30 Famous and Short Inspirational Speeches (5 minutes or less)

  • December 13, 2023

This post is all about the best short inspirational speeches.

Short Inspirational Speeches.

If you are in need of a quick boost of inspiration and motivation, you will find that in this post. I am one of those people who loves to get motivated. That sounds weird, right?

Well, a lot of people these days tend to give motivation a hard time because they don’t believe that it has lasting effects. In other words, they believe that what’s most important is your own self-discipline, because that’s what you have to rely on when motivation isn’t there.

And while I do agree with that sentiment in general, I will never pass up a great motivational podcast or YouTube video! 😀 There’s just something about them that even if they might not have lasting effects, they do truly help pump me up in the moment to get work done. And that’s usually what matters to me the most when I am looking for them in the first place.

So, here are the very best short motivational speeches so you can get that quick fix of motivation that you’re looking for, and ultimately move closer to your goals and dreams.

Short Inspirational Speeches

Believe in yourself speeches.

If you lack confidence or you are doubting yourself, these short motivational speeches will help you to believe in yourself again.

1. Rocky’s Inspirational Speech to His Son | ROCKY BALBOA

In less than 5 minutes, you’ll watch Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) explain to his son that if he wants to have the life he desires, he needs to believe in himself. He needs to stop listening to the people that tell him who he is, and instead go be his own person, and stop looking for someone to blame when things aren’t working out for him because ultimately it’s on HIM. This is one of the greatest inspirational speeches of all time.

2. Find Your Purpose | David Goggins – Motivational Speech

David Goggins is truly incredible. A former Navy SEAL, he has broken records and ran more races than you’d imagine. But the one thing that really stands out about him is his mindset.

Listen to this video if you want to be great. He tells you exactly what you need to do to get there.

Also, if you’ve never read David Goggins’ book “Can’t Hurt Me” , I highly recommend it. He talks about his rough upbringing, and how he was able to essentially become an entirely new person to become a Navy SEAL.

3. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF – Motivational Video (ft. Jaret Grossman & Eric Thomas)

This video is all about how important it is to have the proper belief system. If you truly believe that you are one of the best, you will start acting that you are one of the best, and eventually you may just be one of the best.

4. DON’T LET YOUR DREAMS DIE – Motivational Speech

This YouTube short by Mel Robbins is so good, I had to share it. A light bulb went on in my head when I first watched this. If there is something that is always on your mind, don’t let it haunt you forever because you never put yourself out there to try it. Go and DO!

Motivational Speeches About Not Giving Up

The following short motivational speeches are all about not giving up on your dreams. If you are losing hope, these short motivational speeches will inspire you to keep going.

5. Brené Brown It’s Not The Critic Who Counts

This speech will give you chills, and it is packed with great lessons about life. Brené Brown is a researcher who went viral for a Ted Talk, and here she talks about how to overcome critics and to keep believing in yourself no matter what. If you are worried about what people think of you, you NEED to watch this.

6. Amazing Motivational Speech by Denzel Washington 

This is another video that gave me chills. The main theme of this famous speech is “ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship”. Stay consistent even when it’s hard. Easy task after easy task won’t get you to where you want to be.

7. Steve Harvey – Inspirational Speech | Motivational Short Video | Incredible You

This short motivational speech by Steve Harvey is short but impactful. If you are someone who stepped out of your comfort zone to pursue something really difficult, and you’re thinking about giving up, this speech may just prevent you from doing so.

8. Ed Mylett on The Power of One More

Ed Mylett shares the story of how his father stayed sober until his dying day, and how Ed himself uses that same philosophy to never give up. Personal stories like these are always the most inspiring.

By the way, if you REALLY want to push yourself and become the best, read Ed Mylett’s most recent book on this same topic, “The Power Of One More” .

Motivational Speeches If You’re Feeling Behind

Are you feeling behind in life? If so, let’s change that. Watch these videos to be reminded that you are on your own unique path. You have no competition other than your past self. These short motivational videos will help you believe that.

9. Before You Feel Pressure – WATCH THIS | by Jay Shetty

Jay Shetty talks to a school class about how there’s no one “perfect” life timeline to follow, and that we are all on our own clock. 

10. Kevin Hart Motivational Speech

If you’ve made mistakes in your life (haven’t we all) this is a great story from Kevin Hart (famous comedian and actor) that will remind you of the power of making mistakes and pushing through hard times.

11. Oprah Winfrey | 5 Minutes For The NEXT 50 Years of Your LIFE

In this video, Oprah talks about the importance of really knowing who you are and what you want in your life. She talks about surrounding yourself with great people, and how to have enormous success. “Let excellence be your brand.”

Listen To These If You Need Perspective

Sometimes in life, we get so caught up in the day to day that we forget what truly matters – the people we love. If you are having trouble with something in life, give these videos a listen, because they just might help you realize what is really important.

12. Arnold Schwarzenegger – Organize Your Day | 1 MINUTE MOTIVATIONAL VIDEO

Are you the kind of person who always complains that you don’t have enough time to do something? If so, you’re not alone. We are all busy humans, running around doing a million things. But if you aren’t prioritizing what you know you should be doing, listen to this video.

13. How to Judge Your Life Using 3 Simple Questions | Brendon Burchard Speech| Goalcast

Have you ever heard of Mortality Motivation? It’s essentially what it sounds like… being motivated by the impending reality of your death. It sounds a little morbid, but it’s actually quite beautiful and it can be really beneficial if you harness it for good.

In this video by motivational speaker Brendon Burchard, he shares how a car accident when he was 19 gave him mortality motivation and changed everything for him.


This speech by Oprah was given to Harvard graduates, and it’s a unique speech because she talks about failing, even after the major success of her television show for over 20 years.

It’s refreshing to hear that even the most successful people fail. What really matters, though, is what you do with your failure. Do you learn from it and move on? Or do you give up?

15. YOU VS YOU – Best Motivational Video

This is a pretty intense video about competition. If your #1 competition is someone else, you need to change your perspective. Your only competition is YOU. The only thing preventing you from moving forward is you.

16. The Speech That Brought This Entire School To Tears

This is a speech about a man who never really paid much attention to his mother, until she passed away. It’s an emotional reminder to cherish the time you have with your loved ones, because you never know if the next time you see them will be the last time.

In my opinion, this speaker embodies many qualities of the best motivational speakers because he really knows how to capture the audience’s attention and pull on their heart strings.

17. 5 Minutes to Start Your Day Right! – MORNING MOTIVATION

This motivational speech is by a Navy SEAL who will remind you to start each day with a task completed, respect everyone, take risks, step up during tough times, and never give up. If you do these things, the next generation, and the generations that follow, will live better lives than we live today.

18. The Real You – Jim Carrey

This video is one of the best motivational speech examples because it reminds you of something so important: sometimes we can be so focused on earning more money, gaining fame, and becoming admired that we lose ourselves or we lose sight of what’s really important to us in the process.

Jim Carrey talks about how he is a great example of that. He got all of the money, fame, and admiration, and admits that that wasn’t really who he was. Sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that money and fame, or even getting to the top of the corporate ladder, while nice, aren’t going to be the thing that brings you fulfillment when it’s all said and done.

19. Ed Mylett Motivational Speech

I posted another motivational video by Ed Mylett above, but if you don’t know much about him, prepare to have your world rocked. He’s probably my absolute favorite motivational speaker because he is successful and he works hard, but he’s also (seemingly) a kind, family guy who’s been through a few things.

In this video, he talks about being “the one” that changed his family tree. Take a listen because I’m sure it’ll get you thinking on whether or not you can be “the one” in YOUR family.

P.S. If you love personal growth content, you should check out Ed Mylett’s podcast . I listen to it every week and it is one of my favorites.

20. If You Feel LOST, LAZY & UNMOTIVATED In Life, WATCH THIS! | Tony Robbins Motivation

If you are someone who is constantly blaming others or your circumstances for your unhappiness, you need to listen to this video by Tony Robbins . Bad things happen to us all, it’s up to you to focus on what you can control.

Great Inspirational Speeches About Hard Work

How hard do you think you work? Could you be doing more? If there’s a little voice inside of your heart that knows you could be doing more and better, these motivational videos about the value of hard work will help you push yourself.

And a side note: your chances of having good luck increase the harder and longer you work.

21. You’re Not Tired, You’re Just Weak – David Goggins Motivation

If you’re feeling lazy or like you don’t want to do something, watch this video til 2:25 . It will give you the push you need to put your head down and do the work. It’ll remind you to keep pursuing your goals and to keep challenging yourself. Key takeaway: push yourself beyond your perceived limits.

