Welcome to My Motivation Page! A great place to see into what motivates me plus quotes, pictures and snippets to put a smile on your face or nod your head in agreement.
What is my motivation? As a typical Dyspraxic person my motivation comes from pretty much no where- I’m just a natural hard worker that doesn’t want to quit easily. I can always fall back on my friends and family for moral support and motivation; however there were very dark times in my life and I did feel very much alone. Basking in the cold beams of dread…for these moments I referred back to a single object to keep me on track.
I acquired this item during my time at school on a visit to an abbey…at the time I had a hit a real bad low, my self-esteem was non-existent and it was affecting my everyday life. Hiding away in a basket in the gift shop was a metallic coin inscribed with a ‘few’ words of wisdom. When I saw it a small part of my self esteem was restored and I kept it safe and read it to myself occasional to keep my spirits stable.
Here it is in written form:
When things go wrong,
As they sometimes will
When the road you’re
Trudging seems all uphill
Don’t You Quit
You want to
Smile, but you have to
Sigh. When care
Is pressing you down
A bit, by all means pray
It’s when things go wrong that you
For those who are interested here is the full poem I found on the internet
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
Numquam Deficere = Never Give Up
