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...
Michael Premnath's insight:

This is a motivational video is about looking to the future instead of only the present or the past. It tells you not to look at all your flaws, mistakes and disadvantages and to keep going on to where you want to reach. This video tells us to use our special gift of "Imagination" and imagine what we want to see in the future and go towards it.

 

This video relates to us teenagers in a big way because we are still young and we need to look forward to our goals in life. You may feel like you have made many mistakes in the past, but we're only 13-14 years old and there is so much ahead of us and we need to look to the future and see what we want to be. We are only in our first year in high-school, but we must look ahead to do well in school, get a good job, have a nice family and live happily. We can't do this by looking at our present problems, or our past mistakes.

 

This is one of many videos I've watched that have changed how I look at life and the obstacles and situations we may face. This video helps me remember that we can't change the past, so why try?  Whatever I want to succeed in I have to see myself successfull in the future and try and reach and complete that dream/thought. I think the biggest thing that changed me was "See the change, you want to be" or "be the change you want to be".

This Simple unChristian Talk Could Blow Your Mind … And Make You a Better Christian

This Simple unChristian Talk Could Blow Your Mind … And Make You a Better Christian | Grade Nine Religion | Scoop.it
The bad news: life is often petty and frustrating. The good news: it’s an awesome gift. This talk by the late David Foster Wallace might just change the way you see the tiny, sometimes annoying, details of life.
Michael Premnath's insight:

This video is about how life may seem very annoying, frustrating or petty it may be, but we have to look through that. It talks about thinking about other people's lives other than just our own. You may have a bad day, but you will not know what happened the person behind you. So it reminds you that your day may be better than ther person you are in front of and to be thankful.

 

This video relates to everyone very closely because we all at one point had this mentality. There is one point or many where we just feel like everyone is just in our way of doing something. For instance, in this video the boy and girl are in a grocery store and are in line and everyone around them are a nuisance and are annoying, but you don't know how their life or day is. They may be buying food for their mother who is in the hospital, whereas you are just hungry and want to eat food. This is just one example of many that occur in our everyday lives.

 

This video made me realize that we shouldn't just think about our day. We must also take into consideration how the other peoples' days might've went. It made me learn that the world and life is not just about me and these people aren't just in my way. They may have the same opinion on me or they are in line and going to a very sick aunt. I think the biggest message is that "it isn't all about you.

Never Back Down - Motivation [HD]

Michael Premnath's insight:

Jake Tyler joined a fight club and trained with Djimon Hounsou. At first Jake wasn't as fit as he needed to be to compete in the club, but with several months of training with Djimon he got closer and closer to his goal. Djimon teaches Jake all the moves, strategies and requirements needed to compete. Eventually, Jake gets in good enough shape to practice fighting with his fellow students. In short, Jake starts from the beginning (Average) and goes through a journey to the end (Fit enough to fight).


I find this video really inspirational because no matter who you are, you always want to reach some type of goal. Whether it be playing soccer or doing well in school. This is a great video because it shows us that reward doesn't happen immediately, we have to earn it through effort, trial and error. We always have to push harder, and work hard to reach those goals. For instance, Jake started off average, but after several months he became fit and able to fight. Success and effort go hand in hand, in our everday lives.


After watching this video, my outlook on success is different. We always hear "You get out, what you put it in", but we don't really take in how true that saying is. If I want to be 10 times better at Soccer, then I need to put in 10 times more time in exercising and practicing.

This video helped me realize how much time and effort it takes to achieve something big, it's not like you can just try for a week and stop, you have to keep going until you're at your goal.

I strongly believe that hard work pays off. This video is living proof as Jake went through an incredible transformation from an average boy to an elite fighter. I totally agree with Michael’s insight on “you get out, what you put in”, as Jake wants to be an elite fighter and over the course of a few months of focus; hard work and dedication he achieves his goal. As teenagers this is very easy to relate to as we are faced, with the daily challenges of high school; including homework, assignments and exams. This video has given me some inspiration on which to found some strength to “Keep calm and carry on”.
Evan Wyatt's comment, November 10, 2013 8:32 PM
Never backing down is tough to do but hard work always pays off. I strongly agree with both Aaron and Michael's insights, this video shows us that we can rejuvenate our souls to become better if we motivate ourselves to do so. I like how Michael referenced soccer because I also play soccer and I can easily relate to this now. The saying practice like you play applies to everything, what you put in is what you put out. I understand this fundamental concept better now thanks to this video and both of your insights. Thanks for posting this motivational video.

A little boy uses optimistic thinking to become the greatest pitcher in the world. See this inspirational Pass it On commercial at Values.com.
Michael Premnath's insight:

There is a little boy and he is practicing baseball in the baseball park. He throws the ball up several times and misses, but he encourages himself and he keeps on trying. After the 3rd pitch, he missed, but he called himself "the best pitcher in the world" because he striked himself out 3 times.

 

Although this may be a short video, but it has a very important and simple message. You may not realize it at first, but this can relate to everyone. The whole message is to be Optimistic and look on the bright side of things. This isn't the only message, you may have not achieved the goal you wanted, you may of achieved something else or helped someone else achieve something. For example, in soccer you may want 20 goals this season, you may not reach this goal, but you may be the biggest assister in the league and your team-mate might of reached his goal. This video has one main message, but I think their are many other lessons we can learn from it.

 

This made me realize that you may of not reached your goal, but you might've benefited from the experience. For instance, I want a 90% on my science test, but I get a 82&. I didn't reach my goal, but I did learn that I should study longer or better. This video has changed my perspective on experiences in life, not everything is as it seems. Sometimes being postitive in negative situations can make the postive come out. If I want to do well in Science, I can't frown on bad marks, but look forward to doing well on the next one.

When This Autistic Football Player Kicks the Game-Winning Field Goal You’ll Be Cheering in Your Seat

When This Autistic Football Player Kicks the Game-Winning Field Goal You’ll Be Cheering in Your Seat | Grade Nine Religion | Scoop.it
This kid was never expected to play football due to his disorder. That's what makes the story of Anthony Starego so special. Watch him kick this game-winning field goal to give his New Jersey team a special win in this inspiring story.
Michael Premnath's insight:

There was a boy named "Anthony Starego" and he was an everyday boy, but he had a "disability" which was autism. Anthony loved to watch and play football. He especially loved "The Rutgers", his favourite game was when Ito (Football player) scored the winning field goal against Louisville. Anthony practiced kicking, this was very beneficial because this repetition helped his Autism. Eventually, he claimed a spot as a kicker on the Brick's Varsity Team. There was one game, exactly like Ito's game, it was one field goal away from winning the game. Anthony scores and scores a goal exactly like Ito's. just a little bit more special.

 

There comes a time in life where there is a goal you want to reach, but it may seem almost impossible and people may doubt you. There will always be this time in your life, but this video helps us realize, almost nothing is impossible. For instance, Anthony's dad at the end of the video said "We did the impossible!". If you just keep trying, pushing and keeping faithful, it can happen. As I said before people may doubt you, but if you're willing to give the effort and faith it is possible. You may of heard this before, but "Nothng is impossible!".

 

This helped give me motivation in my daily life and hopefully it did for you too. This video is a great motivator because if he can do, why can't we? The difference is that we don't give enough effort and we don't have the kind of burning passion he has. It also made me realize there may be obstacles in our path, for example in Anthony's case Autism, but we can pretend they aren't there and keep going to our goal.
