I love things that inspire me. Art, music, talks, videos, whatever it may be. Sometimes I look at these things right away, most times I put them in my Watch Later playlist on YouTube or add them to my reading list in Pocket. I was scrolling through my Google+ account and came across a post by a friend, Towsyn, on a site she blogs with called AfroScopes. Anyway, what matters is that I decided to watch this certain video in her post that I figured would be inspirational right away, and I’m glad I did.
The video is a TEDx Talk by a Nigerian man named Cobhams Asuquo. He is a music producer and a gospel artist. He is also blind. I don’t want to go through his short talk here, that’s what the video is for. But he makes 3 points that I believe can and should be applied by everyone.
- Do not excuse failures.
- Learn to trust, even when you have no reason to.
- Be blind to be focused.
It’s not a very long video, please to give it a watch. I found it to be quite inspirational and witty, and I’m sure many people will as well.
