A collection of motivational videos

#1 Postby robert » Mon Jan 02, 2012 3:16 pm

With New Year's Resolutions in full swing, I figured I'd start a thread comprised of motivational videos.

These are just a few, please add to the list by posting your own favorite videos. Obviously we all have our own interests and some things will resonate some and not others. Let's get a whole lot of variety here.

Thanks!

I've always loved that Will Smith one. There's a reason he is so awesome. Here's two more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWAw7gxf ... re=related (The book he mentions, "The Alchemist," is excellent), and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSu9pjCECvY

These are the clips I return to again and again when I need an attitude uplift before hitting the gym....

And a poem all empowered ladies should have on their wall:

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman

Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Awesome! Thanks for sharing.

I have so many more to update, but my connection is pretty slow where I'm staying the next few weeks.

As I get faster access, I'll list more of my favorites.

Have a great one!
