You can`t deny the effect of a motivational video on someone`s mood.

Motivational videos that will inspire greatness in you

1.The one armed Yankee

To be the United States` top amateur athlete, an Olympic gold medalist, play for one of the best baseball teams in the world and score a No-Hitter.

It`s already hard for the two handed, but Jim Abbott did it with only one.

2.The one foot landing

In 1996, the US gymnastic team was one step away from winning their first Olympic gold medal if only could the 18 year old Kerri Strug finish her last vault.

For Kerri, a former Olympic bronze medalist it was like taking a candy from a baby, just sprint, jump and land safely.

She could even do it with both eyes closed if only she was fit.

With a twisted ankle, Kerri has to sprint down the runway, jump off the spring board, fly spinning through the air and stick the landing…. All on one foot.

She could quit and nobody would blame her, but she chose to fight, and she won her moment of life.

3.The Art of winning

“I said I was the greatest before I ever could be” Muhammad Ali

In almost every competition, the side who has the winning edge will end up winning and Muhammad Ali knows that.

It is a fact that hard work pays off, but when there is a small difference between competitors, the side who is mentally stronger will always win.

Muhammad Ali, Usain Bolt, Michael Schumacher, Yelena Isinbayeva, Michael Jordan, LA Lakers, Manchester Utd, Real Madrid, Barcelona and the Yankees…. They don`t just win, they Dominate, why?

Because they win it in their minds before it starts, they win their game it mentally.

They are champions and champions win before they even play

4.Even when you are down, you still have something

You will always have something that can pull you up, anytime, anywhere. Even if you`re a homeless, or an ex drug addict. You will always have it.

Just like this man.

5.BOUNCE

You win by the times you bounce back when you hit the floor, that`s when you expect nothing but victory.

6.With the right motive, you can do miracles

What are the odds for a basketball player (pro or amateur) to hit a game with a goal in mind of scoring +60 points?

 7.You are supposed to fail

Everybody fails, you just either accept it, or beat it and get something out of it.

It`s only when you don`t quit.

At 47 and and looks like this, it`s easy to judge this lady, only if you mute this video

10.You don`t have to win to gain respect

This race was his last hope to get an Olympic medal, but he got injured mid-race which meant that the 27 year old British runner Derek Redmond will no longer be able to achieve his dream (at 31, it`s too hard for a runner to win a 400m Olympic race).

Manage Your Energy so You Can Manage Your Time

Manage Your Energy so You Can Manage Your Time

One of the greatest ironies of this age is that while various gadgets like smartphones and netbooks allow you to multitask, it seems that you never manage to get things done. You are caught in the busyness trap. There’s just too much work to do in one day that sometimes you end up exhausted with half-finished tasks.

The problem lies in how to keep our energy level high to ensure that you finish at least one of your most important tasks for the day. There’s just not enough hours in a day and it’s not possible to be productive the whole time.

You need more than time management. You need energy management

1. Dispel the idea that you need to be a “morning person” to be productive

How many times have you heard (or read) this advice – wake up early so that you can do all the tasks at hand. There’s nothing wrong with that advice. It’s actually reeks of good common sense – start early, finish early. The thing is that technique alone won’t work with everyone. Especially not with people who are not morning larks.

I should know because I was once deluded with the idea that I will be more productive if I get out of bed by 6 a.m. Like most of you Lifehackers, I’m always on the lookout for productivity hacks because I have a lot of things in my plate. I’m working full time as an editor for a news agency, while at the same time tending to my side business as a content marketing strategist. I’m also a travel blogger and oh yeah, I forgot, I also have a life.

I read a lot of productivity books and blogs looking for ways to make the most of my 24 hours. Most stories on productivity stress waking up early. So I did – and I was a major failure in that department – both in waking up early and finishing early.

2. Determine your “peak hours”

Energy management begins with looking for your most productive hours in a day. Getting attuned to your body clock won’t happen instantly but there’s a way around it.

Monitor your working habits for one week and list down the time when you managed to do the most work. Take note also of what you feel during those hours – do you feel energized or lethargic? Monitor this and you will find a pattern later on.

My experiment with being a morning lark proved that ignoring my body clock and just doing it by disciplining myself to wake up before 8 a.m. will push me to be more productive. I thought that by writing blog posts and other reports in the morning that I would be finished by noon and use my lunch break for a quick gym session. That never happened. I was sleepy, distracted and couldn’t write jack before 10 a.m.

In fact that was one experiment that I shouldn’t have tried because I should know better. After all, I’ve been writing for a living for the last 15 years, and I have observed time and again that I write more –and better – in the afternoon and in evenings after supper. I’m a night owl. I might as well, accept it and work around it.

Just recently, I was so fired up by a certain idea that – even if I’m back home tired from work – I took out my netbook, wrote and published a 600-word blog post by 11 p.m. This is a bit extreme and one of my rare outbursts of energy, but it works for me.

3. Block those high-energy hours

Once you have a sense of that high-energy time, you can then mold your schedule so that your other less important tasks will be scheduled either before or after this designated productive time.

Block them out in your calendar and use the high-energy hours for your high priority tasks – especially those that require more of your mental energy and focus. You also need to use these hours to any task that will bring you closer to you life’s goal.

If you are a morning person, you might want to schedule most business meetings before lunch time as it’s important to keep your mind sharp and focused. But nothing is set in stone. Sometimes you have to sacrifice those productive hours to attend to other personal stuff – like if you or your family members are sick or if you have to attend your son’s graduation.

That said, just remember to keep those productive times on your calendar. You may allow for some exemptions but stick to that schedule as much as possible.

There’s no right or wrong way of using this energy management technique because everything depends on your own personal circumstances. What you need to remember is that you have to accept what works for you – and not what other productivity gurus say you should do.

Understanding your own body clock is the key to time management. Without it, you end up exhausted chasing a never-ending cycle of tasks and frustrations.
