    This is an impressive collection of inspirational videos. Recently I have been really down… sometimes it seems like you get hit with everything all at once. That’s how last year was for me and it seems that this year is going to be even harder. These videos really help me put things in prospective and help re energize me.

    -I’m dealing with some heavy medical issues.

    -I’m waiting for some rather heavy test results that are potentially life altering (possibly life or death)

    -I’m looking a job to support my family.

    Please take a second and pray for me if you would.

    At first: I really like your collection even if it does not exactly match my preferences 🙂 I strongly prefer “intelligent procrastination” to motivate me, like provided by this guy: .

    By the way: The wimbledon snippet has been removed from YouTube so you might replace by another one or remove it as well.

    Kind regards,
