He's got the right idea
I've never got it why people find such people inspirational. It's like saying that you should be happy with your life because they have it worse in Sudan. Or that it doesn't matter that you were raped - no one should dictate how you feel. Or that you should be happy all alone and not yearn for a beloved since others shouldn't dictate how you feel.
It's all bullshit.
some people benefit from motivational speakers ..some don't.I have never been able to get inspiration from a motivational speaker..but I do believe in positive reinforcement..that we must constantly reinforce positive thoughts even when we are feeling useless and incompetent..even when we are laughed at..or left out..we have to tell ourselves we matter.Kind of Stewart Smalley but it is ultimately true.Thats why some people do gravitate towards these kinds of websites and speakers and stories.
very true post, i give you kudos for posting.
