Each morning, after getting my little boy ready for school — and before doing anything else — I take a little time to learn about some amazing things that people before me accomplished in their lives. Often this inspiring education comes in the form of a historical video documentary about a person or group of people. (By the way, I use the Roku box to stream NetFlix directly to my TV…so easy!) Sometimes I listen to podcasts, and other times I simply read — but my favorites are always the documentary films since we usually get to see and hear these great individuals talking about their experiences; their hopes and dreams; their tribulations and how they overcame them; and finally, what they learned from it all.
And the inspiration that comes from learning about these brave and daring people isn’t the only benefit: my “problems” are often trivialized when compared to the hardships that others before me endured. This empowers me to tackle my day and encourages me to face my obstacles head on.
I encourage you to try it!
