I’m not a surfer. I like the ocean and I like to swim. But surfing is something I watch. I’m amazed by a surfer’s athleticism. In the following, under one minute Vimeo video, two surfers give me a lesson on teamwork. We need each other if we are to make it through the tough times. They inspired me to always offer a hand and to accept one as well.

Our lives are made up of choices. We constantly choose between competing alternatives. Most of the times the choices are easy. Sometime the choices are difficult. We may ask ourselves if we should play it safe. Or, should we risk venturing into an unknown future trusting in an inner GPS to guide us. The following Vimeo video is about choices and I know you’ll enjoy Robert Frost reading his famous poem, “The Road Less Traveled.”
Have you ever been knocked down? Knocked flat on your back? There is only one option, get back up and get going. It’s hard, really hard. And, at times, seemingly impossible. When we get up off the mat, rise, and begin again, it is a personal triumph. The following short YouTube video tells one man’s story of getting up and going on. Get Inspired by his story.
Life isn’t easy. Some days it takes heaps of courage just to get out of bed. If you’re having a tough day, you’re not alone. Every person who has lived, is living, or will live has rough, really rough moments. The attitude we take to life’s rough moments can make all the difference in how we work our way through them. The right attitude will transform tragedy’s into triumphs. The following short YouTube video presents a short story using metaphors to illustrate the importance of cultivating the right attitude.
Do you think you are only one person? Do you often say, “What can I do?” “How can I make a difference?” All it takes is one person, with a courageous heart. One person who sees injustice, evil, or a person who needs healing and acts. It takes persistence and an indomitable spirit. Are you that person? Irena Sendler was that person. Watch the 2 minute YouTube video and you’ll discover what one ordinary person did that was by any measure extraordinary. I know she inspired me. I hope she will touch your heart.
I’m hoping you have a passion to use the awesome gift that is within you. Don’t know what it is? Make a decision, go for it. What do you have to lose? The following YouTube video contains the narration of a poem that was read on a Netflix Tony Robbins special. I found it inspiring. Let’s light the fire, fan the flames, and reach down deep to pull it off.
There is one true thing about change, the only person we can change is our self. Once we decide to change, we can ask, what is it I want to change? Change, if it will make you a better person. One who loves more deeply. One who is grounded in timeless values. One that brings out the best in you. Start with small incremental change. Don’t give up if you slip, you’re human. Have the guts to get up and start again. The following YouTube video will inspire you to change for the better. Let’s get going.
Setbacks happen. Failure happens. Each time they happen let’s say thank you for what we learned and for the courage we had not to give up. That’s right, say thank you for the lesson learned. We won’t repeat the same mistake, we’re stronger, tougher, smarter, and we won’t quit. We’re too tough, too ornery, too stubborn to quit. Get inspired to fight on with this brief YouTube video.
A small act of kindness, often makes a big difference in another’s life. It takes awareness on our part of the other person and their situation. It takes courage on our part to act. Our small act of kindness may not seem like much, but to someone struggling, frightened, not knowing what to do, it will make all the difference. The following video shows two acts of kindness, spontaneously give that made a big difference. I want to become more like the women in this short video. Enjoy.
Every once in a while, a hero knocks on my door. Today it happened when I searched for an inspiring video to post on this blog. No pity parties, no feeling sorry for himself, not this hero. He has a a tank full of courage. A heart bursting with gratitude, and an attitude I want to emulate. He was knocked down but not knocked out. He is an inspiration to all who watch the following Vimeo video. I know you will be inspired as much as me.