22. Hard Work & Patience – A Gary Vaynerchuk Original Film

If you want to be motivated to work hard, listen to Gary Vaynerchuk. Gary Vaynerchuk is a creative genius known for his marketing tactics. This famous motivational speech is all about playing “the long game”, as in, working for a long time and having patience instead of working hard for a short period of time and expecting to win quickly.

23. OBSESSION – Best Motivational Speech

This is one of my favorite short motivational speeches because it makes me feel a little more normal for being “weird”. I’m the kind of person who chooses to work on the weekends instead of hanging out with people. Crazy, right? But it’s because I’m working toward a dream of mine and it’s something that’s really important to me. The most important thing to remember: it’s okay to devote yourself to something. It’s the only way to get what you want in life.

24. WORK LIKE HELL – Best Motivational Video

This is a series of motivational speeches about doing a little bit more and outworking your competition. I’m not going to lie – I’m up late writing this post and listening to this very video is what’s motivating me to keep going.

25. The video EVERY woman should watch!

Whether or not you’re a Rachel Hollis fan may be up for debate (and that’s okay!) but I happen to think she’s a great motivational speaker. This entire speech will inspire you to work hard and take massive action – today.

26. NEVER SURRENDER – Powerful Motivational Speech (by Kobe Bryant)

This one minute video by the late Kobe Bryant is one of the most famous short speeches. I read a book recently by his former personal trainer and I learned that Kobe really outworked everyone. He talks about a quote in this video that really stuck with him, and I think it’s great advice if you’re the kind of person who needs motivation to keep working hard.

Motivational Speeches About Working Smart

Have you ever heard the saying “work smarter, not harder”? That saying is all about ensuring that the work you are doing is actually efficient. Are you getting to where you want to go with all of the work that you are putting in? Are you getting closer to your goals and your dreams? Or are you sprinting like a hamster on a wheel and just running in circles?

Here are great videos on the importance of working hard but also working intentionally.

27. SET SYSTEMS RATHER THAN GOALS – Motivational Speech – James Clear

A goal gives you a sense of direction, but if you don’t spell out precisely how you are going to get to a goal, it is useless. You must develop systems. Listen to this James Clear video to gain valuable life lessons.

By the way, James Clear is an author who wrote perhaps my favorite book of all time: “Atomic Habits” . It’s life-changing if you haven’t read it yet.

28. Matthew McConaughey | 5 Minutes for the NEXT 50 Years of Your LIFE

This is one of the best motivational speeches of all time about how to live a great life for YOU. It’s filled with little pieces of wisdom that’ll really get you thinking about how you live your life and in what direction you want to go.

29. Visualization is the key – Bob Proctor

Do you believe in the Law of Attraction? If not, I have to say I’m surprised! I’ve experienced it in my own life more than once, and it is incredibly powerful. Here’s a great video that sums up the power of visualization, and if you want to learn more about the Law of Attraction or manifestation in general, read this post .

This video shows the true power of words, thoughts, and feelings that you have.

30. How to Stay Motivated – Carla Harris

Here is a YouTube short with very practical advice from Carla Harris on HOW to stay motivated. It’s all about having a vision!

This post was all about short inspirational speeches. Which one was your favorite?

16 Most Life-Changing Motivational Speeches & What You’ll Gain from Them

It’s all very well reading about ways to get ahead in life, but no account will ever reach you in quite the same way as hearing someone speak about their own experiences. While these people may be household names now, it wasn’t always that way, and this collection of some of the best motivational speeches will move you and inspire you to make your own dreams come true.

16 Most Life-Changing Motivational Speeches and What You’ll Gain From Them

From Arnold Schwarzenneger talking about how he filled every moment of every day with steps to fulfil his ambition of becoming Mr. Universe, to J.K. Rowling’s life as an impoverished single mother, these speeches will fill you with the drive and determination to reach your full potential, and not let anything stand in your way.

Some are long, and some last just a few minutes, but each one will make you want to grab life with both hands and go for what you want, whatever it is.

motivational speech about dreams

“Most people have done all that they’re ever going to do – they raise a family, they earn a living, and then they die.”

That’s what we’re supposed to do, right? Wrong! Life is made for greater things, and you are meant for greater things.

When Les Brown was a child, he was labeled ‘educable mentally retarded’, and until a chance encounter with another teacher, he believed that he would amount to nothing. But this one teacher planted the seeds in Les’ head which would blossom and grow, and eventually make him one of the best motivational speakers of all time.

This speech will give you permission to rise above other people’s opinions, to break free of their prejudices, and make a success of whatever you do. Watch ‘It’s Not Over Until You Win! Your Dream is Possible’ and take those first steps towards following your passion and making your dream come true.

“Stress doesn’t come from the facts, stress comes from the meaning that we give the facts.”

Life is about choices. Every day we’re faced with hundreds of choices, and this speech by Tony Robbins will help you see that it’s the choices, not the conditions, which shape our lives.

Take a moment during this speech to pause and reflect on some choices you have made in the past, and really think about the direction your life took because of them, both good and bad. Tony Robbins explains in his inimitable way that we have the choice to focus on what we want, and that when we focus, we can achieve whatever we want.

Part of Tony’s speech explains how, when the economy is down, some people thrive and some people crash and burn, and the COVID 19 pandemic is the perfect example. Small businesses took a huge hit, and while some of them threw up their hands in despair and said ‘that’s it, it’s over for us’, others adapted, and saw it as an opportunity to expand, diversify, and turn the situation to their advantage.

And that’s the cornerstone of this video – how we react, how we adapt, and how we choose is the difference between success and failure.

“So every rep that I do gets me closer to accomplishing the goal to make this goal – this vision – into reality.”

Be inspired by Arnold Schwarzenneger as he talks about his goal of becoming Mr. Universe. Never wasting a second of his day, Arnie worked in construction, spent 5 hours in the gym, and went to acting classes, all of which took him further along his journey to making his dream come true.

We all have a propensity to waste time, but if you have a goal, if you have a passion that smolders away, take a leaf out of Arnie’s book and make sure that everything you do propels you forward.

And don’t be afraid to fail.

“Your conviction and your convenience don’t live on the same block.”

If you are a fan of The Secret, you will be familiar with Lisa Nicholls. In this video, Lisa tells Tom Bilyeu how she was willing to leave everything and everyone behind in order to grow into the version of herself that she knew she wanted.

Lisa explains how, as a young mother, she was forced to wrap her baby in a towel for two days because she had no money for diapers, and how it was at that moment that she vowed never to be that broke or that broken again.

Change, success, drive…they’re all inconvenient and disruptive, and Lisa Nicholls demonstrates that wonderfully in this emotional and highly motivating interview in which she declares “your story is not meant to be your fortress, your story is meant to be your fuel.”

Eric Thomas had a dream, a goal, and that goal was to be the best motivational speaker in the world. He didn’t achieve this by giving 70%, or 80%…he didn’t achieve it by staying in bed late in the mornings. He achieved it by giving 100% every minute of every day.

Listen to Eric’s words, hear the passion in his voice, and feel the lessons he is giving to you if you want to be the best at whatever you do.

“If we don’t take control of our environment, it takes control of us.”

This short piece by Tony Robbins has been designed to show you that you are in control of your own environment. Whether you realize it or not, what goes on around you has a massive influence on the way you feel and the way you act.

By taking leadership of your own life, you can defy outside influences and set your own tone for the day ahead, regardless of whatever or whoever is exerting pressure from the outside.

Follow Tony’s example of taking 10 minutes for yourself at the start of every day – for gratitude, prayer or wishes for family and friends, and a recap of what you want to accomplish that day, and your day will continue on that same path of thankfulness, hope, and goals.

“Your mind doesn’t know the difference between something you vividly imagined and something that’s real, literally!”

If you want to emulate the way successful people behave, take these 10 billionaires’ habits and adopt them yourself for 21 days.

Billed by Jim Kwik as being ‘like a magic pill’, these habits will rewire your brain into thinking and behaving like some of the world’s most successful people.

In this 8 minute clip, Jim shares how, for instance, your brain reacts the same way when you imagine your dog walking in as it does when your dog actually walks in, and this can apply to anything. What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

As much as this applies to positive things, it also can be applied to negative things, so if you imagine failure, that’s what you will get. Fill your mind with thoughts of success and that’s what will happen.

None of these habits are difficult to accomplish, but in doing so you will change your entire mindset into one of a hugely successful person, no matter what you want to achieve in life.

“Don’t leave crumbs.”

If this sounds more like a housekeeping hint and less like a motivational affirmation, you’re 50% right. Our lives do need housekeeping, and not leaving crumbs – i.e. regrets – which will come back and rob your tomorrow of joy, is one of the chores you need to do on a daily basis.

