Motivation Quotes: Stop, Look and Readfrom: Christine P Gray
What makes motivational quotes that people see in their passing so effective? The answer to these is the use of words. For years, advertising has developed their campaign to make people stop and think about what is written. These words can really stop people in their tracks if they are done effectively.
Part of the marketing strategy of companies that aim to promote their products or services is through posting motivation quotes in places where people can see them. These people are aware that the powerful words they are using are enough to penetrate through the hard shells of the most sensitive person.
These advertisers are aware of the fact that it is really the words that are making an impact on people. Never mind the related products being offered. There are varieties of them out in the market. The thing that people remember is what really motivates them. And these are simple yet powerful quotes.
For example, you are walking in the mall. You are the typical person working and trying to make a decent living. Your eyes came upon a quote saying something about having a bight future for your family. Then bingo! The wheels in your head have started rolling and you suddenly realized that you are not really making anything out of your life.
After that, you begin evaluating your work and what you are capable of. You notice that your potentials are not really enhanced in your present job and that you have not grown over the time you spent working.
You saw an opportunity with another company and you grabbed that chance. You were offered a salary not much different with what you are earning before. But you feel that you have a growth potential in this one. Before you know it, you were given promotion and raise. Thinking back on the years wasted, you regretted that you have not seen that quote earlier.
This is really happening in real life. A lot of people have been inspired by motivation quotes to reach for their goals or attain what they have not really put much attention on before the words got to them.
With the number of motivational books, ebooks, and CDs that are being offered today, people can just grab one or browse for one anytime and anywhere they want to. Some may even read them when they have time to spare. After that, these things will stay buried and forgotten in some corner of the mind and in a dark bookshelf.
According to experts, understanding what these things are saying cannot be attained just by reading them the first time. These experts believe that for the words to sink in, they have to be read over and over. In the process of the repetition, the essence behind the words is realized.
There are simple words and sentences that can mean a lot. There are also those that impart a message even though it is not stated there. The common denominator among them is that they sere their purpose well in motivating others about facts and tidbits of life.
So the next time you encounter a motivational quote, stop and think. Is it written so well that it hit its intended mark? Did it made you think? That is the power of motivation words and quotes at work.
