22 Of the best motivational videos online free

UPDATE: There was a problem with this post for the last few days but it has now been rectified. It seems that tables cannot be put into the database, even though it has been there for 4 months, I think another problem with the server.

For the last week or so I have been scouring the internet for free personal development videos, one of them I showed you yesterday; Steve Jobs. Well I have finally managed to get 22 great videos from some great personal development speakers and inspirational figures. I could have spent weeks doing this as I watched videos until my eyes were square.

you will probably notice there is a lack of female speakers in this. This was not deliberate there were not a lot of female speakers out there, the ratio was about 20:1, that’s 20 men to every 1 woman. Not a good statistic.

Anyway I have spent all day putting this together and I am proud to present 22 of the best personal development and inspirational figures of today.

  1. Thanks for sharing videos.

    i am feeling motivated after watching those.

  2. Some great videos there Steve. I particularly like the Nick Vujicic video. The guy is a real inspiration.

    Will :)

  3. A great post. However, I found some videos not playing.

    This is a list that I will definitely share with other leading motivational speakers in Africa

  4. Hello steve,

    your weblog is excellent. thanks.

    Sad that, “The Secret – movie ”
    is Dead link..or No video on that
    link http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/7YOU9u

    kind regards

  5. The Chopra video is Way of the WIZARD, not Warrior. FYI

  6. I was just looking for this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what is the Google’s problem that does not rank this type of informative sites closer to the top. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.

  7. are there any copyrights on the videos

  8. Great Blog and thanks for this list of videos – really useful to have them all in one place (your list of the top personal dev sites is also great).

  9. dear steven,

    you have done a great job. keep it up and we are always with you and best of luck for the further development of your career.

    steven “the science of getting” video is not working please help mee…..

    thank you..

  10. so far i like it but it did not showed me names of the movies

  14. Hi, Derek Potocki here,
    Thank you for this compilation.I’m bookmarking it now to watch it gradually.
    First time at your blog. Looks promising.

  15. Steve, when I go to YouTube this is the sort of thing I look for! While my friends are looking for stupid stunt videos, I am looking for every opportunity to grow! Thanks so much for the list!

  16. Very useful blog. Thanks.

  17. o my god ……. . unbeliveble …………..
    today is 1st day of my on this blog . I am sooooooooooo much happy for this blog thanks alot ……..
    ……………………………………. sir.

  18. I don’t know why but I’m still a sucker for Tony Robbins. Just to see where he comes from and where he is now. Simply amazing! It might also have to do something with the fact that I think he’s cute and has a sexy voice haha. Respect for Nick Vujicic btw.

  19. Wow. You have really put a lot of work in to finding and uploading these video links. I appreciate it.

  20. Thanks for pulling these videos together and posting them! I’ve added the link onto a post on my blog. What a resource you are!

  21. Hay… Can Anyone tell me how to download these videos.. please help me!!!

  22. Thank You! Even though this update is over 3 years old, most of the videos are still up and running. I was searching for something to motivate me, to help me lift myself from my inner funk – THIS IS IT!

  23. Check out Robin Sharma on youtube Steve. He has some outstanding videos… very basic yet profound… just like your blogs.

    Alternately, check out robinsharma.com…

  24. Hi Steve,

    Great Blog and thanks for this list of videos – really useful to have them all in one place (your list of the top personal dev sites is also great).

    I tried the link that you provided above to “The Secret” on Google Videos and it doesn’t look like it’s up there anymore, but I found a full version of it on another site and thought posting it here would be a better way to let people know about it than just post it on my blog – so here you go: http://v.ku6.com/show/68l4FTFqkVZhWcvX.html

    Hope this helps!



  25. Its my first visit on your blog and I must say I’m loving it ! The collection of videos is excellent . Will tell to my friends about it . :)
    Well I know of a personality test which I took sometime back . It’s a good one . Your visitors and readers would find it useful . Here’s it –
    5 Factor Personality Test – Personality as per the 5 most telling factors.
    .-= Tasneem R´s last blog ..Are you on Diet??? =-.

  26. Great list,thanks for putting the effort in to do this. It’s good to have a cross section of some of the best speakers and motivators to go to. love your site,see you again.
    .-= Sean Durham´s last undefined ..If you register your site for free at =-.

  27. I know it’s a bit of a divergence from the speakers listed here but Douglas Adams have very inspirational and motivational speeches even though they aren’t intended to be so.

    His quirky stories about life and the universe gives you this overwhelming joy that there is so much wonder out there. The words he speaks come round full circle and motivates you to seek the impossible.
