Dolphin Tale, true story about Winter

Just saw the movie, “Dolphin Tale.” The true story about a dolphin named Winter who was rescued from Mosquito Lagoon near Cape Canaveral, FL. Unfortunately, her entire tail had to be removed from the damage she had received from a crab line. Most dolphins unfortunately die from that type of traumatic incident. But not Winter. She survived the rehabilitation despite the odds against her. Winter’s energy and ability to adapt to her new physical form has surpassed the expectations of many experts. Her story is one that can inspire us all. If you’re down, now is the time get moving. You can’t let the odds against you, stop your movement. The past is the past. Focus on the present and the future. Believe in your own abilities and nothing can stop you accomplish your goals.

Be Great, Powerful Beyond Measure

Fantastic inspirational video. How great can you be? Every night you dream of being the best. Every morning you wake thinking you’re the best. But along the way you start to doubt yourself. You starting thinking, “can I do this?” Yes you can! Go after your dreams, believe in yourself. Today is the day that you’ll be great. What you do today determines tomorrow. Dare to be great. Set SMART goals for yourself and achieve them.  Nothing in this life is out of your reach.  Stop being afraid of success.  Challenge yourself everyday.  Sure you’ll make mistakes but that’s the only way you’re going to learn.  Today is your day.

“This is the beginning of a new day.  You have been given this day to use as you will.  You can waste it or use it for good.  What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.  When tomorrow comes this day will be gone forever; in it’s place is something that you have left behind…let it be something good.”

Being the best athlete you can be

I found this pretty inspiring video on being the best.  It got me thinking.  What does it take to be the best?  And not just the best athlete but the best at business, the best husband or wife, the best dad or mom.  It takes effort but not just once in a while effort.  In order to be the best you have to get up everyday and put this constant effort day in and day out.  But what does that mean?  You have to focus on the little things.  If you get up every morning and decide to do 100 pushups before work or school then that little effort over time will make you stronger.  If you get up and run 3-4 miles every morning then that little effort over time will make you more fit.  If you get get up and shoot baskets every morning then that little effort over time will make you a better a basketball player.  It’s doing the little things that matter the most and over time those little things will make you stronger, fitter and better than you’ve ever been.  Set a goal to wake up every morning and do one thing to put in the effort and see what happens.  Give it 12 weeks and I promise you it will make a difference.  Run 4 miles, do 500 pushups, shoot 100 free throws, swing your golf club a thousand times, read up on your sport and be the best athlete, spouse, person you can be.  Enjoy this video!

Short Motivational Movie

This is a pretty cool video on overcoming adversity.  It’s definitely worth the watch.  We were born so we could dream and accomplish all that we desire.  Dreams are not suppose to be easy.  If they were then they would not be dreams but we can make them a reality with hard work and passion.  With every success there is adversity but how you handle that adversity is what makes that the success worthwile. 

Live your dreams, take on adversity, and reap the rewards.  When was the last time you had a dream?  Did you pursue it?  Why not?  The time for excuses are over.  Live everyday like it’s your last. 

At the end of your life, wouldn’t it be nice to know that you lived every moment to the fullest.  That you took calculated risks.  That you made mistakes but you learned from them.  A mistake is not a mistake until you stop trying.  Go live your dreams!
