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.”
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.
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.

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.
