4 Motivating Speeches to Jumpstart Your Day

Dream Big – Lisa Nichols


Just a heads up…you will shed a tear at the 3:00 mark.

“The reality is, we’re trained to stay logical. To stay practical. There’s nothing….realistic and logical about even my journey. Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles. Having three fights a week just to get home from school. Being told that I was the weakest writer my teacher had ever met, and that I should never speak in public by my speech teacher…Something turned and it didn’t come from outside. It didn’t come from my culture or my community. It came from within.”


Michelle Phan


“It doesn’t matter how small your beginnings are. All the matters is how big your passion is.”

 Will Smith


 “The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I’m not afraid to die on a treadmill. I will not be out-worked, period. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, you might be sexier than me, you might be all of those things you got it on me in nine categories. But if we get on the treadmill together, there’s two things: You’re getting off first, or I’m going to die. It’s really that simple, right?”

Derek Sivers


If you really care about starting a movement, have the courage to follow and show others how to follow. And when you find a lone nut doing something great, have the guts to be the first one to stand up and join in.
