Extreme Homeless Man Makeover!

I always wanted to make random homeless man day...and today I decided to do extreme homeless man makeover :) Follow my fan page: https://www.facebook.com/Vit...
Aaron Alexander's insight:

In this video, the famous you tuber Vitaly, makes a random homeless man’s day. Vitaly and his friend find a homeless man standing on a street corner and then invite him into their car for a total makeover. They then proceed to Wal-Mart where they purchase the man NEW shirts, jeans, a belt, boxers, shoes and a new backpack. They then check him into a motel for 2 nights. Finally they take him out to get a haircut and after that they take him to a fancy steakhouse for dinner. They end the video by leaving him in the motel room and wishing him good luck.                                                                                                                                                     I choose to scoop this video as I thought it could serve as a reminder that there are still many great people out in the world. Often all we hear on any of the news stations is news about people killing each other or countries going to war against each other; and, I thought it would be nice to show a video of somebody displaying a random act of kindness to a total stranger for a change.  This video can serve as inspiration for us as Christian’s to start to show a little more of Christ’s love in our everyday lives.                                                                                         I believe that it is important that my fellow classmates watch this video, especially as Christians, as we are to shine our “Christian light” to guide non-believers. I believe that this video can serve as an inspiration for us Christian’s to put our best foot forward to lead a Christ-like life; especially considering that the person who was showing GOD’s was a non-believer who didn’t even realize it . If a non-believer can show that much kindness, then us Christian’s who have knowingly been filled with God’s unfailing love should be acting in an even kinder way on a daily basis.

If you like my videos Feel free to send Donations on my Channel: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&business=a_miroslaw%40interia%2epl&lc=G...
Aaron Alexander's insight:

In this video Les Brown, Will Smith and Eric Thomas articulate on what it takes to be successful. With some motivational music to back them the main message that they are trying to portray throughout the duration of the video is the following. They confirm that on the road to success, you will encounter many hardships, problems and failures; you’re going to encounter many times when people will backstab you people will neglect you people are going to turn away from you; you’re going to encounter times when no one will believe in you. Those are the times when you are going to have to believe in yourself and stand string looking towards your goal Knowing that as you’ve set your mind to it in accordance to GOD’s will that you will accomplish it.                                                                                                                                    I choose to scoop this particular article as I thought it could serve as inspiration. We all have goals that we would like to achieve; especially at this time in our lives as we are in high school. We want to achieve honor roll status, we want to make a school team, we want to graduate high school, and we want to go to university. What we often fail to realize is that all of these things take a lot of hard work and dedication to see to fulfillment.  I believe that this video can serve as a means of great inspiration for my fellow classmates.                                                      I believe that this video would be great for my fellow classmates to view as it   could serve as means of inspiration for them to face the daily challenges of not only high school but also life, with great courage.

AMAZING INSPIRATIONAL CHRISTIAN VIDEO!!! - HD

What are you living for? Yourself or the Lord?
Aaron Alexander's insight:

In this video they talk about the defining moments in people’s lives. Throughout the course of the video they show the life/defining moments of a man on his deathbed. Starting with his baby memories all the way up to what we infer as him receiving news from a doctor indicating that he has a serious illness that results in him being on his death bed in the present. While he makes some poor decisions along the way i.e. drugs and alcohol getting arrested etc., he eventually finds his way to the Christian community does what we can infer as change his life around. 
As teenagers I believe that we can relate to this video quite well as for many of the struggles and/or opportunities for poor judgement, high school is the time when many of these things are first presented to us, many kids are presented with these “challenges" earlier than high school age. Friends will try to pressure us into doing some of these wrongs things. I think this video can serve as a means of inspiration for teenage youth to steer away from such things as followers of Christ as we should always be trying our best to follow what Jesus would do. 
The first time I watched this video the first thing I did was relate it back to my own life. Even though I am still relatively young and the grand scale of things you are never too young to start to devote your life to GOD. The quote at the end of the video saying let GOD define your life get me motivated to start seriously living for GOD and I think that other teenagers should be able to relate to that as well after watching the video. That is why I chose to scoop this video.

