Our mantra at Lucramotives is: “Know Your Worth.” Knowing our worth is fundamental in order to succeed in our endeavors. We have to know what each of us can bring to the table. To accomplish this, we have to first know ourselves. Study world history–especially that which pertains to your ancestry. Study the human anatomy–learn how our bodies operate and what you can do to make it more efficient. Study our ecosystem and how are very being is dependent on it. These are just a few examples to get us started.
Having a decent understanding of each of these subjects will give you a new perspective not only of the world, but of yourself. You see, we live in a world today that wants to categorize us. We feel the need to carry certain labels, often times not even of our choosing, but we accept them. From a young age, many of us are taught to fit into a certain mold or else we will be looked at as failures or outcasts. This often leads us down the path of having to compromise our morals, our dreams, our happiness, our VALUE just to fit in. Just to keep up and go with the flow so we don’t get left behind.
Lucramotives strives to empower everyone in all walks of life. We encourage you to never compromise your value as a human being. Respect yourself, believe in yourself, but, first, KNOW YOURSELF. There is no limit to what we could accomplish collectively with this fundamental way of not just thinking, but living. It all starts with self.
When you look at those we would consider to be successful, what is one thing you noticed? Aside from the dedication, perseverance, hard work, etc. what was one of, if not the biggest, reasons for many of them to become rich?
Besides those who were born into it, many wealthy people came from the bottom. They know what struggle feels like. The common denominator in many of these millionaires’ stories, as to the reason they wanted to make acquire riches, was they wanted to do it for a cause greater than themselves. One of these causes includes providing for their family. With that kind of driving force, you are ready to take on the world.
So, what is your driving force? It is my belief that as long as your goals are foundated on something for the greater good of someone/something other than yourself, then it will happen. Those people willing to go the extra mile and sacrifice everything for someone/something else will certainly get what they deserve in due time. Why? Because with that much passion and that strong of a desire, they will accomplish that goal or die trying; IF it is for something bigger than themselves.
What is the source of the light in your life? In other words, what is it that keeps you going even in the midst of darkness? Is it your family? Your kids? Your religious beliefs? Non-religious beliefs? Your inner ambitions and/or goals? Or maybe just faith itself and knowing that, “this, too, shall pass?” Inevitably, we will have to weather a lot of tough storms throughout our lives. Many people have folded under the pressure that these times put on them. My message to you all is, find your source(s) of light. Something that will keep you focused despite the darkness that may be surrounding you at any given point in your life. With this light, we can never be knocked off our square. This light will be your strength, your hope, and could be your saving grace. This light will give you direction and serve as a solid foundation to stand upon. Without light, it is very easy to get lost in darkness and some never find their way back. Always focus on the light.
Things happen in life. Things that are totally out of our control. At times, we allow these things to stagnate us and hinder us from moving forward. Or, we allow distractions to get the best of us, causing us to get sidetracked for a period of time. We even allow our own doubts, fears, and insecurities to come between us and whatever it is we’re hoping to get accomplished. The key to overcoming each of these obstacles is to stay focused. Develop a sort of tunnel vision and only acknowledge what you CHOOSE to. You might be asking, “how the hell do you CHOOSE to acknowledge something?” By choosing what we acknowledge, we are keeping full control of our lives and not being stagnated by external forces. Nothing can hinder our growth if we don’t allow it to. Always be consciously aware of what’s going on around you so that you can handle it accordingly rather than letting it control you. We may stop and smell the roses and venture off our paths from time to time, but never lose sight of the bigger picture.
Another video from world renowned author Napoleon Hill where he talks about the Law of Attraction. He doesn’t talk about it so much in those words, but everything he’s saying defines this phenomenon. As I’ve said, many great figures in history have emphasized the power our minds have so it’s time we all acknowledge this and strive to use it to the best of our abilities to further improve our lives as well as others’. Enjoy the video.
Point blank period. Whether it’s street smarts or book smarts, some form of education is required to get anywhere. This quote is self-explanatory and the truth is self-evident so there’s no need to elaborate any further. This also ties in perfectly with my previous post.
Yes indeed, Dr. King. Progress is the only option. Anything that hinders your progress in any area of your life needs to be promptly cut off. Also, never be discouraged by the amount of progress you make. Slow progress is better than no progress. Just regroup and restrategize your plans on how you will accomplish the next goal on your checklist.