Matthew McConaughey delivers a powerful speech in a gentle way at the University of Houston Commencement Address.

Discussing the five rules he lives by, he will show you how to avoid falling into a trap of entitlement, and why ‘Unbelievable’ is the stupidest word in the dictionary.

With some invaluable life lessons contained inside a highly watchable speech, Matthew McConaughey is an unlikely but very inspiring speaker who has stayed humble despite all his successes.

“There are a lot of sharks in the world; if you hope to complete the swim, you will have to deal with them. So if you want to change the world, don’t back down from the sharks.”

Spoken with eloquence and quiet assuredness, this six-minute speech draws on US Navy Admiral William McRaven’s experience of survival in the Navy Seals.

He explains how making your bed, while seemingly insignificant and even pointless, will set a series of tasks in motion which will ensure that at best, the first job of the day is done, and at worst, you have a neat, tidy bed to fall into at the end of a trying day.

The world is full of people who want to bring you down (the sharks) but if you stand your ground, they will eventually swim away, leaving you to go on to bigger and better things.

“Sometimes life’s gonna hit you in the face with a brick…don’t lose faith.”

Steve Jobs, chairman, CEO, and co-founder of Apple Inc. was hit in the face with more than one brick during his 56 years on earth. From being given up for adoption as a baby, to being fired from the very company which he founded, he never let anything get in his way.

In this commencement speech at Stamford University in 2005, Steve explained how his love for what he did spurred him on to rebuild his life in spectacular fashion.

Life dealt a further blow when, in 2003, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

This speech focuses on three stories which, when combined, show how life offers opportunities for change and growth, no matter how dire the circumstances.

Steve Jobs never graduated college, but when he died in 2011, aged just 56, he had a net worth of US$7 billion. He achieved this by doing what he loved, and in this speech he will inspire you to do the same.

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously than you might as well not have lived at all. In which case, you fail by default.”

Let J. K. Rowling inspire you with this 2008 commencement speech at Harvard University. Extolling the virtues of failure and imagination, she tells the graduates how being at rock bottom set her free to pursue her dreams of being an author.

As poor as it is possible to be without being homeless, she created the world of Harry Potter and went on to amass a fortune of £795 million, but that without her failures in life, she would never have had the opportunity to do so.

Let her words become your own mantra, and view every failure in your life as a future success.

“We shine, because baby you just can’t dim the sun.”

A beautiful antidote for anyone who has ever felt or been told that they are ‘too much’, Gina Hatzis’ winning Speaker Slam speech of 2018 will give you permission to be unashamedly you.

Although written by a woman for women, this powerful and sometimes humorous speech about being your own authentic self will inspire anyone – man or woman – to shine and never dim their own light to suit other people.

“The first step you need to take is just that…step.”

If you are in need of a short, sharp burst of motivation, listen to this speech by ex Navy Seal, Jocko Willink.

Running for less than three minutes, this recording will inspire you to take a step into whatever you want to achieve. Awarded both the Silver Star and the Bronze Star for service, Jocko Willink is no stranger to taking those brave steps, having come face to face with Iraqu insurgents in Ramadi. He will spur you on to put one metaphorical foot in front of the other, and will leave you in no doubt as to what you need to do to achieve your goals.

“On the other side of your maximum fear are all of the best things in life.”

If you like your motivation with a side order of laughter, watch Will Smith as he talks about fear. Agreeing to skydive on a night out with friends, Will realizes that he actually has to go through with it.

Discussing how fear ruins things (he couldn’t sleep or eat before the jump), Will also discloses that beyond fear was the most blissful experience of his life, and how that principle can be applied to anything in life.

“Only those that can see the invisible, can do the impossible.”

Tyrese Gibson knows success, and in this speech he talks about how it can be achieved, by anyone who wants it.

Actor, singer, author, model…Tyrese seems to have the Midas touch, but he didn’t get it by luck. Follow his words as he gently but passionately guides you along the path you need to take if you have goals and dreams in life.

“I refuse to be another man who lived and died, and wasn’t significant’”

“If it is written, so shall it be.”

When Steve Harvey’s teacher crushed his dreams of being on TV, the one person who believed in him was his father. He told him to put a piece of paper with his dreams on in his drawer, and to read it every morning and every night.

His dreams came true.

It didn’t always come easy for Steve Harvey though – he spent years living in his car when he had nowhere else to go, but the one thing he never lost was his ambition and determination to see his dreams through to fruition.

A firm believer in the Law of Attraction, Steve still has vision boards and still commits his dreams to writing, and encourages you to do the same in this speech that made Obama cry.

These motivational speeches, and many more like them, show how having guts, determination, and a vision will get you anywhere you want to go, no matter your beginnings in life. These inspirational speakers have suffered loss, sickness, and unbelievable hardships, but the one thing that got them through was their desire to win and their belief that they could.

Immerse yourself in their words of wisdom, and take that next step into your best life.

Speech about dreams and ambitions [1,2,3,5 minutes], 1 minute speech about dreams in life.

Dreams are a powerful tool that can change the world for the better. They can help us find our purpose and have a positive impact on society.

I am an advocate of dreams because they are what make life worth living. Dreams inspire people to reach for the stars and create something new. They give hope to those who have lost it, and remind us that we can always be better than we think we are.

Dreams are important to us because they keep us connected with our subconscious. They allow us to make sense of the things that are happening in our lives and give us a sense of purpose.

Dreams can help you understand what is going on in your life, whether good or bad, and provide a way to make sense of it.

People who have a clear and strong vision of what they want to achieve in life are more likely to achieve success. According to a study by the University of California, San Diego, people who have dreams are three times more likely to be successful than those who don’t.

2 Minutes Speech about Dreams

Dreams are a part of the human psyche, but they are also a form of sleep. They happen when the brain is in a state of deep sleep.

Dreams can be very vivid and detailed, but they can also be very abstract. Dreams often occur when you are sleeping and your brain is in a state of deep sleep.

Dreams are important to us because they help us see the future and give us hope. They also help us to communicate with our subconscious.

Dreams are not just a nice idea – they can actually help you achieve your goals. They provide a sense of motivation and purpose in life.

The success of many people is rooted in their dreams. They may have achieved success because they had the courage to pursue their dreams even when it seemed impossible.

Dreams are a key factor in achieving success. They help us to believe that we can achieve our goals and that we can be the person we want to be.

The idea of dreams is not new. It has been known for centuries that dreams are the gateways to the subconscious mind, which is our source of creativity, innovation and inspiration.

For some people, their dreams are a source of comfort and reassurance. For others, their dreams are a source of anxiety and fear. Depending on the person, they may or may not seek help for nightmares that they have been having for some time now.

Dreams can be a powerful motivator for success. They are the driving force behind our motivation and drive to achieve our goals. Although there are many different theories about what dreams are, psychologists agree that they are a form of internal mental activity that is not conscious or rational.

The most common theory about dreams is the “Zeigarnik effect” which states that the act of remembering a dream makes us more likely to accomplish it in reality. This means that if you want to achieve something in your life, you should write down your dreams and work towards achieving them.

Dreams are a key tool for success in the workplace, with one study finding that people who have a dream achieved more than those without one.

The article talks about how dreams can help you achieve your goals and how they can make you feel fulfilled.

Some people think that dreams are a waste of time and that they should focus on the practical things in life. However, dreams have always been a key to success because they help us to understand our true desires and what we want to achieve.

In today’s world, we live in an era where everything is possible. We can do anything we want if we put our minds to it. But it is not always easy to find out what you really want in life because your dreams might not be practical enough for the society around you.

5 Minutes Speech about Dreams

Dreams are a mystery that has fascinated people for as long as there’s been human history. They are the most common subject of discussion in psychology, philosophy, and religion.

There is no scientific evidence to support the idea that dreams have any sort of ‘meaning’ or that they can predict future events. But they still carry a lot of weight in our society and culture.

Dreams are a powerful tool for people to find their way and find meaning in life. They can be an escape from our daily routine, a reminder of what we want to do and who we want to be.

Dreams are important because they help us discover what might be possible for us, but also because they help us to feel good about ourselves. The way we think about our dreams is often the way we think about ourselves and the world around us.

Dreams can be a powerful tool for self-discovery and personal growth. However, not everyone has dreams that come true in the form of reality.

Dreams are a powerful force that lead to success and fulfillment. They are important for people to work hard to achieve their goals.

The following is a list of some of the most famous people who have achieved success with their dreams:

– Bill Gates, Microsoft co-founder

– Oprah Winfrey, talk show host and media mogul

– Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States

– Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc.

