This is one of my favorite times of year to search the internet. I'm a sucker for really motivational commencement speeches from celebrities and other dignitaries. And every year there always seems to be a few that really stick out, like these.

The COO of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg's speech at the University of Cal Berkley is one of the more heart wrenching and emotional commencement speeches I've heard in a long time. I've included her speech, which talks about the ability to overcome adversity in your life and she shares how she how she personally overcame adversity when she lost her husband just a year ago. (Get ready to shed a few tears)

Then of course is my hero Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks who returned to Wisconsin to give this years commencement speech. I especially love the advice he gives on what not to do, when you are 2nd and goal from the 2 yard line with 26 seconds left in the Super Bowl.
