In this post, I'm going to share with you my favorite motivational channel on YouTube and why I listen to these videos every single day.
One of the hardest things with an online business is actually staying motivated to work hard enough to reach your online business goals. Online business is a lonely life. Entrepreneur life is a lonely life. It can be very depressing and very discouraging at times. When you're building an online business, you're going to need consistency and patience. And often times, we run out of patience and we lack consistency. And this causes us to become unmotivated to work on our online business.
If you're like me and you're side-hustling with an online business, meaning that you have a day job and you have to spend early morning hours or late evening hours working on your online business, it's going to be difficult. You're going to come home from work tired. Maybe you wanted to sit on the couch and watch NetFlix instead of working on your business. You're gonna be tired in the morning. Maybe you don't want to wake up at six am to edit videos or work on your blog before going to your day job.
So for me, something that has helped me extremely to stay focused, motivated and patient to reach my online business goals, is by watching motivational videos. Now, there is a very, very big key here to success when it comes to watching motivational videos. Because I'll tell you, the lifespan of a motivational video is very, very short. Meaning, if you watch a motivational video and get super pumped up and super jazzed, ready to go, ready to rock and roll, that motivation is going to leave you very, very quickly. It only lasts for a short period of time. And I'd even argue to say that if you go to a live motivational speaking event, and you hear someone speaking up on stage, that might last a little bit longer than watching a motivational video. But you'll realize that even the next day, you'll lack the motivation that you had when you were attending the event or watching the video.
So let me show you guys my favorite motivational channel on YouTube that I watch every single day.
Ben Lionel Scott is one of my favorite motivational channels because he takes clips from a lot of motivational speakers out there on the internet today and condenses them into very consumable pieces of content. There's a lot of motivational videos you'll find on YouTube that is like half an hour long or an hour long and a lot of us don't have time to consume that type of content.
So what I love about his videos is here, you'll notice that many of them are right around three minutes long. So you'll see here, three minutes. Most of his videos are three minutes long so it's very easy to consume them while you're taking a shower, brushing your teeth, getting dressed in the morning, eating breakfast, or driving somewhere in the car.
The other thing that I like about his videos is that he adds some epic background music to it. I don't know about you but there's something about like a really epic cinema score that just gets you pumped. So when you combine the music that he uses with motivational speaking, it really just gets me pumped and ready to go everyday.
So how I watched these videos is I play them from my iPhone, through my Bluetooth speaker while I'm taking a shower and then they're just playing while I'm brushing my teeth, while I'm getting dressed, while I'm getting ready for the day. Every morning, they're just playing and I play them loud and they just get me pumped and ready to go for the day.
There's a lot of good messages in these videos that helped me establish the mindset that I need to achieve my online goals. There's a lot of videos that talk about working hard, etc., but then there are also videos that talk about being consistent, being patient, not worrying about what other people think. These are all big doubts and problems that people have when they're trying to achieve their entrepreneurial goals because they get discouraged by a lot of these things.
So, not only that it gets me jazzed, ready, and motivated whatever, but it helps me develop the mindset that I need to see the long-term vision for my online business. If I were to recommend any motivational video channel, I would definitely recommend you check out Ben Lionel Scott channel. He's got a playlist and every morning I just shuffle the playlist and it will play random videos in order for me. And it really, really helps me get ready for the day.