Dreams are often seen as a sign of hope and optimism. They are our way of visualizing what we want to achieve in the future. Sometimes, our dreams can be quite specific and when they come true, it is often a great feeling.

Many people have dreamt of success and it can be quite difficult for some people to achieve their goal without the help of their dreams. It is important to keep in mind that your dreams are not just your vision for the future but also something that you need to work hard for every day.

While some people might believe that they need to have a clear goal in order to achieve success, others believe that by dreaming and following their dreams, they will be able to achieve success.

Dreams are more than just a way of passing time. They are a way of traveling through life and achieving happiness. They can also lead you on the path to your career goals.

It is true that dreams can be a key to success. It is not just the dream that makes you successful, but the way you work towards achieving it.

Dreams are important to people in different ways. They provide motivation and hope for people who feel like they are stuck in their current situation and want to break free from it. Some dreams can also help people realize what they want out of life.

Dreams can be a key to success because they provide motivation and hope for those who feel stuck in their current situation, as well as helping them realize what they want out of life

10 Famous Motivational Speeches You Need to Hear

  • Carolyn Manion Kinnie
  • April 1, 2024

Table of Contents

At The Speaker Lab, we’re dedicated to helping you launch and scale your speaking business. Since we’re dedicated to helping speaking professionals succeed, it stands to reason that we have a few favorite examples of our own! Today, we want to share some of the motivational speeches that our team thinks are most worth the listen. While you can find hundreds of inspirational talks on the internet, we think there’s something really special about these ten talks. Whether you want to be a speaker yourself or just need a mood boost, each of these examples is sure to leave you ample fuel for motivation and reflection! 

Topics of the speeches we cover today range from psychology and relationships, to goal-setting and growth, to effective leadership, to personal stories that carry weighty lessons. For each speech, we’ll include some insights into what really sets these talks apart. We also highly recommend setting some time aside to give each on its own and form your own opinions! Let’s dive into some of these amazing motivational speeches so you can see (or hear!) for yourself why we love them so much. 

1. Brené Brown: The Power of Vulnerability

We’re going to start with almost a too-obvious choice. You will see Brené Brown’s name pop up on just about any  list of important motivational speeches. And with good reason! This 2011 TED talk isn’t just one of the most-watched TED talks of all time. It’s an incredible investigation into the roles that connection, shame and vulnerability play in human relationships. It’s also an eye-opening exploration into why we all tend to shrink from vulnerability and what could happen if we flipped the script. And from a purely public speaking standpoint, it’s a great display of Brown’s wit and charisma. If you struggle with vulnerability in your own life or are trying to understand why a loved one keeps shutting you out, Brown’s short but impactful talk might have some answers for you. 

We covered this motivational speech in our recent article about pathos because Brown is a master of emotional connection. She backs up her argument with ample academic research, but connects her message to real, relatable experiences throughout. As she narrates her own experiences in a therapist’s office, she invites the audience to walk through those experiences with her. Making psychological research accessible to the masses is no easy feat, but Brown manages to do it with storytelling and humor. Her greatest lesson, perhaps, comes in how vulnerability can teach how to treat ourselves kindly.

“Our job is to look and say, “You know what? You’re imperfect, and you’re wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.”

2. Simon Sinek: “How great leaders inspire action”

Simon Sinek is a world-renowned author and speaker with an incredible knack for delivering profound and easily intelligible advice on leadership, business, and success. He has written several books and delivered many motivational speeches. His TED talk “How Great Leaders Inspire Action,” which grew out of his first book, is perhaps the most well-known. Similarly to Brown’s speech, we think no list of the best motivational speeches would be complete without it. In short, it’s an analysis of how people like Steve Jobs and Martin Luther King Jr., and the Wright Brothers managed to accomplish amazing, unheard of things. Sinek theorizes that there is a unique way that great leaders communicate, and that’s how they get things done. 

If you’re a leader but don’t understand why your marketing and sales fall flat, or if you long to start a company but don’t know how to tap into what makes people excited about a business, Sinek has wisdom to share for you. His speech is for you if you’ll ever be in a leadership position or struggle to pinpoint your professional mission. And if you’re curious about why people trust certain political leaders and not others, you’ll want to listen to this speech. Sinek is a master of words and he distills a lot of fascinating information into simple stories and lessons about innovation and leadership. Give this one a listen to get fired up about what you believe and how you can make an impact with those beliefs. 

“ People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it. The goal is not to do business with everybody who needs what you have. The goal is to do business with people who believe what you believe.

3. Steve Jobs: Stanford Commencement speech  

Commencement addresses can be hit or miss. Sometimes they fill graduating seniors with energy and inspiration for the life ahead, other times they get a few laughs and more than a few yawns. Even celebrities and business leaders aren’t always up to the task of sending young adults off into the world. But in 2005 at Stanford University, Steve Jobs not only rose to the task, but outstripped expectations by delivering an iconic motivational speech that today is the most-watched commencement speech on YouTube. 

If you’ve been around The Speaker Lab for a while, you know we’re big fans of storytelling . Steve Jobs illustrates our favorite speaking strategy by structuring his remarks as three stories. The first: his experience as a college dropout and how it paved the path to his future. The second: his expulsion from Apple that allowed him to found Pixar and meet his wife, among other endeavors. And finally: his first brush with cancer and the second chance at life he was provided. While the last story rings differently in light of Jobs’s death in 2011, the wisdom he draws from the twists and turns of his life is applicable to far more than college seniors. 

The lessons of Jobs’s commencement address are myriad, and it’s a speech you’ll keep coming back to at different points in your life. Fortunately he summed them up himself:

“ Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

4. Randy Pausch: “The Last Lecture: Really Achieving your Childhood Dreams”

Randy Pausch was a pioneer in software and virtual reality development and a longtime professor at Carnegie Mellon University. In his 40s, he was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given just a few months to live. He delivered a final lecture as part of a series where academics were asked to give a talk on a topic that was deeply important to them–and he spoke about his childhood dreams.

Pausch showed his cancer scans at the start of his presentation, letting his audience sit with the reality of his terminal diagnosis. But his regular jokes (including onstage pushups) lightened the mood and allowed his audience to embark on a journey following his personal and professional ambitions. His lecture became a viral motivational speech and even landed him an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show a few weeks later.

Everybody has childhood dreams. Some people don’t accomplish them, but few forget them. Pausch’s lecture testifies to how having those big dreams can bear great fruit in your personal and professional life. He also provides great examples from his own journey of how going the extra mile–even if it seems crazy–can help you achieve those dreams. This is a long speech, but we encourage you to listen (or read ) in full because it’s so full of inspiration. But in the meantime, here are a few of our favorite lines: 

“Never lose the childlike wonder. It’s just too important. It’s what drives us.” 

“Remember, brick walls let us show our dedication. They are there to separate us from the people who don’t really want to achieve their childhood dreams. Don’t bail. The best of the gold is at the bottom of barrels of crap.”

5. Kelly McGonigal: “ How to make stress your friend “

Stress is something we all deal with, sometimes to an overwhelming degree. Many people try every possible hack to eliminate stress for their lives or live in fear of it. But what if we treated stress as something helpful–or even as a friend? What if we trusted ourselves to cope appropriately with stress rather than letting it ruin our lives? That’s what health psychologist Kelly McGonigal explores in this viral TED talk. 

Challenging the common parlance of stress as the bogeyman is no small task. McGonigal backs up her research with several studies to show that while stress can have deleterious effects on health, it doesn’t have to. She also undertakes some of our favorite tactics here at The Speaker Lab by interacting with her audience to further engage them. While a pop quiz from the stage probably wasn’t on their bingo cards, her in person audience members got a real-time taste of the “social stress test.” (To fully appreciate McGonigal’s point, we recommend pretending you’re in the auditorium with her and attempting to perform what she commands.) Then, she walks her audience through the stress reaction they just experienced and explains how, equipped with new strategies for leveraging stress, they could use that same reaction to approach the situation constructively.  

McGonigal’s research, which has also been published in book form, is not without controversy in the psychology space. But in an ever increasingly stressed out society, her talk could be the motivational speech you need to tackle your stressors head-on. The best part? Turning to the communities around you during stressful events can help you rather than drain you! As McGonigal says:

“People who spent time caring for others showed absolutely no stress-related increase in dying. Zero. Caring created resilience.”

6. Carol Dweck: “The power of believing that you can improve ” 

You’ve probably heard the term “growth mindset” thrown around in the professional and educational space. But do you know who coined it? Carol Dweck is a Stanford psychologist who researches the impact of mindset on how we approach failure and success. She has studied how believing in one’s ability to learn and improve can radically affect our reaction to challenges. Her research claims that by focusing on effort and strategy, we can help students expand their minds and overcome barriers by having a “growth mindset” rather than a “fixed mindset.” 

