An episode of Eric Thomas’s Thank God It’s Monday! Watch! Get your motivation!
Incredible inspirational speech, by the high-tech giant, leader, visioner, Steve Jobs.
I don’t know what to say really.
to the biggest battle of our professional lives
all comes down to today.
as a team
or we are going to crumble.
Inch by inch
play by play
till we’re finished.
We are in hell right now, gentlemen
we can stay here
and get the shit kicked out of us
we can fight our way
back into the light.
We can climb out of hell.
One inch, at a time.
Now I can’t do it for you.
I’m too old.
I look around and I see these young faces
and I think
I made every wrong choice a middle age man could make.
I pissed away all my money
believe it or not.
I chased off
anyone who has ever loved me.
I can’t even stand the face I see in the mirror.
You know when you get old in life
things get taken from you.
That’s, that’s part of life.
you only learn that when you start losing stuff.
You find out that life is just a game of inches.
So is football.
Because in either game
life or football
the margin for error is so small.
one half step too late or to early
you don’t quite make it.
One half second too slow or too fast
and you don’t quite catch it.
The inches we need are everywhere around us.
They are in ever break of the game
every minute, every second.
On this team, we fight for that inch
On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around us
to pieces for that inch.
We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch.
Cause we know
when we add up all those inches
that’s going to make the fucking difference
between WINNING and LOSING
between LIVING and DYING.
I’ll tell you this
in any fight
it is the guy who is willing to die
who is going to win that inch.
And I know
if I am going to have any life anymore
it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch
because that is what LIVING is.
The six inches in front of your face.
Now I can’t make you do it.
You gotta look at the guy next to you.
Look into his eyes.
Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you.
You are going to see a guy
who will sacrifice himself for this team
because he knows when it comes down to it,
you are gonna do the same thing for him.
That’s a team, gentlemen
and either we heal now, as a team,
or we will die as individuals.
That’s football guys.
That’s all it is.
Now, whattaya gonna do?
Get your motivation!
My first experience
Getting to writte my own blog
My very first experience writting a blog is starting to sound like an adventure. I started looking for ways to get some money online and to generate a little bit of a venue and so I decided I will use blogging as a tool for this.
The first steps
My first steps in writting a blog were finding out what a blog should contain, what would atract more people to read my blog and, after that, to decide wich platform I would use. So the first ones were easier. I started reading e-books, searching through the internet for different forms of blogs, what would attract more people to see my blog, how should I write it, the characteristics of a blog, how should my tittle be, how to do a resume for my tittle/subtittles, many things wich I gathered and tried to reunit in this very first post of mine.
One of the best advices I received for posting and about posting is having a conversational tone, humor and direct and energetic sentences. Now, I know I’m not the best writter, but I’m getting there slow and steady. Of course, after reading some success articles, from the known Brian Tracy and after listening to one of hes speech from when he was little I decided I wanted to start posting on blogger.com and on wordpress.com .
Some of the subject I would be interested in writting would be my experiences in life, games, products, other posts, videos, challenging for people. I also want to post reviews about other people, about their videos, about their experiences, photos, opinions. And from time to time, I want to realise motivational posts for people in general, to inspire, to get determined for things they want.
Getting more from this
What I want is to make my viewers content with what I write and get more people to share my opinion with.
Finding people who share the same interests as me is nice and I would like to get to know their point of view about what I write or about my opinions.
Any other opinion is happily accepted as a feedback and I recommend you start today as well if you have anything planned. What should I write about next time?
