That Thing Called Life | A Motivational Speech About Not Giving Up




Working The Middle

I often get the question, “How did you survive your time in prison? How did you deal with the six plus years of wanting to get back home?” What I discovered was one of the most important lessons for my life during that time. When I began to study the lives of peak performers, I discovered their success in whatever endeavor, was won or lost by what they decided to do in the MIDDLE – when nothing was happening but they were working their butts off!

What Did You Do With Your Time?

The clock is ticking, each moment of your time is precious. Every second of your time is valuable. If you had to record each moment of your day, how would you judge each moment. It could be said that you are the judge of your life, how would you evaluate the day which just ended. Was it a valuable day, if you looked back on your life, what would you say was your biggest achievement during the day. Did you feel that you achieved the things you set out to achieve at the beginning of the day?



Who Are You – Really

Who are you? And I’m not referring to your name, address or any other specific descriptors you might use like; position, race, religion, age, gender etc. What I’m asking is who are you when you peel away all of the facades, fears, desires, history, goals or status. I mean really – who are you? And not just your beliefs, values, opinions or expectations. I’m sure you are wondering by now – what’s left if you don’t include any or all of the above.

Attitudes – The Contributors

I’m sure you’ve heard it a hundred times – attitude is everything. I know I’ve said it thousands of times, but what exactly does this mean or better still what are the factors that contribute to our attitudes? The list is really long and complex, but I will cut to the basics hoping that if you feel you need an attitude adjustment or know someone that does, that this abbreviated version might be of some value. So what are the major contributors to attitudes? In no order of importance I believe they are; Experience – Experience can be a great teacher or it can cause our attitudes right or wrong, good or bad, to become further entrenched in our behavior causing us to just default to previous responses when dealing with totally new circumstances or people. If we don’t learn from our experience we can’t use it as an effective tool to improve or change for the better. Negative experiences have a significant impact on our attitudes and until we are willing and able to evaluate them maturely and accurately we are destined to continue to repeat similar behaviors in completely new and different situations.

Living Your Life, Running Your Race
