Today’s VIDEO VITAMIN is all about a straight-up dose of 1000% motivation to get you through any hard time! Seriously, follow this advice and your challenges will vanish.
This video can be put on repeat: let the words soak in so you can absorb their power. Les Brown is a world-renowned motivational speaker who overcame extreme personal hardship and established a hugely successful career.
I’ve been through some rough patches in my personal life (not too long ago!) and being able to tune in to these wise words was immensely helpful!
This is the POWER of video! How fortunate we are that all we need to do is click on the play button and we can connect with such sage advice.
Here are some highlights:
:35- “Don’t judge your circumstances and the possibilities for your future based on what you have now and because of what is going on now. No, no..that is not the real reality now. If you are going through some hard times it has not come to stay. It has come to pass!”
1:47- “You must have patience and engage in consistent action. Everything does not always happen when we want it to happen. It doesn’t happen quickly”
3:35- “We live in a world, ladies and gentlemen, where people want instant gratification…It’s simple, but it’s not easy. It’s a system that works if you work it. It’s hard. You are the determining factor. Here’s something else: it’s possible you can live your dreams”
10:11- “Not only must you have patience and engage in consistent action, you must turn to a power greater than yourself and say…’whatever I face today, you and I can handle it and I know some way and somehow you will make a way for me”
VIDEO PRODUCTION TIPS:
*This is a DIY (do-it-yourself) video. Notice how this video wasn’t created by Les Brown. An entrepreneur put photo images to Les’ speech with very simple editing and he has generated almost half a million views!
*Don’t overcomplicate your efforts by trying to create your own speech. Why not “ride on the shoulders of giants” and help spread their message? Find a short snippet that inspires you then find corresponding images. You definitely need to credit them in the description field and add their website.

Are you looking to improve your social media efforts? I have three quick tips to share with you! I recorded a short video for you to learn these awesome strategies. I learned these tips from the “Queen of Social Media”, Mari Smith, at the World’s Greatest Marketing Seminar in Los Angeles. She has over 1 million followers combined across all social media networks. She is amazing!
Watch the video below.
I spoke with Mari after her speech and shared how impressed I was with her presentation. I also thanked her for sharing videos during her presentation. I was delighted to see the “Queen of Social Media” sharing videos to really hone in her message and create emotional connection. I was blown away by this video created by Equalman Productions on the power of Social Media. I LOVE sharing great video content that helps you create a bigger impact, so go check it out!
I was also delighted when Mari said to me point-blank, “There are a ton of sophisticated technologies out there for communicating with audiences. People want to see real human emotions. Nothing out there beats real live video”.

Have you had a chance to see Deepak Chopra’s “Urban Yogis” video series yet? Did you know renowned techno DJ, Moby, discovered yoga nearly 25 years ago? He talks about his winding journey (and sometimes difficult) yoga practice on the latest episode of “Urban Yogis”.
Occasionally, I like to blast out great videos for you to view that offer life-enhancing advice + spiritual lessons. In this *very* revealing video, Moby also talks about:
- The health benefits of his own yoga practice
- Why yoga class competition literally hurt him
- What being on tour is like now that he has a regular yoga practice
A couple years ago, I was lucky enough to meet and interview Moby personally at Wanderlust Yoga & Music Festival in Lake Tahoe, CA. You can view a couple of the videos I shot:
>>>>>This video is of him performing on the Main Stage
>>>>>This video is of him speaking about his Vegan lifestyle
He was truly a humble guy. I was astonished that 1). He is so short in person! 2). He is actually very geeky. On stage he is like a God, but in person he’s pretty quiet and very down-to-earth.
Leave a comment below with your thoughts on these videos! What are some of the challenges of being an ‘urban yogi’? I’d LOVE to hear from you.
