4 Powerful Truths YOU Should Know

I know you’re reading this and I want you to know this video is for you.  Others will be confused.  They will think it’s for them.  But it’s not.

This one is for YOU…

The 4 Truths (video transcript):

Reminder:  We just released the Audio Book for 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.  And we also have a limited time bundle of our eBook, audio book and bonus material on sale for a big discount.  Click here to check it out!

1.  You have many reasons to smile.

I want you to know that life is not always easy.  Every day can be an unpredictable challenge.  Some days it can be difficult just to get out of bed in the morning, to face reality and put on that smile.  But I want you to know that your smile has kept Angel and I going on more days than I can count.  Never forget that, even when times get tough, as they sometimes will, you are incredible, you really are.

So please smile more often.  You have so many reasons to.  Time and time again, our reason is you.

2.  We are all in this together.

You won’t always be perfect and neither will we.  Because nobody is perfect, and nobody deserves to be perfect.  Everybody has issues.  Nobody has it easy.  You will never know exactly what we’re going through, and we will never know exactly what you’re going through.  We are all fighting our own personal war.

But we are fighting through it simultaneously, together.

3.  You are amazing just the way you are.

If someone discredits you and tells you that you can’t do something, keep in mind that they are speaking from within the boundaries of their own limitations.  In this crazy world that’s trying to make you like everyone else, find the courage to keep being your awesome self.  And when they laugh at you for being different, go ahead and laugh back at them for being the same.

4.  Life isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty darn good.

Remember, our courage doesn’t always roar aloud.  Sometimes it’s the quiet voice at the end of the day whispering, “I will try again tomorrow.”  So stand strong.  Things turn out best for people who make the best out of the way things turn out.

And we are committed to making the best of it along with you.

The floor is yours…

1.  So what did you think of the video?  Is this something Marc and I should do more often?  Perhaps a monthly video blog…

2.  What are you struggling with right now that you would like us to cover in future videos or articles?

Please leave a comment below and let us know.

  • You guys are incredible. Keep on doing what you do… please. You were made for this.

  • Every time I check your blog, I find inspiration.

    This post is another great example of that. Thanks :D

  • I love the video blog concept! Short, sweet and inspiring. Definitely record some more of them.

    Also, I’d love it if you’d cover the process of letting go of negative relationships and past events in an upcoming video blog. And perhaps a little insight into your story - with life, the site, etc.

  • Love it - thank you! Keep it coming.

  • I personally loved the change! It’s refreshing and it’s awesome to see you guys animated. Monthly (or even bi-weekly) would be great to see. :)

  • I like short videos. Any thing less than 2 minutes duration. It forces you to craft your message creatively and succinctly. From the readers’ / viewers’ perspective, one can skim-over a written content quickly to get a gist, and then decide to lunge in to read in detail.

  • I love your posts . They help me in maintaining my perspective especially in midst of utter chaos & confusion.

    Thank you.

  • You guys brighten up my days.

  • I’m fairly new here. My friend referred me to your blog and I’ve had a great time reading your insights. I would like to see you cover family relationships because that’s what I’m struggling with right now.

  • And about the video… I think a monthly one would be great. It helps when you can actually see the people who have such a positive influence in your life. It’s like a sense of security - “they’re real and they’re there to help me.” Monthly videos would be nice. =)

  • Love it!

  • It was a sweet video. Just the two of you. No agendas or selling or what have you. Just what you are offering. For me, it was authentic and it humanizes a blog when the writers speak to an audience. I don’t see this every day and I feel that its earnestness is the best part of this. To do this week in and week out would become ad tedium, but like unsuspected rises and falls in unpatterned routine, it is a delightful break.

    It is the reason I think I like this blog over sooo many, that is intent and integrity are in the right place for me. You and James Altucher have my audience and then, sometimes, Tim Ferris and Seth and Leo Babauta.
    Thank you.

