Finding Motivation with Jermaine Jones

Finding Motivation with Jermaine Jones

By | Blog | No Comments

Motivation is a key element of our daily lives. It drives us, influences us and keeps us going. Many companies hire an occasional motivational speaker, they are the perfect neutral party to give employees a fresh perspective, to inspire them and to boost overall morale.

When an audience hears a first-person account of triumph over adversity, they can be inspired to overcome the adversities they face in their own lives or in the workplace that are often trivial by comparison.

Jermaine Jones, Founder and CEO of Brothers Making a Difference of New Jersey, recently made an impromptu visit to one of our internal staff meetings.

Jermaine’s story revolves around a severe bout of depression brought on by the sudden loss of his 14-year job and his ability to finally claw his way out and rebuild himself.

“Scrambling to find a purpose in life can be the most horrifying experience, but every single one of us has to go through it. I personally believe that once we find that purpose, we should help others find their own. A person who has found their purpose is content and finally feels free,” Jones told us.

While listening to Jermaine’s speech, 6 important themes were discussed and are represented below using 6 well known quotes.

 

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work. “Teamwork makes the dream work.”

– John C. Maxwell

As Andrew Carnegie says, “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organization objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”

It is important to remember that real success cannot be accomplished without teamwork. We can only go so far by ourselves.

Surrounding ourselves with people who have different skills, talents and networks allows us to grow and succeed in ways we couldn’t on our own.

 

“There are many shortcuts to failure, but there are no shortcuts to true success.”

– Orrin Woodward

In today’s world many of us are so eager to accomplish success that we willingly take advantage of perceived shortcuts that come our way. But, in reality these shortcuts usually lead to disappointment and a step backward in our success.

The key to long-term success is putting in and being committed to the necessary effort, time and work to accomplish each individual step on the way to success.

 

Thinking!“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” – Norman Vincent Peale

Many inspirational books have been written on the topic of changing your thoughts to change your world. The idea is mind-over-matter. Our brain is a powerful machine and our thoughts can affect how we feel, our health and our success.

Use your thoughts to give positive direction to your life and to develop and road map to your happiness and success.

 

“I don’t want to over-promise and under-deliver.” – Larry Hogan

This quote is used constantly in today’s professional world, to the point that it has almost become a cliché. There are people who agree and disagree with the thought that promising less than you can deliver will make you look more successful.

The important note here is that it is critical that we remain open and honest when communicating our skills, experiences and expectations.

 

Traffic.“There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.” – Roger Staubach

Going the extra mile is a great concept. It can be hard to stand out today, to differentiate ourselves in a society the has had so much success. The idea of being original, can be daunting.

So instead, be true to yourself, do something without being asked, provide exceptional customer service or offer a helping hand to someone who doesn’t expect it – go the extra mile.

 

Alone.“The true test of a man’s character is what he does when no one is watching.” – John Wooden

A “good person” cannot be defined by a bank account, a job title or one’s possessions. In my opinion, your worth is defined by the relationships you establish in your life and are able to maintain.

Who are you when noone is watching?

 

Jermaine Jones did a wonderful job of resetting my perspective on what is important. Every once in a while, we need to put the hectic day to day of our lives on the back burner and ask ourselves if we are the person we want to be.

Are there things we can change, or improve? How do we get there?
