I don’t know about you, but I’m a super fan of these motivational speeches that as soon as you listen to them, they put your batteries, they excite you, they touch your soul with every word and they lift you from the chair.
I like them because they encourage you to get out of the marked path to be yourself, because they motivate you to stop being one more blur of the system that follows the mass without knowing why.
I like them because they tell you truths. Because they remind you of what you already know but you forget and you need to be reminded of it again.
I love them because they elevate my doses of optimism, energy, utopia and reality through the roof and make me feel invincible, unstoppable and all-powerful. Come on, they make me believe that my dreams, no matter how big and crazy they are, are possible!
And as I like them so much, today I have prepared a selection of the 7 motivational speeches that I like the most and I have been saving in my list of “favorites” over time.
They are speeches that will move you, that will not leave you indifferent.
They will make you reflect, they will make you think, they will help you to know yourself and they will make you realize the URGENCY and the need for you to take charge of your life, to go out there to eat the world and start making your dreams come true.
Oprah Winfrey, José Mújica, Steve Jobs, Jim Carrey, Shakira, Les Brown and Will Smith have a message for you, a message that you are interested in hearing if what you are looking for are large doses of inspiration.
I have chosen them with the following criteria:They are media speeches of famous people.His message reaches me enormously and inspires me.I believe that speech can “stir” something inside.They are subtitled in Spanish and have a good image quality.They are speeches: they are not interviews or conferences.
Hold on to curves coming! Oprah Winfrey’s Motivational Speech
Oprah Winfrey is a woman who fascinates me for her charisma, for the strength she gives off, for the message she brings to the world and for being the living example of putting love and spirituality at the service of humanity.
Oprah is one of the most influential people of her generation, is considered one of the 100 most powerful women in the world and has been named as one of the four most influential people who have shaped the twentieth and twenty-first century.
This speech he gave at Spelman College is invaluable and very deep. I have put it in the first place because of all, it is the one that has reached me, personally, the most and has impacted me.
I remember when I first saw him, my tears started gushing down. I recognized in Winfrey’s truth my own truth. I saw myself reflected and portrayed in his words, in his philosophy of life. His message reached my soul straight.
Oprah begins the speech by saying that she has 3 things to tell you that will be of great help if you so decide. Do you want to know what they are?
I give you a clue about the first one… Who am I?
I promise you that today you will not go to bed being the same person.
Take note of his every word!
Motivational speech by José Mújica
I would have loved to put two speeches first, but as a little girl they told me that this was not possible, that first one and then the other.
Well, this motivating speech is no less shocking, deep and loaded with content, it is simply different. It also made me cry, because it has such a beautiful message that it reached each and every corner of my being.
In this speech José Mújica sends a message to you, a young person full of life.
The words he utters with that strength and that awareness are like a good ostiazo in the face, so that you wake up already in a P*** time.
His message is clear, direct and full of wisdom, that wisdom that comes from the accumulated experience of a man like him. For me, quite an example to follow. I wish many presidents and ordinary citizens had done as many things as he has done from the most absolute humility being president of Urugay.
When I grow up, I want to be like Mujica, and get to do half the good things he has done for his people and for the world.
Life escapes you and goes away minute by minute… and you can’t go to the supermarket to buy life! So, fight to live it!
And what did you do in this world? But if you had a dream and fought for hope… maybe there will be a little breath rolling in the hills and in the seas…
I strongly recommend that you watch this speech by Mújica. There it goes, straight to the veins!
I’m sure you’ll always remember it.
Motivational speech by Steve Jobs
This motivational speech by Steve Jobs is probably the most famous and mediatic of all speeches. And I think the fame he has well does justice to the value of it.
Today everyone associates Apple’s success with Steve Jobs, but what many do not know is that the road to success was not easy for Steve. And to understand how and why it got as far as it went, you have to look at this speech.
A speech in which he tells you three personal stories of his life and that will inspire you to live yours taking into account the most important thing.
Show the importance of following your gifts and talents and not allowing the lousy education system to override them. A discourse that conveys that failure does not exist, because failure only exists in the minds of the failed, not in those who struggle to make their dreams come true and get up from the ground as many times as necessary.
This speech contains many pearls of wisdom, here are some…
You will have to trust that the dots will connect sometime in the future. You have to trust something, your instinct, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the points will come together will give you the confidence to trust your heart.
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was my love for what I did.
I highly recommend it so that you dare to find what your passion is and fall in love with what you do while helping the world!
Jim Carrey’s motivational speech
Jim Carrey is much more than a comic actor and can make you laugh beyond the entertainment that some of his films such as “Two Very Silly Fools” or “The Mask” can bring you.
And what better than laughing while you are inspired, learned and reflected?
Rediscovering this conscious side of Jim has really amazed me. He has reached a very deep level of spiritual consciousness that he now devotes himself to spreading thanks to his media power.
In this speech you will hear things as fantastic as these…
“I am here to plant a seed today, a seed that will inspire you to move forward in life with enthusiasm and a clear sense of integrity.”
“Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens to you”
“I used to think that who I was ended up on the edge of my skin, that I had been given this little vehicle called the body from which I should experience creation, and although I could not have asked for a sportier model, this was after all a loan and had to be returned. Then I learned that everything outside the vehicle was part of me too and now I drive like a convertible.”
With exquisite humor Jim will help you reflect on life, the universe, people, who you are, why you are here, mind, presence and much more.
Prepare a bag of popcorn (as if you were in the movies) and have a laugh as your level of consciousness evolves!
