Your Life Is A Product Of Your Choices

This morning I saw a powerful post on my Facebook wall from one of my mentors.

It was one of those posts that was too powerful not to share.

The kind of post that gets under your skin a little bit, but you can’t get angry with the person saying it, because deep down you know that he’s speaking the truth.

The Greatest Speech Ever Made

I’ve seen this video a number of times.

And every time I see it, it resonates more with me.

Interestingly enough, the greatest speech ever made is delivered by a man known for his silent films.

The film this speech is delivered as part of is called The Great Dictator released back in 1940.

It’s a film written, directed and starring Charlie Chaplin, and was intended as a parody of Nazi Germany.

Reportedly, Chaplin confesses he never would have even made the film had he known about the atrocities being committed against the Jews at the time.

Best People Are Awesome Videos

It’s time to ring in the New Year, and what better way to do it than with a video compilation of some of the best People Are Awesome videos.

You’ve probably seen one or two of these videos floating around on Facebook or YouTube.

They’re the videos showing people doing crazy stunts and activities generally found in the extreme sports category.

People Are Awesome videos often show things like skydiving, BASE jumping, freestyle cycling, snowboarding and skiing, parkour and a whole range of other adventure type activities that most people don’t have the talent or the stomach for.

While I admire the athletecism and obvious dedication to the craft most of these activities require, I often cringe while I’m watching wondering about the failed attempts that didn’t make it to the video.

Here are a few of my favorite selections for People Are Awesome!
