As the title suggests, I aim to inspire and motivate people through my blogging and in life. Granted not all the posts regard motivation and determination but I wish to include them more often. My reasons are simple.
I haven’t been ‘well off’, nor have I been blessed or given stuff on a silver plate. My grades aren’t perfect and I’ve held a low paying job for 2 years before my current one whilst trying to progress in life. I’ve made mistakes, I’ve not had a perfect life – but I’ve never let it stop me. The reason? I want to make my family proud, I want to make something of myself and not end up doing something I don’t enjoy. I want others to do the same.
Confidence isn’t everything, it’s the ability to push yourself to the very edge of your capabilities and to keep pushing until whatever obstacle you’re against gives in. It’s about finding ways around life’s obstacles and not giving up when you fall down. Determination is key, perseverance is a must have but most of all – remember what you want. Know what you want.
Like I said, I haven’t always been successful in my choices. Sometimes a new way had to be found, plans had to be altered and changes needed to be made. I’ve always had various routes set up, if one fails use another until you hit your ultimate goal. I’m still in my journey to become a lawyer; I’m even starting the university of law in September! I’ll soon have my law degree, masters and legal practise course certificate behind me. I don’t aim to stop there either, I want to make changes and influence change too.
Don’t make a limit or an ultimate goal, set different goals and make each higher than the last. The same applies for everything – I didn’t want to make a blog at first but was influenced to do so. Now it’s not looking too bad. I didn’t think I would have a nice car at 21, but I have an Audi A3 at the top of my garden – I’ve been working since just before 17 trying to get the things I wanted. It’s worked so far, I’ll say that.
My point is simple: giving up isn’t an inevitability of circumstance, it’s a choice. You fall down, stand back up and carry on – use it to energise you and to motivate you. I have people around me who believe in me and support me, I’m extremely grateful for this and it helps a lot. Use this to help you feel confident and determined. I’m the only person in my family who has (nearly) a degree and who is going into a specialised field; aim high and you can reach that if you try hard enough.
Think of your ultimate goal and comment below what it is, or just think about it and how you will achieve it.

Ciao for now.
