Be a Motivator

Be a Motivator

In this fastest growing world we all aim for better life and in this journey we are sometimes de-motivated due to some reasons and we continuously look for ways in which we stay motivated. We try our best to keep ourselves motivated and gain success.

Aiming for ourselves is not wrong but today let us think about others as well. This article is not for self motivation but for motivating others.

There are many factors which de-motivate us in our daily lives. It is very natural that this factor applies to everyone.

One such factor is MISTAKE.

We being humans do make mistakes at some point of time in our lives. And we are taught to rectify the mistakes which we commit.

We commit mistakes and expect forgiveness from others. The Question that we really need to ask ourselves today is that, “Do we really FORGIVE when a mistake is committed by others”?

Forgive and motivate

Friends, the fact is that we do our best in making a person feel guilty about their mistakes. Instead of helping the person to rectify and improve we are busy de-motivating the person by showing his/her mistakes repeatedly.

Sometimes the mistakes are so big that we are unable to forgive. But if we are unable to love and motivate the person, we can at least try not to de-motivate the person. Instead be a motivator.

Making the person realize their mistakes again when they have already realized is meaningless.

Remember – “The Wrong doers will get their own reward and that reward will be greater than what a man can give”


And how can we forget the Golden Rule – “Do to others what you want them to do for you”.

As I stated earlier that the article is not about self motivation but about being a motivator. Take a look at the table and lets compare our behavior towards ourselves and towards others.

  For Self – What You say, For Others – What You do,
Mistakes I grow and Learn from mistakes You Make them feel guilty
Love I need love I hate that person
Judge I am always right He is wrong

I would just conclude by stating that we need support from each other to grow in life. So be a motivator in other’s life.
