Do you need a motivational lift? From time to time we all need words of inspiration that will lift us and take us to higher places when we feel low. There have been many times I just didn’t feel like doing something and all it took was a simple someone calling out my name and it perked me right up. In other words, I was motivated by something extremely simple but produced maximum results.

Point blank, there are going to be times in your life where you need just a little pep talk to get you going in the right direction and I have provided that pep talk in Daily Fuel with Terry Thompson. For more Daily Fuel, click link below and inspire yourself to personal and professional success.

“Regardless of how painful it is to our ego or pride, sometimes we all need a little outside perspective.”

Have you ever seen or been around one of those people that absolutely refuses to seek and/or take anyones help and/or advice? Sometimes we need a little outside perspective.

Generally speaking, when someone offers advice or help they are not trying to impose, be rude, or overstep their boundaries by thinking that you are dumb/stupid. They are merely offering a helping hand from their perspective because they seen something that maybe you didn’t.

So, the next time someone offers their assistance, don’t hesitate to at least give it a try. You never know, it may just be what was needed from a different perspective.

You have to learn to pick and choose your battles. But what if everything is a battle?  I can assure you that everything is not a battle.  Not everything is worth arguing over.  Not everything is worth your time and more importantly your energy and health.  If we let every little thing get to us and we feel we need to defend our ground, our lives would be miserable all the time and there would never be any rest for the weary.  Below are some things you should consider when picking your battle.

  1. Is the battle worth your time, effort, and energy?
  2. Can you win the battle or is it a never ending escapade?
  3. Do you have a solution to make things better, or are you just arguing for argument sake?
  4. Is there a common ground that everyone can agree upon?
  5. Does the battle even matter to the “big picture” of things?
  6. Will this battle cause resentment and undue hardship later affecting a professional or personal relationship?
  7. Will this battle have a profound impact on the lives of others?

These are just a few.  Join the conversation and let me know of any other considerations you can think of that might help you pick your next battle or just forget about it.
