Live To Be Remembered

Live To Be Remembered

What is your legacy? What will people remember you for? Will you be remembered for your kindness or your bad attitude? And, what do you want people to remember about you? 

I have written many motivational posts, but these Words Of Wisdom may be my most important…

If you want an easy life then go be Normal.

But, if you are willing to take on the challenges and difficulties of life, then get ready to be remembered.

Leave A Legacy

Every day we have the opportunity to leave a mark on all those in which we come across. And, the opportunity to give people something to remember us for.

We can stand out, or be invisible. We can present them with kindness, or leave them with a bad feeling towards us.

You cannot just make up a lifetime of wrongdoing, and bad impressions, with a few kind acts. What we do every single day matters!

You have one shot at making every day a success.

It doesn’t matter what you choose to do with your life, as long as you choose to make an impression when you do it. If you are a teacher, have an office job, do a service, sell products, create things, or work for yourself; be the best at it.

Whatever you do with your life, be the best you can be at it. Be the one that everyone looks up too, and put your heart into every moment.

You don’t need to be famous to be great. You just have to show yourself, how great you are, and can be. Some of the world’s greatest people were only ever known to a few people. And yet they made a lasting impression.

Everything you do, everything you say, every choice you make, every interaction, every day, every moment, you need to leave a lasting impression that you are someone worth remembering…forever.

My Dream

To be remembered. That is my dream, and that is my motivation. That is the motivation behind everything I do and have done. I want to be remembered by everyone that I interact with. I want to leave an impact on people’s lives so that they always remember who Ryan J. Mathias is.

I am not perfect, and I have no extraordinary powers. But I do try to help people as much as I can. I hope that I have helped you in some way and given you something to remember me by. And, I hope I have helped you find your motivation and given you some valuable wisdom to continue forward with.

I Believe In You

I want you to know that I believe in your ability to be successful.

The same as I beleive in myself, I believe in you and I want you to achieve your dreams. I want you to continue along your journey to success and help to change the world!

So, never stop fighting for your dreams and always live to be remembered!

Always remember, you are not average and never will be!

You are here to make an impression that everyone wants to emulate, but just can’t replicate! You are leading your own journey to success and carving a new path for the world to follow!

And there’s nothing that can stop you!

You are not only going to reach the mountain top but raise the peak higher! You are great, and you are rememberable!

Now go Change The World!

Live each day as if to build your legacy and to be remembered for the greatness in you.

Your Future Is Up To You

Your Future Is Up To You

Your future is up to you. No one can make you do anything. You have to choose what to do, then take action. If you want to have a successful future, then you have to make it happen. And if you want to achieve your dreams, then you have to fight for them. Whatever your future becomes, is up to you. So, you have to make the future you want.

Leave A Legacy

The decisions you make should reflect the future you want.

Live your future not only for yourself but also for those that follow in your footsteps. Because your future does not only affect you. It affects those around you.

If you want to create a better future for your family, then it starts with you. You are constantly paving a path for others to walk down. You can create an easier path for others while creating your own success.

It’s not about how far you can go, but how far you can lead others in the same direction. Those that follow you will carry on your legacy.

Be the foundation they need to succeed and present them with a legacy that they can build on!

Work For It

Then, you have to work towards creating your future every day and be motivated by the dreams you have. Visualize what you want and base your decisions off of that image every day.

Plan your path to success and walk along with it. Figure out what you need to do everyday in order to keep working towards your successful future and do it.

Don’t hold back, push forward. Be strong and take on the hard challenges with passionate intensity. Be confident and respect others along the path.

Your future is in your hands, and it is your responsibility to create it. So, go get it!

Be Nice, Not Right

It’s More Important To Be Nice, Than It Is To Be Right

These days we get so caught up with trying to be right that we often forget to be nice. However, people don’t like others that are always right. They like others that are always nice.

If you are nice, then people will help you. If you are always correcting people, they see you as someone that already knows how to solve your own problems.

So, be nice to those around you and the “right” answer will come.

Let The Little Things Go

Learn to let the little things go.

Too often I see so many people, from children to teens to even adults, bickering about the simplest things in life that really don’t matter.

Why is it so important to be right, and correct those that may have a different thought or idea then you?

Why can’t we all see life differently and be ok with unanswered questions?

And why can’t we just live and let others believe what they want?

Remember, it is ok to be wrong or think differently. How else would we grow? If we didn’t make mistakes, then so many things would never have been invented.

Learn to let things that don’t matter go. Believe what you want to believe and let others do the same. Be open to being wrong, and don’t worry about correcting others on everything. Let them live and learn so they can grow too.

Live and Learn

If it’s not hurting anything, then let others live and learn.

Who knows…you might just learn something yourself!

It’s never a joy to be around someone that always must be right and corrects everyone around them. It is much more fun to be around someone that may sometimes be wrong but is always nice.

So, be the nice one. Help others learn new things, but be kind while teaching. If their beliefs are different, let them be different. You can’t tell someone what they believe. They must make that decision on their own.

