How to be inspired
As I meander through the world on-line, I come across some videos and music that I think are truly wonderful. People can do fascinating things when they set their heart on it, and the only thing that sets us apart from each other, is how we think about our world, and where we fit into it – and how we interact with it, create something within it, and most importantly contribute to it.
This has been on my YouTube playlist for a long time – and even tonight, I showed it to my 11 year-old, Andy – and you could just see his eyes light up when he saw what people were doing in the video. I believe it shows people how to be inspired – how to achieve things you were always told “you can’t do that”. The people in this video, able and disabled, show what it takes to be human.
The video itself is what you call a mash-up. A visual and musical recipe that can sometimes fail dramatically – but can sometimes nail it. I think this nails it. What a great song, a great lyric, a great backing track, and a great visual for inspiring people to do what they tell themselves they think they can’t do – but nothing is impossible… collectively, this mash-up proves you can do whatever you set your mind to:
I’d love to have any comments on anything you’ve done similar (or as completely nuts) or other songs and mash-ups that inspire you.
All the best, Mark
