How to use motivate in a sentence?

  1. Mattie Breaux:

  2. Shauna Martin:

    On Martin's quest to prevent recurrence, she started a diet of only raw vegan foods and green juices. I would go to the farmers’ market and just buy everything that I could find and see, and I would juice half, make salads with the other half, and it was amazing how quickly I rebounded from the toxins from all the chemotherapy. My hair grew back quickly, my skin started to really glow— and then the energy, I’d never had that much energy in my entire life. After years of juicing at home, Martin left her corporate job and launched Daily Greens, a national cold-pressed green juice company. I realized what I'm most passionate about in life is trying to make other people healthy, and for me that really starts with a green juice every day, Martin said. Martin continued her mission to motivate others, and published her recipes and personal health plan in her book, Daily Greens, 4-Day Cleanse.

  5. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    Listen up, you should help someone else financially in order for him or her to realize his or her dreams, visions or aspirations. Better still, do motivate or inspire someone else, so that he or she can dare to pursue and actualize his or her dreams, visions or aspirations. In other words, you should sponsor at least someone. Because, you can sponsor at least someone right here or out there, in order for him or her to realize his or her dreams, visions or aspirations. Note: helping someone else by any means to realize his or her dreams, visions or aspirations is indirectly and unknowingly helping your own self to realize yours. Thus, endeavour to do just that sooner or later. ~Emeasoba George.
