Why do you need to learn these motivational stories

When life becomes dark and when everything goes wrong you will certainly lose hope and feel down. During that time you might ask for help from close friends or relatives only to find them putting you even more down!

Its so common that a friend of yours tells you that life is unfair thinking that he is helping you while in fact he is just asking you to give up, become helpless and to admit defeat without even noticing that he is doing so.

Whenever you recall these motivational stories you will manage to stand up again even if you fell hard.

motivational stories about life

  • 1) The story of M.J: M.J Always wanted to be a basketball player but he was expelled from his basketball high school team. If you were in M.J's shoes what would have you done? Would you have given up? Some people would not only give up on basketball if that happened to them but they would give up on all others sports as well! M.J refused to accept defeat and he decided to keep going until he became the Micheal Jordan we know today!

    "I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." A famous quote by Micheal Jordan

  • 2) The child who was not talented: From his early years he was passionate about music but his music teacher told him that he is hopeless. The teacher even went a step further and asked his parents not to let him put high hopes on that career. The little child decided not to give up or to believe his tutors and he became the Beethoven we know today! (see also How to get over any rejection)
  • 3) The story of Andy north: Life can sometimes be unfair, right? It was unfair to Andy by preventing him from ever playing football after it sent him a serious leg injury. Andy had to move using crutches but he didn't give up on sports. He decided to be a golf player but people told him that he can never become one while using crutches. Andy refused to listen to those people and he started practicing everyday. As the days passed his legs became stronger until he managed to get rid of the crutches and to win the U.S open championship twice! An achievement that most golfers who have no injuries didn't manage to do (see Impossible is nothing)
  • 4) The story of Ibrahim El Feky Ibrahim was an ambitious young man who wanted to work in the Hotel industry. He went for a job interview at one of the hotels but the manager told him "you are not fit for the hotel industry". Ibrahim left disappointed but he decided not to give up. He found a very humble job at a hotel ( washing dishes or something like that) and he quickly moved up the ranks until he became the hotel manager , then he got an award for being the best hotel manager in north America then he became one of the most popular motivational speakers in Canada, the whole Arab world and many other countries. Ibrahim invited that hotel manager who rejected him earlier to dinner and during their talk he told him that he was the young guy whom he rejected earlier! (see How to prove people who reject you wrong)
  • 5) My humble story: i can by no means compare myself to those geniuses but i have a humble story to tell about my life. When i was 23 years old i wrote down on a piece of paper that i will become a millionaire before the age of thirty. People didn't just reject the idea but they made fun of me all way long. I started many businesses that failed and this is where i used to hear the phrase "Didn't i tell you it was a stupid idea" often. I refused to give up and after 10 failed businesses (or maybe more) i managed to become a millionaire at the age of 28! (See Ultimate guide to becoming rich)

What can you learn from these motivational stories?

Even though those stories are completely different and even though they seem unrelated still there are some common points between them all, here they are:

  • People who succeed don't give weight to rejections: When i was 23 years old i submitted a sample of my writings to 2 publishing houses and both of them rejected it. When i was 25 i submitted some of my articles to a famous online investing magazine but my articles were rejected as well. Today, my website gets more than 1,200,000 page views per month. Yes the number is correct one million and two hundred thousand page views per month. I get thank you emails from people all around the world on daily basis for changing their lives through my writings. If you want to succeed in life then forget about rejections because most of them make no sense (see How to do miracles)
  • Solid faith: How can someone keep going in the face of rejections without losing hope? All successful people had solid faith in themselves and that's why their belief in themselves weren't shaken by rejections. The ultimate source of faith is God, if you believe in God then ask him for help. This will be enough to convince your subconscious mind that you will succeed no matter what. If you don't believe in God then here are some solid scientific proofs for his existence

I have managed to become a self made millionaire at the age of 28. This didn't happen by chance because i already wrote that goal down five years before i accomplished it. Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but its all about having certain beliefs about money and life.

In The Ultimate guide to becoming rich i will teach you everything that you need to know in order to become rich.
