And the same for other interventions and processes.

To truly endure, we must invest in ourselves. Repair the damage, strengthen our foundations, and build resilience. Only then can we shine brightly, standing out as something truly valuable.”

— Martin Rothery

CHESTERFIELD, UNITED KINGDOM, February 15, 2024 / — Martin Rothery, creator of Sanomentology gives his view on the rise of motivational speakers and other interventions.

Imagine an old classic car. It’s been through a lot of wear and tear, with gouges, dents, scratches, and rust. A person decides to restore it to its former glory.

At first, they think a simple coat of paint will suffice. But they choose a cheap paint, and although it looks good initially, it starts peeling after a few weeks. The underlying damage becomes more apparent—the dents, gouges, and rust—and the car’s overall appearance worsens. Even its performance remains subpar. What was once a valuable vehicle now seems almost worthless.

To truly rejuvenate the car, it takes a different approach. It must be meticulously prepared: stripping away old layers, filling in damaged areas, removing rust, and perhaps even welding. Then, a high-quality primer mist be applied before building up durable layers of paint. Finally, a thorough polish brings out its shine.

And voilà! The car is transformed. It not only looks great but also runs smoothly, standing out among the crowd.

This can draw parallels to a person’s life. Just like that car, people face various challenges—life’s metaphorical axe inflicts damage. Sometimes the wounds are minor; other times, they run deep.

Motivational speeches and inspiration act like that initial cheap paint job—they ignite a spark within us, lifting our spirits and revealing glimpses of our potential greatness. But like the fading paint, their effects are temporary. And a person can be left feeling worse than before, because they felt that awakening and it left them.

General therapy can help, but it is generally just like painting over the rust, or sticking masking tape over the damage. At best it will fix a small area properly, which then makes the unfixed areas stand out more. So someone can feel good for a while, before reverting back to the old ways, and feeling like something is missing.

To truly endure, that person must invest in themselves. Repair the damage, strengthen the foundations, and build resilience. Only then can they shine brightly, standing out as something truly valuable.

Martin created Sanomentology to help people become life’s equivalent of a master craftsman in classic car restoration. He says “A person will firstly be able to restore themselves to their full glory, and then if they choose, will be able to help others to do the same.”

“And when you can do that, the feeling is incomparable to anything else. It awakens the soul faster and better than a bucket of ice water will awaken a lazy teenager. And it stays awake. It grows. It thrives for more. And the good feelings grow with it.”
