Do you ever remembering hearing a speech that instead of putting you to sleep, it motivated you to take some kind of action that resulted in a shift in your destiny? Motivational speeches have this power. Too often people will give up on their dreams due to failing too many times to obtain them. After a while, their belief in themselves will wither away and lie dormant until something can wake it back up. These speeches have the power to do just that, awaken those rusty beliefs.
Whenever we pursue a goal, we do it because somewhere inside of us, we believe that we can do it. That belief normally comes from either seeing someone else obtain the same or similar outcome, from our past successes in achieving a goal, or simply from someone else who we have trust in believing in us. On your path to any goal, you will be faced with many challenges and setbacks. It’s nothing personal, that’s just the way it is and it’s also the reason why most people will never experience the life that they truly want. These temporary failures will cause most people to stay down after being knocked to the ground a few times. Their belief in their ability to obtain the goal gets weaker each time they are met with defeat.
There are many things that can cause your beliefs to skyrocket again and one of those things are motivational speeches. The reason for this is because the speaker will often use stories that will allow you to realize that all successful people go through many failures before they obtain their goals. Too often we will think that somehow, our challenges are unique and there’s no way to turn things around. Sorry to say but chances are, whatever obstacles you are going through, plenty of people have gone through the same thing and have ended up thriving. Choosing to use a setback to stop pursuing your goals is merely an excuse to give yourself an easy way out in order to avoid more disappointments.
These stories that motivational speakers often times share are stories of people who stood up and kept going after their dreams despite the dozens of failures they may have faced. When you hear these types of speeches, what often happens is that you start to realize that those who are successful are no different from you. They too have had times when they felt like quitting and had every right to, but instead, they chose to keep going. That’s what winners do. The next time your hear a motivational speech that strengthens your beliefs, do the speaker a favor and use it to stand back up, dust yourself off, and continue pursuing your dreams.
