What Motivates You?

Recommended Posts

Abi

    I don't see a thread that is dedicated to motivational or inspirational videos. I know when I am all alone and need a pick me up, a video encouraging me to feel good about myself, can do a world of good. I hope many of you will share the videos that lift you up, when you're feeling down. If not at least this will be where I dump tons of feel good vibes. Enjoy. Now, my only dilemma is, which of the many great videos out there do I start us all off with? :thinking:

This will do nicely I think.

@Mx.Drago Yes!!! Music that motivates is welcome as well. I mainly meant like spoken word but, we all have our own vision of motivation...as we should. Thanks.

I love music and I use it a lot to get motivation. I'm sorry for the major change in vibe :D lollll

But here's 2 examples of music that motivates me.

The vibes just fine as far as I'm concerned. Though they may have to move the thread if it takes more of a music theme overall. We shall see. Excellent music choices to get motivated by too. :)

@Abi Music and music videos, are two totally different beasts, in my opinion.

 

@MaryMary Ace Base was my jam since I was little. My first cassette tapes were a Christmas classic collection, Queen, and Ace Base.

@Abi oh I'm sorry, when I think motivation I immediately think of music but I didn't want to derail the thread.

Motivation takes many forms. There's no wrong one, if it moves you. That's exactly the way this thread should be taken, I think. Videos that motivate. I hope to see many ideas take shape here. It could be many types of videos. Who knows? Maybe one of us is motivated by something someone else never thought of. Perhaps seeing that brief video or sharing that quick thought will change someone else's way they feel about themselves for the positive. That's my hope. I need all the help I can get too. I'm so selfish. LOL.

I love those kind of videos that have a kind of "challenge" tone to them, a call to action if you will. I would love to make one about "trans is beautifull" but here's a example of the tone I like :

@MaryMary This is an absolutely awesome video. I will watch it many times. I have a feeling this is one many of us will enjoy. If you get to make your video, I am positive it will be great.

Very invigorating video @MaryMary! Wow, it gets your blood pumping just thinking about it after watching. It brings emotion right to the forefront and emboldens the viewer. There was one clip from a movie I had not seen. The teenager who was cutting her hair to look more masculine...Does anyone know what movie that was?

@Mx.Drago That is one of the best speeches Charlie Chaplin ever gave in my opinion. It was such a powerful statement then and has long lasted the test of time. Excellent choice. :thumbsup:

Wow, quite the interesting thread.  I never thought of videos, recorded music, or other entertainment media as a means of motivating oneself.  Humankind never ceases to be interesting (at least to me).

 

[Personally, my motivators have always been rational argument (i.e., argument that I was unable to refute 🤔),  honor, and money-----generally in that order.]

@Suzanne1 Thank you for the compliment on this thread idea. I thought many of us would have a different take on motivation. I can certainly agree that a rational discussion is motivating. I believe we honor each other with patience and understanding. Money is not much of a motivator for me. I see no value in paper but, give me a hot cup of coffee and a pleasant conversation and you'll see the wealth in my eyes. That's just me though. I know we all have our direction and totally respect that.

      How many times have I been in my knees, begging God to fix me and everything??  Begging.   Five hundred?   How many times have I cursed God, thrown vile swear words at Jesus, God, whoever for not fixing me and the world?,( in my timing and in ways that I could see it) Fifty?   How many times have I asked the name of Jesus, God, and angels to save me and keep my eternal soul? Five?   I love angels and they love me! Sometimes they show this love by interfering.   Do I believe? I say yes, but I must try to do so at times.   Praise the Lord for making me a girl that is becoming a woman!!

