Finding Motivation, Optimism and Taking a Mental Health Break. Lack of Optimism is the barrier to success for most people If you want to know how to find motivation, the answer is to create moments in life that will help you move forward when you reflect on them later. New York City is the one place in the world I know I can find inspiration no matter what. Inspiration, motivation, and perspective are a part of success that is often overlooked by most people. They forget that as human beings the factors to our moral are our foundation and you add more practical things to that later in your execution. You need drive, you need a reason to do the work. Find the motivation to work harder than I've ever worked in spite of personal life setbacks or health situations, is something that I don't take for granted because I know that not taking care of your mental health can have a detrimental impact on whatever you consider success to be. Finding the motivation to work, to outwork anyone else, that is something that I think about every day, what is going to drive me to build the biggest thing I possibly can. The conversation around optimism and motivation get skewed by cynics who think it isn't practical, and while I understand their view they couldn't be more wrong. Lack of motivation cripples people and their potential every single day. Lack of motivation is what keeps people from challenging themselves. And lack of motivation is why some people never get started in the first place.

Johnetta Martin used to give to charity. Now she has had to ask The Salvation Army for help. She is one of many unemployed in Central Ohio, where jobs are scarce, and the situation doesn't seem to be improving, despite a slowdown in people applying for jobless benefits.
At a soup kitchen in St. Paul, Minn., Jeff Ansorge does more than dish out free food on Thanksgiving. With five-star service — and a pinch of parsley — his daily menu specialty is a meal with dignity — there are even "real plates," according to one client. Related: Disney, ABC and Feeding America team up to help the hungry for the holidays It's something Ansorge learned at culinary school as well as while working in one of the finest restaurants in Minneapolis. Ansorge had it all — an A list clientele, a staff of 17 and a near six-figure salary as executive chef at the Capital Grille — and then the 40-year-old walked away. Click HERE to donate to the effort and to learn more about volunteer opportunities at your local food bank. After 12 years at the Grille, he took a job in October 2012 at the Salvation Army Eastside Corps Community Center. "I wanted the high-paying job. I wanted the big house. I wanted the cars," he told The Associated Press. "And ultimately, none of that satisfied me. ... And now I have none of that." Despite the nearly 70 percent pay cut, Ansorge said he is now rich beyond measure as he preaches daily about generosity and service. In 2011, 64 million Americans volunteered their time, according to the Charity Navigator. At the Food Bank of New York City, for example, the number of people who have expressed interest in volunteering is up 20 percent this holiday season.

Wide shot of patriotic banners on scaffolding, push in to banner STORYLINE: In the heart of New York's Times Square, the US Armed Forces recruiting station is a busy hub of activity these days. Ever since the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, Americans have shown a marked interest in joining the armed forces. Not surprisingly, the wave of patriotism that has engulfed Americans is probably more pronounced in New York, especially in the heart of the city that was one of the chosen targets by the terrorists on 11 September. This recruiting station enlists members for all four services, the US Marines, Air Force, Army and Navy. And all that is required is that the enlistee be a legal resident of the United States, at least 18 years of age, have a high school diploma and of course a desire to serve their country. Staff Sergeant Matt Olivolo says the recent attack has spurred more interest in joining the armed forces. The possibility of America bracing for sustained land combat operations has some wondering if conscription into the Armed Force will once again be mandated, something the US hasn't experienced the Vietnam era. But Staff Sergeant Olivolo says it's an unlikely scenario. The terrorist attacks brought people together in grief, fear and anger - and honouring those who died is the basic reason why the military hopefuls were at Times Square on Tuesday.