  • Hi Marc and Angel,

    Loved the video. I recently suffered inner ear viral induced vertigo, which has dramatically impacted what I am capable of doing at the moment. I am still sorting out my feelings about that and wrote about it today (linked above).

    I really enjoy your blog and use it for personal inspiration to both accept myself today and to be be the best I am capable of, today.



  • Uniquely inspiring, an added dimension; an extension of your selves to your community out here. Beautiful, thank you.

    Yet the read-only blogs afford more broad expression and greater detail which I would not trade away.

    Caleb, great job! Artful beginning with Angel’s laugh.

    My current struggle: Inadequacy.

  • You’re so cute together, Marc and Angel.

  • Thank you for taking the trouble to write and record this; your inspiration keeps me sane.

  • Great post and video. You definitely have to shoot more videos as that is a powerful way to influence others. You look great! Keep going!

  • I start my days with your site :) and I couldn’t think of a better way to start this first week of June! Thank you (from Poland).

  • I loved the video, really well made and provides good variety. A monthly video blog sounds like an amazing idea!

    I would be very grateful for some advice on feeling more of a sense of self-worth as this is causing much anxiety at the moment. Often it feels like others are better than me and when things go wrong it’s my fault. I guess this would link in with views on perfection too.

    Time and time again, my reason to smile is YOU. Thank you so much to both of you for such a great, inspirational website.

  • You guys are awesome.

    I can’t tell you what it means to be able to come back regularly to this site and see new inspiration. I can’t always take it on as much as I would like, but it gives me great solace. Every single time.

    I know you’re not perfect (as you yourselves state), but you seem happy and very grounded. It gives me hope to see that people like you exist.

    Thank you.

  • Marc and Angel ! Good work, please keep it up. You two are wonderful.
    From Nigeria.

  • I love the video! I can feel that you are so genuine (and so incredibly inspiring)! Please let us have more! :)

  • Great effort Marc and Angel. Post more videos :P

  • Well hello Marc and Angel, love the video and you are so right in that we have the power to choose how we see the world around us.

    Despite finally coming out on the other side of a divorce and having to deal with all the chaos that this creates and still needs to be dealt with, I know things will improve if I take it one step at a time.

    There is so much in our lives to smile about that allowing the negative to dominate our thoughts and appearance is a great route to a wasted life.

  • You guys are so great!
    {I am a deeply committed cynic ;) and even still your video made me smile…Where are people like you in my daily life!? Thanks!}

  • You make me smile often! Thank you!

  • Thanks for the video. Really enjoyed it. I needed to hear those words. It really lifted me up. I was feeling so down. Thanks again.

  • Video works once you give us some content to absorb. If you have a theme it’ll draw people. Make sure the theme always has a written script below, like you posted here.

    I think this is a really good way to communicate for you two.

  • Thank you so much for creating this site. It’s been very inspiring and motivating.

    - from Malaysia

  • Oh wow, what a great new idea! When I saw there was a video with today’s post I almost didn’t watch it (a little resistance, for some reason) and I just ploughed straight into the text/transcript. But after reading that I thought well ok, I’ll click and see what they (my favourite bloggers!) have done. And I was bowled over by what I found - so direct, so intimate, and such refreshing approach. I’ve read you guys for about 12 months now, I’ve bought your ebook and have even emailed with you - but it was wonderful and very powerful to see the two of you in the flesh, speaking such positive truths. As others have posted here, more please!! (er, with transcript too for printing out [I always keep a file copy!] and for those occasional days I really can’t click…) x

    Loved it - I start my day off reading your blog - the things you share make me feel better about my life everyday! I realize I’m not alone and my life has meaning. Thank you.

  • I think you both are great but really; this is only for you? =)
    Keep doing what you do — it’s great and I appreciate you trying new things like this video.

    Some topics to consider that would be helpful:
    Transitions —
    Changing relationships with children –
    Dealing with world events –

    Hope those are topics that might ring true for you.
    Thank you for all you do.

