Yes, I know times are tough for most. The conversations are dismal out there. People are giving up on their dreams. They are walking away from something they spent countless hours building. The unemployment line is getting longer and longer. No one really knows when things will get back to normal.
The politicians are telling us stories that are contradictory depending on what party they belong to. Some say the recession is over. Others say we still have a long way go. To me, they are using words to play on people’s emotions. That explains why I don’t watch television. I don’t want to worry about things I can’t control.
I created this video to inspire you to keep pressing on. The reality is, there are many people out there who are doing extremely well. I see crowded restaurants and malls often when I travel. I really don’t know that means. I just know some people are not struggling.
Now, I say this to let you know no matter how tough your current situation may be, there’s hope. Keep hanging in there. You may think you are struggling. But your definition of struggle may be completely wrong.
How about you are experiencing a breakdown for your breakthrough. Have you ever thought about it this way? Go ahead and start watching the video now to discover how to stop struggling.
Wonderful video! Thanks for sharing inspiring words! Many years ago one of my Christian mentors use the teaching of the caterpillar as an example of a new life in Christ! When we die to ourselves God’s glory is manifested in us as a beautiful butterfly that comes out of the cacoon! Your insight is very similar! So I was reminded of that lesson I learn long ago! Blessings upon blessings to you and yours! 🙂
You are welcome Maria! Keep pressing on!
Thanks you too!
Don’t leave us alone for too long, I missed your encouraging messages and inspirational histories, I’m an immigrant too, I love this country and I will not rest until I become a real asset to the people living here, just the way you are doing.
Thanks so much.
Wow! You’re so right Carlos. You are already a real asset to the people here. Keep pressing on!
I thank you very much for htis wake up e-mail, it means a lot to me. May God richly bless you and your family.
It’s my pleasure Sarah. I’m glad the video was a wake up call for you. Never, ever, give up.
I like your spirit, did you know that they have a motivational speech coming up at world congress center this month ?
Hi Denis. No, I’m not aware of a motivational speech at the world congress center this month. It must not be me speaking there, hugh?
So glad you’re back, and in a BIG way! This is a great video, and it came just when I needed it. I recently joined a large, national company, a leader in its field, in a sales position. I want to succeed mightily with this company, but in the first month I am really struggling, and the pressure from management is very intense. So, your video was very timely. Thanks for being right on time with your words of encouragement. Knowing you, your story and all that you endured to achieve success, how could I ever give up and quit? I will “press on”!

Hi Jim… That is so awesome! Do whatever it takes to succeed in that position. You are so smart and brilliant. Don’t let frustration stand in your way. Show up BIG everyday.
Keep asking yourself, “How can I get better at this?” Ask persistently and answers will begin to pop in your head like popcorns. I know you can. You’ve done it before.
Press on!!!! Go, go, go!
very inspiring you are always positive. will take
your advise and keep struggling thank you.
Good video. I like it. Iam also excited to start my class very soon.
Well Rene this one is more than just a video. I personally consider it as direct Hand in Hand assistance in keep our dedications to pursuing our dreams. Honestly before encountering this video I was kind of confuse and very tired of my situation and really tough on going back despite the fact that I also have the quest to become a motivational speaker but I must admit that this video give me the appetite to eat much more than I expected in recent days. Rene you have inspire me even a million times to keep pressing to reach my goal. Remember I promise to keep in my record and lay reference to you for inspiring me. this one is 100% excellence.
No more confusion for you Loseney. Your quest to become a motivational speaker is over. You’re already a motivational speaker. Now, it’s time to stand. It’s time to deliver. Start anywhere. Start with what you have. Just start. Your message needs to be heard. Write an article. Create a video. Record an audio. Put up a blog. Do something right now.
Rene, this is Loseney I’m quite sure you might try to remember me but just reference our previous conversations on this blog. I’m speaking now and currently in the United States. All I hope for right now is to meet or have some direct conversation with u either by phone or mail.
Hi Nerlie… Thanks for your comment. I’m glad you’re a in my inner circle. Let’s stay connected.
Thank you for this video Rene. It was very inspirational, and your success is thanks to one thing – an indomitable spirit.
You have that within you, and you’ve shared it with the world. Thanks for spreading your message, and for being a powerful reminder to people everywhere, at all stages of life, who need to hear a message like this!
We all need reminders. And it doesn’t matter what your level of success is. Glad you enjoyed the video Bill. Stay connected.
HELLO RENE, GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU. I ENJOYED THE VIDEO. I HAVE STARTED SPEAKING AT RECREATION CENTERS. NEXT YEAR I SPEAK AT A SCHOOL. YOUR VIDEO HAS INSPIRED ME TO CONTINUE TO PURSUE MY CALLING. THANKS, LYNN
Rusty, I know you are more than capable of making a significant difference in the world. You have what it takes. I tell you what… If you can run a marathon, you can do anything, man. I have done a few half marathons. I have yet to muster the courage to do a full one. Kudos to you.
Get ready to uplift and inspire those children in a very powerful way Rusty. Stay committed and focused! Press on!
hi i’m glad to hear from you, thank you for the video. it feels like you can sense that i’m going through a rough patch, but hey!i have decided to be a caterpillar. thank you so much Rene.
Awesome Rose! You have the internal fortitude to overcome whatever is pressing you down. As the Bible says, “Greater is he that is inside of you than he that is in the world.” Keep pressing on! Victory is yours!
Rene, i really want to say a big thank you for your encouragemnt.you are absolutely right.Before now i use to be worried about every little thing especially in my love life when the man is giving me attitude and hurting my emotions.
But i have come to realise now not to worry about things that i can’t control
Thank you for your advice.
Good for you Tombara! Change is an inside out job. The moment you change your view, you change your world. That is so beautiful! It’s amazing how we have the answers if we can take the time to question ourselves and think. Proud of you Tombara.
Ahhhhhh, Rene, this is so fantastic! Its a lifter, it changes one’s life forever. May the good Lord keep on providing you with perfectly inspirational and uplifting words of wisdom.
Motlatsi, thanks for chiming in. I’m really happy so many of you find this video uplifting. It means a lot to me. It’s my deep desire to continue making a mark in the world. Together, we can do it. I urge to inspire someone today. Just say something nice.
What will I do to look and act just like you?
You don’t have to do anything to look and act like me. Just look and act like you. That’s all it takes. Work daily on being the best you. Improve in the areas that are critical to your success.
You are unique in your own way. Showing up as me would do you no justice. It’s great to model success but not a person.
Since you can never be someone else because of your unique DNA, keep this in mind: The best you is far better than a lousy somebody else.
Papa u are wonder+ful=wonderful, in short i do not no how to express my joy when i hear back frm u mentor of a true i really miss you 4 some time so i am very happy now u are back. in short d clip is a BOMB a just finish downing it now. so my mentor advice me now the way i give ithink is get out of hand because some time i can not even save any thing at the end of the month so master i need ur word…..
