Hi Darren,

 

Here's one of the ways that I start my morning by listening and watching Motivation videos on youtube:

 

Mindshift - Motivational Video - Viewed 5,614,911

 

There's a whole series of them listed on Youtube.

 

I listen to them while I'm posting ads. :ph34r:

 

Frankly, this give me an unfair advantage over most marketers. :P

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means
effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being
who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult
lives and led them well.”

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

"A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done."

 

--Vince Lombardi
