Need some inspiration during this time? Following on from our last blog where we highlighted the sheer amount of movies we’ve been watching, here are some quotes from those movies that are bound to get you motivated and ready to tackle the day
“Don’t let anyone ever make you feel like you don’t deserve what you want.”
– 10 Things I Hate About You
Finding it tough to get through to leads with your emails and calls? Did your recent blog post not perform as well as you hoped? Perhaps SO-AND-SO gave you a hard time?
Don’t let it get to you. At the end of the day no one should make you feel bad for simply doing your job and trying to achieve your goals. The best thing you can do is look at what you could improve for the next time and move on, you never know, perhaps they’ve just had a bad day!
“It’s what you do right now that makes a difference.”
– Black Hawk Down
With everything that’s going on right now, every single decision and action we take as individuals and as businesses will have a cause and effect. Choose wisely with what you want to do right now, after-all it will be the actions that get remembered.
“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”
– Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
The wise Gandalf the Grey is not one to question! We have a lot of time on our hands now, so all we can do is decide what to do with it.
Will you take the opportunity to set your business up for future leads, or will you accept defeat and binge watch Brooklyn 99? (Best case scenario, take the opportunity then binge watch Brooklyn 99! Success!)
“Our lives are defined by opportunities, even the ones we miss.”
– The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Interesting movie this one, and a great quote.
Our success and failures are what define us. You can’t take advantage of every opportunity, you’re only human. But you can decide on which ones are worth pursuing. Like this one now, you’re reading this blog to get yourself inspired. Top work!
”Nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t how hard you can hit. It’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.”
– Rocky Balboa
Rocky gets it. He keeps going and doesn’t give up. The same goes for us and our businesses. Let’s keep pushing to do more, help each other, and get out of this pandemic knowing we’ve done our best!
“Do, or do not. There is no ‘try’.”
– Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
Look, you may say you’re going to try this, and try that but if you’re not doing it then it’s not going to get done. That’s ok if you acknowledge it. Work to your strengths, outsource and delegate to others where they are stronger. After all, that’s what makes a good leader.
And that’s it! With all that’s said and done, at the end of the day, we just got to keep swimming (Cheers Dory!)
