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.
This is something that many creators struggle with. Whether they’re classic creators doing art, paintings, drawings to modern creators who make video, write articles, making a photo album, writing a novel or even creating YouTube videos.
The same struggle is common to all: perfectionism.
Many don’t even start doing what they wish they want to do because they don’t feel prepared yet, they don’t think they can make it perfect.
And too many don’t finish what they started because it isn’t perfect enough.
Perfectionism is what keeps people back, it’s what makes people procrastinate, it’s what keep wonderful ideas… stuck inside someone’s mind… never to be brought forth into the world.
It’s important for a thing to be done well, yes, but it doesn’t need to be perfect. Because perfection is hardly achieved, it might not even exist. Perfection means not getting things done. And it’s better to get something done, than not having it ever done.
Anything worth doing, is worth doing badly… at first.
Here is an inspirational video which I originally found on Facebook, but I wanted to also find the YouTube version to share here.

Here is Youtuber Aaron Marino (Alpha M.) talking about his struggles in life before he started being a successful image consultant and Youtuber.
It’s always inspiring to hear how people get over their shortcoming, their failures and keep on trying until they succeed.
Many people might see a video about some celebrity and imagine that all their life was great, that they are lucky, that they never struggled, that they always knew what to do. But this ain’t so. Because behind every successful person there are probably years of struggle, years of taking action and making mistakes until that “over night” success appears. An overnight success requires 10 years.

Here Youtuber AdannaDavid is giving quite an inspirational talk about self esteem.
A lot of people value their self esteem too much based on other, external things, when self esteem is internal and should come from within.
Check out what Adanna has to say on the topic in this video:
