There are many days in a founder’s life where he/she are searching for inspiration to feed the fire within them. I too, experience such moments, days and even weeks. In such times, I find inspiration in books on founders like Capitan Gopinath, Richard Branson, Ted Turner, Warren Buffet and many others. These true stories remind of successful entrepreneurs remind me that the success is a journey, not a destination.
Then there are days like today when my body is aching, my mind is numb, and I am in dire need of that double shot motivation expresso. It is on days like these that I turn to the following 3 videos to keep me motivated.
I remember this video being a huge eye-opener when I watched it back in 2008. It was the first time I realized that the world was shifting right under my nose and the only way to stay ahead of it and not get left behind was to continue to evolve.
Although today some of the facts may seem dated, this video continues to be an active reminder that those that didn’t evolve don’t exist.
The margin between defeat and victory can be very small but the preparation for that minute (read: small) difference starts months, years and even decades before the victory moment itself. The difference starts by doing those small things today that others don’t so that you can do those things tomorrow that others can’t.
While there are changes taking place every minute of every day there are some days when the flux gets to me. On those days this video acts as a reminder that to thrive I must adapt and to adapt I must be formless and to be formless I must let go of my ego.
The intensity with which Bruce Lee delivered these lines continues to give me goosebumps to this very day.
