Nike says everything you need is already inside

Have you seen the Nike video ad about courage?  It is awesome.

It gives me chills of joy and excitement to watch it.

It inspires me.

It also teaches me a little something about effective marketing.  If I can connect emotionally to my potential clients, I don’t have to sell them.

They’re already sold.

Just Do It.



  1. Thanks for posting this. I hadn’t seen this commercial and it certainly is powerful. Three simple words – Just Do It! – Brilliant ad campaign which is an excellent motto for life.Too often, we don’t "do it" because of fear, indecision, uncertainty, kindness,…First time you jumped into the pool, skied down a slope, gave a speech. All examples of when you "just did it!" Sometimes life takes a turn, and we lose that adventuresome spirit. Perhaps all that is necessary is to add some tools & techniques to your "tool kit" to regain the confidence to "just do it!"

  2. Hi Marianna,What a thoughtful comment! Thank you for stopping by and sharing your insights.It does sound simplistic, the idea of ‘just doing it,’ but when we really get it, really let it sink in and inform our actions (rather than dismissing it as trite or cliche), our whole life changes for the better.Thanks again, Marianna.

  4. Self contradictory message from Nike. If "what you have is already inside", then you don’t need to buy a 200 dollar sneaker from Nike to "just do it"
