The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale
The strangest secret has got to be one of the best, if not the best video I have watched/listened to. It's a lot to unpack but provides in-depth content on what success is, how to achieve it, how to essentially not be a miserable human being and achieve what you set out to do. I recommend everyone listen to this video, that I why I put it at the top of my list.
