Monday Motivation: Learn from your falls, make a decision, and get after it!
Monday Motivation, 8.20.18
Written by: Mike Goleski
Every Monday, The Rogers-Long Team meets for one of its two weekly meetings. The Monday meeting always ends with “Monday Motivation” in which a few minutes are spent listening to one team member presenting a quote, a quick reading from a book, a scene from a movie, or anything else they find motivating to provide a “spark” to the whole team on a Monday morning.
My Monday morning motivation was titled “Why do we fall”. The video is a sequence of motivational speakers, celebrities and professional athletes. You see them coming up short in game winning situations, getting injured in Olympic and professional games, Hollywood actors inspiring us in movie rolls, and more. Here are a few quotes I took from the video…
“Quitting will last forever”
“Don’t be afraid to fail”
“Make a decision”
“Those who say he can and those who say he cannot are usually right”
“Don’t try to give up. Try to keep going”
Powerful quotes from ordinary people that became legends. They believed in their words becoming some of the greatest athletes and actors of our generation. While most of us have great intentions it is our actions that speak the loudest. Whether it’s an injury or a life changing tragedy or even a bad day at school or the office, the idea is to push through and don’t give up. Be the person you believe you can be. Don’t take NO for answer. Learn from your falls, make a decision, and get after it!
Mike Goleski, a Realtor with The Rogers-Long Team, started selling real estate in 1999. The RLT was thrilled to welcome Mike to the team in February of 2018 due to his competitive edge and disciplined attitude, which he learned from serving 6 years in the US NAVY as a SeaBee. In his spare time, you can find Mike on the golf course or even behind home plate umpiring an NCAA baseball game (you read that right!).
