The Greatness Within is one of those videos, I could watch everyday and never get tired of it. It took me 2 long weeks to finish it, but it was worth it. The video is definitely one of my best motivational videos. The goal was that this video would make you think about life. I have used speeches from Jim Carrey (yes, the comedian), Ashton Kutcher, Les Brown, Jaret Grossman and Eric Thomas. You can find the original commencement speech of Jim Carrey here. The movies I used are Limitless, Invincible, The Pursuit of Happiness and Neil Young The 60 Year Old Skateboarder. Enjoy!
The Greatness Within
On my youtube channel you will find new inspirational videos every month. Please feel free to give me suggestions about topics for the new videos or movies or speeches you think I should add in the comments below or in youtube comments. I will appreciate your help, because there are great speeches coming out everyday and I just can’t keep up with all of them.
My favourite quotes from the video are:
In life you don’t get what you want, in life you get what you are, not what you want!
My father could have been a great comedian but he didn’t believe that that was possible for him, and so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an account. When I was 12 years old, he was let go from that safe job, and our family had to do whatever we could to survive. I learned many great lessons from my father, not the least of which was that you could fail at what you don’t love, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.
I hope all the videos that I create will motivate some of you to chase your dreams. Remember that greatness is within you, you just need to unleash it!
