James Cameron TED Talk

I’m in the middle of a blog tour for Mind of the Beast. You can find more information about it at magicalunderworld.com. In the meantime I wanted to share some jewels I’ve found on YouTube or TED Talks.

Today’s nugget is James Cameron. Here’s a guy who started out reading science fiction and used making movies to fulfill his dreams of exploration. I don’t want to give away any more. As you watch these videos, keep this in mind, all these guys have one thing in common: they didn’t give up on a dream and went farther then anyone really thought they could.

Had a rough day? Let Alex Boye & Nic Vujicic inspire you.

Imagine being a teenage boy in the foster care system until you find yourself on the streets. It sounds pretty hopeless doesn’t it? Not for Alex Boye. Listen to his story and hear him sing. You will not be disappointed.

If that wasn’t inspirational enough, Nick Vujicic takes the mic. I can’t imagine what his parents must have gone though when he was born without arms or legs. Yes, you read that right; he was born without limbs. But after a pretty rough childhood, he has made a life for himself and made a difference in countless people’s lives.

We have been watching the Hour of Power since we moved out of Southern California. It’s been a great way to stay connected. Pastor Bobby Schuller is one of the most inspirational ministers I know.  He’s been a great pastor and friend to us for years.
