Every once in a while you see something that inspires you. Something that motivates you to keep doing what it is you do. This can be anything – a person, a story, a movie, etc. Myself, I get most of my inspiration and motivation from the stories of other people. People that have an interesting story to tell. People that try to make a difference. People that LIVE.
Some of these stories are captured on video in a great way, making these short videos inspirational and motivation in itself. I’d like to share a few videos that inspired me, and I would recommend watching them all. You probably already know some of them, but trust me: it can’t hurt to watch these videos again.
Note: I’ve written this post a few years back when I attempted to start Emarky.net initially.. Since I liked these videos a lot, I figured to re-publish this post.
I bet most of you know the story about Chris Gardner, a self-made successful stock broker. If not, I strongly suggest watching the movie The Pursuit Of Happyness. Here’s my favorite part of the movie:
“You want something? Get get it. Period.”
Into The Wild, definitely one of my favorite movies out there. It’s a true story about Christopher McCandless, a young guy that burned his money, thrashed his car and started doing what he really wanted to do: traveling. Truly inspirational, and he was 100 % right: If you want something in life, reach out and grab it.
“If you want something in life, reach out and grab it”
I recently came across this video. The voice-over is a motivational speech from Sean Walker.
You’ll understand why I put it here.
“How bad do you want it?”
Nick Vujicic, what a hero! the guy has no limbs, but you’ll be amazed what he’s capable of. Truly amazing…
Watch this video, and you’ll see with your own eyes that everything is possible.
“I love living life. I am happy.”
Not a movie about one particular person or story, but it still works very motivational for me (as an entrepreneur). It’s made by the guys behind GrassGopper.
“Entrepreneurs can change the world”
I’d recommend watching all 5 short videos. It’ll only take a few minutes of your time, and I promise it will be worth your while.
Let me know which one works best for you!
