fail a hundred times to succeed once.
One of many quotes by Sylvester Stallone, one of the greatest movie stars!
The most logical place to look for videos on Youtube. Here you will find professional practitioners who talk about motivation with intense music and build up the mood. Here you’ll find stories, speeches, and quotes. The movie soundtrack is also great for inspiring.
Here are some examples:
- Ben Lionel Scott
- Prince Ea
- TEDx talks
- Be Inspired
TED is an annual American conference, initially launched in 1984. The conference aims to spread ideas through lectures and performances in research, arts, technology, education, design, politics, economics, culture, business, and entertainment. It is also one of the best places to watch stories of motivation.
You can also download the app TED to your phone.
You will find a lot same on Spotify which is anywhere else, but with better quality. Spotify is a tool for you which are in a situation you can’t watch anything.
The number one motivational speeches on Spotify, in my opinion, is Fearless Motivation. https://open.spotify.com/artist/1FhamVtJlNqaekPnwxQpbk?si=a3FbVow7Tcuo8iVmrQPf2A
Facts tell, story sell
An entrepreneur can sell anything, just telling their story. When you tell your story, you share a piece of yourself. You will achieve respect, and people will like you.
It doesn’t matter how excellent the service or product is, as long as the story around it is a masterpiece.
A great example is a Youtube video by Dan Lok. How to sell anything to anyone anytime. Sell me this pen !https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6Csz_hvXzw
In this video, he explains the importance of storytelling for a product. That we don’t buy because of quality, but with emotions.
To the Haters
To those who say that motivation videos are not working and the tellers are the only one who gains from it.
You are wrong!
Everything is about your psyche, so to be motivated, we must be driven by something. No one will come to you and prompt you. You have to do it yourself, find your way. Don’t listen to others, but yourself!
It works for me, and it will work for you
