Wisdom from my favorite motivational video


This video created by Goalcast is my favorite motivational video by far. I can't seem to get enough of it. There are ten people giving speeches and sharing their wisdom. So many thoughts are included that, if taken to heart and expressed, can make a difference in our lives.

I will be adding to this article continually. Each time you watch a great video, you gain more wisdom. The video's title is "Goalcast's Top 10 Most Epic Inspirational Speeches. | Vol. 2 | I liked it so much I put it on the homepage of this website. If you haven't seen it, you are in for a treat (you will see it on this page as well). Goalcast did an excellent job.

Watch the video and then look below it for commentary. Again, I will be adding to it from time to time.

Here's the video:


Some Thoughts To Live Life By From My Favorite Motivational Video

Here I list of some of the wisdom:

Peter Dinklage - "The world might say, 'Your are not allow to...' Please Don't even bother asking [for permission]. Don't bother telling the world you are ready. Show it. Do it. Trust me." Peter is a small person you've probably seen many times on tv and in movies. He got out of his head and worked, not letting the negative thoughts stop him.

Inky Johnson - "Commitment is staying true to what you said you were going to do, even when the mood you had said in has left. Even on those days you don't feel like doing what you said you were going to do, you do it anyway." Inky Johnson had a great future as an athlete. He was injured and has no use of his right arm. When you find out about his early life, you will understand what a remarkable human being he is.

Lisa Nichols - "The big moments in your life are made up of the little decisions that you make." Lisa's life took a major downturn and she was pronounced Clinically Depressed. Her rise is remarkable for all of us. But if you are female, in a bad relationship, there's even more in her story for you.

Lou Holtz - "Life is a matter of making choices. Wherever you are, good or bad. It comes from the choices you make. Don't blame anybody else." "There's never a right time to do the wrong thing. And there is never a wrong time to do the right thing." One of the greatest college coaches ever. He's so funny, but is great at making points that matter in life.

Denzel Washington - "Hard work...works.", "Working really hard is what successful people do.","Dreams without goals are just dreams. I try to give myself goals every day. You have to work at it every day." Great actor. No doubt. But he had to work very hard to get to where he is. He demonstates that hard work...works.

Muniba Mazari - "This life is a test and a trial. Tests are never suppose to be easy...It is okay to be scared. It is okay to cry. But giving up should not be an option." Muniba is paralyzed in a wheel chair. She could have gone to a very bad place psychologically. Instead, Muniba is an inspiration.

Admiral William McCraven - "Little things matter. If you can't do the little things right, you will never be able to do the big things right." This admiral was the man in charge of the Navy Seals that got Bin Ladin. He is an inspiring leader.

Rick Rigsby - "Combine knowledge and wisdom to make an impact.", "It's not a problem if you aim high and miss, but there is a real problem if you aim low and hit." Such a funny man. But his story illustrates how much wisdom he has, and...how much his father, with a third grade eduction, had in so many ways. He comes across with so much sincerity.
