    Dum Spiro: If at first you don't succeed... Motivational Videos

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again with Dum Spiro in an imaginary animated kingdom where he won't give up!Animation is such a wonderful craft for demonstrating truths in life that are often humorous!  In this entertaining motivational video by ESMA (in French: Ecole Superieure Des Metiers Artistiques, translated Higher School of Artistic Crafts), Producer Boris Cailly and team do a superb job of illustrating the axiom, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!"

    With the help of sub-titles, runner 'Dumb Spiro' receives an assignment from Caesar: take a missive to his opponent that will change the course of the battle! The young clumbsy runner  accepts the assignment and embarks into the forest, only to be stopped by a large momma  bear who has a love for festidiousness and a weakness for flowers.

    Runner Spiro tries time and again to get past this foreboding bear, using trickery, timing during the bears nap, as well as a rocket launcher (this is animation); he finally succeeds when he gives the bear what she wants...flowers!  But, as with the best layed plans, there's a hitch as the Runner Spiro passes through the bears territory, which ensues in an amazing high speed chase!

    Runner Spiro finally succeeds with great effort and arrives at the doors of the opponent to deliver the missive! The opponent reads it, responds in a letter back to Caesar, and then demands that Runner Spiro return with the new missive to Caesar, requiring that runner Spiro make the trek back through the forested bear territory.

    I can't help but think of the days when I knew about a qualified prospect on the other side of the 'forest' needed my service, and everything seemed to get in my way!  It took tremendous perseverance and grit to get my message through to my prospect; yet the result was always worth it.
