Motivational quotes and a motivational video

It’s the beginning of the year, so I’ve been writing about motivation. I want to encourage folks to get enthusiastic and get moving on making their new year a great one. I’ve already written about not making resolutions, but developing new ways of thinking and planning. I’ve written about motivation by incentives for performance management. And yesterday, I wrote about using motivational quotes to make positive changes.

In the article “Use Motivational Quotes To Make Positive Changes,” I suggest that the thoughts you dwell upon become beliefs and beliefs can become self-fulfilling prophesies. That is, your thoughts and beliefs affect your behavior and choices. They influence the behavior of people around you. What you focus on comes true.

That’s why Henry Ford said, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”

While I was doing some research for motivational quotes, I came across a motivational presentation on YouTube. It shows very clearly how your thoughts, beliefs, feelings and attitudes shape your life and make either your dreams or your nightmares turn into reality.

Here is a glimpse of a man born without limbs — severely handicapped, you’d think — turned his life into a joyous and inspiring one. He went from, as his website subtitle says, from no limbs to no limits. His name is Nick Vujicic. When you’ve finished the video, you’ll want to know more. For that, go to his site: You will be amazed, inspired, motivated.

And remember to read my article “Use Motivational Quotes To Make Positive Changes,” which I described earlier.
