Top 3 Favorite YouTube Motivational Videos


Motivation is what drives us to succeed. It doesn’t matter if you are trying to lose weight, meet your career goals or get out of bed in the morning – without motivation it is impossible to achieve. Here are three top motivational videos that can help you see that quitting is not an option, fear does not exist and that we are all ultimately in this together:

  1. If at First You Don’t Succeed: This video takes a look at people in history who were not overnight successes. It demonstrates that no one makes it big or reaches their ultimate goals without effort and above all, without failure. What separates the successful from the not so successful is one thing and one thing only: Determination. The only real time you can fail is when you give up. Continuing to believe in yourself in order to meet your goals means falling off your horse and getting right back up again. Fall on your back and you will always be looking up towards your goals. And if you fall face down? Flip over.


  1. No Such Thing as Fear: Fear it is not tangible. It does not exist unless you allow it to. You need fear to keep you safe, but you do not want fear to hold you back. “There is nothing to fear, but fear itself.” You cannot be afraid to succeed. However when you are afraid to fail, it will keep you from succeeding. You have to overcome your fears and step outside of your comfort zone in order to meet your goals. Fear takes away your power. You have to be willing to look fear in the face and know it will not hold you back unless you let it. Until you let go of your fear and face your goals head on you will not be able to succeed in making your dreams come true.


  1. Pay it Forward: There is no denying that we are all in this together. When you are feeling like the world stinks and that everyone is in it for themselves, take the time to stop and look around. There are acts of kindness all around you and if you don’t see any, then perform one yourself.

Staying motivated has to come from within each of us. Don’t depend on others to keep you focused on your goals and motivated to meet them. Instead look within yourself and be your own cheerleader strong in the belief you can do anything you set your mind to.
