When some people reach the bottom line they ask for help. Talking to someone when you’re in distress can really help but who are you actually talking to? Is it someone good at giving advice? At motivating you? Well if the answer is yes than this friend is a good wordsmith. But how many times you didn’t find anyone around you and you just googled “motivational quotes”? Maybe it seems dumb finding what you need to hear on the internet but it can help for sure!
There’s a bit of implicit coaching and power in those words. What makes their effect work is that humans are aspirational. They need to look up to someone, a role model, leader in every part of their life (job, sports, passion, art, acting…). For example, almost all basketball enthusiast follows Mikael Jordan, Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant… But the question is do these motivational quotes actually work?
Some scientist says that motivational inspirational quotes are the ideal self-encouragement. A well placed quote could provide a nugget of confidence or perspective just when needed. Others says that a perfect solution for someone to be inspired is a simple photo of nature.
Dean Burnett a Scottish photographer quoted: “I recently went to the gym for the first time in months, because my inability to climb the two flights of stairs to my office without needing to be defibrillated was becoming annoying. It was while desperately grappling some infernal contraption like I’d just fallen into the workings of Big Ben that I contemplated abandoning this whole “exercise” charade. But then I glanced at the wall and saw an image of a mountaintop, a stunning natural vista, underneath which was written something akin to “It takes effort to be all you can be”. I suddenly realized that, if I stuck at it and worked my hardest, I could be a mountain one day.”
So quotes can really be sheer you up but you should want to find an answer, a kind of help to your issue to be able to believe in what you read. Even though a quote have a positive effect it might not be the only thing to search for and for sure it cannot replace a friendly talk.
