The Five Most Inspirational Speeches Of Our Time That Will Be Sure To Motivate You

The Five Most Inspirational Speeches Of Our Time That Will Be Sure To Motivate You | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Inspiration is a stimulating feeling that we seek to motivate us, to continue pressing forward through hardships and to find meaning amidst chaos. What inspires us is sometimes found in the rarest of forms. It is sometimes in plain sight. It is often stumbled upon without intention, and it is sometimes graciously handed to us in the form of wise words, spoken by experienced and influential minds.

 

For those who are feeling aimlessly lost in the journey to find themselves, those who are feeling stuck under the darkest clouds waiting for a ray of sunshine and those who simply need a dose of encouragement, heed these words of wisdom.

 

From some of the most gifted minds to the greatest influencers of our generation; from currently eminent leaders to those illustrious leaders who made a difference and left us too soon, here are some of the most inspirational speeches of our time in chronological order.

Susan Salvary's curator insight, August 22, 2013 12:28 AM

As I indicated in my post "What Inspires You?", I think inspirational and motivational speeches are wonderful for getting you moving again when you are stuck, giving you a kick in the butt when you are feeling sorry for yourself, or just reminding you of how great you really are. Here are five amazing speeches I will be adding to my Inspiration Library.

Leadership is a chess match. Every decision you make influences your next five decisions. Unfortunately, many leaders don’t realize the implications of each of their decisions.

Successful leadership is a by-product of those resources that you are able to access throughout the course of your career.   Resources that are not given to you, but rather earned as a result of hard work, sacrifices, respect from your peers and career coaches, and the failures that taught you lessons along the way.

Every leader fights a never ending battle for improvement, growth, excellence, and progress. It’s the “never ending” part that gets you down. Apart from intervention, discouragement sets in.

With over 35 years experience in the field, Jay highlights the need to measure EQ in order to really be successful and to drive meaningful, lasting, positive change in people.  And measuring from an intra- and interpersonal intelligence perspective gives you the complete picture. As Jay states, "In a world of upside-down thinking on many subjects, perspectives and issues, learning how to realistically evaluate our own EQ helps to keep us right-side up and balanced in our approach to ourselves, others and our work."

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, August 6, 2013 7:48 AM

Thank you Bobby for sharing this article with us!

 

I especially agree with the statement"  What we can’t measure we can’t improve."

 

Being intelligent about our emotions is excellent; however, we do have to know what success looks like.  Then we have to know how to measure success.

 

Make it a great day!

Things certainly have changed since I've been in the corporate world. No more stuffy, buttoned down, doubled-breasted suits. No sir.

 

"Our research indicates that what really matters is that leaders are able to  create enthusiasm, empower their people, instill confidence and be inspiring to  the people around them," says Peter Handal, chief executive of New York  City-based Dale Carnegie Training, a leadership-training company.

 

Handal shares his 5 keys to effective leadership:

1. Face challenges

2. Win trust

3. Be authentic

4. Earn respect

5. Stay curious

 

Ask yourself: Do I possess any or all of these qualities? Could I call myself a leader?

John Michel's curator insight, August 5, 2013 10:49 AM

There is nothing wrong with a leader who is competitive, results orientated, commercially driven, or profits orientated. But if their drive isn’t coupled with a genuine desire to make a meaningful difference; to help others; to contribute to the community, or to honour others, then no matter how successful, their credibility as a leader will  be diminished, even if only a little. Like it or not, our nature is to contribute. If a leader doesn’t embrace that drive within us, then the team whether they are consciously aware of it or not, will hold back with their loyalty and commitment.
