Year End roundup with pinch of Inspiration December 31st, 2013

Vinod Kumar

I had a number of friends comment me over my previous post “Rejuvenate and feel better instantly” and one of the points was to view some inspirational posts. A comment from that post got me into writing this particular post as the year 2013 comes to an end. What are some of the inspirational videos that I look at and what inspires me? Well, there are a number of them to mention and another thousands that I would love to share. But here are my Top 5 as a teaser. Hope you get inspired by some and will plan for a wonderful year 2014 ahead.

Trust your instincts and Follow your heart – Steve Jobs

This speech by Steve Jobs at the Stanford in 2005 is short yet with a powerful message. Hats off.

The Last Lecture – Randy Pausch

I also have the book from Randy Pauch, “The Last Lecture”. This lecture of his at his University almost a year before he passed away is something I have watched a number of times. Take time and surely take a look. Worth every minute of your time.

It is not about falling, but failing to get up matters – Nick Vujicic

I am sure most of you would have seen this video before, but is worth a mention again here.

They might take our lives, but they can never take our freedom

Atleast I have seen this picture and this epic scene from Braveheart a hundred times when I was growing up. It was inspiring then and is even now :).

Greed is a poison – Charlie Chaplin

Did you ever know that Charlie Chaplin composed many of his film music? Behind the person who made us smile a million times is a serious person behind the mask who went through poverty and hardship to achieve what he did. I just loved this speech of his and thought it was worth sharing.

As the new year dawns, let me take this opportunity to thank you all for supporting me till date, encouraging me to write more, giving me candid feedbacks and loving me to what ever I threw at you as thoughts.

I will surely try to keep my writing pen active and busy in the coming year too. THANK YOU AGAIN ALL !!!
