At some point in time we have all come across an inspirational character in our lives. It might be our father, mother, sister, brother, friend, husband, wife, boss, a co-worker, and the list goes on. However, these days, we can find that inspirational character in the palm of our hands—on our mobile phones. Take a glance at your phone; go to your social media account; a few scrolls here and there and you’re on your way to finding a sea of inspirational quotes. Since there are a myriad of quotes popping up your screens, we have sifted the sea of speakers to recommend we think you should follow for motivation and inspiration for work.
- Gary Vaynerchuk. Have you ever read a quote that is so motivating that you can almost audibly hear the person speaking to you? That’s the energy Gary Veynurchuck projects in all of his social media accounts. Audacity, positivity, passion and enthusiasm are just few adjectives that describe him. He yearns for people to be happy and successful. Watch his vlogs and you’ll know what I mean. Excuse his occasional “French” though, as he would say, his cursing comes from his Jersey roots. He aims to provide cleaner vlog versions in the future.
- Brian Tracey. When you walk down the isles of the business, self-help or motivational sections at Barnes’s and Noble or any bookstore, no doubt you’ll find a book cover with a suited-up gentleman, posing with a pleasant smile, and older-and-wiser vibe. This gentleman is Brian Tracey. Although, his talks and writings may have been re-purposed repeatedly, his message about effective strategies in work, business management, and life in general is timeless. No wonder we see his common-sense methods shared across different social media platforms.
- Mel Robbins. She went from being unemployed, having financial and family problems, to becoming a renowned speaker, best-selling author and more! Mel Robbins’ story started one morning as she lay in bed. She heard the alarm ring, and she decided not to think about her problems and started counting backwards. Famous for her 5-second rule; no, it’s not the license to eat food on the floor kind of 5 second rule. Here’s how she puts it, “If you have an impulse to act on a goal, you must physically move within 5 seconds, or your brain will kill the idea.” This is just one of many scientifically proven methods Mel discovered, and she is now sharing more effective methods to help people be happy and successful.
Now that we know some of the people behind the quotable quotes in memes and hashtag-ble hashtags in Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and across different multimedia platforms, when you’re feeling down just pull out some Gary V’s, Brian Tracey’s, or Mel Robbins’ quotes; count 5-4-3-2-1 and get back on track! Because by the end of the day, just like Gary V. always says, execution is the only thing that matters.
