Video: Rise, The Motivational Message

When life hits us, we can either run from it or take it as it is, learn from it and let it make us grow stronger and better than before. ~ Vishant

This motivational message is my story and is based on true events. The video is made by Sander Coumou and directed by Rafael Chan.

I was being pushed around and judged, felt lost, blamed others for things I couldn’t do, had very negative thoughts about my physical appearance which in my head was a constant barrier to not participate in anything sports-related. Until one day, it dawned upon me what I was doing to myself. I realized that I am the sculptor of my own future and goals and that dreaming only would not get me anywhere. I bring to you: Discovering the powers of my Mind: How I went from Scrawny to Superman.
