The Art of Lifting Someone Up

A list of motivation for yourself and others

At some point in our lives we have given advice to someone. They extended their hand to you and you grabbed it. What do you say next…?

  1. Mistakes are a part of learning, how can you know what works if you do not fail first?
  2. Do not compare yourself to others because you are not them, the word unique exists for a reason. Not one person is the same, and at the end of the day the roads we call our lives lead in different directions.
  3. Accept your weakness as features, how can you improve on those features? Everything in this world improves at some point… so should you! Do not get stuck at version 1.0, keep updating yourself.
  4. Look back at your past as an adventure, because with experience comes knowledge. Everyone was a student at one point, and everyone becomes a teacher.
  5. Do not underestimate your talent until you apply it. You do not know what you are capable of until you try, and like we mentioned before mistakes are a part of learning.
  6. Every single problem you have is not unique! There is that word again (unique) but in this case it is different. Let’s face it, we are not Adam and Eve nor are we newborns. There are answers to most of your problems out there, or simply seek out help from your peers. You are not alone.
  7. Intelligence is relative, self-esteem is not. You have skills, that shouldn't change depending on your audience. Be confident anywhere and with anyone. You are THAT good.
  8. Express your anger in a creative way. Frustration can be a tool to amplify your motivation to overcome that hump. Maybe the angrier you get at the situation the more motivated you will be to overcome it!
  9. Surround yourself with people who want you to succeed… if you are reading this maybe you are the right person to lift someone else up.
