We've all done it. We've had a shit, or a great day, or felt a lack of energy and needed that kick to get the day going or start a tough workout. We've all headed to the mighty YouTube and searched the terms "motivational speeches". Am I right?
I do it a lot. It drives me to finish a blog, design a new crazy Equilibrium video for Instagram, or put together a TRX workout that's going to make our clients' eyes pop out.
They can be cheesy. They can be cliché. But they're cliché for a reason because they've been around for years and have been applied to human life through every situation imaginable.
So I went through some of the regulars that I watch, I'll post the links to these below, and I chose some of my favourite lines that you can use to look at getting what you want or finding what drives you. Here they are with the links to my favourite videos at the bottom:
Raise your standard – We don’t get what we want, we get what we HAVE to have.
When you’re no longer willing to tolerate something, that’s when your life changes
People who don’t have goals work for people who do
If it was easy everybody would do it
The pro goes to work, sick, kids, problems. This is what you do.
If you don’t do the work, act on the ideas, they will never work
Everyone in the world has a list of things they SHOULD do. The only thing that makes these things happen is when that SHOULD changes to a MUST.
Have a very clear vision, have a very clear goal. If you have the best aeroplane in the world but the pilot doesn’t know where he’s going, then all is lost.
Shoot for the top, big goals, think big, then you’ll get big.
Nothing can beat hard work
It’s necessary that you work on yourself, get rid of the energy draining people in your life
Those who say they can, and those who say they cannot, are both usually right
If you want to be great, obsession had to be a necessity
If you can see it in your mind, then you can hold it in your hand
...and my favourite
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve
