Even the most successful career girls need a little dose of motivation sometimes. We’re not anything more than human, and from time to time we could all do with an extra push. And all it can really take is just a few words of encouragement to get you inspired. For me, watching motivational videos really gives me the power to go after the week harder. Especially when those encouraging words come from someone you look up to! And as it’s the new year, and we’re working hard to kick off our goals we need to make sure we’re always feeling ready!
1. Don’t believe what others think of you:
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t and don’t let anyone else stop you from going after your goals. Don’t believe other people’s limitations on you. That’s just their opinion. They don’t know you and they don’t know how hard you will work. Albert Einstein’s teacher told him he wouldn’t go far in life. What if he believed that? This inspirational speech by Taraji P Henson will remind you that you can accomplish anything, no matter what stands in your way.
2. Bouncing back:
We all love J.K and we love her even more after this inspirational message! Before she was successful she wrote Harry Potter in Starbucks, and although people consider her an overnight success, she did not start out that way. She failed, again and again. She failed to be published, she failed to write the book that was in her head. Her marriage failed. She only got to where she is today on the back of all those failures. If you’re worried about failing, you might as well stop trying. Listen to this speech and be inspired.
3. Feel empowered:
Remember this speech? It was trending at the time because it made us all feel empowered and fierce. A proud feminist, Emma really works to empower and uplift women to go after what they deserve. Not only does she fight for women’s rights, she fights to have equality across the board. For men to be able to express their sensitive side, for women to earn as much as men and for a fairer world. This speech will move you and empower you to be all that you want to be and not to let anything stop you!
4. Don’t miss out:
A career isn’t about climbing a ladder and following a well-structured path, instead, it’s about finding and seeking out opportunities and taking them. It’s not about chasing promotions and working for a bigger title, it’s about making an impact where you can and do something really special! Let Sheryl Sandberg inspire you to go after what you really want, even if the path you’re taking isn’t a traditional one.
5. Fall forward:
This inspiring speech from Denzel Washington will teach you the importance of failure, without you wouldn’t figure out where you needed to be. He gives you some real insight into how important failure has been for history and how important will be for you. Let it encourage you!
6. Work towards a better future:
We all love, love, love Oprah Winfrey. Her Golden Globes speech blew us away, she was so powerful, so well-spoken. Her speech was perfect, it was executed beautifully and, with the sentiments behind the #metoo campaign fresh in everybody’s mind, Oprah hits the point home about creating a better future for our children, about learning from these events, about the strength of abused women and men, and about working together for the greater good. It gave us chills.
