  1. Wow, what an awesome post indeed! I thoroughly appreciate the research you must have done to gather and compile so much information. The real pleasure is in helping others and your post is a greater help.

    Thanks for the article I enjoyed it! I love to read quotes and it inspires and motivates me a lot. The description you gave about the people who quoted those awesome quotes are very helpful.

    I am a fan of C. S. Lewis and the quote you shared “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream” is one of my favorite. I am going to read his book Mere Christianity.

    Keep up the great work!

    • Paul

      I am also a fan C.S Lewis, so it was good to hear you enjoyed his quote.

      Also, I am so glad to read that you found the description of the authors helpful. It makes and confirms that decision to include them, the correct one. Thank you.


  2. Wow! Amazing and very inspiring posts! Your post was successful in making me burn inside. I am happy with the inspirational quote you made. However, from the 20, this is the most favorite:
    “The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide where you’re not going to stay where you are” – J.P. Morgan.

    I feel that I am often stagnant in a position that keeps me from developing or going anywhere. I also often felt I lacked the courage to move. Though the life that I dreamed of was far from the reality that exists today.

    Once again, thank you for your post which strengthens me for more courage to take action and other steps.

    And one more thing, I’m happy with your website (website bookmarked)

  3. ” It always seems impossible until it’s done” by Nelson Mandela
    I like the words above, they give someone a hope that we need to start something even if it looks impossible or difficult. But the question, have you try to do it, or you die before your actual death?

    Thank you all video messages, i have loved all of them. They deserve to be in top 20, for 2020. Well done
    The future is brighter for you!

  4. I have enjoyed the messages from all top 20 videos for 2020, ” No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again” by Buddha.

    I have learned the\at the past must not be allowed to define the future of your life. A person must have  a room of disappointments and for improvements. What has not been achieved in 2019, can still be achieved in the coming year 2020.

    “It always seems impossible until is done” by Nelson Mandela.

    I have learned that, failure to start,is the failure to achieve the results. And  a person need not to die before actual death, by killing the dreams before put them into practice. How dreams die before known that they are genuine.

    Thank for sharing all top 20 video for 2020, they all relevant and deserve top be in top 2020.

    Good luck with the future endevour!

    • EdsonN
