This is one of the funniest motivational videos that I've seen; it's similar to real life as a sales leader!
Each sales person knows what this feels like. It seems that some days just have more challenges and calamity than others. This short spot for insurance company De Amersfoortse really depicts that well.
A man leaves his peaceful middle class neighborhood early in the morning. One of his neighbors is in the front yard, and waves with "Hi John" from his riding mower. John waives back, "Hi Bob!". A couple across the street, in their tongue in cheek 'perfect' home and lifestyle, wave "Hi John". As John gets in his car, a meteor falls from heaven and the man and woman scream! We see John climb out of the hole next to the crater, "I'm OK", he says, as though this is just another challenge for the beginning of his day.
As John drives off to work, we see a meteor following behind, with sound fx intimating that he's been hit; we see the neighbor react with horror. John yells, "I'm OK".
Next, he's standing in front of the closed door of the bank. He opens the door, with a total optimism on his face, and sees a light approaching. It's a train that comes rushing towards him. The people on the street react with total disbelief and scream! We see John on the windshield of the train, with his cheek mashed against the glass, and he says, "I'm OK".
At the end of the day, he's at a community pool making his way to the end of a diving board. He's a bit overweight; a gal on the side of the pool is expecting a big splash. John dives in and a large whale jumps up out of the pool and takes John into it's gaping mouth. The woman screams is dismay. John is suddenly pulling himself up to the pool edge, his eye glasses obviously fogged up, and he says, 'I'm OK".
John is casually walking down the street in front of a cafe', drinking from a cup, and a piano falls on him from overhead. We hear from under the piano, "I'm OK!"
John is then driving his car with the window open, and a raven flies in and begins attacking his face. Obviously distracted, John cannot see what's ahead, and his car skids into a gaping hole in the road, disappearing with a smoke explosion. Then the text, "Entrepreneurs keep going when others stop".
This is classic. It's the 2013 version of "The Strangest Secret" by Earl Nightingale; "successful people are willing to do the things that unsuccessful people are unwilling to do."
