This is something that happens a lot.
Many people want to find the easiest way to do things, the easiest way to achieve something. The cheapest solution.
They believe this wouldn’t cost them so much.
But many times, the easiest way costs way more than the harder way.
Let’s take for example people who want to be rich. The easiest way is to buy a lottery ticket and wait to win.
It’s so easy to do that, yet so ineffective.
And many people wait their whole lives away by wanting to take the “Easy route”.
When they could invest that same time, into something that they can control.
In this regard, the hard way is actually easier than the easy way.
Take a look at this next inspirational video.
An excerpt from Luc Besson’s movie Angel-A
This scene doesn’t need too many words.
Your friends and family might want to protect you. So they don’t want you to feel disappointment by making mistakes or failing at something.
Your enemies might not want you to succeed. So they don’t want you to have the possibility of succeeding at something.
But one thing I keep telling people is that ‘Everybody has the right to make their own mistakes in life’.
Someone might want to give you advice, someone might want you to not take risks, someone might not want to make the same mistakes they had… but in the end, this is your life, and you have your right to make mistakes.
Don’t fear making mistakes. Fear not learning from them. Fear being stuck.
And here are some suggestions from actress Salma Hayek.
Another inspirational video of success. This time about a guy wanting to desperately open his own gym.
Watch his story as he’s talking about the struggles he went through to open his gym and keep it.
Watch how he talks about the mental game – how he needed to defeat self doubt in order to succeed.
If self doubt would had succeeded, he would had failed.
Here is an inspirational video that will make you think “what the heck have I been doing with my life?”
Here is a 17 year old who owns a Ferrari. And not only that, but other cars as well. And not by getting them from his parents. No!
But by making his own money.
At an early age his family struggled. So he and his brother made a lemonade stand. He started learning the ins and outs of a business from an early age. Learning important life lessons from an early age.
Then he moved on to buying and selling items for a profit.
After that… well.. I’ll let you watch the video where he explains his story.
It’s important to take away from this video that he didn’t let his age stop him. While other people have become experts at making excuses for why they cannot succeed with minor things, this young man left all excuses to the side, and focused on getting things done.
