The Top 50 Blogs That Will Unleash Your Motivation

by Brad Isaac on July 23, 2007

I sometimes need a good kick in the pants, don’t you? Like everyone, I have days where I don’t feel like doing what I know I need to do.

Where do I turn during times like these? I launch my RSS reader and pull up my favorite motivational blogs.

These are the best of the best because it’s one thing for someone to tell you what to do, it’s another thing for them to take their own advice! This is a list of some of the hardest working self development blogs and bloggers – who not only talk the talk, they walk the walk. Many of them have day jobs and families and still take time almost every day to give you their best.

I suggest you check them out and add them to your list of motivational resources.

Here are the top 50 in no particular order -

Brad, nice list — thanks for compiling it. My wife and I each write blogs with a motivational slant, and have been lamenting lately that most blog award entry forms never have a category for self-help or motivational. It’s nice to have a bunch of good ones compiled in one place!

Great list. It would be even better if you (and others who provide lists of blogs) would provide an associated OPML file as a download so the readers can easily import this list into their favorite blog reader. It just seems more productive than manually adding each one. :-)

I’ve been to quite a few of these sites, but got a little miffed when I came across contradicting opinions in there.

Ideally, I’d not want to have a list longer than 10 sites, only those which have the most pertinent content.

Eric S. Mueller July 30, 2007 at 9:25 am

Thanks, Brad. I put them all into Google Reader.

This is a hot list. Thanks for compiling all those great motivational sites. I am going to book mark this list.

I have blogged at my Fortune 500 career about teaming, motivation, and leadership for a few years now and have had so much success I have decided to do the same in the real world. My blog is coming into being right now. My hope is one day to be on your wonderful list.
