10 inspirational videos everyone should watch on repeat

posted on: Monday, 10 November 2014


Here's the deal - some days are tougher than others. Some days feel damn near impossible. But in the end, as humans we are one powerful bunch. If ever there were a moment when you feel you don't have the strength to battle through, thank your lucky stars for the invention of Youtube, as this handy machine now has the power to inspire the universe. Yes, I turn to Youtube in times of need. In fact, I have a whole playlist of videos that I watch when I need reminding that we are all made of tough stuff. So, if you need an extra push this week, here are five videos that I find inspirational and that demonstrate incredible human strength and the power of "drive."

1. The incredible story of Olympian Derek Redmond.


2. If this young man doesn't bring you inspiration, well, I just don't know what will. What an amazing surprise story of talent and bravery. 


3. You think you are made of tough stuff? Try this on for size...



4. While controversial, this Nike ad also carried an amazing message... listen and internalize that which the Jude Law-like voice is saying... 


5. This one's marketed as an inspirational video for women, and does showcase some of the most powerful voices of our time, but is definitely applicable for both men and women alike in the wise words shared.


6. This one is a two-parter. One part for the moms out there that maybe need reminding of how much you are appreciated... and you are. Second part for those of us that need to remember that a source of inspiration lays right in front of us most days - with our parents.


7. Who knew Jim Carrey would be so inspirational? This works, people...


8. We can't have an inspirational video roundup without a taster of Toni Robbins. Some pretty motivational words here...


9. Here's to the crazy ones...


10. Last, but certainly not least, is a classic I think everyone should watch every day... in fact, download on Spotify and listen to this every morning on the way into work.