If what they are doing is safe, then let them live and learn. Who knows…they may see something you don’t and find a better way of doing something that you can learn from!

The New Golden Rule

The New Golden Rule

The Golden Rule has been held in high reguard for a very long time. Almost every religion and culture has their own variation to the principle. However, many seem to forget one very important thing…we do not all wish to be treated the same. So, in these Words Of Wisdom we will teach you the New Golden Rule and how you can help others thrive through individual interaction.


The Old Golden Rule

“Treat others as you wish to be treated.”

There are many different versions of the “Golden Rule”, but this is the simple version most people know it as today.

Don’t let your lack of motivation hold you back from achieving your goals!

What does the Golden Rule Mean?

First, the main principle behind the “Golden Rule” is to be kind to others (which we should all do). However, as we know, everyone is different and everyday our emotions change. Sometimes we need some extra support, kindness, freedom, a pep talk, or just a little love. 

So, by using the word “you” in the Golden Rule, it gives people the wrong impression that everyone wishes to be treated the same. And this is just not true. Though it is always appropriate to start each interaction by being respectful of other’s feelings, not everyone likes to be treated the same as you do.

Think of the people around you. Are they all the same as you? Do they have your personality? Probably not. It’s likely they are all different.

So, if you truly want to do good and help others, sometimes we need to give more than just standard kindness to different people. Sometimes they need to be lifted up or helped to move forward. While at other times they may need to be brought back to reality with some hard truth.


The New Golden Rule

It is aways better to treat others with the New Golden Rule.

“Treat others as they wish to be treated.”

Of course we cannot read minds and don’t immediately know what other’s want. Plus, you should never assume the emotions of others, and we do not owe anyone anything more than to be kind and respectful. However, those that want to help others, need to go above and beyond treating everyone the same all the time.

What You Can Do

First, all we have to do is pay a little attention to how people interact around us, in order to see what we can do to truly help them. After some practice you can learn pretty quickly who needs some space and who needs some help. All you have to do is PAY ATTENTION!

However, the best way to learn what others want from you, is to ask. You can learn a lot from simply just asking. 

These days, many people forget to, or just avoid, asking people what they want. Yet, that is the best way to learn how you can best interact with others.

So many people look to avoid conflict or just let things stay the same because they are afraid of asking about simple things. It’s not that hard, and it can really help change whatever problems there may be. So just ask!

Help Others Thrive

So, from now on, when you interact with others around you, think of their personality and how they may want to be treated. Do they need some support, kindness, freedom, a pep talk, or a little love? Do they need more than just the Golden Rule?

Whatever it may be, give them what they need to thrive, rather than assuming that they are the same as you, or others around them. Let others be individuals and be respectful of their way of life.

Treat others respectfully, and as they wish to be treated.

Plus, when you give people more than they are expecting, then they will want to do the same for you, and others, in return. They will be motivated to present you with more, and help raise you up too. You will then become a team, building each other up as you push forward in life, creating success.

Lift others up, and they will return the favor!

Take Responsibility for Your Actions and Life

How To Take Responsibility for your Actions and Life

Learning how to take responsibility for your actions can change your life. If you don’t like what you have, then use it as motivation to create a better life for yourself! Unfortunately, too many people avoid taking responsibility for their actions and failures because they feel it shows weakness. However, failure does not show weakness; a lack of responsibility does.

Failure proves that you were willing to step up and take the risk. While avoiding responsibility proves that you are weak enough to blame others. So, take responsibility for your actions. Take responsibility for your decisions. And take responsibility for your life. Don’t blame others for the position you are in. You create your own life, and if you don’t like the life you have, make a new one!

Make a life that you are proud to take responsibility for!

Be Equally Responsible for your Successes AND Failures

You are going to fail, and you are going to succeed. If you are unwilling to take responsibility for your failures, then you cannot accept responsibility for your successes either.

We see this too often in team sports. Many individual players put the blame on others for losses while they take full responsibility for the team’s successes. However, if one person is so influential for a win, then they are also just as responsible for a loss.

True leaders take responsibility not only for themselves but also for those they lead. If they lead others to failure, then they take responsibility. If they lead others to greater success, then they take some responsibility as well. So, to be a successful leader, team, or individual you must take responsibility for everything that occurs, good or bad. 

Whether directly or indirectly, our influence has an effect on everything we interact with. Will your influence be one of blaming others and putting failures on others, or will you take responsibility and lead a path to success?

Learn To Be Responsible for Everything

Remember, it is ok to fail. Just take responsibility and learn from it. Be responsible for the changes you make to succeed. Be responsible for the things you do every day to create a better life for yourself, and others. And be responsible for a life of success and for creating a path for others to follow. Be responsible for changing the world!

The responsibility you take on for yourself and those around you should motivate you to push forward. You should want to be better for your spouse, for your kids, and for everyone that will come after them. It should motivate you to fight for your success and know that you cannot fail.

So, let the responsibility you hold on to motivate your dreams and give you the strength to fight harder! Be motivated to create a legacy that you are responsible for!