  • What a wonderful treat on this rainy stormy Monday morning. I was already wearing my smile but it became even wider as I watched this video. It’s wonderful to put faces to your names. You both truly rock!

  • Great job! It’s nice to see the faces behind the written content you have shared on your blog - and a BIG thank you for not trying to sell something during the video. It makes you real AND authentic inspiration. Thanks!

    It would be nice to cover as much as possible about:

    - The brain/behavior spectrum.
    - Positive outlooks on bad times. Much needed.
    - How to be realistically successful but please also for us older people (we need it more in to days world than most; but then again I don’t know your audience’s age range.)
    - Things to avoid, and what not to say in all circumstances.

    Then just keep on with it as it is, you guys are doing a fantastic job for us all

  • Wow l love the video. You guys are the best. Keep them coming.

  • Wow after reading your webpage for so long it was nice to see the faces saying those words so often read on this site. It was cool catching a small glimpse of the two people behind my dose of inspiration everyday. Thank you.

  • Nice video and nice faces :)

  • This vid was really sweet guys… I must say, I’m a new fan and I love your work. I always share whatever inspiration I get from reading your posts with my friends on Facebook and with my personal friends I see every day. You guys are doing an awesome job… keep it up !! :)

  • Super dooper!! Loved it! Fresh, crisp, intimate and honest are the words that came into my mind as I was watching. Also enjoyed the creativity of addressing the viewer so directly. Hats off to you both and your thoughtful, inspiring approach to helping others.

  • I liked the ‘this is for you’ part. I thought it powerful.

    I have only read the transcript. I like words. But now I will look at the video after reading these reviews.

    I love your work.

  • Good Morning!
    A sheer delight, the two of you are. The video clip of the two of you is a lovely reminder of what great friends, and lovers look like…very sweet. I often post to my FB page your insights, and you have encouraged countless others in my world and surroundings.

    I send this as a heartfelt encouragement to you two, to keep up the keeping up of what your hearts are telling you to do. You do it so well.
    Blessings and favors be yours,
    Ann Marie

  • Love this! It was really so refreshing. Made me smile! :-)

  • The video was a great compliment to the article. The message relayed resonates further with auditory and visual context. I too would like to see a clip on both your journey and how you’ve gotten to where you both are. Thanks for the inspiring blogs, the daily reminders of what it is to be alive and feel connected. I’ve gone through some of my own tumultous wars against self; and no matter how down I am; your daily blog always points out that little voice in my head that sees rays of hope within my own journey that sometimes gets veiled with the drama of life! Once again; thank you!

  • Thank you for your words of wisdom that I can relate to put into practice as well as fall back on. Like another comment said, I like how you do not sell me something; I just want to relate to some positives thoughts when there is so much negative out there.

    The video was was very well done, nice to see real folks doing the right thing and spreading positivity.

  • Thank you for this!

  • Loved the video - nice to put faces with your names. You guys are an adorable couple. You always inspire me.

  • You two are a part of my daily routine of getting up early before the rest of the world does and make coffee and read your website and being inspired. I have to do this, and you speak such truth.

    I am so happy I found this website and will be purchasing the book. I follow you on Facebook also. Great job guys!

  • I thought this was great! I always pictured who was behind all these great words of encouragement and inspiration. It makes a difference when you actually hear someone say it. I check this site a few times a week and especially when I’m going through tough times. It really lifts me up. I also share it with my friends. They always enjoy the words of wisdom. Thank you so much for all of this! I look forward to seeing more of these.

  • Very nice. Always great advice and inspiration. I share what you share often.

  • I like the video, but in general I prefer written posts, so I suggest you do them occasionally. It is nice to see “the real you.” I also like the content of the post. You acknowledge that we all face problems, while encouraging us to be positive and proactive.

  • I thought it was great, it was nice to put a face to a name. Keep up the good work.

