What excuses are you using today that is limiting your potential?
Here are 5 videos that just kicked my ass.
Warning: Heart may swell. Eyes may get teary. The sudden desire to stop making excuses may occur. Ignore these videos at your own peril.
London 2012 Paralympics — Sports doesn’t care who you are. This video wrecked me. It makes me realize how pathetic my excuses are. When I’m in the gym, I run this video through my head. These athletes don’t make excuses — they just do it. That’s what I’m trying to master in my everyday life.
Nike Greatness commercial. Simple, but so true. Greatness is not in our DNA: it’s something that is earned, and attainable by anyone. Define your greatness, and go get it.
One of the best videos I’ve seen describing fear and how it plays a part in our lives.
The power of words. I wrote a short eBook on this, but I think this 1 minute 39 second video proves the point way better than I could ever have. Your words have an effect, more than you could imagine.
The interviewer asked, “How would you describe your disabilities?” This remarkable young man replied: “Not disabilities at all; more abilities.” Phenomenal video on a father & son relationship. The true definition of teamwork.
Are there any videos that move you? I spent about an hour or two watching videos of these types. There are so many people out there living up to their full potential and abandoning self-defeat. Look at what they accomplish. They seem invincible, yet they are human like you and I.
My blog is focused on adapting to a mindset that helps abandon self-defeat. This is an everyday struggle, I’m sure, not just for us but for the people in these videos. It’s a choice that they make every morning.
What choices will you make today that will assist in the abandonment of self-defeat?
