    It's a little old, but it's probably my favorite video.
    I watch this every few days for the last month. Listen to it closely. Watch it again.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fsm-QbN9r8&feature=related
    (there's a part 2 there too, but part1 gets the point across)

    My two faves from it:

    We all have the opportunity here, with the tools and information provided to us, to make our dreams reality. It's about how bad you want it. Like he says in the video, "some people just kinda want it."

    And if you ever think, "Oh I'm gonna relax for a bit", or "I'm going to take a day off", or "I don't feel like doing this today", or "I'm going to skip this step", remember, there are probably tens of thousands of people who aren't taking that break. Who aren't taking that day off. Who aren't skipping that step.

    Every day we see, "Where do I start", "How can I get more traffic?", etc etc, when I hear this I cringe, and often leave a rude reply. Why? Because it's not easy. You have to bust your ass because someone else out there wants it more than you. Someone out there isn't looking for anything to be handed to them. They come here, and they read for hours on end, day after day, week after week. Those are the ones who will succeed. I've been doing this for 14 years, and I still come here daily and scan all the posts in the white hat and black hat forum, looking for something to learn.

    Anyways, enjoy the video. I really think it can change some of your lives. Don't just say you're going to change, do it.

    I liked the video, but for some of us, it wouldn't be success to work all day without eating or drinking or sleeping. Success for me is being moderately wealthy and still be able to do whatever I want whenever I want without needing to work more than a few hours of simple tasks and money counting each week. So the video is inspirational, but at the same time, it doesn't apply to most people.

    If you only want to be wealthy, get a job, work your way up, work extra hours every day, spend every extra penny you have on shares of the company, after 10 years find some other investors and make a play for ownership, get a job as the President, drive Bentley, hire cute secretary. Success.

    The point of IM for me is 1) The challenge. 2) Being able to work and watch porno at the same time. 3) Being able to work anywhere I want, on my schedule.

    You really have to know your definition of success before you can be motivated. I consider sitting down and writing out a list of goals and a realistic time line within which to complete those goals to be more productive than simply pushing yourself non-stop without quitting.

    But again, as an Idea, the video is great, in reality it isn't applicable to most people so it shouldn't be taken literally.

    Totally agree on all levels. Success for some people is getting married right out of high school and having children. I know my mom, who works harder then anyone I have ever met, is successful because she had me and my two brothers. To her, nothing else mattered. Some of us just want money and some of us want the lifestyle, like me.

    Motivation is derived in many ways. To me, the lifestyle IM brings is something that I could never ever give up.

    As for the video, it is a pretty inspirational video. I remember this one from way back. Other good ones are will smith videos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkrYX9EGUpM

    Every time I watch it, it makes me feel like I am not working hard enough no matter how hard I am working lol

    I agree, but I think the majority of people here are doing one of the following: looking to make extra money in these hard times / looking to make money in high school or after / looking for a job they can do from home and work for themselves.

    I think even if you want to be moderately wealthy, you're going to have to work hard to get there, for the most part. There's always some exceptions to the rule.

    And yes, the no sleep and no eating is excessive, but it serves a purpose, and I knew it would hit home to a lot of people here. Sleeping in on days you don't have to get up. Sleeping in on summer holidays. Sleeping in on weekends. etc.

    See, that's the thing though. It wasn't about money for her, but it was about busting her ass off to have a great family. It's about busting your ass no matter if it's to make money, have a great family, or just be the best at whatever you are doing.

    Yeah I watched a bunch of those the other day too. A lot of good ones there. And a lot of them are similar. When you see them talk though. You can tell why they are successful. They are so passionate about what they do, they want it so bad.

    Good video...I have a similar one that I watch everyday for motivation. I use it as motivation to workout, since bodybuilding is a hobby of mine...but it also helps me with IM and life in general. It's a collection of speeches by Muhammad Ali, Rocky, Coach Carter...but their blending and music really make it motivational to me.

    i agree with some of the above posts that everyone defines success differently. some want money, some want freedom, some want lifestyle, etc. it could very well be that some people consider sitting in front of the tv all day to be a perfectly successful and happy life for themselves. and some people could consider making millions of dollars through black hat tactics to be massively unsuccessful because of the dishonesty involved.

    just because some guy in a youtube video perceives success in one particular way doesn't automatically make his views correct for everyone in the entire world. if you wanna make money, do it. if you'd rather be lazy and make other people rich, do that. CPA offers only work because there are people on BOTH sides of the offer, both acting in what they believe to be their best interests.

    Weird how you can tell the success and confidence of someone by the expression on their face and the tone in one's voice. I know when someone tells me that I cannot do something and if I want it bad enough, they will know :) As for IM, I have experienced a lot of people bashing on me for what I do and I have lost a lot of close friends who I would have never thought in a million years I would lose.

    Well, I just let them go like a hot air baloon :) Everything is a test to see how bad you want something and to weed out all the jokers and bullshitters. Those who want it bad enough dont have to talk about because their eyes and their "doing" does the talking. Honestly, I love it when people say I can't do this and I can't do that. It makes me happy because I know that I can and I love making people look as stupid as shit. :) The whole cliche about people hating on you because they wish they could do what you were doing, is in fact so true. Any one agree?

    Thanks. I figured it has been, but I have never seen it and thought I'd share it anyways.

    I haven't lost friends. Barely anyone knows what I do even. I started making very good money at the end of highschool and just out of high school and I know it made a lot of people jealous. I would never talk about money, I almost felt bad being so fortunate while others struggled, and I really shouldn't. Even now, although I don't make nearly what I did back then, I always downplay how much money something was. It's almost like if I buy something nice, that someone else can't afford I feel bad. I always downplay the cost.

    Another thing. I want to be financially successful. And talking to friends, you can just see the different mindsets from me and them. Maybe their goal isn't to make a ton of money, but you can just see the difference of what goes on in their head and what goes on in my head. Then you talk to friends who are successful, and it's like night and day.

    Because it gives you inspiration.

    Bodybuilders (not the Pro's, but amateurs) watch body building videos before going to gym to give them inspiration/strength.

    Free Runners/Parkour watch free running / parkour videos so they get inspired, get the strength.
