This is what people who are trying to change their lives need. Not patronizing platitudes. Not simplistic advice loaded with assumptions. The footage of the beginning of his journey, the shots of him falling down and getting back up, are the key to this video. The shots of him running and doing headstands at the end, while wonderful and inspirational to be sure, pale in comparison - people getting extraordinary results in any kind of endeavor is constantly the stuff of news stories and movies. No, the real power here is seeing someone in an awful situation gut out the steep part of the difficulty curve, the part where starting seems impossible and continuing seems twice as impossible, and get from "awful" to "bearable" - at which point the curve, while still perhaps daunting, no longer provokes existential terror. Overcoming the initial despair and uncertainty is the hardest part.
