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 | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | 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.

Working Mothers Raise More Successful Daughters and Empathetic Sons

Working Mothers Raise More Successful Daughters and Empathetic Sons | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

A mother's guilt never ends.


You can never quite do enough, try juggle enough, be enough in an age where the demands of family, work and (hopefully) a personal life keep you hopping morning, noon and night.


Huffington Post titles tell mothers how to "Be a Working Mom Without Hating Your Life," "End the Mommy Guilt for Good!" and "Conquer Mommy Guilt Once and for All."


But what if you needn't feel so guilty in the first place?


What if the very fact that you're a working mom actually has substantial and meaningful benefits for your children?

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Thanks to a new Harvard study, you can stop beating yourself up and feeling guilty about working outside the home, Mom.

6 Unconventional Ways to Make a Lasting First Impression

6 Unconventional Ways to Make a Lasting First Impression | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

So it's easy to believe that you should be rehearsing for that moment when you first meet someone from whom you want something.

It's easy to tell yourself that you have to prepare precisely what you're going to say, to show you mean business.

But here are a few suggestions that might be slightly unconventional, but might help you stand out from the mass of people who've read the same self-help book about making a killer impression.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Think of all the people who try to sell themselves the minute they meet someone. Aren't there better, more subtle ways of being liked and remembered?

The Best Places to Work for Millennials Like, Whaat?

The Best Places to Work for Millennials Like, Whaat? | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

The reason why the list looked funny at first blush, has more to do with stereotypes of millennials. Specifically, there's a lot of talk about what they want and everything it takes to keep them happy at work, topics on which Inc.com has surely written plenty


People seem to think all millennials are working in converted warehouse spaces--drinking beer and playing video games. Employers assume twenty-somethings need an open floor plan and a casual dress code to be happy. The truth is that most young people, like the generations that came before, just want to be respected, paid fairly, and treated like professional adults, even if they're working in a cubicle in a strip mall.


It's not a coincidence that a lot of companies with startup mentalities have great employee feedback loops and open communication like No. 61 Newscred's practice of monthly employee satisfaction surveys and "Happiness Town Halls." While the company also has ping-pong tables, employees get more satisfaction from a vacation policy that's simply, "be reasonable."


Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

At first glance, Fortune 's Best Workplaces for Millennials seems off. Upon closer inspection, however, it all makes sense--and there are some good lessons for business owners in satisfying employees of all ages.
