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.

      I played Peter Green's "Oh Well" at a concert in December as I portrayed Tom Petty (who also covered it) but these ladies I'd never heard of did an excellent job. Ever hear of Haim?

      I'd always recommend finding comfort in your own company before trying to fill that role with others. Very early in my transition I started dating/hooking up with a lot of people to find validation, and I ended up in some less than comfortable situations. It's easy to think the only place that you'll find your worth is with a partner, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Learn to love yourself and who you are and it'll be so much easier to find someone that will love every part of yourself. In the meantime, developing a solid support network of friends and family will help you feel loved and stave off some of the loneliness you're feeling.

      OMG - Spooky Tooth is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES along with FREE. And yes - I loved Greg Ridley in both Spooky and Humble Pie and my favorite drum opennings was....

      And for ALL of us ladies - my favorite slide player who won the best slide player of the year 6 years running in Guitar Magazine and the retired her because they wanted someone else to win - it's a rare song I heard her do live in the 70's and loved the song like forever.   https://youtu.be/fD6ued71jqE

      Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! From what I've seen so far on this forum you all seem like lovely people. As far as what Erikka said about my age, when I came out I really felt like I had no other choice if I wanted to keep moving forward in my life. I know not everyone has the same support network and resources to transition while they're younger, and I recognize the privilege I have in that sense. Sometimes I find myself wishing I had come out sooner, but doing so won't change the hand I was dealt. I look up to all of you no matter when you came out, because that takes courage no matter the age.

      Hei alle Chris Squire was awesome. I saw Yes on their Fragile  tour in 1972, oddly enough they were the opening act for Black Sabbath. On the subject of great bassists, Greg Ridley, Spooky Tooth and Humble Pie fame, was so solid on laying down some really great bar band bass tracks especially with Humble Pie. Ronnie Lane was another great  bar band bassist. Laying down a great foundation is the make or break factor of a band.

      Velkommen Rory This is a great support to have in corner. You will find many ideas, informations and opinions here. Many of us are here by way of Jackie Rabbit's vids. I envy your age for transitioning. For many of us life got in our way and it was not possible to get here until later and late in our lives. So read, comment and post. Velsignelser Erikka

      I got the first one with my ex's blessing. When decided just one ear looked unbalanced and I wanted to have a more feminine look, my ex blew a gasket, She said that with an earring in both ears I would be competing with her  femininity, but while on a business trip I got the other ear pierced and reluctantly accepted it. The second set of holes I had wanted almost as soon as I got the second ear pierced. I waited until several milestones had been reached, one of those was when I finally and completely declared myself to be unapologetically trans.

      Entwhistle had to be great to keep up with and not fade into the background when competing on stage with Moon and Townshend.   Don't know how I hadn't heard of Wilkenfeld before, just listened to a couple of her tunes on Spotify. Digging the sound.
    • Rorelai
      It's always exciting to hear when people have the support of their family. Even if they're not perfect all the time it really goes a long way in making it easier to transition. Good luck if/when you tell others and I can't wait to hear more about your journey!

      Well, birthdays can be unpleasant in any number of ways.  I've never viewed my birthday as being something to celebrate, but it had nothing to do w/ gender identity.  For me it simply marked a day when I became another year older, and a year closer to death.  I now have a related, but different perspective----however, that perspective has even less appreciation for my birthday.
