When you’re not sure if you can do something you put heart into, watch this video. It will kill all doubts!
Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t
Again, the time of the year that we think about our new year’s resolutions is approaching. But many of us are full of doubts; can I really do it? Watch the compilation below with awesome examples of amazing whole-hoggers and you’ll be motivated to the bone to realise your resolutions!
Their perseverance and dedication is admirable. Where most people would give up, they see each attempt as getting closer to where they want to be. They don’t let other people tell them they can’t do something; they proof those people wrong.
So whether your new year’s resolution is to quit smoking, drink less, work out more, admit that you are a Belieber, spend more time with your loved ones, learn something new, squander less money, eat healthier, do more voluntary work, or what ever… even if you failed to do so in the past 5 years… YOU CAN DO IT.
And when you lack motivation, hit REPLAY on the video above.
If you’re particularly motivated by any of these people, watch their individual stories below.
