Outdo Yourself Story: Brighten Up The World You See
At Ferratum Money, we know money can often help open doors, help create opportunities, and help you make things happen. That's why we have created our financial products as solutions to enable you to say yes to life more often, and spend more time doing the things that matter most.
However, inside many of us, there is a nagging feeling of another life waiting to be lived – the life we are meant to live. At Ferratum Money, we aim to bridge the gap between the life you dream and the life you lead.
The Chance To Make Your Mark
Out recent Outdo Yourself contest was created to encourage you to put your ideas into action, and to do the things in life that perhaps you've put off doing in the past.
To enter, we asked you to send a short video about a project or goal that is close to your heart. Maybe it's a project you started or something you've always wanted to do - but either didn't have the time, or the means to make it possible.
To reward you: we offered a generous grant along with the mentorship you need to help make your goal a reality.
We received so many wonderful videos (133 from 18 countries to be exact) and we had the challenge and many sleepless nights deciding on the 3 winners.
After we selected our winners, we immediately realised that many of the videos had the power to inspire many more people and deserved even more exposure.
Each month we will spotlight a submission from Outdo Yourself with the hope that these stories inspire you to pursue your goals.
Seeing The Positive All Around Us
When it comes to putting a smile on people's faces, brightening up people's day, and re-colouring the way we perceive the world, Bulgarian artist Siyana is making a visible difference.
Siyana quite literally brightens up the world we see, spreading messages of positivity and transforming the city into a living art mural. Siyana believes we can all smile more and think more positive by simply making our city more colourful and lively. In Siyana's own words: "Let's follow our dreams by creating a vision of our dreams all around us!".
She makes a great point. Think about it - most of us wake up in the morning, switch on the TV, and the first thing we see is war, violence, and global warming. After only minutes of being awake, we think the world is going to end before we've even had our morning coffee! However, it is important to remember that we choose how we want to see the world. So, why not start your day off right and see the world as a brighter, happier place?
For this project, Siyana aims to transform her city via inspirational quotes at bus stops, painting trash cans and rubbish containers in bright colours, colouring crosswalks with vibrant patterns, and promoting positive messages on billboards along motorways and sidewalks.
Siyana's vision has already started to resonate with people. In fact, she recently received an award in Bulgaria for her efforts.
Well done and thank you Siyana for putting a smile on people's faces!
