The Best 10 Motivational Videos on YouTube

The Grey, Joe, Motivational Video, Poster

Once in a while a video comes along that is powerful enough to transcend language barriers and speak directly to our soul. That’s why today I’ve decided to do a list with the motivational videos that had great impact on me and have served me  as a motivational source  almost on a daily basis.

Top 10 Motivational Videos On YouTube

Dream – Mateusz M

Key Quote: Most people they raise a family, they earn a living and then they die. They stop growing, they stop working on themselves, they stop stretching, they stop pushing themselves.

If today were the last day of my life – by Steve Jobs

Key Quote: Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked, there is no reason  not to follow your heart.

Be Phenomenal – MotivationGrid

Remember Me – Devinsupertramp

Vision – Mateusz M

Key Quote: We have to see ourselves there long before it happened.

How Bad Do You Want It – Eric Thomas

Key Quote: When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe then you’ll be successful.

 Mindshift – Ping Pong Studio

Key Quote: If you want something, you’ve got to be relentless.

Unbroken- Mateusz M


Key Quote: Anybody can feel good when they have their health, their bills are paid, they have happy relationships. Anybody can be positive then. Anybody can have a larger vision then. Anybody can have faith under those kind of circumstances. The real challenge of growth mentally, emotionally and spiritually comes when you get knocked down. It takes courage to act. It takes courage to start over again.

No arms, No Legs, No worries – Nick Vujicic

Key Quote: It’s a lie to think that you are not good enough. It’s a lie to think that you are not worth anything.

The Last Lecture – By Randy Pausch

Key Quote: The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.

      I have heard of CT Fletcher. I just don’t like how he puts “mothafucka” in every sentence.

    Very nice assortment of videos, Hristiqn. No Arms, No Legs, No Worries by Nick Vujicic is my all-time favorite video. I would love to sit with this man and just listen to him talk. His enthusiasm for life is contagious. Thanks for putting all of these together for us!

    Awesome! Nick V is an unreal human being. If I need a kick I read about him. Understanding on a tiny level what he faces daily AND what he achieves pushes me to go above and beyond no matter what happens in my life.

    I’m not disagreeing with any of these choices. They are extremely good ones. I do think that any list of greatest motivational stories is incomplete without including Team Hoyt. Anyone that thinks they’re doing everything they can as a parent should watch the story of a father’s love for his son and then ask themselves again if they’re doing all they can. Almost certainly the answer to that will be “no”.

      One of my all-time favorites! I’m a full-time swim coach, and this is a video that I make all of my athletes watch. As valuable a life lesson as sport can provide.

    The ‘How bad do you want it’ video has been a huge motivator for me over the last couple of years. I know a few others you listed too, but many of them are new. I just got amped up for my workout I’m about to have. Great list 🙂
