Demotivation

I read an awesome quote from Michelle on Facebook about failure, and it reminded me of a site that I haven’t looked at in years… Despair, Inc. They have many products now, but their main point is to create the opposite of the famous ‘motivational’ posters you see on the walls of almost every small business and/or doctor’s office. You know the ones… with the lush landscapes, or the setting sun, or the kitten hanging onto a rope for dear life. And they always say something like “It is the size of one’s will that determines success”, or “It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed”. You know, the ones that always make you groan, roll your eyes, and throw up in your mouth a little? Well, these posters are much more my style, and I wanted to show you the really good ones.

  3. Yes, these posters sometimes portray the opposite meaning of the typical motivation posters. But they prove the point anyway – thanks for sharing your findings !

    Very impressive pictures!.. All pictures says rules to follow to live life. They might get interpreted opposite to their meaning but they are worth for life. Any failure in life will give you one experience so even if you get bad results, you should perform well next time.. Nice thought for sharing!…
