    So I have some work I need to get done for a while now that I keep putting off.. I've been looking for some motivation to work and came across this video again.

    It's a scene from "Any Given Sunday" by Al Pacino. Some of you probably have seen it.

    I'm not gonna lie, this speech makes me get emotional.

    Enjoy!

    This is the granddaddy of motivational speeches to me. It feels a little out of place here, but not really. We all need dreams and a competitive edge to make it.

    The Falwell introduction is not very good unless you are a Falwell fan (I don't care much for preachers), but he does give some background on Art Williams.

    The end of Art's speech (the "Do it" part) has become a classic. But I like the full version since it intensifies the ending by leading up to it logically and emotionally. It's only about 20 minutes.

    I just watched this thing again and I am always astonished at how it really pumps me up.

    Edit: Oops, I thought it was his act "As If" speech.
