Top Youtube Channels for Motivation and Productivity So, how bad do you want to SUCCEED? Do you want it as bad as you want to breathe? Leave all your stuffs behind- Partying, fooling around, that basketball game on TV and whatever excuses you had which stopped you from performing. Focus and work on your habits because that’s how you will succeed. And for help, stretch out to a YouTube channel. Yes, you have heard it right. YouTube isn’t just for funny videos, silly prank invasions or drooling over Kardashian’s butt. They may relax you for while but they do no good. So, stop lurking and use YouTube for your own good. Get a daily dose of  videos from these channels which I have penned down, practice the idea and you will see the change in yourself.

So, if you want your quick dose of inspiration (you say in 4 to 5 minutes), subscribe Absolute Motivation.

Basquiat Picasso

Again one of the best places to find mashup videos, Basquiat Picasso offers inspiring videos which teach you to make solutions for your problems rather than making excuses.  My favorite from the collection is “Stop Whining, Start Grinding”.

He suffers from tetra-amelia syndrome which means that he is born without limbs. But he has accepted the reality like a warrior and has since then been living as an inspiration to millions around the world.