While her research focuses on students, her TED talk discusses principles with universal application, such as the profound impact of believing we can change for the better. She also explores ideas for constructive communication with the next generation to set them up for success. Do you feel limited by externally applied standards? Have you been put in a box your whole life that you struggle to break out of? Do you throw in the towel easily because you feel that you just can’t win? Dweck’s motivational speech might give you more confidence in your abilities. Our favorite line?

“…praising the process that kids engage in, their effort, their strategies, their focus, their perseverance, their improvement. This process praise creates kids who are hardy and resilient.”

7. Malala Yousafzai: “16th birthday speech at the United Nations”  

Malala Yousafzai is the world’s youngest Nobel laureate and one of the best known human rights advocates of her generation. Her speech before the U.N. in 2014 is a passionate appeal for setting worldwide injustices right. From her harrowing story of being shot in the head, to her advancement of nonviolence, this motivational speech is a moving reminder of how much work each and every one of us can do to lift the burden of the oppressed. 

Though her audience at the time of the speech was a group of world leaders, we can all learn a lot from Malala that applies to our own lives. In addition to her stirring personal story, she lays out a variety of action items that we can all undertake in our communities to lay a foundation for justice. Furthermore, she emphasizes how education and tolerance rather than violence and politics can help win the fight against terrorism. If you ever feel at a loss for what you can do to change the word, Malala is the motivator you need. This speech is also a great model for using your personal story and character or ethos to persuade your audience, which we cover here .

“Dear sisters and brothers, we realise the importance of light when we see darkness. We realise the importance of our voice when we are silenced.”

“One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world.”

8. Joel Osteen: “The power of I am”

Oprah described this sermon by pastor Joel Osteen as life-changing, and you might find it so too! Osteen is a clergyman, but many of his sermons are functionally motivational speeches that can inspire your life regardless of whether you’re religious or not. “The Power of I Am” is about how excessive negativity can control our lives. Osteen argues that when we say “I am ______,” we’re inviting whatever that is into our lives. If we repeatedly say “I am” statements followed by something negative or something we hate about ourselves, we are just digging ourselves deeper into that hole. 

Osteen’s words are badly needed in a world where the internet encourages negative comparison and loneliness is epidemic. He uses examples from Scripture and from his own life to show how talking yourself down becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. This is something we all experience at some point! You mess up, say “I’m an idiot,” and for the rest of the day your idiocy, clumsiness, or incompetence suddenly seems like the most noticeable thing about you. Or maybe an authority figure once identified you with your failures and you internalized it for years and years. Osteen’s sermon is an amazing call to do better. We can carry ourselves with confidence, not pride, and disconnect our flaws from our sense of self. 

“My encouragement is never say negative things about yourself. Most of us would never go up to another person, at least to their face and criticize them yet we have no problems criticizing ourselves. “I am so slow. I am so unattractive. I am so undisciplined”. That is cursing your future. Do yourself a favor and zip that up. We have enough in life against us already. Don’t be against yourself.”

9. Nicole Walters: “Why Excuses Are the #1 Thing Keeping You From Your Goals”  

Nicole Walters is an incredible entrepreneur and businesswoman who quit her successful corporate career to start her own company when she realized her blog was generating her significant passive income. This keynote from a conference for online creators outlines how she managed to do it all…with blood, sweat, tears, and no excuses! 

While Nicole dishes out amazing strategies for building your business and avoiding excuses, this is also an incredible example of how to give a great motivational speech. Our founder Grant Baldwin even did an analysis of her professional speaking performance here . Nicole uses humor, storytelling, and credible examples from her career to show how to avoid excuses and maintain sustainable innovation as you build your personal brand. If you want to start a business or expand your content creation but struggle with ambition and motivation, Nicole is your girl.

Get ready for some hard truths and a lot of humility, because it’s not easy! You can hear even more of her tips on our podcast here . She also came on our podcast for a conversation about race in the speaking industry , sharing her experience as a black woman who speaks professionally. This is a must listen if you’re interested in DEI and how the speaking industry can improve its diversity and inclusivity. 

Nicole is an abundant source of amazing one-liners and truth bombs. Here are two of our favorites to finish off: 

“Excuses are tools of incompetence. Those who specialize in them, are seldom good at anything else.”

“You’re not Kim Kardashian.” 

“Automate systems, not relationships.”

10. William Faulkner: Banquet Speech  

For our final must-listen motivational speech, we’re heading back in time. William Faulkner delivered this speech when he received the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature. The threat of nuclear war hung heavy at the time Faulkner received the award. Faulkner himself eschewed the acclaim and reward that his talent deserved. His speech is a testament to the immortality of art and literature. His words elegantly express how art and literature can help humanity survive beyond dark times. 

Especially in an age of AI, media cycles, and overwhelming access to information, a reminder of the power and importance of art is badly needed. Faulkner’s speech is short, but it’s extremely moving. Every sentence drips with the weight of writers and artists who went before him, carrying humanity through crises and catastrophes and helping rebuild and process their wake. Faulkner himself says it best: 

“I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet’s, the writer’s, duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet’s voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail.”

Mastering how to deliver a great motivational speech is no easy task. We think these paragons of motivational speaking deserve special attention for their mastery and inspiration! And having a solid list of inspirational content to fall back on when you’re feeling down, bewildered, or uninspired is always a good idea.  If you want to become a motivational speaker yourself , taking inspiration from these great talks will help you find your own voice in the speaking industry. ( We can help too! )

Denzel Washington: Commit To Your Dreams, and Never Give Up

Denzel washington - keep working.

Denzel Washington gives a passionate speech about the importance of committing to your dreams, and of never letting hardships stop you from pursuing your goals.


"It's not easy. If it was easy, there'd be no Kerry Washington. If it was easy, there'd be no Taraji Henson. If it were easy, there'd be no Octavia Spencer. But not only that, it if were easy, there'd be no Viola Davis. If it were easy, there'd be no Mykelti Williamson, no Stephen McKinley Henderson, no Russell Hornsby. If it were easy, there'd be no Denzel Washington.

"Keep working. Keep striving. Never give up. Fall down seven times, get up eight. Without commitment, you'll never start. But more importantly, without consistency, you'll never finish. Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship. Ease is a greater threat to progress than hardship, so keep moving, keep growing, keep learning. See you at work."

Pregnant Woman Goes Into Labor and Delivers Her Baby Herself

Giving birth can be a scary experience, especially when things don’t go as planned. Usually though, moms-to-be know they’re in the hands of a professional, which can make the process more reassuring. That was not the case for this mother when she went into emergency labor, but fortunately, someone unexpectedly stepped in to help.

A Scary Labor

See on Instagram

A woman named Andrenna was pregnant with her second child when she went into labor. She went to the hospital, but they sent her home and said she wasn’t quite ready to deliver. The next day, her husband was at work when the contractions began coming faster and harder.

Andrenna thought she had enough time to drop her one-year-old son off at his grandparents and get to the hospital. However, at the Pennsylvania Turnpike, right before her exit, she knew she wasn’t going to make it. The 32-year-old pulled over to the side of the road and called 9-1-1.

“’Put your seat back,’ that was the last thing I heard,” Andrenna recalled to 6abc Philadelphia . Seconds later, she became her own midwife and delivered a 7-pound, 10-ounce son named Santana Reid.

Unexpected Help

Andrenna was recovering and trying to figure out her next move when she suddenly heard a knock on the car window. A tow truck driver was standing there.

“Do you need help with anything? Is everything ok?” Adrenna recalled him asking. When she revealed she had just delivered a baby, he was surprised. Still, he got on his phone and called for help with the location. Soon, emergency services arrived to take care of the family .

The mom told the news outlet that she wished she knew the name of the man who helped her, and she expressed her gratitude for his assistance that day.

“Andrenna described the surprise delivery as ‘very surreal’ but says she is relieved that everything went so smoothly,” the hospital later wrote on Instagram. “She is thankful for the care she received.”

Spreading Kindness

Andrenna’s story could have been much scarier, but her happy ending is, in part, thanks to the kindness of a stranger. Because that tow truck driver took a few moments out of his day to check on the woman in the car, she got the post-natal care she needed, and doctors promptly checked her baby.

It’s an uplifting story that also encourages us to lead with kindness in our own lives, especially when we see a situation that may require our help. If you see someone who could use a hand, whether carrying a large load, struggling with a door, or stranded on the side of the road, there are ways to help.

It’s all about keeping our eyes out and taking a few seconds out of our days to offer that kindness. Kindness keeps the world going, and we can never have too much of it.