  • I’ve enjoyed reading you for some months now, and I thank you for the inspiration and support you provide! Although it was nice to see you both on the video, I do prefer the more-indepth posts. Thanks again…

  • I have been connected to you through your site for awhile and I am so grateful or the things you share. I pass on your inspirations and advice to others, as personally find them SO BENEFICIAL, particularly on ‘down-days’ HAHA !

    Yes, I loved the video, as I also wanted to see your faces & now hey-ho, thank you! I can look into your eyes and your soul… LOVE & HUGS Sue XXX

  • I liked your video. I enjoy reading the posts also. You have helped me with this long grief I have gone thru since my husband has gone on to heaven. Enjoy each day with each other-they are more than precious.

  • It’s so nice to see you both! This video creates a really personalized delivery and helps your followers to connect with you. Love it!
    I’d love to hear about positive ways to find direction in life when you just can’t seem to get clarity on what your passion is. To pursue a dream you need to know what it is that your heart desires before you can take steps to make it happen. It would be great to hear any suggestions on ways to help unlock creativity and gain clarity.
    Thank you for all of your inspiration and energy! :-)

  • I love your message, it inspires and comforts me every time I read it, or them. I keep all the emails and refer to them when I need a boost.

    Having said that, I don’t think I’ll watch the videos. It actually feels MORE personal when I just READ them. Sincerity is hard to convey when you speak to a camera, and I prefer to hear the voice speaking your words more subjectively, less manufactured for a wide audience, more…..privately.

    Makes sense to keep posting them for those that like them. But for those like me, we can just choose not to watch, but to read.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Absolutely loved this post and video!!! Your wisdom/words arriving in my in box every morning have been a source of endless inspiration to me. I share so much of what you write with friends and family because your insight is timeless and valuable to many across divides of race, gender and age. I am in awe that two young people such as yourselves are so in tuned with what the world needs to hear…it has taken me 57 years to gather but a fraction of the wisdom you both share!

  • A monthly video would be great. Some topics to cover are:

    1. Freedom from competition.
    2. How to stop comparing yourself to others.
    3. How to forgive others (and yourself), for real.
    4. How to break the co-dependency habit.
    5. Knowing when it’s time to move on from (fill in the blank). Could be a job, relationship, activity, etc.

    Have a great Monday!

  • I really enjoy reading your posts. Personally I prefer to read articles. I can do it at my own pace and it is quiet. I have shared many of your posts on Facebook. They are truly inspirational and remind us of what is important.

  • Love the video log!

    I’m always reading and watching… keep up the great work!

  • You must continue to share and inspire. This is a wonderful step along your journey and it will serve well - you will reach others who will benefit by your generosity. I loved hearing your voices. It’s like a great greeting from a friend who cares about my world. Thank you my friends!

  • GREAT! Finally get to put faces to names. I incorporate your common sense, wisdom and positive approach to life each and every day! You’ve enriched my life (and probably those around me too), so many thanks. I would love to see monthly videos; please keep up the good work!

  • I keep saying how I’d love to have you two come to live with me for a while so I can soak up some of your positivity and wisdom. This video made me feel like I was enjoying my morning coffee with you in my home… glad to visit with you, keep the videos coming please. And thank you for articulating so clearly what I often need to hear… I am enough, I am worthwhile, I serve an important purpose, I am loved and worthy of being loved.

    Blessings to you both! Thanks for the “visit”… need a refill on that coffee? ;)

  • I’m new to your stuff, but believe I have found it at just the right time. I liked the video approach - its nice to see who you guys are, but I’m glad you gave us a transcript too. I’m kinda struggling concentrating right now so having both really helped. I guess my main issue right now is self loathing. Thank you so much for doing this.

  • I have been following you for a while, and enjoy your posts regularly. I have also already purchased your book which was great as well.

