Life Vest Inside - Kindness Boomerang - "One Day"

Watch as the camera tracks an act of kindness as its passed from one individual to the next and manages to boomerang back to the person who set it into motio...
Siobhan Bruce's insight:

This short video was about the ‘ripple effect’ of small acts of kindness. You got to see at the start a construction worker helping a boy who fell off his skate board. This inspired the boy to help an elder woman carry her groceries bags across the street and then that elder lady gave a younger lady some change for the parking meter and so on. It shows that little acts of kindness can go a long way and inspire people to pay it forward.

 

I saw this video in grade 8 with my old school and I thought it was a good thing to show. I try to be positive and try not to be mean to others and I am constantly trying to help others out when they need it. This video showed me how being kind to others can be inspiring to the receiver to carry on the deeds. For example, I go out of my way to help my friends with the notes they have missed when they weren’t in class, also I help them understand work to the best of my ability when they don’t understand it.

 

There are many people who are self centered and only like to make sure they are doing well and their family is doing well. The thought of helping others, doesn’t generally come to their minds first, but I think this video shows that helping others results in a sense of pride in what you have done. Once they start helping people and feel the sense of accomplishment that comes from what they have done, they will be more willing to do it proactively in the future. The video is a positive reminder of what the outcome of helping other people can be – sense of satisfaction.

This video has inspired me to be kinder to others on a daily basis. It is a perfect exemplar of how one random act of kindness can do wonders by inspiring others to “share the love “by acting kindly to those around them; regardless of who they are or where they come from.

i agree with siobhan. This video has inspired me to start helping people out more often because as you saw in this video it has an impact on them which can help somebody else.

Can you watch without crying? :'(

Can you watch without crying? :'( Its hard to not feel this, so make as he says in this video, Go and tell your parents that you love them, This could happen...
Siobhan Bruce's insight:

This is a very touching short video about a man who had to choose between two choices, after his mother had a cardiac arrest. The choices were to revive her, which would probably break every bone in her body, or let life take its course, and let her die in peace. After only having a minute or so to think about which choice to make he decided to let her pass in peace. After making his decision he went beside her bed and starting crying and thanking his mother about how she raised him, but the sad thing was, this was the first time he had told her how much he actually loved her. He never told his mom anything until that moment. He kissed her and said goodbye, and he waited in the waiting room until it was over. He was saying, that still to this day, she is in the back of his mind while he is doing everything, because his mom taught him basic but powerful life lessons.

 ie- how to love, be kind etc.

 

This video defiantly brought some tears to my eyes. The reality aspect of it is it can happen to anyone. One day your loved one is fine and the next, their lives, lie in your hands. A similar experience happened in my family, where my mother had to make the choice to either let her mom live in pain or "pull the plug," so to speak. Of course, she chose to let her pass peacefully. Thinking about my own behavior towards my parents, I don’t really tell how much I appreciate everything they do for me. I do thank them for dinner, new clothes ect., but never the Beatitudes or how to treat people.  This video has changed the way I look at my parents.

 

I absolutely think this video is beneficial to youth today. Taking people for granted is one of the themes in this video. As a whole, we take our parents for granted a lot.  Thinking that they will always be there tomorrow is a common thought in many of our minds so we tend to brush off spending time with them. Simple and fun things to do such as watching a movie with our parents we turn down because we would rather be alone or with friends. We never really realize how much someone means to us and helps to make our lives a little easier until we are praying for the pain to go away, so they can come home, just like the man in the video was doing. The sad thing is, sometimes there is no tomorrow, we really need to tell them how much they mean to us every day or at least along the way, so they know they are doing a great job and also after they pass we aren’t left with the words "I wish I did..." or "I wish I said...".

This video really touched me because it seems now a days were so caught up in social media and the world we don't stop to appreciate the people around you. And when we finally realize its too late . We all love the people around us and they know u love then but we forget to verbally say it often . This video is a perfect example of that he loved his mom and his mom knew he lover her but he never verbally told her how much he loved her . Life is short and people can be taken from you at anytime . This video really touched me and i actually did cry it made me this about life more deeply.
CarrieAnn Reveredo's comment, November 10, 2013 5:43 PM
I can relate to this video so much as I never tell my parents how much they mean to me. Michael makes a great point when he said that it's our mothers (and fathers) who teach us the most in life. We should tell our parents how much we love them, but like Kayla said, we're at the age where we just don't. One thing I like that Siobhan mentioned was that we just automatically assume that our parents will be here tomorrow, and the day after, and so on. But we take them for granted as they can't live forever and one day we may have to make the same decision the man had to make. We shouldn't have to wish that we had said or did more when that time finally arrives, we should know that we lived a lifetime with them to the fullest.
Vincenzo Pissokas's comment, November 10, 2013 9:38 PM
This video has really made me realize that our parents are here to help us and they won't be forever so it is very important to savior it before it is too late because if you don't then you will regret it for the rest of your life. I am also like the man in the video because I don't tell my parents how thankful I am and how much I need them in my life. I will try very hard to make sure that they know how much I love them and I think that the man made the right decision when deciding whether or not to keep her alive or lest her rest in peace.