Young Girl Brings Baby Sister To Class As Their Mom Was Busy

Anyone who is a firstborn knows it comes with a lot of added responsibility. The line between parents and the eldest can be a bit fuzzy, with the oldest sibling often having to take on more than their lion's share of looking after their younger siblings.

For one 10-year-old in Thailand, she took the responsibility of big sis to a whole other level.

Instead of missing out on school to babysit her younger sibling while her mom had "business," she decided to pull double duty, bringing the one-year-old with her.

She just became a viral internet sensation.

10-Year-Old Big Sister Taking Care of Her Baby Sister in School Goes Viral

@yingggzz ไม่รู้คนเป็นครูเเบบเราจะรู้สึกยังไง เเต่สิ่งเดียวบอกกับเด็กเสมอว่า ไม่ว่ายังไงอย่าขาดเรียนนะลูก เเม่ไม่ว่างเอาน้องมาเรียนด้วยเลย เเล้วทำจริ้งงงง55555 ดีนะน้องไม่ดื้อ😆#นักเรียน #เลี้ยงน้อง #ปราจีนบุรี #ขึ้นฟีด

In an 18-second clip that has gone viral on TikTok, the student, nicknamed "Green" is sitting at her desk, diligently writing in her exercise book. It's a normal, everyday occurrence in a classroom. What isn't normal is that she is simultaneously cradling and bottle-feeding her baby sister.

Not only is the young girl completely focused on her studies, but she's also managing to look after a one-year-old in peak multi-tasking mode — which, let's face it, isn't necessarily an easy feat even for adults.

As for her sibling, she's calmly drinking her milk and at one point playfully pokes her unfazed older sister’s cheek.

According to Thai PBS World , the user who uploaded the video, @Yingggzz, is a teacher at the Ban Klong Kaem Cham School in Prachin Buri, a province in central Thailand. "Green" is her student.

"She is the eldest. Her mother had business, so she had to take her younger sibling to study with her. This is better than having to miss school to look after your sister, right?’

According to the caption, Yingz is more than supportive of "Green" bringing her baby sibling to class, writing, "I'm not sure how other teachers would feel, but I always tell my students not to miss class...and she is really doing it!"

She ends it with a quip "Good thing her sister isn't naughty" and the hashtags: #students #raisingyoungersiblings.

Reaction to the Viral Video

The video quickly garnered widespread attention, going viral with over 3 million views. While some people objected to the parentification of a child, the majority of commenters praised both the girl, for not letting anything get in the way of school and the teacher, for encouraging her to attend school despite her challenging circumstances.

"😲😲😲😲 she's such a devoted student."

"This is so sweet and awesome."

"She is very tough, writing with one hand and holding her sister in the other."

"This girl will grow up strong and successful. 😄Anyone who can care for others at such a young age is destined for greatness and will be blessed forever! Best Wishes from 🇸🇬"

"Thank you to the school, teacher, for being kind to the children."

"There's nothing the eldest can't do, especially the oldest sister."

And oldest sisters everywhere are nodding their heads in agreement. Big time. Because this is so true...and even science agrees.

Eldest Daughter Syndrome is Real

@katimorton The 8 signs you have eldest daughter syndrome… #eldestdaughter #siblings #siblingcheck

Eldest daughter syndrome may not be an official diagnosis but it doesn't make it any less real. It's defined as the heavy emotional burden and responsibility first-born girls often face, including acting as "bonus parents."

And while there are benefits, such as being most likely to succeed out of any sibling type and most likely to hold leadership roles, it also brings with it a fair share of baggage — excessive worrying, anxiety, people-pleasing tendencies, and guilt (just to name a few).

The fact that a 10-year-old, still a child herself, has the maturity to shoulder the responsibility of her baby sibling AND focus on her studies is truly admirable. But it just goes to prove the incredible resilience and capability of firstborns.

And while the video celebrates the strength and competence of eldest daughters (because they really are warriors) it also sheds light on the importance of community support systems in nurturing and assisting families in times of need.

funny motivational speaker never give up

When you show courage in the face of adversity, you change your life and others.

The most provocative motivational speeches in the world won't settle for average and have triumphed through adversity. We are most inspired by people who have experienced difficulty and never give up. 

JOIN THE MOVEMENT Subscribe to  Climb Outside Yourself

Luck is great, but life is meant to be experienced. Sometimes the only way out of stress is through it; face struggle to overcome challenges in life. Many times battle happens to help teach us a lesson. We can either learn from that lesson or deny it. 

From an   evolutionary perspective ,   the human mind's primary goal is to keep you safe. Sometimes this leads to self-sabotage as it's just easier to stay in your comfort zone and avoid risk. However, great things never come from mediocrity. Quit settling for average and strive for   extraordinary .

Below are words I've written down inspired by powerful survivors. As a motivational keynote speaker , I meet many people who have survived and thrived in misfortune.

The following is a starting point for a motivational speech to find strength in stress, conquer fear and live your dreams.

Motivational Speech Template, Never Give up on Your Dreams

Boldly go in the direction of your dreams.

Try, try, try and try again. Feed your mind ideas of success, not  failure .

Remember, the only way you can fail is if you give up. Every time you fail, you come one step closer to success.

You are not scared; you are courageous. You are not weak; you are powerful. You are not ordinary; you are remarkable.

Do not back down, do not give up.

When you look back on your life, don't have regrets. Believe in yourself,   belief   in your future, you will find your way.

A fire burning inside you is mighty; it is waiting to burn bright. You are meant to do great things.

Following your dreams can be both terrifying and exciting. 

Courage is facing fear. Fear of failure holds most people back. You are not most people. 

Persist and persuade others about your plans, as they are real. Nobody can do this but you. Nobody will get in the way of our dreams.

Most people master the obvious; you create something that wasn't there before. It's bold, it's beautiful, and it's you.

Give it your best, and your dreams will come to life. Success is yours.

Go for your dreams; it is your turn.


The best motivational speech is personalised; take these words and alter them for your audience. Most people thrive on inspiration, and we don't get enough. It's the repetition of words that foster action and purpose.

Speech about Dreams for Students and Children

3 minutes speech about dreams.

Good morning one and all present here. I am standing before you all to share my thoughts through my speech about dreams. Dreams are the beautiful imaginations that one takes on to escape from the ruthless reality. Sometimes people incline to dream and live a fictional life. This may be to ignore the struggles and difficulties that they have to come across in life. There are other kinds of dreams that do not let the person sleep until they achieve it. Dreams give meaning to our life. It prepares a person to set goals and then achieves them. These kinds of dreams are very important to achieve success and fame.

Speech about dreams


The science behind Dreaming

Dreaming is a kind of mental activity, which is different from waking thought that happens during sleep. Many clinical studies have characterized the nature of dream activity. These studies have shown that dreams are more perceptual than conceptual. Things are seen and heard rather than thought.

In terms of the senses, the visual experience is present in all dreams. Auditory experience is present in 40 to 50 percent. Touch, taste, smell, and pain have a relatively small percentage. A considerable amount of emotion is generally present. Most dreams are in the type of interrupted stories, made up partly of memories,

Dream big step towards Success

Most people blame their life is not great enough and interesting enough too. Everyone thinks that they want to achieve something big, but most of them have never devoted the time to think about what it can be for them.

Most people satisfy themselves to be average, as they don’t want to surrender on the security of the known world to chase what truly sets their soul on fire. We must have the resolution for dreaming big, but also we should have the intelligence to plan. Thus we need to have the willpower to work for your dream.

This is a fact that the path which leads to our dream is never an easy one. Often the only person in the world who will see our vision is only we. This is the path that will lead us through the darkest corners and links inside our hearts and soul. We may freeze with fear. We might want to give up because it will often feel like a never-ending battle.

Turning dreams into Reality

Before leaving our dreams, don’t overlook that the people who change the world are not the ones who never felt fearful. But what makes them different is that they choose to be stronger than their fear.

One has to understand that greatness is not achieved without failure. As dreams don’t turn into reality without encountering a dozen failures on the way. But only the one who has a dream and who wants it so bad that he can leave everything to have it. It can be the one who finally makes sure that all his dreams came true!

Finally, in the end, I will say that a person without dreams is similar to a bird without wings. Life is a sequence of challenges. We can either give up ourselves as losers or keep hoping. The day will come when we will overcome all obstacles. Dreams have to be converted into action and that calls for hours of sweat as well as blood too. So, never fear to dream.

motivational speeches

Whether you’re looking to increase team productivity or turn your daydreams into a reality, motivation is key. But, in the day-to-day of working life, it’s easy to lose sight of end goals and become distracted. Thankfully, the wise words of entrepreneurs, writers, and fictional characters can offer a reinvigorating perspective. The following motivational speeches may give you the push you need to reach your full potential.