    Although I am not a video watcher normally (I read fast, and have much to read, so prefer that) it was great to connect with you on a different level. I now feel that I “know” you a bit.
    Blessings to you both and thanks for inspiring us to keep going and doing what needs to be done!

  • The video is great. It adds a totally new dimension to the message, which is also great by the way… keep them coming. You are making a difference in my life and the lives of many others.

  • Oh thank you this! It was and is exactly what I needed to hear right now xx :))

  • Your articles are great. They gracefully cover every area of positive, productive living…

  • Awesome! Thank you, yet again :)

  • It’s nice to put faces to the words.
    Yes, a monthly video would be great.
    You’re going to be BIG!

    Thanks, Angel and Marc.
    I wouldn’t change a thing… keep doing what you are doing… because you always seem to hit the nail directly on the head… even when I don’t totally agree with you, there is always a “truth” I can take from what you share and more often than not, they are the truths I need when I need them. I look forward to your emails. Thank for your service and yes… ministry.

  • I love your messages… I do prefer the written word rather than the video, but it’s nice to meet you though.

  • I believe it would be great if you could add the closed captions/subtitles for people with hearing loss in your videos. I am Deaf myself and I love your blog.

    It would be great to make your videos more inclusive for everyone else. Just a thought.

  • Love the video! You guys always have such a great message, its nice to see the visual! Keep up the great work… I wouldn’t say do it all the time, but once a month a video would be a great treat!

  • This is great, you guys! I loved seeing you both “live!”

    Keep up the amazing work.

  • You are naturals-it didn’t even seem rehearsed- you have a gift for reaching people. Continue your videos and you’ll be able to help even more individuals. Wow!

  • Thank you…for the new vid and the daily inspirations, that always motivate me to think and better myself. Have an awesome day :)

  • Enjoyed the video. Your site is one of my favorites! Keep up the great job.

  • WOW! It’s so nice to hear your voices and see you in living person. You just keep getting better every day. Thank you for being there for all of us out here. Lots of love. P.S. I’m smiling big right now!

  • Love it, love it…love it!!

    This is great, it was such a treat to see both of you together and you are so sincere, just like your posts. It made me want to do a cartwheel :)

    Your site has done such wonders for who I am as not only a person, but as a mother. My son is now an avid fan too and he can so relate.

    Keep up the great work and your blessings will continue to flow!

  • I love your message and the video is well-done. If you are doing the video for me, personally, I don’t usually watch videos on my computer because…well, I don’t. I love reading your messages! Please keep on bringing your gift to the world! (Text is good enough for me!)

  • It is great to see the creators of the blog… a monthly video would be awesome. I am awkward with any relationship due to past abuse, so any insight into the related trust issues would be helpful.

  • Great article. Going through life in a state of happiness and gratitude will go a long ways towards creating more in your life. I just wrote a post where I talk about why you should be happy right now. Life is short. Also your present state will determine how people react to you and being upbeat will open up more doors. Thanks for the reminder.

  • You two are adorable. :)

    I was shown one of your articles about a year and a half ago from a friend. It was so fitting at the time and it seems as though time and time again, your posts hit home. Sometimes they are the ones that instantly make me feel better about my life. Others are the hard hitting ones that pull me from my self-pity and give me just the kick in the butt that I need. Regardless, I’ve become a better person through reading each of them so THANK YOU!

    Keep being the awesome YOU! You’re doing great deeds that I know you hope for but it’s happening at levels that you could probably never fathom.

  • I love the simplicity of these four truths. I will carry them in my heart today - and I thank you for your reminder and for posting this article. Life IS good!

  • The video brought a smile to my face, more than just reading the text! Thanks :-)

  • Just look at the number of positive responses! Its a hit!

    Possible new topics:
    1. Starting over: the clean slate
    2. Cutting your losses

  • This is just what I needed to watch at this very moment. You guys are the best.

  • Hi Angel and Marc;
    The video was just like you were talking directly to me. Thanks, I love all the emails and the things you post here.

