Watch This When You Are Feeling Really Down

There are certain videos that really can lift you up and give you hope, no matter from what problem you are suffering.

The problems we have always seem so big, so unsolvable. What can help us here is a change of perspective: Your problem is perhaps someone else’s dream.

“There is always someone else who is suffering more than you do”, people used to tell me. I’ve never understood that.

How can someone else’s problems give me comfort?

Truth is: they can’t.

What GIVES us comfort is how people courageously endured and overcame their problems that are so bigger than our own.

This is what gives us hope, this is what makes us look at OUR problems differently.

The following video is a perfect example.

Randy Pausch reprized his famous “Last Lecture” in the Oprah Show.

I’m sorry to say that Randy Pausch died yesterday.

Please take a few minutes and watch this video. You won’t regret it.

Here are a few inspirational sayings and quotes from this video you SHOULD remember and internalize:

“Life is about achieving childhood dreams”

“I don’t choose to be an object of pity”

“Experience is what you get, when you don’t get what you want”

“Brick walls are there for a reason: they let us prove how badly we want things”

“Never underestimate the importance of having fun”

“My parents taught me about the importance of people vs. things”

“Decide if you’re Tigger or Eeyore”

“Live with integrity”

“A good apology has three parts: 1. I’m sorry! 2. It was my fault! 3. How do I make it right?”

“Wait long enough and people WILL show you their good side. Be patient”

“Show gratitude”

“Don’t complain; just work harder”

“If you live your life the right way, the Karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you”

If you are interested in watching the complete “Last Lecture”, here it is:

Thank you Randy, your courage and positive view on the world will continue to inspire and help people throughout the planet.

You will be remembered.

    Eddie- Thanks for posting this. I saw this awhile back on tv and was so impressed by his courage and approach to his final days. What a true inspiration. Thanks also for the quotes. The one I especially liked is “Brick walls are there for a reason: they let us prove how badly we want things.” I have never looked at my brick walls this way before. A change in perspective is always good.
