I think one of the biggest barriers to success not only as a manager, but in life, is the ability to motivate yourself.
As a manager if you lack the desire to motivate yourself then the chances are that you do not have the capacity to motivate anyone else – your team especially.
I recently came across this video of a young American called Kyle Maynard, who was born with a congenital defect from birth and lost all of his limbs.
However this did not stop him carrying out his day to day life, he adapted to completing everyday activities and eventually ended up climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
Take a bit of time to watch this video – if this does not motivate you I don’t know what will!