  • It was great and too cute. Always inspirational. I think doing it every so often would be awesome.

  • Guys, you are great! This video is beautiful. Keep starring in more videos. It’s a great means of connecting with your audience.

  • I love your blog, I get your daily emails and they are so inspirational! I can’t wait every morning to get your email and it always brightens my day, or if I’m having a bad day, or I’m sad or not feeling well, I know I can always count on you to make me smile… thank you for reminding me of that!

    PS: my parents live outside Orlando :)


  • Loved this! I read through the message, and it hit me - as it usually does - right where I needed it. Then I went back and watched the video… Now I have tears in my eyes. You two ROCK! Thank you Thank you from the bottom of my heart! <3

  • Great video. Wonderful thoughts to keep in mind. A very close wonderful friend pointed me to this great resource. More please!

  • Great video! May I suggest Angel speak a little more slowly; it would help the message sink in better for listeners like myself. And Angel, smile more - it’s beautiful! :)

    Thanks buddies, you make my days brighter.

  • You two are so adorable! I loved the video and your wonderful inspiring blog!

  • Your inspirational words on video and the weekly blog are wonderful. Marc and Angel you should consider being inspirational talk show hosts on national TV and subscription cable stations.

  • Didn’t watch the video. I skim over the bullet points and if they catch my attention I will read the supporting paragraph.

    I stopped watching blogger videos a long time ago. It usually takes the speaker longer to get to the salient points. I don’t want to sit there with the hope that they will eventually get to it. Nothing personal, as I said, I didn’t watch this one either.

    Keep writing. What you write is great.

  • Thank you. Many times, your words of encouragement have kept me afloat! I like the video.

    The struggle that’s occurring in my life now is alcohol addiction; for myself and my intimate partner. Alcohol is especially insidious due to it’s high acceptance in our culture. Thanks so much, God bless you!

  • Video blogging in my opinion is the BEST way to go. People will connect with your words way more when they have a face and a voice to go with them. It is the direction that the internet is going. I use it in my blog and have seen my viewership sky rocket. Keep up the great work!

  • Yes definitely. I think you should do more videos. Nice to see the awesome “real people” behind the blog that has helped so many including myself. Your inspirational blog has affected me in so many ways so I thought I would give back by sharing something else I find inspiration in. It’s As you may know, this is a website where people give inspirational talks. One I saw recently really touched me and so I thought you all might like to check it out. It’s by Phil Hansen and it’s called “Embrace the Shake”. Essentially it talks about embracing and accepting those limitations we find stopping us in our daily lives and using them to be extraordinary. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Linked to my name above. Enjoy! And thank you Marc and Angel!

  • The Lord works in strange & mysterious ways!!! I was at an all time low point in my life… lost my income, living with a relative and was just informed that unemployment has been denied. I haven’t been following the posts and have been deleting everything except job prospects on my email . I accidentally clicked this email open and read the lead in… this video’s for you…. and had to see it all.

    THANK YOU for the inspiration, for the positive spin, for your efforts. You’ve lifted me up if only for a moment.

  • You guys make me smile everyday at least once! Have another one ***smiles*** I love the video blog idea!

    I survive mental awesomeness (illness) and generalize anxieties daily, I would love to see more info in changing negative thought patterns and acceptance of struggles. We have the ability to process 60000 thoughts a day and 59999 of them can be negative :( get positive people!!!! Xoxoxo love you guys! MBL

  • Hi, I would love it if you two could talk about heart break… how to get thru it and overcome it, how to keep moving forward, how to keep the destructive thoughts and feelings at bay, how to keep hope of loving alive, etc… I’m going thru this right now and it’s very difficult. Every day is a struggle, and I could definitely use some advice in this area.

  • Big numbers of responses = you have hit a nerve! I see I am not alone in being so deeply touched. You upped the ante with such a personal and warm message. Thank you, thank you.

