Motivational videos on YouTube are like trees to tree trimmers in Hawaii – there are tons! I remember back in 2010 when I was editing and mixing my own motivational mixes, there was a few good epic edits out there but today the Tube it’s saturated with them. I personally enjoy it though. I watch/listen to them every morning to help keep me on my feet and striving towards my goals.
The motivational trend has gotten so popular that entrepreneurs and companies are taking advantage of the genre and using it as a marketing strategy. Ha! That’s what I was seeking to do 6 years ago. I guess I was on the right track.
Anyway, I just wanted to share one of my favorite motivational videos that entrepreneur and businessman Gary Vaynerchuck had put together. It’s called “Overnight Success”. (See I told you the genre is catching on and being used as a marketing strategy). I like the video because it really resonated with me and I can relate to what he says on the video.
There is no such thing as overnight success. Well, it does happen but I call that luck, where someone wins the lotto or hits the jackpot. Majority of the people look at successful people and say things like, “Oh, you’re so lucky”, or… well you’ll hear it in the video.
Don’t ever think that success is easy. If it was, I or Gary wouldn’t be talking about success right now. Here’s the film:
Pretty cool vid. What do you think?
