Here is a video I cam across of Antonio from the Real Men Real Style Youtube channel. He makes a nice heartwarming talk about his past failures and really gives you a down to earth perspective on his experiences. It’s beyond the “feel good” motivation videos out there – this is real talk.
It might be longer, but take a look.
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.
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.