    Possible topics:
    Leaving a relationship in a respectful and compassionate way
    Standing your ground (within a relationship)
    Permission to excel (where others around you have failed or at least not gotten as far)
    Seeing/hearing/feeling yourself (your behaviors) from the perspective of the other person
    If I were 40 years older than I am right now
    If I can be 7 years old again today
    How do I want to be remembered? and by whom?

    Good reads for material (some are “heavy”):
    Melody Beattie, Codependent No More
    Tony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within (or audio)
    Brian Tracy, The Power of Clarity ( or audio)
    Judith Herman, Trauma and Recovery
    McKay and Fanning, Prisoners of Belief
    Cline and Fay, Love and Logic

    Again, thank you for the miracle that is your post. As Rebecca aptly put it “Keep being the awesome YOU! You’re doing great deeds that I know you hope for but it’s happening at levels that you could probably never fathom.”

  • Loved the video. More please!

  • Hi you two,
    Nice to put faces with your names. Thanks for your writings, I read them often and many days they make my day brighter. Your post today reminded me of something that I thought I’d share back with you.


    COMPASSION by Miller Williams:

    Have compassion for everyone you meet even if they don’t want it.
    What seems conceit, bad manners, or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen.
    You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone.

  • Love, love you two everyday! You always have words that speak right to me, thank you!!!

  • I’m a new reader and love your messages. I liked the video but am very glad you also included a transcript. I often read blogs while my husband is sleeping so having the transcript means I can read now and not have to remember to watch later.

  • Loved it.
    As for topics, addiction is a biggie.
    We all have ourselves and/or loved ones who struggle with it.
    Women for Sobriety is a wonderful resource for the females in your following.

  • I sooo needed this today! I’ve been a faithful reader of M&A for nearly two years now, and I LOVE the video concept! I hope you two make this a regular feature. Outstanding :-)

  • Thank you. . . . I love the video keep it up.

    You have no idea how many people you save, you inspire, you help. From the bottom of my heart… Thank you Marc and Angel.

    God Bless

  • Liked the video - short and sweet.
    Love your site, nearly always pertinent to my life.
    Thanks :)

  • I was disappointed in the video. I envision the two of you sitting on a rocky mountaintop, dressed in white robes, beatific smiles on your faces. ;-)

    You are my gurus and I look forward to every new post. And I actually loved the video and hope to see more!

  • I don’t know but I started crying when I saw you.
    You are way to awesome and great!
    Thank you!

    You’re doing great work and I am sorry I didn’t buy your book yet, but these small doses of wisdom are actually maybe more efficient than a whole book.

    Also I personally get more out of the written words than the video. They sink in deeper and the triggered inside reactions are become conscious easier than with the video where I am concentrating on listening to the outside.

    But you should put the videos on youtube and use them to advertise the website and the book.

    I wish you much, much success and financial rewards, because you really help to change the world one person at a time.

    I’m sure I’ll soon buy the book, but will keep reading your online messages.

    Thanks again, Michael

  • Thank you Marc and Angel. Every morning before I start my work I am excited to read your blog because it inspires me. God bless you more. :-)

  • Maybe you could tackle some light, practical issues:
    1- Machines we need to master and how to get access to help
    2 How to impress your boss daily, as much or more than you did when you were hired
    3 - Promises we should keep
    4 - How to recognize our biggest asset
    5 - Ingredients of effective learning space

    Thank you.

  • Dear Marc and Angel,

    Thank you. After a rough day, this video was exactly what I needed. The perfect words at the perfect time. You give me hope.

    Also, I loved that you did a video this time!


  • You are always exactly what I need at the end of a hard day! You give me a reason to smile and feel encouraged. Truly a great gift that both of you have. And yes, the video was terrific and I would love to see more!

  • Nice to see you guys in action and hearing the sincerity (I’d never doubted it!), in your voices. Great idea for once a month…


  • Love the encouraging video! It’s nice to see more of you after reading your powerful messages for a few years now.

