We live in a world that is overflowing with information. There are millions of blog posts, videos, podcasts, books, and articles on any single topic you can think of. As fellow bloggers, creatives and entrepreneurs, I'm sure you have experienced information overwhelm too. So, to make things easier for you, I thought that I'd put together a short list of my top 5 videos for anyone who is or aspires to be a blogger, creative, entrepreneur or any combination of these.
All 5 of these videos really impacted me and my thinking and it is for this reason that I cannot rank them. They are all equally amazing for different reasons and are in no particular order. Most of these videos go for about 15 to 20 minutes except for one which goes for just over 40 minutes but it's so good that it seriously felt like it was 5 minutes. So this is a great post to PIN NOW for a rainy day when you can curl up with a cup of tea and have a little inspiration binge.
Start With Why - Simon Sinek Ted Talk
If you ever struggle to keep motivated with your blog/business, attract the right clients, grow your email list, earn the money you want or achieve any other outcome you are aiming for then Simon's talk is for you. I truly believe that what Simon talks about is the key to success.
Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address
Until I watched this video I had no idea what an inspiring man Steve Jobs was. In this speech he shares a few experiences from his life and the important life lessons he learnt from them. Each time I watch this video I am inspired and reminded of the importance of following my intuition and going after my dreams.
Elizabeth Gilbert & Marie Forleo on Fear, Authenticity and Big Magic
This is the 40 minute video, but I was hanging off every single word that came out of Liz Gilbert's mouth that it seriously felt like it was only 5 minutes long. This interview helped me connect with my creative nature in a way that I never had before. It also changed the way that I think about what it means to be creative and finding your purpose in life. And if you haven't read her new book Big Magic yet, go get yourself a copy! It's amazing!
The Truth About The 4 Hour Work Week - Alex Ikon
I absolutely love Alex. He is one of the most authentic, genuine and inspiring guys that I know of online. I find it so refreshing to see in a guy. In this video he is no different in sharing his experience and thoughts on the 4 Hour Work Week. His insights are so profound that it made me totally re-evaluate what I thought I wanted. If you are aspiring to living the 4 Hour Work Week lifestyle I highly recommend you watch this.
Brene Brown Ted Talk - The Power of Vulnerability
I freaking love this woman! I don't know how she does it but in this talk Brene manages to combine humour with such a deep topic. While this one is not specifically about blogging, creativity or business it still had a major impact on me as a blogger and business owner. The insights and wisdom Brene shares are all about vulnerability and embracing your authentic, imperfect self. If you are wanting to create an authentic, passion fuelled, heart centered blog and/or business then this is a must watch.
And there it is, my 5 must see videos from bloggers, creatives and entrepreneurs.
