Be Motivated

Starting your day off the right way is very important, it can mean the difference between getting the job you want or doing better in class. As a kid, my parents would always tell me that I had to eat a good breakfast in order to get my day going. A good breakfast, in their opinion, usually meant a banana with orange juice and maybe cereal or toast. I’ve never been a big breakfast person but I do get my morning coffee every day.

Aside from food, there are other morning routines that are important to me. One of which usually consists of listening to music and getting the morning rust off me with a little bit of dancing as I get ready. Recently, I found this pretty awesome YouTube video that took a bunch of motivational speeches from movies and put them all together with music. It is great! I really get a kick out of it. It may be considered kind of cheesy by some, but when I hear just the audio without even watching the video, I get pumped for my day. There are several famous speeches and quotes like Rocky’s, “It’s not about hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward,” to Will Smith telling his son in a film, “You got a dream, you got to protect it.”

I like the video because it shares a very special message with its audience. The message is that no matter what happens in life, no matter how difficult things get, and no matter what anyone says you have to keep moving forward. The world is a big place with over 7 billion people in it, with over 7 billion different opinions, and over 7 billion different ways of living. So no matter what anyone says, thinks, or how many “hits” you get from life, get up and never give up. I invite my readers to watch the video on YouTube and I hope that they get just as much out of it, if not more, than I did.
