Getting Up

There have been times in my life when I have felt that there is no way to get "up off the ground" The man in this video gave me a new perspective on this.

Successful People Fail

Have you ever thought of successful people as lucky or pre-destined? I used to, but watching this video made me think twice about that.

Never Underestimate Yourself

I came across this video, and gained a new respect for human potential, and a sport that I had never heard of before!There are some great motivational messages in this one...make sure you watch it to the end.

I can't say I agree with his opinion about rejecting help. After all....there are other people helping him record this video. But...If you look up the word motivated in the dictionary, you're likely to see a picture of THIS guy!

Seriously! check this out!

Is it just me,or does the world seem to be getting a little chaotic?

If you're like me, it can sometimes be difficult to stay motivated when things seem so hopeless. Lately I have felt like I am coming across an obstacle with every step I take. Life seems to be difficult no matter how hard I work at making it easier.

I know that it is not just me. The whole country is in an economic slump. Did I say country? The WORLD is in an economic slump. Mental and illness is at an all time high, physical illness is still prominent even though medical science breakthroughs happen almost daily. Even the most successful people in the world seem to be struggling to find health, and peace of mind. How do we overlook all of the obstacles in our lives, and stay motivated?

Is it really as hopeless as it seems?

I went in search of something to motivate me, and what I found made me think twice about feeling sorry for myself. It seems that the way to overlook our obstacles, is to just act as if they aren't there. Nobody became successful by giving in to their weaknesses. Motivation is all about working with our streangths to move over any obstacles that get in our way.

I am going to share some of the quotes and videos that helped me realize that no mountain is too big to climb, and no bridge is too wide to cross. These people are truly inspiring, and they have motivated me to fight my way past ANY obtacle that gets in my way. I hope you find these quotes an videos inspiring as well.

Great hub! I guess those who succeed fail in the process. You have inspired me to keep trucking.
