The Most Positive and Motivational YouTube Channels and Videos!


One of the best ways to stay focused, get out of a slump, change your mental perspective toward a positive one, or get a little extra motivation for the day, a goal, or to stay the course of your dreams is to tap into the wisdom and strategies of the greats! With the invention of the internet and amazing video platforms such as YouTube we can now do this easier than ever before! We can literally listen to the best teaching, insights an perspectives while doing dishes, or the laundry, or both, while driving or working out! We live in amazing times. The opportunity to tap into the depth of knowledge in humanity through technology should not be missed. Learning through audio and video has helped me grow tremendously over the years and that is why I am creating a list of the most positive and motivational YouTube channels and videos. In hope that I can expose you to someone new or some new ideas that will add value and richness to your journey.

If you are reading this then chances are good you have some sort of social media stream such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. I am a huge believer of flooding these streams with inspiring, solution oriented, positive people, and information. Many people unfortunately seem to be focusing on the negative situations going on in the world and interestingly enough re-post a lot of the stuff they don’t want to see happen in the world. Its a strange thing. “here, I hate this, please watch, don’t do this…” or “I hate when people (fill in the blank), lets talk about it for 20 minutes…” But the greats of the world do not do this. They understand that what we focus on becomes our reality. It is important to know the truth and to be informed of situations, events, and changes around us as to take the right actions for ourselves and others. However, there is a difference between being informed and staying consumed by external events. There is a difference between those who perpetuate negativity by saying they don’t want it while re-posting or harping on it, and those who understand the situation; who offer real time solutions and redirect themselves and others back to where the true power is. In self. These are the greats, the highly positive, growthful, gracious, giving, creative, persistent, empathetic, and successful humans among us, living there dreams, who choose to share there perspectives, wisdom, and experiences as to benefit the ones around them. Well…that is my criteria of being great anyway! I am in great appreciation for those who put themselves out there to help others and myself grow. Those who risk by sharing, who continue to speak truth and show love against all odds and adversity. We do not get anywhere in life alone…ever. Every step of the way someone has been a part of our journey. Aloneness is an Illusion. This list is dedicated to those who have helped me along the way in my journey and to those whom this list might come to at the right time, to learn the right thing, to get them through something they need to get through.

My intention in this article is to start sharing with you a few of my favorite teachers in the subjects of Spirituality, self help, consciousness, cultivating awareness, business, motivation, Inspiration and successful life strategy! These are people who are putting out tons of valuable content on YouTube that is part of the solution to self empowerment and positive self growth. I suggest if you resonate with one of them you subscribe to their channels, to bookmark their pages as references so you can use them in the future and to get updated when they release new content.

These are not average people leading an average life with an average message. These are extraordinary people living their dreams with extraordinary messages that will effect your life if your willing to listen and apply!

Organization and Future of this List:

This article ‘The Most Positive and Motivational YouTube Channels and Videos is just beginning. I believe it just scratching the surface of the potential of the list being created here…. I am starting it off with some of my personal favorites over the years. With 3 subjects and providing an embedded video and a link for each YouTube Channel…

1.) Individuals(Teachers, speakers, public figures) who have extensive, active, and consistent YouTube channels with top quality content.

2.) Channels by Individuals who create amazing compilation videos of the best teachers and speakers.
