Motivational Music Mix

I created this mix last  week.  It’s been well received by the community.

The mix has over 4,000 plays, and over 1,200 people “liked” it!

Because of the attention it has received, there have been a few requests for more information.  Here you go…


  1. Download “01 Powerful Beyond Measure”  Removed at the request of Eminem’s lawyers
     – Movie Scene Compilation – “Our Deepest Fear” speech is from Coach Carter.  “I’m So Bad” quotes were written by Muhammad Ali, and featured in When We Were Kings.  Also, the unmistakable voice of Sylvester Stallone comes up a few times.  These are clips from his speech in the newest Rocky movie, Rocky Balboa.  These were compiled into a YouTube video.

      Right-click the download link, and, depending on your browser, choose “Save link as…” or “Save target as…” or something similar.

    Don’t know if you have plans to add more similar tracks, but Good Day by Nappy Roots would be a good candidate.

    • Bob

      Yes, I am certainly taking suggestions. I’ll either add them to this mix, or create a “version 2” in the future. Thanks for the recommendation!

    • Bob

      That speech before the Breaking Benjamin song is from a movie called The Great Dictator. It was Charlie Chaplin, speaking to Nazi soldiers in 1940. The background music during his speech comes from Hans Zimmer’s “Time“, on the Inception soundtrack.

    Hi Bob! Absolutely love the mix, incredibly inspiring when I would rather stay in bed than run. I would like to download it though but seem to be the only one having trouble. Every time I try to “save link”, the only option that I get right clicking, the file downloads and saves as a web page. Any idea why?

    • Bob

      See if you have any better luck with left-clicking. And if you miss the link while right-clicking, then it will try to save the webpage. Make sure your mouse is hovering over the link when you right-click.

    Dude… This is frigging awesome. Thank you so much.
    I’ve only downloaded the “Soldiers will not break” with the Inception soundtrack background so far. Nearly cried listening to that. Thanks for the easy download

    but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your
    blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow over


    Hello there! This blog post could not be written much better!
    Looking through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept talking about this. I most certainly will send
    this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a very good read.
