It was halftime during one of my 7th-grade football games. And we were losing 14 - 0. With our knees planted in the grass, my team was quietly huddled, drenched in sweat and defeat. We all knew the game was over.
That's when our assistant coach bursted through our circle and shattered our pity party, delivering one of the best motivational speeches I've heard to this day.
I can't directly quote him because he said some things that are inappropriate for a blog post (and, in hindsight, probably for a bunch of 13-year-olds too). The point is, he harnessed the power of words to rejuvenate a physically and emotionally drained team. And we came back clawing to win the game.
Just like in sports, being motivated at work is crucial for your performance. This rings especially true when you have a looming deadline, an important meeting, or colleagues or customers depending on your performance.
Think about the last time felt generally unmotivated. What brought you out of that feeling? Sometimes all it takes is a good night's sleep or seeing the fruits of your labor to fire you up. Still other times, you might listen to someone say something that resonates with you -- that alters the way you've been looking at a particular task or problem.
Motivational speeches and speakers can come in all different forms, but this is the one thing they have in common -- resonance. They hit the right listener at just the right time and in just the right way. Who knows, maybe this article is doing a bit of that for you right now ... (I can dream, can't I?)
To help you stay motivated, no matter what your job throws at you, we decided to compile 24 of the best motivational speeches from business, sports, entertainment, and more. If you want to get fired up for a project, watch these videos.
Trust me, I was wiping my eyes after I saw them. And while the messages vary from speech to speech, they will put you in the optimal frame of mind for tackling and crushing your next big challenge.
