I've been researching some speeches. I plan to memorize a few of these, if anyone has them transcribed, or can find them transcribed, please do
share. These speeches should be taught in school!! Poetic, Powerful, and Pertinent! Timely and Important! Motivational and Enlightening!

But somewhere along the line, you changed. You stopped being you. You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you you're no good. And
when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame, like a big shadow. Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all
sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there
permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and
keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!
Susan Boyle audition. Practically laughed off stage before she started, and 30 seconds into her performance the crowd is on their feet and can barely

gonna happen. Either you are going to get off the treadmill before me, or I am going to DIE on that TREADMILL! Ridiculous, sick worth ethic. “You
don’t set out to build a wall, you just lay a brick. You lay that brick as perfectly as you can, and then you lay another one, and pretty soon you
have a wall.”
Love what you’re doing. Be a little insane. You have to be, because to succeed, you have to go past that point where any sane person would

I got weary watching all those videos and the dozens of others that I didn't post for one reason or another.
Please, please post more! I want this to be a resource for Motivational Speeches, Music, Poems, or whatever. A place one can go to spend 5 or 10 or
30 minutes getting ready for their day, and then ATTACK their day with enthusiasm!