Lead Without a Title - Robin Sharma - Heal Your Life

Lead Without a Title - Robin Sharma - Heal Your Life | Grade Nine Religion | Scoop.it
9 smart moves to win in business and life.
Siobhan Bruce's insight:

 In this article, 'Lead Without a Title' you learn several different strategies to become successful in business and life by being a leader. This article gives you insight that major companies have fallen because of the lack of diversity in their leadership skills. 'Lead Without a Title' also provides 9 simple techniques to help you improve and learn what a strong and successful leader needs to acquire. "Remember that you need no title to be a leader, Shift from victimhood to leadership, Put people first and Remember tough times build stronger leaders" are only 4 out of the 9 useful skills you learn. It doesn't matter what position you start out as but if you choose to do your best each and every day that is what counts, this one of the main themes in 'Lead Without a Title.'

 

I found this article very useful. Reading it taught me that being a leader is about more than running a business. in this small world we are all trying to be the best that we can be but some do it the wrong way, where’s a few do it the right way, by helping others along the way and treating them with respect.

 

 With the more social sites and people competing to be the best in their job, the meaning of being a leader is lost. Most people forget about God's Golden Rule: "Do on to others as they do on to you," they will do anything to get 'followers' or 'stomp' on other people to make their way to the top and once they are there, they command respect. 'Lead Without a Title' gives you 9 smart moves to become the best you can be but doing it the right way. By accepting our weakness and limitations we can all become strong leaders.

LOOK AT YOURSELF AFTER WATCHING THIS.mp4

Siobhan Bruce's insight:

In this video, the Nick Vjuicic was born with no arms or legs, but sort of a like a "chicken drumstick" as he calls it, or just a short not developed leg. He talks to youth and adults about his story, to be thankful for what you have. He did mention that there were times in his life that he doubted his abilities and focused more on what he couldn't do, than what he could do. He does a great job with integrating current issues, like eating disorders to get his point across – be thankful.  He is able to inspire many people with his stories. He doesnt let having no limbs limit him to his happiness and pleasures.

 

"You keep on concentrating on the things you wish you had, and things you wish you didn’t have, and you sort of forget the things you do have." This statement he said, I really agreed with. I'll admit there have been times where I have secretly wished for what someone else had. For example one Christmas Eve, when I was about 4 or 5 my younger cousin got a pretty large (now way too small) life like unicorn. I was extremely jealous that I didn’t have one, and I wanted it really badly. My mind was focused on that unicorn that I kind of overlooked and judged the gifts I got. I am still trying to work on being thankful for what I have and wanting what I have, though I know it will be a lengthy process.

 

This inspirational video is extraordinary. Many of us always wish we had someone else's body type, objects, friends etc., which we forget the value of the things we do have. The first key principal that he talks about is being thankful, even though it is very hard to not want someone else has, or even harder to want what we already have, we need to try. The second one is to be patient that is also hard as well, to be able to wait for the right time for things to fall into place.  This man loves life, his life, and here some of us are not happy with our lives right now because we don’t have the newest I Phone or we have to do homework, etc. This video can teach us to be happy and cherish what we already have.

Unstoppable - Motivational Video

Check out The world's top fitness portal: https://www.facebook.com/FitnessMotivationDietTraining If you like my videos Feel free to send Donations on my Chan...
Siobhan Bruce's insight:

This short motivational film "Unstoppable" is literally about getting into a mindset where accomplishing your dreams can be unstoppable. The video shows many little clips of athletes performing and working hard, also it provides inspirational quotes/sayings that validate working hard leads to success, which it the main point of the film.

 

 "When all you want to do is give up, when all you want to do is give in, but you stay in and you give it all you got. You got to take one more step; you got to run one more lap, you got to throw one more punch until you reach the top." That was one saying in "Unstoppable" that I really agreed with. When I grow up I want to become some sort of doctor, but I know it is a lot work and my journey ahead is going to be hard and somewhat stressful. If I take these words in to account, when I feel like I cannot go anymore; this should give me the extra amount of strength I need to reach the top.

 

This shot film can defiantly relate to any person at any age. We all have dreams that we want to accomplish that take dedication, but there is always that one point when we tell ourselves we can't do it and we should just forget about it. Or we might get discouraged that along the way we fail. Everyone falls but it is the strong ones that are able to get up and move on stronger than before who succeed.

Today, most teenagers and kids want everything no matter the cost. We get everything so easy, that most of us expect the world to be a happy place where everyone is happy, but that's not true, only the strong determined ones are successful in the end.

 

"Unstoppable" shows you that hard work pays off when your heart, soul and mind are in it.

This video is very motivational showing how we're unstoppable, with the willpower and faith we can achieve anything. This video helped me reassure the concept of achieving your dreams, with society and everything thrown your way we begin to doubt or forget this concept. This motivational video renewed this concept to me and changed my way of thinking. I now think better than I have before with the determination and faith I need to strive in my daily endeavors. Thank you for posting this wonderful video.
