Not every day is uplifting and fulfilling as we hope. Some days are mundane, while others just plain suck.
On days that are going down the drain, I try to grab on to something so as to not get pulled under. Today I found ran across 2 things that I found inspirational.
The first, I had seen earlier this year. It was an advertisement for Grasshopper. You might remember them for their stunt of mailing out chocolate covered grasshopper “snacks” to some well-known people in the blogosphere. The video really struck a chord in me. The combination of Sonja Jacob’s words and Carly Comando’s music made me feel all warm and fuzzy while causing me to blot the corners of my eyes.
I ran across the video again this afternoon while looking for something completely different and it had the exact same effect on me. It reminded me of how I first reached out to Sonja via Twitter, and how easily I became a fan of her writing.
The second inspiration clip had almost the same effect on me, but for a completely different reason. Like many of you I read Chris Brogan’s blog regularly, but I love his latest “Overnight Success” thread. In his first post about being an overnight success he attached a video showing his glamorous life:
I love the ending shot of the parking lot, it’s what really hit home for me.
So my question is: Where do you find your inspiration to keep going?