1. Steve Jobs: How to Live Before You Die (2005)

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

In this commencement address, the CEO and co-founder of Apple Inc. shared one of the keys to his success: love. His love for the work he did kept him excited about going to work every day and working toward new goals. Often, there is a big difference between what you want versus what other people want for you . Discovering what you’re passionate about, and working toward it with achievable goals , will lead you to success and satisfaction. This is why it is our staff’s number one pick for motivational speeches that will inspire you to take action today. 

2. Ellie (Jodie Foster) Meets An Alien In  Contact  (1997)

“You’re an interesting species, an interesting mix. You are capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone. Only you’re not. See, in all our searching, the only thing that we’ve found that makes the emptiness bearable… is each other.”

While this Sci-Fi classic might seem removed from reality, it offers uplifting advice for the workplace and beyond. In this scene, Ellie finally makes contact with an alien who offers insight into the human condition and the larger universe. To apply the alien’s words to the workplace, think of the power of teamwork. Establishing a diverse and talented team can improve employee happiness and performance. For example, burnout is a common problem at companies. Sharing the workload,  and knowing you can rely on team members and managers for support, can re-motivate employees. When the going gets tough, it’s a comfort to know you’re not alone. 

3. Timo’s (Rick Gonzales) Answer In Coach Carter (2005)

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

In this scene, Timo, a member of the basketball team central to the movie, responds to the question the coach asks throughout the movie: “What is your greatest fear?” Timo’s words touch on the importance of self-efficacy. By believing in yourself, you can deepen your interest and commitment to a given task, and recover faster from setbacks . If you lead a team or company, others will soon be influenced by your can-do attitude. So, stop fearing your own power and shine.

4. Chris (Will Smith) Gives His Son Advice In the Pursuit of Happyness (2006)

“Don’t ever let someone tell you, you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.”

In a world full of naysayers, it’s easy to become discouraged. In this scene from the heart-warming film, Chris offers his son priceless advice: to pursue his dreams mercilessly, without letting other peoples’ ideas of him get in the way. While this motivational speech is noble and beautiful, you might find it challenging to apply to your own life. Here’s where building a strategic plan — with short- and long-term goals— can make pursuing your dreams concrete. With a clear and concise vision for the future, you can put these words into action.

5. Rosalinde Torres: What it Takes to be a Great Leader

“So what makes a great leader in the 21st century? I’ve met many, and they stand out. They are women and men who are preparing themselves not for the comfortable predictability of yesterday but also for the realities of today and all of those unknown possibilities of tomorrow.”

Rosalinde Torres asserts that exceptional leaders are attuned to the world around them. They pay attention to the latest trends in their field and aren’t afraid to abandon tried and true practices for ones that are the future. Basically, she’s advising the opposite of that popular saying, “Keep your head down.” Because, if you do that, you’ll end up reacting to the future instead of making it. Further, you won’t benefit from a broadened perspective that includes different cultures, industries, and readings. Ask yourself, “When is the last time I looked around me and toward the future?” This is the start of great leadership.

6. John Keating’s (Robin Williams) Motivational Speech About Seizing the Day From Dead Poets Society (1989)

​​” Because you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? – – Carpe – – hear it? – – Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.”

John Keating motivates his students with a simple sentiment— seize the day. It might seem like a cliché, but it’s a useful sentiment for those stuck in careers they don’t like or struggling to achieve their next milestone. Most working people will spend around 8 hours a day at the office; that’s a lot of time to spend on something you dislike. So, if you’re feeling uninspired or sick of your career, take Mr. Keating’s advice and don’t waste any more time. What are your strengths and weaknesses and how can your harness them into a fulfilling career?

7. Jim Carrey: Commencement Motivational Speech at Maharishi University of Management (2014)

“When I was about 28, after a decade as a professional comedian, I realized one night in LA that the purpose of my life had always been to free people from concern, just like my dad. And when I realized this, I dubbed my new devotion the Church of Freedom From Concern, the Church of FFC. And I dedicated myself to that ministry. What’s yours? How will you serve the world? What did they need that your talent can provide? That’s all you have to figure out.”

The comedian’s advice for a successful and rewarding life is simple: find how you want to serve the world, and pursue it. While it may take years of exploring to find your talent, sometimes it can be as simple as stepping back and reflecting on those moments when you felt yourself excelling and having an impact on others. Finding your calling might seem overwhelming, but asking yourself what the world needs that you can provide will surely set things in motion. 

8. Rocky’s (Sylvester Stallone) Motivational Speech to His Son In Rocky Balboa  (2006)

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

Rocky’s motivational speech is all about not letting failure define you. This is good advice, no matter your industry. In 2019, 90% of startups failed . But, many successful business people, including Bill Gates and Walt Disney, failed before they succeeded. So, even if the odds are against your, it doesn’t helo to fixate on the negative. In fact, a positive attitude can improve mental and physical health , which will improve your performance in the workplace.

9. Dan Pink: The Puzzle of Motivation (2009)

“There is a mismatch between what science knows and what business does. Here is what science knows. One: Those 20th century rewards, those motivators we think are a natural part of business, do work, but only in a surprisingly narrow band of circumstances. Two: Those if-then rewards often destroy creativity. Three: The secret to high performance isn’t rewards and punishments, but that unseen intrinsic drive– the drive to do things for their own sake. The drive to do things cause they matter.”

There is an outdated belief that rewards and punishments are vital to improving employee performance. Pink argues that intrinsic drive— doing things because of internal satisfaction as opposed to external factors—is the real secret to high performance. So, whether you’re a manager or a new employee, consider why your work matters. Aside from your salary, what gets you to work every day? If these questions are hard to answer, you might need to incorporate or seek out a more creative approach. Pink gives the example of companies giving employees flexible schedules, where they can use their time as they want to accomplish set tasks. The schedule allows for more creativity and independence, and thus improves employee performance.

10. Coach Tony D’Amato’s (Al Pacino) Motivational Speech In Any Given Sunday (1999)

“I’ll tell you this, in any fight it’s the guy whose willing to die whose gonna win that inch. And I know, if I’m gonna have any life anymore it’s because I’m still willing to fight and die for that inch, because that’s what living is, the six inches in front of your face. Now I can’t make you do it. You’ve got to look at the guy next to you, look into his eyes. Now I think you going to see a guy who will go that inch with you. Your gonna see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows when it comes down to it your gonna do the same for him.”

This emotional scene drives home an important point: There is no “i” in team. Both entrepreneurs and executives who work their way up the corporate ladder know that they won’t achieve success all on their own. Attracting and retaining exceptional team members is the foundation of any lasting business. So, think about the skills you’re looking for in an employee and implement a process that’ll allow you to root out those people who will go the extra inch for you. If you’re not in a leadership position, think about the skills that will make you an invaluable hire. 

The Bottom Line on Motivational Speeches

No matter what industry you’re in, you can harness the wisdom of real and fictional characters to achieve your wildest dreams. So, get out there, explore your interests, make connections, and create a fulfilling career.

Introducing Speaker: Ladies and gentlemen it is with great honor that we present to you, Les Brown.

Les Brown – Author, speaker

What I like me to do right now, I want you to think about your dream, because I’m in a room full of dreamers. Think about your dream right now, what you think about it and envision it.

Now ladies and gentlemen let me share something with you. I do not believe that any of us have dreams that were not given to us for the purpose of accomplishing those particular dreams. And I want to share something with you that has changed my life.

I started out, as was indicated by Jack, it’s very humble beginnings. I don’t know what that dream is that you have. I don’t care how far-fetched it might appear to be. I don’t care how disappointing it might have been as you’ve been working toward that dream. But here’s what I know that, that dream that you’re holding in your mind, that it’s possible. Let’s say that together. Please say it’s possible.

Speech on Dreams

Dreams can be a fascinating topic, don’t you think? They’re like movies that play in your mind while you sleep.

Some dreams are fun and exciting, others can be strange or even scary. But have you ever wondered why we dream? Let’s explore this together.

1-minute Speech on Dreams

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Every individual dreams, each dream as unique as the person who dreams it. Some might dream of becoming successful entrepreneurs, while others may dream of making a difference in the world. Dreams are the seeds from which the tree of accomplishment grows. They give us a sense of purpose, a direction to our actions, and a measure of our success.

However, dreaming alone is not enough. It must be accompanied by determination, dedication, and hard work. As the saying goes, “A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.” Dreams give us a destination, but it is our relentless effort and unwavering belief that pave the path to reach there.

