07 apr The video that inspired me most in life
There are many videos that have inspired me, it goes without saying. I’m watching 1-5 Ted Talks a day and love to feed my brain with knowledge and insights inspired by great leaders. Great leaders that stands proudly for what they believe in and ready to share it with the world. Great leaders that communicates their purpose in life and delivers the feeling of why to the audience listening. A great leader, who was enormously skilled of delivering this message world-wide was Charlie Chaplin. Many would probably choose to introduce him as an great actor, director or comedian before using the word ”leader”, but you will understand why he is firstly a leader to me after you’ve watched the video below.
This short video needs some background info. It’s from the movie ”The Great Dictator” which is written, produced, directed and played by Sir Chaplin himself. It’s produced in the beginning of World War II (1940) and Charlie (here playing a ”interpretation” of Adolf Hitler) is giving the final speech to all his soldiers and the whole world listening. It’s powerful, honest and truly dared by Sir Chaplin to make this statement – regarding the situation in the world at this moment. Worth to mention is also the reminder that Sir Chaplin was famous of only making silent movies, until now when he truly decided to make his voice heard. He took responsibility for what he believed in and decided to let the world know.
Finally, I would like refer to the American author Mark Twain who said:
”The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
I remember watching this video for the first time three years ago – the second most important day of my life.
”We all want to help one and another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness – not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone.”
Strong regards with light and love,
