The Best Motivation Video

Steve Jobs 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

11,772,618 views · 15:05

Message: This video took off in the wake of Steve Jobs’ death because it embodies the principles that he leaned on to build Apple and live his life. He tells three stories that shaped the man he became. One, about how he was adopted as a kid and why dropping out of college was one of the best decisions he ever made. Two, about how getting fired from Apple was one of the best things that ever happened to him. Three, a quote about death that he first read when he was 17 and how it shaped his entire life. Check out IncomeDiary’s tribute to Steve Jobs.

Powerful inspirational true story…Don’t give up!

1,159,907 views · 3:15

I hope you’re more motivated to get things done today and during the rest of your entrepreneurial journey.

    Good list. Love the Rocky story. Also gotta love Will Smith.

    Only one thing missing though – ET the Hip Hop Preacher, Secrets to Success!!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsSC2vx7zFQ

    :)

    • John

      Man! that is the message I just need to hear. He knew my weakness – sleep! Man I am always so tired, but he said it right – How can one be successful if they love sleep more than they want success?

      I also love the line where he says something like, “success is when you realise you don’t need the money” – how true! Thanks for sharing this Eric

    • Nicholas Tart

      Hey Eric! I’m glad you mentioned it. That video made the original list of 12 but we cut it to get to 10. The other one we decided to cut was this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z19zFlPah-o

  • Ahmad

    Great post Nick! really a start up motivator to me. Everytime I watched the videos it gave me far more inspiration and motivation

    • Nicholas Tart

      I’m glad, Ahmad. Now it’s time to put some of that motivation to use.

  • Patrick

    Fantastic compilation. It’s a lot better than feeding your brain “Dancing With Stars” on a nightly basis!

    Patrick

    • Nicholas Tart

      Haha… (actually lol’ed) I couldn’t agree more, Patrick. I don’t even have a TV anymore. Stumble Videos is another great way to be entertained while you learn.

  • http://www.entrepreneursdiscuss.com Kelvin Igbinigie of Entrepreneurs Discuss

    I really enjoyed the Steve Job’s video. It’s an inspired me. Thanks for sharing these videos with us.

    • Nicholas Tart

      Sure thing, Kelvin. That’s a video that every entrepreneur needs to watch.

  • Mark Alan Effinger

    Awesome collection, Nick.
    As a serial entrepreneur, I know and have lived those struggles more times than I can count.
    And every victory is a lesson. A breakthrough. A realization that we can always do more than we believe. That last piece of the puzzle comes together and we look back in humble recognition of all of the people, forces, events and literally miracles that conspired to get us to that next goal.

    Awesome stuff, brother. This is the magic.
    Keep sharing your awesomeness.
    Best,
    ME

    • Nicholas Tart

      Thank you, Mark. Well-said.

  • Vijay

    Terrific post. I was just about to compile a similar list as well for my blog.

    I consider Nick Vujicic’s video to be one of the most inspirational and motivational videos of all time.

    Was surprised that wasn’t included.

    Wonderful compilation

    • Nicholas Tart

      Yeah, I thought about including Nick Vujicic’s story. Not sure why I didn’t. Maybe it made me cry too much ;).

  • Amin Ullah Khan

    Good to see Cameron Herold being covered. This guys made me a true entrepreneur. Thanks Nicholas for sharing this amazing article.

    • Nicholas Tart

      Yeah, his talk is amazing. I’m neither a kid nor a parent but it still resonated with me. I think I originally saw that video on Michael’s other site, Retire@21.

  • Anton

    Derek Redmond’s story tear breaks. ..

    • Nicholas Tart

      Yeah, if you don’t drop a tear during that video, you don’t have a soul.

  • Michelle Fradella-Barfuss

    Great compilation of videos! Very inspiring! Thank you!!

    • Nicholas Tart

      You’re welcome, Michelle!

  • Devin!!

    Great post Nick! I’ve seen most of them but they are all empowering. I needed that again since I’m dealing with a few recent failures. Check out Nick Vujicic, his story is interesting as well.

    I’ll have to learn more about your businesses, looks like a cool blog you have here. I’ll be hanging around.

    • Nicholas Tart

      Hey Devin! Another commenter mentioned Nick Vujicic. Thanks for checking out the blog. See you around :).

      You’re welcome, Lisha! This was one of the easier posts to write because I was in a state of perpetual motivation.

  • Fay Easton

    Thanks for the time its taken to produce this fabulous entrepreneurs’ library. Love the title of your own book and hope it just sells and sells and sells.

    • Nicholas Tart

      Thank you, Fay! The first time I emailed Michael was to be included in that book and now we’re good friends.