2-minute Speech on Dreams

I stand before you today to speak on a topic that resides in every beating heart and every resting mind – ‘Dreams’. Dreams, as we all know, are those vivid images and stories that our mind creates while we sleep. However, dreams are not confined to our sleep; they are the visions and aspirations we carry in our hearts. They are the essence of our ambition and the propellers of our actions.

History is flooded with instances of individuals who dared to dream and had the courage to turn those dreams into reality. Think of Thomas Edison, who despite innumerable failures, never gave up on his dream of creating the electric bulb. Or Martin Luther King Jr., who dreamt of a world where people were not judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. These individuals show that the power of dreams, coupled with unwavering determination, can bring about significant changes in the world.

Dreams are not only personal; they can be collective as well. Dreams of peace, equality, and freedom are shared by communities and nations. These shared dreams bring people together, inspire them to work towards a common goal, and create a bond that transcends geographical boundaries and cultural differences.

Remember, a dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work. As Walt Disney once said, “If you can dream it, you can do it”. So, dream on, dear friends, because the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Don’t be afraid to put in the effort, because greatness rarely comes easy. 3. Fall Forward: Failure is inevitable, but it doesn’t have to stop you.

  • Speech on Dreams


An Introduction

When one Sleeps, some people more than others are more likely than others to dream, with closed eyes they view different ideas and images.  These Dreams can also be manifested as sensations and varying emotions. Dreams are not bound by anything, it can be opposite from the life one leads. One cannot control it, Dreams occur involuntarily. And no one has yet deciphered the scientific meaning and reasons for its occurrence. In this article, we will explore different ways to present the speech and learn how to start a speech about Dreams. It can be both a long and short speech about Dreams.

Long and Short Speech About Dreams

Long speech on dreams.

This form of speech about Dreams is helpful for students in grades 8-12 wherein they can speak in detail and present in an understandable format.

Good Morning everyone, respected teachers and my dear friends, I am here today to speak about a rather interesting topic that is Dreams. First, let me start by asking everyone, how many of you had a dream last night. Do you remember what you dreamt of? If you do remember, were you surprised about what the dream was? 

There is no need to be shocked or surprised because Dreams do not align with the reality of the lives one leads. They can be very peculiar and it is because Dreams are often the suppressed thoughts and feelings of our subconscious mind. And such Dreams are more of an escape from reality, where we want to get to live a life away from the problems we are facing now and get rid of the struggles. 

The world of Dreams is the uncharted territory of wild imagination and wishful thinking. And even scientists believe that Dreams occur during REM (rapid-eye movement) Sleep. Dreams carry with them a lot of emotion that can make it difficult to tell them apart from reality. That is why when one Dreams of something horrific or frightening they tend to breathe rapidly and wake up perspiring and with clammy hands. REM Sleep should be uninterrupted as an intervention may lead to health concerns related to memory consolidation, making it difficult to learn and retain information. Babies or infants have very high learning abilities and one of the main reasons is the deep REM Sleep cycle without interruption.  

The dream can be a short one of mere seconds or a few minutes or even a long 20-30 minute one. When one wakes up during their REM Sleep they are more likely to remember the dream. 

There are some Dreams that one sees with their eyes open when they go about their lives every day. Dreams that can be considered relatively realistic, that one intends to achieve. They can be called goals, ambitions or just Dreams. These kinds of Dreams can fuel us and inculcate a drive to make strides in achieving the same. 

However, there are very few who make their Dreams come true, through an uncanny combination of determination, hard work and willpower. Many fall prey to their self-created victim narrative and don’t dream of a better life. They find an excuse and become lazy without trying to achieve and chase their Dreams. So in the name of safety and security, they don’t take the risks. 

The world would be so different if people didn’t dream big and take chances. The world we live in today with comfortable luxuries is a reality because somebody dreamt big and worked to make it a reality. We live in their work of inventions long after they are gone. So to make a difference, on an individual level or for the sake of society do not fret failures. To err is human and failures are part of everyone’s journey, you will only learn what not to do. Failure teaches us more than success. So, dream big, be brave and take chances. 

Short Speech on Dreams

This form of a short format of speech about Dreams can be helpful for students in grades 4-7 as they are only starting to understand and this simple and short speech will aid it. 

Good morning everyone, the respected Principal, teachers and my dear friends! I Abc (mention your name) are here to present about one of the yet undeciphered topics that are Dreams. Ever since we were kids we are always asked about our Dreams, what do you dream of becoming when you grow up? Arguably Dreams are not just the ones we see when we Sleep at night, but also the ones we see in the broad daylight. These Dreams can be different or the same, but one thing is certain: everybody has Dreams.

Dreams give us a glint of shimmer and hope of becoming someone we wish to be. It is like an energy drink for our goals and ambitions. No matter what those Dreams are, it is worth working towards it. It is obvious that some of our Dreams are different from what this society might deem as a problem or trivial. 

We should have a single-minded focus and work towards it and prove to ourselves more than others that our Dreams do make a difference. 

Achieving your Dreams is not a cakewalk, it takes a lot of will power and patience. You have to make it work for yourself, don’t feel lesser than if anyone is disappointed in you for trying to achieve your Dreams. Believe in yourself, everything is possible, with proper planning and strategizing. One needs to be committed while executing the plan. And stay true to your path without losing focus so you can live the dream. The world is an endless realm of possibilities and Dreams are just the beginning of a beautiful life ahead.

10 Lines Speech on Dreams

This is a short speech helpful for students in grades 1-3 as one can convey in simple sentences.

Involuntary actions of our imagination and overthinking manifests as Dreams.

It can seem very real as Dreams also carry sensations and emotions.

There can be 2 ways one knows and understands Dreams.

One is when they dream while aSleep and other times when they are wide awake and have Dreams.

Not everyone remembers their Dreams which they see when Sleeping.

Dreams can also be categorized as goals one set and want to work for achieving them.

It is ignorant to say that you can achieve anything and everything just by dreaming.

To make Dreams come true requires daily practice, dedication and perseverance. 

Like if you dream to be a soccer player, you have to practice daily and know the rules of the game. And if you dream to be a writer, you have to keep at it in proper form as a daily routine or habit.

Everything requires work, Dreams can make the hard journey beautiful as one has hope.  

An Example of a Speech on Dreams 

Good Morning to everyone present here today on this very fine day.

I hope you all have had a nice long holiday with your loved ones or yourself. 

Dreams. We all have Dreams, either when we are a Sleep or when we are away, which is called daydreaming or the Dreams about things that we are passionate about in life. 

As we all know, Dreams are an integral part of everyone's life. Because life is meaningless without Dreams. Our lives will be like a lost ship in the sea sailing with no direction and purpose. I don't think anyone wants to see themselves in such a situation. Without Dreams, life is like chasing an invisible shadow that has no substance or meaning.  Even those who succeeded in life had to chase the Dreams that made them like today. Interestingly, such people do not give up their Dreams and set new standards in life one after another in order to reach the pinnacle of success. If we have no Dreams and nothing to work on, life will certainly be purposeless and monotonous. We lose interest in life and soon begin to hate it. 

Now, when I'm talking about the important role that Dreams play in our lives, it can be difficult to summarize it in one word. However, a person without a dream resembles a bird without wings, so it can be said that he cannot fly. We often see people who criticize others as daydreamers. But is it possible to imagine this world in an advanced state when people dream and do not dare to make it happen? 

Life undoubtedly presents challenges in pursuing our Dreams, but in this situation, one gives up or continues to work towards them despite obstacles. It's not easy, but it's certainly not impossible. When you dream, you have to put it into action, sweat and blood.

Many failures can occur while we are working on our Dreams, but these failures do not prevent us from going the way, but ours that we can achieve what we want. It should strengthen your beliefs and beliefs. Dreams are a constant driving force and give meaning to life. Still, I would like to mention that we also need to have a positive outlook on life and be always ready to stay one step ahead in order to realize our Dreams. 

Opportunities do not always knock at our doorsteps daily. We tend to miss many opportunities in life just because we don't have the courage to do things. Every time you leave things for tomorrow and say you will start over from tomorrow, that day will never come, which is why you need to start now. It's so important at first that you can start with at least a few small steps. Japanese people know this secret. Because they take on their normal work and achieve their goals at any cost. If you want to learn harmonium, guitar, and dance, start learning right away, without waiting for tomorrow. No one knows if tomorrow will come! Once you start taking a small step, one day you are sure to find your way. 

I sincerely believe that all of us will never give up on our Dreams and will continue to work persistently to make our Dreams come true. All you need to do is dare to dream and put it into action. 

Thank you all for listening and being patient.
