Gotta search the inner strength inside of you…

« Cause sometimes you just feel tired.
You feel weak and when you feel weak you feel like you wanna just give up.
But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength
and just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up
and not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse. »

Those words dropped out of the song « Till I collapse » from the Eminem Show are much more than a lesson about how to behave when you’re experiencing bad times, they are a real life philosophy. When you are in a bad mood, when everything seems so dark, you can be tempted to give up your dreams and hopes. Eminem constantly brings us back to the importance of the willpower. It is always so easy not to go to the end when we feel weak or depressed. Most of the people make this choice. But is this choice the right choice ? Certainly not !

It is really uncomfortable to live one’s whole life with broken dreams. Of course, going to the end requires a lot of personal efforts and sacrifices, but you will be rewarded for them . You have something to win. That’s why you need to find that inner strength and motivation Eminem is talking about. Nobody will do this for you, you will have to do it by yourself.
Eminem has shown so many times by his own example that it is worth having faith in yourself and following your dreams.
The sentence « You can do anything you set your mind to, man » summarizes it very well.
Marshall encourages people to follow their dreams the way he did :

« If there’s something that you want to do and you work hard enough at it, you’ll do it. But you have to know that’s what you want to do, whatever it is. If it’s riding bikes, if it’s painting cars, whatever it is, if you want to do it bad enough and you have your heart set on it and that’s your dream,don’t give up your fucking dream.”

Those words are a real encouragement and teach us not to give up our dream. The answer is inside of you. You have to believe in yourself. There is no specific receipt for each individual, but if you apply to this and if you work hard at it, you will be on your way to the road of success.

One thought on “Gotta search the inner strength inside of you…”

  1. ACHIEVING THE IMPOSSIBLE

    Believe

    When anyone tells you that something is impossible what
    is your response? Not only your outward reaction, what
    are your inner thoughts?

    Do you accept it and go on thinking to yourself, “Yeah! It’s
    probably too hard too…” or “They’re right. That could never
    work.” Or do you just passively go on with your existence
    never to give it another thought?

    Well listen. S T O P thinking that way. Before you achieve
    anything that you think may be even a little difficult, you
    must – repeat – YOU MUST own the belief that it is not only
    possible, it is probable. Then, owning that belief, ask
    yourself some very focused questions.

    Questions:

    What do I want?
    What is the first step I should take to be one step
    closer to achieve what I am after?
    Who can clear up any lack of knowledge that I need
    to achieve this?
    What is my plan to get from Point A to Point B?
    The most important objective to achieve anything on this
    planet (or out of this world) is to believe. Without belief
    there is nothing.

    Become

    Become what you focus on. Whether you want to or not you will become what you concentrate your efforts on. If you concentrate on achieving wealth, you will become aware of opportunities to achieve that wealth.

    If you allow yourself to become consumed with bad things
    that happen to you, you will become a person that bad
    things happen to.

    You need to become just like the person you want to be
    like. This requires reading and diving into the lives of those
    who have already achieved what you are striving for.

    You must become a filter for what you allow in and what you push out. Do this by reading what you want to learn. Listen to audio books that support your goals. Talk with people who build up your ideas.

    Just remember you will become what you want to achieve
    even if others say it’s impossible.

    Beware

    Beware of the idiots. I have a friend who has a brilliant
    outlook on life. He is an entrepreneur and has a lot of great
    ideas. Not only are they great ideas they actually make
    him money.

    There are plenty of people who would look at him and his
    ideas and tear down any effort he would make at trying to
    achieve.

    Here’s the part you need to adopt and adapt to your way
    of life.

    To the people who tear down or do not support his ideas
    are automatically dismissed as idiots. Those who support
    him and his ideas are always geniuses. That’s a great way
    to win! Develop your genius tribe. Totally ignore and dismiss
    the idiot pool.

    Now you don’t have to be so raw about it calling people
    idiots (although it may help). You can still apply the same
    principle. Beware of the nay-sayers. Embrace the encouragers.

    Surround yourself with geniuses.

    Few things will kill a million-dollar idea faster than idiots
    telling you it can’t work.

    Be You

    The last sentence “Few things will kill a million-dollar idea
    faster than an idiot telling you it can’t work.” is SO true.
    Another thing that will kill a million-dollar idea faster than
    anything is not being yourself.

    Being yourself is the most unique thing you can offer
    anyone. Why would you want to rob yourself of the
    most valuable asset you can offer?

    Trying to be someone else is a nasty habit that is so
    transparent it turns off everyone who sees it. Don’t do it.
    No one likes a phony. But everyone loves those who love
    being themselves.

    People are attracted to those who are glad to be themselves and are confident in who they are. These people understand that they are valuable being the only person they can be. Be yourself and don’t be ashamed of you.

    Once you have accepted that you are valuable and are sure
    in who you are, you will begin to notice in a very short time
    that people will begin to be attracted to you. They will want
    to be around you and unconsciously want what you have got.

    Use your YOU power. Be yourself and you will be on your way to successful living.

    Successful living isn’t easy. It’s simple but it isn’t necessarily
    easy. Stay tuned throughout the year for more valuable
    ideas and tools that will help you accomplish what others
    would call “The Impossible”.

    Until next time keep looking and living forward.
