When I think of great motivational speakers I think of the following people: Eric Thomas, Debra Searle, Martin Luther King Jr and many many more. These great motivational speakers have inspired millions of people globally and brought about great amounts of social, mental and political change. Being a great, however, does not always require you to inspire millions, for you could have a life changing effect on a small proportion of people and still be considered as one the great motivational speakers of all time. My question is: How does one go about becoming one of the great motivational speakers? Is it possible for anyone to do it? To answer the latter question I would say it is possible; all it takes is dedication, charisma and resilience. I have studied many a motivational speaker and learned a multitude of lesson from them. Not only have I learned how to lead a better life, but I have also learned how to be a better motivational speaker. Let me share some of the tips and tricks that I have picked up.


The first thing that I have learned from many of the great motivational speakers is how to be charismatic. A lot of great motivational speakers have excellent stage presence which can well and truly inspire and entertain a crowd. However, this is not always such an easy thing for people to do, because for some people such excitedness does not come naturally. These individuals, however, deliver charismatic presentations through their tone of voice and subtle use of linguistic devices. Some of the greatest motivational speakers are able to have subtle changes in the tone of their voice to emphasise certain lines. Moreover, they are able to pause at just the right time to allow their audience time to reflect and think actively. One of my favourite speakers is Martin Luther King Jr because his tone and language was particularly inspiring for me.


The second thing that I have learned is that to be considered as a great motivational speaker you need a clear and consistent message. You musn’t waver from this message because this message is what will bring you success and allow you to help others. This message should be precise and clear, but, above all, this message should reflect the steps you have taken to succeed in life.


In summary, these two tips of mine should help anyone on their path to becoming motivational speakers. I highly recommend watching videos of some of the greats just so that you can get a feel of what they do that is so awe-inspiring.
