photographer Dewitt Jones
. The stories are designed to help enhance training sessions or group meetings. Less than 5 minutes long, these video pieces are a great way to invite discussion and improve participation. They can be used as stand-alone pieces, or in conjunction with a full training session. Each video offers an easy way to share an inspiring Dewitt Jones message with any gathering.
The Set includes these stories:
- Act As If 3:30 (Trusting Ourselves) - Energy and passion come when we take a task we are hesitant to do, and--putting mind over matter--act "as if" we are ready, willing and able to succeed.
- Be Like a Sunset 2:05 (Attitude) Dewitt shares a beautiful story about the importance of always being, and doing your best.
- Be Open to Possibilities 1:50 (Vision) - Addresses the importance of a vision and how it allows us to be open to new ideas.
- Break the Pattern 2:00 (Change) - Shows that the key to solutions lies in the lens we use and the perspective we bring.
- Dare to Dance 2:10 (Self-Awareness) - Keeping your attention on what’s right, not on what’s wrong, and then daring to be yourself.
- Don't Be Afraid to Make Mistakes 2:00 (Overcoming Fear) - Teaches us how to learn from mistakes...so that a fear of making them doesn't hold us back.
- Endless Possibilities 1:30 (Appreciation) - If I make a mistake, how do I turn a win/lose situation into a win/learn situation.
- Our Journey Called Life 1:25 (Purpose) - Looking for purpose and meaning? Keep your vision clear, hold the focus, and work to make the vision a reality.

- What is Creativity? 2:00 (Innovation) - Proves that creativity is not just about vision and passion...it’s about technique and perseverance as well.
These stories can be presented in any order. They can be used to open a full training session on a related topic; or, you can set aside 30 to 45 minutes with your team and present a different segment every few weeks, utilizing both the accompanying activity and group discussion questions.