      @Susan R pain levels are very stable. I have been getting these ‘jolts’ Of my nerves waking back up, those have been interesting.  Earlier this afternoon I was experiencing a pretty satisfying tingle and that actually turned out to be the packing trying to come out. It has been the weirdest pain yet .   I can’t wait to experience the new exciting sensations to learn how my body is recovering. I do know that I’ve been luck with almost minimal swelling and only bruising noted to my ‘taint’ area. Currently, just laying in the hotel bed catching up on 90 Day Fiancé with my best friend. Debating a nice Benadryl and Tylenol cocktail later for sleep!  Any questions you can think of, I don’t mind trying to answer based off of my personal experiences! Kylie
    • Susan R
      Good to hear Kylie. Have the pain levels stabilized? Are there any instances where you think, Oh what was that?   I appreciate these updates very much.   My Best, Susan R🌷

      I love this thread, but found it harder to answer than I thought Shay. Possibly because over the years my ex made me choose between my passions and her, and I always chose her. 😨   My biggest passion first and foremost is for my kids and family. 💖 My children are amazing and I love them to bits. I also have 4 sisters fairly close in age and regularly think we are unknowingly starring in some unscripted black comedy due to the almost constant drama in our lives.   Outside of that my position as a Christian minister and the privilege that my faith enables me to help others through some of the best and worst times of their lives.(This is very personal to me, but happy to chat privately if folks are curious about it)   D&D - getting together in person or online and being part of a creative story where almost anything can and will happen. So much fun!   Ultimate frisbee - though I haven't played in over a decade I still deeply love the sport and throwing a disc around with my friends. I never go anywhere without a disc in the car, just in case...   Swimming - Whether it's in the sea, a river, or a loch I cannot wait to get wet once I discover somewhere with open water. It may be cold when you dive in, but once you're acclimatised nothing beats it for me and I always feel amazing afterwards.   At the bottom I would actually place my most common hobbies: gaming, reading and binge watching films, TV and YT Series - I do them for escape and some introverted social connection but am not really passionate about them specifically but I certainly wouldn't want my life without them.

      Thanks all! Been a pretty decent day. Packing decided it wants to start coming out. So a little extra reinforcement and all is well. I think my surgical team gets a kick out of my concerns, all have been benign.    Going to enjoy a good meal tonight and sleep up for tomorrow. Pretty exhausted today!    ❤️

      @Tori M did you see the guy and his wife on CBS Sunday Morning who photographs and paints birds. You are probably familiar with him. I appreciate your passion. And love the photo you posted.
    • Tori M
      I think some of you already know my fascination with nature, but my main passion now is birds.  Not just feeding or watching them, but "chasing" them and, most interesting, learning as much as I can about their lives.  This started in 2014 and at one point I was spending almost every waking moment watching, reading or chasing them.  Chasing means traveling miles and hours to catch sight of a rarity or exploring environs different than our own neighborhood to find different species.  Lately, I am less obsessed and haven't traveled as much but it's not unusual for me to load up the car with binoculars, scopes and cameras and spend the whole day driving around looking for great sightings. In the east, birding is largely a summer sport but to my total surprise, here on the west coast it's a year-round venture.  Yes, the birds fly south, but there's a whole different batch that summer in Canada and the Arctic that also fly south.... to here!  So, in the summertime, birding is about migrating songbirds, but in the winter there are millions of waterfowl and sparrows here.  It's a funtastic hobby and I'm always [too] eager to answer questions and educate, lol.  I'm not an expert but I've crammed a lot of learning into a few short years.   Sandhill crane w/cygnet (not my photo) Sandhill cranes have been around for at least 2.5 million years

      If my Chautauqua Series is able to?start up again after Clovis there is a girl who plans to do a program on the American home appliances from the 1950s 1960s and 1970s. For those not familiar?with Chautauquas they are first person living history where the presenter is usually a well known person and you learn so much more about that person. This girl would be a generic housewife. We have had usually 2 a month every month for 14 years until covid came. We do it as a donation basis and have musicians open with period music. We have a wide range of people from George Washington to robin Williams Tecumseh to sacagawea. Jesse James to rosemary Clooney carry nation to general Dwight eisenhower Beethoven to solar schlindler Laura singles wilder to Walt Whitman. Sorry I miss these shows they are fun and enjoyable.

      @Dev this site is amazing and so user friendly. Thank you so much... Shay

      I find that an unusual but very intriguing hobby!  The first time I heard of it was a boy guesting on a TV talk show (was it Ellen?  Leno??).  They're interesting machines that transformed the American home and housework.  I once sold Rainbows and got to see one of the very early models.... all steel and weighed a TON.  No more nerdy than my fascination with bridges, lol❣️
