This is a longer inspirational video on the topic of business, about 20 minutes, but really worth it.
Here is Art Williams’s famous speech – do it.
Check it out.
This video talks about “buying the right lies”.
It illustrates how some people look at successful people and compare themselves with who those successful people became, not who they were.
That’s not a good comparison. You cannot compare the start of a race with the end of the race, not that it would be a race.
But if you look at many successful people, many were probably in a far worse situation when they started, than many people.
Not being like “them” after they’ve “made it” is a bad comparison and it only creates excuses.
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.
