How Hard Are You Willing to Work to Achieve Your Goals?

My son is visually impaired, and so I often cringe when people say things like, "The blind leading the blind," or "Are you just blind?" I don't get offended. I know people don't mean anything bad (usually) by using these clich├ęs, but I still just cringe, because people who say these things don't usually have any experience with being blind or having any sort of visual impairment, and as a result, their comparisons and comments are often poorly based.

With that said, here's a motivational video. I think it is more motivating if you do NOT listen to the spoken words (because the narrator uses a lot of "if you were blind" analogies). If you mute it and watch the video and ask yourself, "What am I willing to do to achieve my goals? How hard am I willing to work?" ... you may just be inspired.

But wait!

Then I found this video. If you REALLY want to be inspired to work harder to achieve your goals ... watch AND listen to this one. Simply awesome.

Which video did you like better?


  1. This needed to be said, thanks. I liked them both.

  2. I liked both of the videos. Thanks for sharing them.

  3. Hi Margo! Nice to meet you today! I have seen the second video before, so I'll vote for the first one :)

    What a wonderful question you pose for today. What am I willing to do for my goals? Its hard work! I just finished writing a blog post about just that subject, wanting to avoid the work involved in change. Yuck. But that is what makes it so worth it.

    We all have to inspire each other, right? Thank you for your inspiration today. I am so happy to have stopped by today.
    Happy Sunday!
