Does anyone else hate motivational crap?

"Never give up!"
"Trust your Instincts!"
"Do a barrel roll!"
"Anything is possible!"
"You only lose when you give up!"
"I have shit for brains!"
"You just need to be confident!"
"Keep it up, eventually you might succeed"
"You can do it!"
Etc.

Also motivational posters, sayings, speeches, videos, pep-talks etc.

Mostly when one presents the opinion that those are just baseless and annoying you're considered negative.

I don't know, I need as much motivation as I can get. Keeping these methods of mental torture in mind helps spur me on.

"You can do any job you want if you just try!"

Biggest lie ever. Even as a 5 year old I knew that was a hoax.
I... still believe that. What's there to stand between you and your goals but your inclinations?

While in excessive amounts, motivational speeches become meaningless, I find a well-placed, well-meant phrase just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Some people spout crap because it makes them feel better about themselves, but some just really want you to do your best, and want to help, if only with a bit of encouragement. While the actual words mean little, the feelings behind the words can be very heart-warming.

If it is honest I like it, if it is shallow bullshit so you can make the people more money fuck you.