    I also appreciate the video transcript. Most days I prefer reading posts to watching (long) clips, so this is a nice gesture to your regular readers, thank you!

  • Your site helps me feel better. Thank you.

  • Thank you for the message in the video, it’s just what was needed today. I always find your articles so inspiring. Keep doing what you’re doing :)

  • Video was perfect! Not too long, but poignant and heartfelt. Thanks so much for what you do. You two really do make a difference!

  • Thank you for the video and for all of your inspirational messages!

  • Loved the video! It was a pleasure to get to know you this way & get a sneak peek into your lives. I love you both even more now!!! A monthly video would be a terrific addition to your blog.

  • Nice to see you in video-person. I really enjoy reading your inspirations and sharing them (verbally) with my fitness training/wellness coaching customers.

    Hello Marc and Angel: I was unable to view your video. My computer refused to cooperate. I would like to say that I find your blogs very helpful and insightful. It is a positive way to begin my day. It would be great if you published your book like a “regular one” for people like me, who prefer that format for a variety of reasons. Thank you for the reminder to smile more often. Wish you both continual success and joy!

  • I love to read your blog… awesome job guys! It inspires me when I read it. As for the video, mmmm, not a big fan of video. Reading is something we can do anytime, anywhere.

    As many of the other readers have said thought, it was nice to see you both in the video.

  • I love receiving your emails. Thanks for writing great messages each week to lift me out of the miserable Winter. I have bought your book because I want to show my support for you both to encourage you to keep writing. Besides it would be great to read it when I am not online. I will also use your book to teach my young daughters about living. Thanks again and keep going with your great work.

  • I don’t usually like videos, but yours was really cool. It’s great hearing your guys’ voices :)

  • Wow! Thank you so much for the feedback everybody!

    Marc and I have noted many of your suggestions and we have decided to put out one new video on a monthly basis.

    And as always, thank you for the loving words and the positive reinforcement.

  • I only learned about you two a few months ago. I think you are both angels living here on earth, helping guide us and inspire us along our way. I love what you are doing and would volunteer to help you in any way I can! Thank you.

  • Incredible. I can honestly say that you guys raise my life up when I feel down.

    Thanks a lot and please keep doing what you’re doing.

  • Inspiring and uplifting as usual :)

    I would like a vid with tips for staying in the present moment and quieting mental chatter.

  • I love this. Thank you for always reminding me and us that happiness persists even beyond the ugly backdrop of life. I began to feel happier, value the people around me, and not tolerate those who let me down. I’m beginning to feel stronger and more confident of myself. I am happier than ever all because of your posts. Keep up. We need you.

  • You guys are the best! Love the video blog; it made me perk up and smile. I have forwarded your messages to several coworkers who now subscribe to your weekly emails. Don’t know how I happened on your site, but yours is one email in a sea of emails that I actually stop, read and reflect on.

  • Fantastic video! Make more of them.

  • So cool to finally see you guys! :)

    Keep the videos coming. That was such an excellent, concise way to get an inspirational boost in the morning.

  • I love your work and examples. Where/how can I send a donation?

  • Thank you! The video made me cry and then smile. A phrase you use is so pertinant right now with a parent of mine telling me ( for the last 45 yrs) you can’t. . . . You are making me realise that I am me! Big hug and thank you x

  • This made me smile and brought a tear to my eye. I been having a totally rough time for a long time but you guys always send me a little wisdom and positivity to help me through.

  • Angel! Marc! Thank you! You’re changing my life!

  • I’m not really the type of person who leaves comments but I just want to let you guys know that when I’m going through something really tough that it makes me wanna give up, all I need to do is go to this site and it never fails to make me smile. It’s like a magic potion and gives me the strength to stand up and say “I can do this”. You guys are such a blessing. Just keep up the fantastic work! Big hug! :)
