Why We Fall And How To Keep Going When We Do

When we think of fear, we often think of obviously-scary things: a fear of heights, a fear of getting hurt, a fear of failure. Have you ever thought you might be scared of success? Or of how much power you have?

Or maybe, you don’t even know how much power you have. Failing might be scary, and it might hurt, but you have the power to keep going. You have the power to keep practicing, to keep working, and to keep having that determined, strong will. Once you know this truth, and do not fear it, maybe obstacles won’t be so scary either?

This video is action packed with sports images and famous, inspirational voices. Watch this whenever you need a reminder that, despite anything, if you want something enough, you can have it.  Share this post with others to spread the power!

Recreating How We See Beauty

As we well know, the media tends to portray beauty according to some pretty narrow guidelines. But don’t we also know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder?

Meet Mama Cax, a radiant woman who has survived cancer and a right-leg amputation. She was told she had three weeks to live, but she didn’t just survive, she thrived. She started with self-acceptance and self-love and now inspires people around the world.

Check out this short video clip. Whatever outline her body could take, it would be hard to deny her beauty. You see, when you love yourself, it’s kind of contagious.

The Kindness Boomerang

So much can happen yet go unnoticed just on one street block. This video follows a trail of good deeds, incredibly all with one camera and in one take.

This is proof that everyone can do little things to make someone’s day better, and it doesn’t have to cost money. Just watch what the homeless man does. Everyone has so much to give, even if only a smile, that can go such a long way. This video shows the ripple effect kindness can have, and the idea that eventually it comes all the way back around. The givers become receivers and vice versa. It’s a beautiful balance.

It’s so easy to be kind–it actually feels great to give–and you have no idea how far your gesture will carry. So really why not be nice whenever possible? Watch and pass this video along. Who knows, maybe it’ll come back to you.

Do You Have The Courage To See The Real You?

We see others all the time and knowingly (or not) assign labels and stereotypes–what Kate Maree O’Brien calls “stories.” People see the story of who they think you are, without caring to look at who you really are. This video shows Kate’s face changing from one look to another as she demonstrates that, really, we can’t tell who she is just by looking at her. And just the same, we can’t tell who we are just by looking at and boxing ourselves in.

Do you have the courage to see yourself for who you really are? As good enough? Better than good enough? When you can truly see yourself, you will then be able to see who others really are too.

Watch this video and share with others for some motivation to get to know, and love, the real you!

A Simple Message That Will Make You Cry

We don’t usually have the perspective regret offers us until it’s too late. But we can learn from what so many others have said: be present and appreciate your loved ones. Although not always apparent, we all want to connect, love, and be loved, so making it a priority can help create a fulfilling, regret-free life.

Kate Maree O’Brien depicts herself first as an older woman with regret. Through movie magic, she fortunately has a second chance to be young again and do the things she’s always wanted to do: spend time with the kids and the family.

It sometimes feels like we will have so much time, so we tell ourselves that when we have more money or more free time, then we’ll do what we really want to. But the reality is we don’t know how much time we have. And unlike Kate in this video, we don’t have a do-over. But there is a way to ensure we don’t have regrets. Live now!

Is It Possible To Not Be Insecure About Our Bodies?

No two bodies are alike. We all are different sizes and shapes, and  we should value this; however, from a young age, we learn to reject ourselves, to cover up our “flaws,” and to sometimes even be disgusted with what we look like.

Kate Maree O’Brien asserts that this is not okay and not normal. She’s right. In reality, there is no right way to look. Flaws are subjective. For every type of body, there is a person who is attracted to it.

After almost dying from self-rejection and anorexia, Kate turned her self-image around. This video is proof of her newfound comfort in her natural body. Portrayed doing a nude photoshoot, she proclaims she’s proud of her rolls and stretch marks.

We all have insecurities. But we don’t have to. Click on this video and share the post to help create a world where we all can love our physical bodies just the way they are.

All Parents Should Read This Letter From A High School Principal

When kids pour their efforts and talents into schoolwork, yet still receive a less than perfect grade, it can feel like a part of themselves has been rejected–marked as not good enough. This feeling can sink in, take hold, and have long-lasting effects on self-confidence. Lower self-confidence leads to lower achievement, leading to negative consequences that just multiply and effect all of us.  

Because educational institutions, with their grade policies and standards, have been in place for so long, we sometimes accept the status quo without being aware of these ramifications. This video reveals a refreshing perspective we don’t often hear.

Watch as Jay shetty reads this letter to parents written by a principal in Singapore. The letter reminds parents that we all have different interests and strengths, and poor school grades won’t take away their children’s dreams. It reminds parents to react to all grades with love and without judgement.

Fail Like A Child

As little kids, we haven’t had the time or the brain power to intellectualize our world, to develop false ideas about our capabilities. In this video, Jay Shetty recreates a conversation he had with a new father. They observe the child and recall that all of us learned to walk by falling over and over again. But we always got back up and tried again. We didn’t even think about it or get discouraged and think “this is too hard.” We just got back up and, after a while, we all became expert walkers.

Just because we are older does not mean we have to impose limitations and feel irreversibly crushed when we fail. Tapping into our younger selves can help us readopt the mentality of blind persistence. Of course we are going to fail. It’s part of succeeding!

Check out this impactful conversation about failing like a child. Share this post to remind others that we’ve all been persistent since the beginning and don’t have to stop now.

A Lesson About Failure from a Child

We can learn so much from children. This is based on a real life conversation. Share this with a friend who is having a tough time! Thanks Jay Shetty

Before You Break Up, Watch This

When people fall in love and form a commitment, a two-way street of love and communication opens between them. The catch is that everyone receives and gives love differently. And when people’s styles differ, this two-way street can be more like two parallel one-way streets–never meeting, and always shrouded in mystery and frustration.

Take the couple in this video, for example. Each tries to show the other affection, yet each feels unattended to. Without communicating or understanding each other’s love languages, they will persistently feel like the other person isn’t interested (which really isn’t true!). All kinds of anxiety and resentment and wondering ensue.

Once he figures out that she just wants time and supportive words and once she learns that he just wants physical tokens of appreciation, they can finally express their love in a way that is received.

So before you jump to conclusions, communicate with and explore each other and you’ll hopefully find yourself on the same, blissful street.

The inspiration for the video comes from the book the 5 love languages.

Watch and share with other couples!
