What Motivates You?

4 02 2013

Inspiring movie clips, speeches, quotes, I can’t get enough of them to help with personal motivation! There is nothing like thinking through your goals and what the future will bring while watching someone who has already achieved greatness tell you you can do it.

Over the years I have seen many great inspirational clips. For this blog I have decided to pit two of them against each other for you, the readers of this blog to decide with your vote which is better. Watch the videos and then in the comment section place your vote for your choice. Voting will end one week from today and you can only vote once per day. Tell your friends to vote because it will be public record as to who you voted for and it will be forever bragging rights if you voted for the winner 🙂

Enjoy, Steve Leurquin

Funny I just clicked on both videos at the same time. So I’m listening to both of them at the same time! Awesome!

I vote for the 1st video. The passion speaks to both the ant and the elephant simultaneously. Just do it.

My vote today is…..Just do it! I remember the first time I ever heard that talk, even to the detail of where I was sitting. Loved it then, love it now. Thanks Steve!

I’ve been a sports nut my whole life, so it appears my vote is an easy one………..I’m going with “JUST DO IT”!!! (how’s that for a diversion?!!)
I believe because I’m getting what I need put into my brain, my priorities have shifted and the “intellectual” side of me is starting to poke through! I love my sports and I think HGIA is awesome, but there’s something about that southern drawl of Art Williams (probably one of those awesome Texas folk) and the mention of that magic word LEADERSHIP that put’s it over the top for me………

8 02 2013
stevesager

Gary, you are dead on my friend!

8 02 2013
AdamRossman

I wonder if there are any compilation videos like HGIA that have clips of Art Williams in it….that would be pretty cool!

8 02 2013
AdamRossman

You got that right, Gary! Texas does have some pretty good folks!!

I still gotta keep voting for How Great I Am. That’s such a good one!

Bears/Packers, 17-7. Looks to me like a 1st quarter score of a good old-fashioned butt-kicking of the Packers by the Bears!

8 02 2013
AdamRossman

Keith…..seems like you’ve seen a lot of Bears/Packers games before! I like your analysis!!! 🙂

7 02 2013
Keith Wrage

Love both, but have to keep voting for HGIA. Love all the comments. For me, the combo of music, pics, video and movie clips, and famous quotes give it the edge over Art’s. HGIA mixes in the dream, struggle, victory, and inspiration with the motivation!

8 02 2013
AdamRossman

Keep those votes coming!!

My vote for the day = HGIA!!!!

Kevin Hamm

I’ve got to go with HGIA. It truly gets the elephant rolling.because the elephant sees with pictures and moves with emotion. It allows me to frame our current struggle with our future success and how that struggle will move others to do the same, thus defining the purpose for the struggle. Thanks Steve.

Just like a Bears/Packer Game! This is starting to be a blowout! 17-7.

7 02 2013
Keith Wrage

Bears/Packers, 17-7. You a Bears fan now, Mr. Leurquin? Good choice if you are, of course!

I have a dream that no one can take from me. I found both to be very insperationail. My vote is for the “How great I am” video. It shows what one can achieve from any position in life. TEAM, Together Everyone Achieves More.

Thanks for your vote Ken, 16-7

Wow!!! Both video clips are fantastic Steve, but my vote has to go to “How Great I Am”. I love that Art Williams speech, but the medley of all those great moments in sports, history, and classic movies is Very Powerful!!

7 02 2013
steveleurquin1

15 to 7

Two votes each. We got family battling against family! This thing is going down to the wire! 14 to 7!

Who knew? It’s like the Bears vs Packers or the North vs the South! It’s getting pretty intense around here. I think we all know who the winner is going to be though. Everyone might as well quit voting now….How Great I Am is definitely going to take the Steve Leurquin Life blog video contest!!!

Who knew? It’s like the Bears vs Packers or the North vs the South, or worse; the Cubs vs the Sox! It’s getting pretty intense around here. I think we all know who the winner is going to be though. Everyone might as well quit voting now….How Great I Am is definitely going to take the Steve Leurquin Life blog video contest!!!

It is like the Bears vs Packers! One team is way up, and we all know which team that is 🙂

Patty Blakely

Really like them both. Have to say that How Great I am hit more of the senses, made me feel more energized, so that will be my vote for today.

6 02 2013

Two more for HGIA up 8 to 5.

6 02 2013
Kevin Knuteson

HGIA gets me more jacked…where Just Do It seems to give me more focus. Everything that I am seeing right now…excitement and motivation have a slight edge…so I’m going to roll with HGIA!
Side note, I think we should set up a rugby promo against the Mielke team;)

6 02 2013
AdamRossman

Rugby? Really?!

7 02 2013
teesarossman

Could be fun, but a little dangerous….we have a lot of choleric women on our team, self included.

14 02 2013

Speaking of good videos….doesn’t everyone love Kevin’s video on the Stealth 180 site?!

6 02 2013
AdamRossman

“I’m gonna show you how great I am”

I love them both, but that one inspires me more

6 02 2013
steveleurquin1

1 vote for each How Great I Am is up 6 to 5.

6 02 2013
ryanblakely1

I vote for HGIA! it really depends on the persons personality I believe on these. The Just do it pretty much just tells you what you have to do to reach success. The HGIA shows the people going through there struggle and reaching their victory. Also encouraging you to win.

6 02 2013
AdamRossman

I think you’re right, Ryan. It’s gonna end up being a very close vote.

10 02 2013
ryanblakely1

Adam I believe that Sanguine’s and phlegmatic’s are most likely to vote for HGIA. Choleric’s and melancholy’s are most likely to vote for just do it.

6 02 2013
AdamRossman

Which personality do you think will vote for which video?

5 02 2013
Lori

Great idea, Steve. It’s going to be hard for me to choose, but today I’ll say “Super Duper! Do it!”

5 02 2013
steveleurquin1

After the three most recent votes HGIA is up 5 to 4!

5 02 2013
Keith Wrage Jr

HGIA!! Love the clips and pics!

5 02 2013
Teesa Rossman

My vote is for How Great I Am. The Art Williams one is true, funny and good, but the HGIA one gives off the emotion of what it feels like to be in relentless pursuit of your passion and come out on the other side victorious!

5 02 2013
AdamRossman

Really!? You’re going to make us pick? They are both awesome!!!

If I have to say one is better then I’m going to vote for How Great I Am

5 02 2013
steveleurquin1

Time for my vote. How great I am video!

4 to 2 Just do it!

5 02 2013

Awesome!! I’m gonna make sure to get in as many votes as I can!!

Art Williams is a great speaker! But How Great I am is a video I watch about once a week, and it gets my blood going every time. “Never Never Never Give Up” ~ Winston Churchill.
