Motivation can be something we all struggle at times to find, so here's a big dose.
Whether it's work, school, gym or business we can all do with a bit more. And whatever the source of this motivation, it can be transferred to other areas of our life.
Here we have compiled the best videos from the internet, to motivate and inspire you - not just in the gym, but in every aspect of your life.
As you will agree, these videos come from a variety of sources, some of them unlikely, but the messages contained within them aren't just designed to get you up off the couch and into the gym for one workout like most 'Gym motivation'. These are life-long messages.
Joe Rogan - Haters As Source Of Inspiration
This is my all time favourite. For those that don't know, Joe Rogan is a comedian/UFC commentator, who hosts one of the greatest and most popular podcasts on the planet The Joe Rogan Experience.
This particular video is an exert from a podcast with regular guest Bryan Callen.
In it, they discuss the power of not adopting a 'hater' mentality when others around become successful and using it instead as one of the most powerful sources of inspiration to be better. To use it and realise you're not living up to your potential.

The fact that you are more-than-likely using an Apple product to view this right now, means there's something that Steve Job's can teach us about life.
Steve Job's was known for his perfectionism, so it's understandable that when he was asked to do the Stanford commencement speech in 2005, it was brilliant.
Steve Job's tells three stories from his life that taught him his greatest lessons. He deals with joining the dots in your life and finding what you love.
It's long, but it's a great way to spend 15 minutes and more than worth it.
