Tony Robbins – What they dont teach you in School

Tony Robbins is one of the founding fathers of life coaching. The way he talks is very inspirational, and makes complete sense. In this excerpt he is talking to two Internet Entrepreneurs, one who was believed to be the first person to make $1m in ONE DAY online. They talk about how they got the initial drive to get going.

The first minute is worth the watch alone, but I think it will grab you. I have watched a lot of Tony Robbins, and I think this is one of his best videos. I have included the full 45min video below the shortened version for those who want to watch more.

Paper Fortress: 2009 – 2011 Reflection

Est. Reading Time, 1 minute, Video 3.30min

I was sent this video the other day entitled “2009-2011 Reflection”, by Paper Fortress.

The guys name is Stebs, and is from America. He has got a real talent for getting a very clean artistic shot, so check out his other videos. However this video is a subtly inspirational video that brought a smile to my face due to the message and the qulaity and variety in the shooting.

This is how Stebs summarises the video

Over the past year and a half, I have had the chance to work with so many amazing people, and watch so many of their lives change either though building their businesses or through simply experiencing life and enjoying everything it has to offer. I cherish every single one of the people I come into contact with and I appreciate everything that these people have given me. From the long road trips and sleepless nights looking for hidden skate spots, to the countless hours learning about all the hard work someone has put into their art and business, I felt compelled to put together a reflection of my work over the past year and a half. I wanted this piece to reflect my work as a whole, but also show my love for the people I have worked with. I wanted to show them how much they have shaped my life, and how being surrounded by passionate and endearing people has truly made a difference in my life. I hope to never stop doing what I am doing, and that I continue to meet amazing people every single day.

Thank you to all the people who have made my life so wonderful, and thank you to all the people who have been supporting my passion and showing their appreciation for what I do. I hope to keep repaying you in every way I can, and I hope that you keep enjoying the work I put out.

The Great Dictator Final Speech meets Inception

Estimated Reading Time 2 mins, Video 4 minutes

Sorry for the lack of posts for a while. I have been very busy with projects. However this came across me. It is from the Charlie Chaplin film The Great Dictator. The film is a spoof of Hitler and was released while World War 2 was still on. Over 70 years ago but it is even more relevant today than it was then.

“… You, the people have the power! The power to create machines, the power to create happiness! You, the people have the power, to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure! …”

This video has been powerfully mixed in with the soundtrack from Inception called Time by Hans Zimmer. I have included a transcript of the final speech below. The film is a masterpiece and is well worth a watch.
AMAZON.co.uk from £4.99

AMAZON.com from $2.99

This video is an alternative version which mixes in alternative video. It is good also but Chaplin’s performance should not be missed. The great comedian speaks the truth. This version of The Great Dictator speech features the song Window by The Album Leaf.

 

Transcript of the speech:

I’m sorry but I don’t want to be an Emperor, that’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another, human beings are like that. We all want to live by each other’s happiness, not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone.

The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way.

Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate;
has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.

We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in:
machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.
Our knowledge has made us cynical,
our cleverness hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little:
More than machinery we need humanity;
More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.

Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.

The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me I say “Do not despair”.

The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress: the hate of men will pass and dictators die and the power they took from the people, will return to the people and so long as men die [now] liberty will never perish. . .

Soldiers: don’t give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you and enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel, who drill you, diet you, treat you as cattle, as cannon fodder.

Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts. You are not machines. You are not cattle. You are men. You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don’t hate, only the unloved hate. Only the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers: don’t fight for slavery, fight for liberty.

In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written:
“The kingdom of God is within man”
Not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men; in you, the people.

You the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure. Then in the name of democracy let’s use that power, let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give you the future and old age and security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie. They do not fulfil their promise, they never will. Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people. Now let us fight to fulfil that promise. Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness.

Soldiers! In the name of democracy, let us all unite!

. . .

Look up! Look up! The clouds are lifting, the sun is breaking through. We are coming out of the darkness into the light. We are coming into a new world. A kind new world where men will rise above their hate and brutality.

The soul of man has been given wings, and at last he is beginning to fly. He is flying into the rainbow, into the light of hope, into the future, that glorious future that belongs to you, to me and to all of us. Look up. Look up.

Will Smith – Secrets to Success

Est. Reading time 1 min, Video: 9 min

I think it is a fair assumption to say most people like Will Smith. He comes across as I nice guy, and his films are entertaining for the most part. I was put forward towards this video of him which shows a side I have not seen before.

Obviously he is hugely successful, but it appears he does not rest on his success. He became successful through lots of hard work, and in this superbly made video, he comes across as a great motivational speaker.

Some themes he covers are:
Nothing is unrealistic, Talent vs Skill, and work ethic.

Hopefully you will enjoy this video of Will Smith’s secrets to success:

In another video he talks about the book Rich Dad Poor Dad. It’s a great book and worth a mention about how to get into the mindset of the rich vs the poor.

One amazing girl, with an amazing story at only 23, Maggie Doyne

This was the first Do Lecture from 2010 that I have seen, and what an amazing speech. Maggie Doyne was a high school leaver who went on her gap year and instead of drinking it up in Australia she turned to poorer countries, like India and Nepal (one of my favourite countries). Concerned with the conditions of some of the children she saw, with just $5000, at the age of 23 she has set up her own school for orphaned children at Kopila Valley, Surkhet in Nepal. She has taken children away from child labour to give them a deserved chance at education.

She has since started her foundation called BlinkNow Foundation to share her ideas with other young people. Maggie won the prestigious Do Something award in America for all that she has done so far.

If you are interested in Maggie’s work please visit the BlinkNow webpage.

Three Great Inspirational Scenes from Movies

While Hollywood does produce an unbelievable amount of rubbish, everyone loves a great film. However this selection of videos is not about great films, its about great inspirational speeches from films. There are some good films in there, but don’t be put off by any preconception of the film and not watch the clip. I included an amazing Rocky speech for just that reason, the film has no interest for me, however I was told watch this clip. And it is great.  So enjoy these scenes, watch them before you set out your day, before you sit to write an essay, before a job interview. Go out and don’t let anything hold you back.

1, Pursuit of Happyness – Protect Your Dreams
The entirety of this film is superb and inspiring. However this scene is arguably the most important in the film (no spoilers in it), and is certainly the most inspiring.

Buy on Blu Ray and DVD

2, Al Pacino – Any Given Sunday – One Inch at a Time
Unbelievable monologue, not about American football, but about life. One of the greatest actors of all time doing one of his most famous speeches. Whoever wrote this is amazing to bind this into a film about sports. Great motivational speech.

Available on Blu Ray and DVD

3, Rocky 4 – Father to son – Living out of the Shadow
As I say, don’t skip this just because you don’t like Rocky. Its about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. About going out and getting what you want despite “taking the hits”. Pretty amazing speech even coming from Stallone.

Buy Rocky Collection on Blu Ray
