Best Motivational Videos for Entrepreneurs

Motivational videos for Entrepreneurs

Fail early, fail often, but always fail forward!

Here is a selection of my favorite inspirational videos for entrepreneurs, for those who don’t just aspire to make a living, but to make a difference, to add value, to fulfill their potential and make their dreams come true… for those who don’t give up.

Some of the following videos really nail it, some touch a sore spot: that moment when our blood runs cold, maybe because of a low self-esteem, fear of failure, fear of getting our fingers burnt… However, as Rudyard Kipling put it in his famous poem “If”: “If you can meet with triumph and disaster¬† and treat those impostors just the same…“. So don’t overestimate success nor underestimate the lessons we learn from failure. In my opinion, success is just¬† a statistical fact. Long term success only comes after many short term failures. The key is not giving up and keep¬† stubbornly going¬† forward, towards your vision; in one word:¬†resilience.

Those who make it are neither smarter or more educated than you; some of them have humble beginnings, some of them were even broke when they started their “impossible”dream. They failed over and over again before making it possible, and it goes without saying that they didn’t like failing . But guess what? Every cloud has a silver lining and failure is often a blessing in disguise (that moment when you realize that you can offer a solution to that same problem that previously sent you to hell in a handbasket).

Right now, the only difference between you and them is just that they were determined to reach their goal, they were committed to their vision. If you have a dream, if you have a vision, if you believe in your business idea but you get cold feet just before making the first step, let me give you a little nudge to change your mindset and start building your dream:

“Most people don’t reach their dream not because of failure, but because they give up”. That’s how this inspirational video begins.

Life is too short and our dreams too wonderful to let fear make big decisions for us, but most people do.

At the end of the day, if your dreams are aligned with your values, and personal ethics; if you can make your life and that of the ones surrounding you better, just… go for it!

Inspiring entrepreneur quotes:

The entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer ~ Nola Bushnell.

The secret of getting ahead is getting started ~ Mark Twain.

Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people don’t, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can’t.

Impossible only means that you haven’t found the solution yet.

The best way to predict the future is to create it.

Sell the problem you solve, not the product.

Chase the vision, not the money. The money will end up following you ~  Tony Hsieh

Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out  how far one can go ~ T.S. Eliot

… And some inspirational poems…

Henry Charles Bukowski wrote this magnificent poem: Go all the way, which along with the poem If by Rudyard Kipling is one of the best examples of motivational literature I have ever had the pleasure to read. You can now enjoy both on video. So take a deep breath and  get carried away.

Charles Bukowski German-born American poet, novelist, and short story writer: Go all the way

Rudyard Kipling , English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist: If

In English with Spanish subtitles
