We here at Life And Mind are helpers. Motivators. Leaders. All we want to do is help everyone and anyone who comes to us seeking out knowledge. 99% of the people we talk to, train, educate are eager, hungry to learn, dedicated people who know what they want and will stop at nothing to get it.
That is the L&M mindset, nothing will stand in the way of getting what we want! That is the mindset also of our community both here and on our social media platforms.
But. There are always those 1% ers who say they want it, who claim they will go to the depths of themselves to win, yet they give up as soon as the going gets a little rough, as soon as they're taken out of their comfort zone they crumble. These leeches are the kind of people who look at the weather forecast and stay in eating doughnuts because it was raining, or there was a bit of snow on the ground and they didn't want to get their feet damp. They will kill your happiness and try to keep you from reaching your goals through jealousy that they don't have you mindset.
Now, I hear you say yes Chris but how do I motivate them?
The answer is very simple. You don't. Even if this person is your wife, husband, son or daughter, you don't motivate them. You have to realize that they are a waste of your time. They will say all the right things but never respect you or themselves enough to truly go after it. You have to spend the limited time on this earth firstly making yourself the best that you can be, and then carefully select others that you can help and leave the people who can't be saved to rot away in their own laziness. Harsh? Yes. But, you know it is the right thing to do.
It has happened to me where people will rebel against my advice because they don't want to be told what to do. And where are they now? Sitting on their sofas wasting away, stuck in jobs they hate, not living their lives. Don't let that be you and don't waste your time on the people who choose that for themselves.
I leave you with an over used but still very applicable quote. "I can accept failure, what I can't accept is not trying" - Michael Jordan
