Julia Strouk, founder of Motivational Project
Hello everyone, my name is Julia Strouk and I am the founder of Motivational Project. I was born and raised in Paris, France, and I currently live in Los Angeles, California. I am a 20-year-old senior college student at Pepperdine University majoring in Integrated Marketing Communications. I am super excited to announce that I will be pursuing a Master’s in Global Business with a concentration in Leadership and Organizational Change in January 2021 at Pepperdine Graziadio Business School.
My definition of Success:
Success to me means having found one’s purpose and fulfilling it. The day we realize what we are meant to do and why, is the very first day toward a successful life.
My goals & where I see myself in 5 years:
My ultimate goal is to be an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and author. Five years from now, I hope to have started my own business and written my very first book. I see myself giving motivational speeches at universities, conferences, and other special events with the ultimate purpose of inspiring and motivating others to believe in themselves and go after their dreams.
What motivates me:
What motivates me is knowing that everything is possible, knowing that we can achieve anything we set our mind to. I have a strong vision for what my life could be and what impact I could make in this world, and knowing that I can pursue this vision and achieve it motivates me to work harder and harder every single day.
Something that I do (a habit or daily practice) that I believe helps me achieve my goals and be productive:
Something that really helps me to achieve my goals and follow my dreams is finding a quiet time during the day when I can fully focus and reflect on myself and what I want to do in life. I believe that having some “me-time” is fundamental in order to listen to ourselves and figure out what direction we should take and why. Life isn’t just about accomplishing goals, it’s also about finding a purpose to what we do.
Honestly, any successful entrepreneurs and authors who are making a positive impact on people’s lives inspire me. Steve Jobs, Gretta Van Riel, and Haley Hoffman Smith, just to name a few.
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” - George Bernard Shaw
I deeply believe that we all have the power to create our own world, our own reality. It’s just a matter of allowing our mind to believe that too.
Something else I want to share:
A project I am currently working on is this one… I started the Motivational Project with the intention of building a community of like minded, self-driven individuals who also believe that they can achieve anything they set their minds to. I created this project hoping that it would inspire and motivate others to adopt this positive mindset and pursue their wildest dreams. I WANT US TO BELIEVE IN OURSELVES AND GO AFTER WHAT WE WANT IN LIFE. SO JOIN ME NOW!