Defining moments in our lives are moments we make that last and they're good memories. I agree fully with Aaron's insight and I feel Aaron covered everything I would've covered. I like how Aaron stated that even though he's young it's never too young to devote your life to God and I think many people don't realize yet how faith and growth are so important. God should define our lives and work with and through our abilities and talents to prosper and make our defining moments. I like how Aaron mentioned poor judgement and I think we can relate judgement to our faith life, if we are truly committed to our spiritual life then we wouldn't have really bad judgement. I think that this is a very inspirational video that stresses the importance of God, personal and spiritual growth. I strongly agree with Aaron's insight and I find this a wonderful and inspirational video.

Great video Aaron. I agree with your insight. I love how he turned to God no matter how deep he was into life. This video has taught me that it can never be too late for God to accept you into his kingdom.

From Struggle Comes Success -- Inspirational Video

From baggage handler to successful CEO in only 5 years, Josef Azam talks about the key to success. By sharing his motivational story, Josef proves that ordin...
Aaron Alexander's insight:

In this video the story of Jozef Azam is discovered. Jozef grew up with a poor family in a wealthy community; he says this is something that motivated him, as he saw that others had so much while he had so little and he wanted to have some of the things they had, so he worked for it. He had 3 jobs to pay for his university tuition, while most people around him had their tuition paid for by their parents. Through many sleepless nights and failures he graduated university and is now the CEO of a multimillion dollar design company.                                                           I choose to scoop this video as I thought it could serve as a means of inspiration for my fellow peers. I felt this video could be inspirational as Jozef Azam is a living example of someone who went through Hardships and struggles in his life only using it as motivation to be a better person, and he has used that motivation to become as successful as he now is. We often hear about success stories or about how we can achieve success; but, I found this video unique as it included the actual person who was successful talking about how he achieved success and about what it takes for us as humans to achieve success.                                                                           I feel that this would be a great video for my fellow classmates to view as            it serves as a living example of someone who has achieved success. I believe that this could serve as great inspiration for          those currently “stuck in a rut” when it comes to their success “road”. This could give them the courage and perseverance to overcome the obstacle that has been placed in front of them and to keep strong going towards their ultimate goal of success.

How Bad Do You Want It? (Success) HD

"When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you'll be successful" You can download the mp3 version of this speech for your iPods/iPhones he...
Aaron Alexander's insight:

In this video the hip hop preacher A.K.A. Eric Thomas talks about a man who wants to be successful. This man wants to be successful/make a lot of money, so he talks to this guru who tells him to meet him tomorrow at the beach @ 4am. Thinking that the guru is crazy, but respecting his ability to make money the man shows up at the beach the next day at 4am.When he arrives at the beach the guru tells him to walk out into the water and he does. Then the guru tells him to go deeper and deeper into the water until he is neck deep. The guru then joins the man out in the water and puts his head under the water, until the man is about to pass out and then takes his head out of the water. He then said “When you want to be successful as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful”. He goes on to talk about 50 cent and Beyoncé, and some of the sacrifices that they make to be successful. (All this time, Giavanni Ruffin, a running back for East Carolina University, is shown working out).                                        I choose to scoop this video, because I thought that every individual in our class could learn something from it. Although everyone strives toward success, few achieve it as many of us lack the will power and dedication that it takes to be successful. This video explains to us that we all have the capability to achieve success; but, it is also stating that in the process there will be many things that will be required of us to give up/sacrifice to achieve success. I believe that this video can serve as motivation for us to base our ventures towards success at.                                      I believe that it is important for my fellow class mates to view this video as it can serve as a wakeup call. We all strive towards success blindly; not taking into account the sacrifice that is required to achieve great success. This video can remind us that success requires hard work and dedication; but also that accomplishing success has great rewards.

I can relate to this, well i think we can all relate to this. There are times when we need to finish our work but we are tired. We are sleepy and all we want to do is lay down in bed and sleep. But you know cant sleep because you have to sleep cause you have a test the next day. You are already not going to well that subject. So what do you do? DO you sleep or do you continue to study cause you want that good grade that you and your parents want? It all depends on how much you want that good grade! You gotta push yourself!
Michael Premnath's comment, November 4, 2013 7:06 PM
I think we can all relate to this because in our life there is always something you want to excel and succeed in. Whether it be Soccer, Hockey, school or video games. There is one thing in common in reaching those goals and that is that you have to have a passion, a goal and you have to push yourself to the furthest possible. For instance if you want to well on your next Science test, you have to make time for it and study until you know it 100%. In short, in order to succeed, you have to reach your limits and if you're trying your best, try even harder.
