What's your favorite "Success Motivation Videos", or motivational speakers???

Let me know so I can check them out....

I found this guy on youtube..."Evan Carmichael top 10 Rules" video series. He's not a motivational speaker, but he's set up like 100+ videos. They're like short 10 minute clips highlighting famous people around the world, and their top 10 rules for success. It's really really cool.

Not to knock them though, but it's kinda strange too that the top !% er's get to "write the success book" so to speak. When in actuality, probably like 80% of there equation is that they "got luckly". Like my first thing I started way back in the day "sheer luck". It was way beyond luck. It's was like 90% luck, 10% work and skill. Same with other things I've done.

I seen this speach recently by Larry Page who started Google. The story the way I heard it goes...He was the one who wrote the "original google program". Which was like "nothing". Any amature programmer could have wrote it. The guy wasn't even smart. He fluked out to get into Stanford. Didn't even have the grades to get into college but they let him in almost as a favor. But what's funny is they call him now a "computer scientist" on google. Well last time I checked, most real "scientists" in most things easily had the grades, and or more likely were given a "scholarship" because they had some brains. (okay watch my computer never work again now). But all in all what I'm saying is like come on, even Google was a big fluke so to speak. Or zukerberg stealing the winkvos twins idea and running with it, again luck.

But I digress...I still think it's important to learn from the top people around the world regardless. Most people just aren't gifted enough to have any orgininal thoughts anymore. So the regurgitation of the top people are the next best thing.


But again, it's not the guy in this video.... it's this "video series" that's actually pretty good....this is just one of the random people...

Luck is what you make of it. The person who is constantly out looking for opportunity will be more 'lucky' than the one who is only putting in a minimal effort.

I prefer CSP (Counselor Sales Person) training myself. No matter how many times I take that class I always feel more knowledgeable.

Ideas and concepts are the first order to make one successful in any endeavor and then the follow through 99 per cent of usually boring, shirt-sleeve work.
