The Official Top 100 Motivational Blogs From Around The World

To assist you in accomplishing such a goal, you will need resources.  And not just any resources, but resources that have the power to both inspire and light your fire.

As such, a list of the top 100 motivational blogs from around the world has been compiled to help you maintain your mojo and keep you fired up for life.

Note:  The following list of motivational blogs has been updated for 2018

Some of the blogs listed have an inspirational and self-improvement focus, but the common thread among them all, is their ability to motivate.  A handful of the motivational blogs listed are quite mainstream, so you may already be aware of them; however, there are others that are up-and-coming, provide immense value, and are highly motivational as well.

What is Motivation?

Before we get into the rankings, let’s briefly discuss what motivation is.  Why?  Because clarity leads to better awareness, awareness leads to better decisions, and better decisions leads to better results.

One of my favorite definitions of motivation, is simply, “Motivation as the driving force by which humans achieve their goals.”  I like it because it sums up why we all want to be motivated.  We all want to achieve.

Definition of Motivation

Another great definition of motivation is “Motivation as the state or condition of being motivated or having a strong reason to act or accomplish something.”

Both definitions speak to the fact that most people want to be motivated to achieve, and succeed in accomplishing those things they’ve made up their minds to do.

The Ranking

The ranking used for each motivational blog was acquired from Alexa rankings.  These numbers are always changing; however, this is the global rank from the time period in which my research was conducted.  I will be updating this resource intermittently, so the rankings may change.

Please know, that this is the most comprehensive list of motivational blogs on the internet. So, big kudos to you if you made this list.

Keep Your Fire Lit

As a student of human potential, I am always looking for ways to improve.  But just like you, I am only human, and some days my fire wanes.  And well, a fire half lit leads to potential half fulfilled.  As such, I lean on many of these resources to keep me motivated to grind at the levels necessary to live and work to my potential.

Motivational Blogs

The STRIVE supports big thinking and deep self-belief, and aims to produce as much motivation as possible to get you striving towards your grand ideas, so you can become all that you were born to be.  My hope is that these top motivational blogs will contribute to your motivation as well, and as a result, to your overall success in life.

There’s not a doubt in my mind, that happy, actualized, confident people, fired-up and fearlessly following their dreams are the ones truly set to make this world better.  So if you found value in this resource, please share it with your friends and family using the share buttons on the bottom of this page.  You never know what kind of magic a little motivation can help to create in one’s life.

A Very Important Question

Lastly, I plan to update this list periodically, so if there is a motivational blog that you think should be on this list, feel free to let me know in the comments section below.

As for the very important question: What’s was your favorite motivational blog from this list?

Till next time…. STRIVE!
