My Motivation has always come from within, some would say it was shaped up by the circumstances life put me in.
I lived a very fast life and didn’t do things in the order that an ideal person would do.
I wouldn’t class myself as the perfect role model but i could say you can take the good parts of my life and MOTIVATE yourself to reach your goals
Few examples you could give is i started working from the early ages of 15 doing paper rounds by skipping school lessons even though it wasn’t correct to do so i balanced my school and work life even at that age and still got through School, College and University. £5-10 A WEEK WAS A LOT OF MONEY IN THAT TIME.
In this day and age if an individual doesn’t have a ‘degree’ they are not classed as intelligent individuals and no one really recognises them for anything. To me a degree was just a piece of paper NOTHING MORE and i have probably never told anybody i ever had one. It made the parents and family proud but to me it was a process of life which i had to get across to start working in the REAL WORLD. This is of course my opinion i have nothing against people who value degrees and other qualifications for their own reasons and i would recommend every young child go and EDUCATE YOURSELVES as i’m a firm believer in LEARNING AND EDUCATION.
Another example of this would be at the early ages of 20 years old i already was married and had a child. I had the confidence to be able to commit and provide for a family even though i had nothing at the time. THIS WAS COURAGE AND SELF BELIEF. Its very important everyone believes in what they want to do and shouldn’t let the fear of finance stop them from doing what makes them happy at that particular time.
I was born and bred in a poverty stricken area and came out as strong Entrepreneur who could sell a product to anyone and deal with people from all walks of life. YES my extrovert personality maybe helps me a lot in that department but i believe EVERYBODY can learn to build themselves in the areas which they will one day need to use to get through life and build relationships. ‘SKILLS ARE UNIVERSAL – KNOWLEDGE IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYBODY NOT JUST TO THE ELITE’
Look up to great people who have achieved their success in life and see WHAT MAKES THAT PERSON ACHIEVE IN THEM FIELDS.
RESPECT YOUR CRAFT, WORK HARD AND BUILD YOUR SELF WORTH.
WHEN YOU TALK TO SOMEONE THEY WILL NEVER LISTEN YOU HAVE TO SHOW THEM WHAT YOU CAN DO!!
APART FROM WHATS WITHIN ME MY SECOND BIGGEST MOTIVATION HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FATHER. ……To be continued on a different blog……..
