Some daily lifestyle habits obstruct the process of getting to the peak of our careers. These lifestyle choices need to be replaced with new ones and trained to guarantee a clear path to the success you desire in your career. The following are nine essential changes that you need to fit into your lifestyle to ensure a successful career.

1. Have self-confidence

Self-confidence is the necessary foundation for having a successful career, and the ability to believe in yourself is what separates a good career from a mediocre one. It is common for individuals who lack the required confidence to have stagnant jobs.

Having confidence in yourself gives you the freedom to find creative and effective solutions and opportunities that have a positive impact on your career. You can take steps for building your self-confidence by challenging yourself and constructing positive evaluations of what you represent as an individual.

2. Invest in yourself

The more you invest in yourself, the greater the dividends. Investing in yourself opens up limitless opportunities which bring a certain level of satisfaction while guaranteeing you success. When you invest in yourself, you develop your skills and ideas which make you more valuable and give you the capacity to achieve greater heights. Failure to improve ourselves makes it unlikely to achieve a different outcome in the future because we still remain unchanged.

Advancing your education by getting relevant degrees and certifications, expanding your knowledge through extensive reading, exploring your creative side by learning a new skill are ways you can invest in yourself to get the successful career you desire.

3. Set long-term goals

In any field of work, it is very easy to lose focus when you fail to lay down the goals you wish to achieve within a period of time. Setting long-term goals provides direction, committing you on the task ahead. However, to meet your goals, it is essential to be specific about what you really want to achieve, as it enables you to measure your progress easily. Also, long-term goals are easily achievable when broken down into smaller goals, which allow you to tackle the tasks gradually.

Let me begin with a question: what does it mean to be powerful? Although this may seem quite straightforward, I think it is actually quite a difficult question to answer. Often when thinking of the word powerful, people think about physical strength or muscle mass – I’m not thinking about that. When I think of the word powerful, I think about someone having control over a group of people, and the ability to motivate and influence them. I am, therefore, thinking about what it means to be a powerful motivational speaker. There are lots of great motivational speakers in the world; however, I don’t think that we can label them all as powerful. The simple reason being that they cannot influence enormous amounts of people. I have found three people that I believe to be powerful motivational speakers, hence let us explore the work that they do.


The first of the three powerful motivational speakers is Jim Lawless. Jim is a world-renowned speaker who has inspired many business owners to take risks and to challenge themselves to be better. Jim has been able to entertain over 500,000 people across a wide variety of continents with his scintillating presentations. He also advocates a method, which is the title of his most famous book, called the “Taming Tiger”.  The method is rather simple and asks people to take risks, challenge their own customs and never give up. He sums up these ideas in 10 simple rules and these rules have had profound effects on people worldwide. His ability to motivate people to take risks is one of the reasons that he is one of the most powerful motivational speakers.


The second of the three powerful motivational speakers is Boris Brott – a Canadian conductor who has also worked closely with a number of large corporations. Boris is well-known for his customized presentations which are engaging and motivating. His charisma is exemplary and so is his capacity to draw comparisons between music and business. He notices how both orchestras and businesses attempt to achieve similar goals – they want perfection, for example. He also notices how they both aim to innovate and be creative. His charisma and ability to make analytic comparisons earns him a place on my list of powerful motivational speakers.


The final person on the list of powerful motivational speakers is Jordan Belfort. If you have seen “The Wolf of Wall Street” you will already know a fair deal about this man and what he does. He had enormous business success, but also had a huge fall from grace. Following his fall, Jordan aimed to help businesses with his Straight Line Persuasion system. This system has enabled him to help many firms to prosper. It is due to this recovery and success that he features on the list.


These are just three powerful motivational speakers. There are many more out there, so I highly advise you to be on the lookout for someone that you connect with.

When I think about speakers in the world of entertainment, I immediately think of comedians. Comedians are individuals who have the sole purpose of making people laugh. It sounds rather simple, but I am sure that you have realised it is not (perhaps whilst attempting to come up with a witty one liner, but then realising that you cannot). I think that speakers in the world of entertainment are just as important as ordinary speakers, because bringing happiness to others is always an important thing. Bringing happiness to others is particularly important in the modern world, due to the large amount of suffering and tragedies that we have witnessed. Moreover, speakers in the world of entertainment often raise awareness of important topics, albeit in a rather humorous way. Hence, let us have a look at some popular speakers in the world of entertainment, and some of the issues that they tackle.


The first person on my list of popular speakers in the world of entertainment is Ricky Gervais. He is well known for the television series “The Office” in which he starred as David Brent. Ricky Gervais is also well-known for his stand-up comedy shows; most recently I saw his show “Humanity” and it was absolutely hilarious. Gervais is a legendary comedian; however, he also speaks openly about his disdain towards the treatment of animals. Gervais has “never understood animal cruelty” and, therefore, actively questions the treatment of animals and certain events which involve animals, such as bullfighting. Not only is he an admirable comedian, but he is also a great advocator for animal rights. Hence, I think that he is one of the most popular speakers in the world of entertainment.


The second person on my list of popular speakers in the world of entertainment is the American comedian, Kevin Hart. I don’t know whether I have met someone who did not know Kevin Hart, hence why I would argue that he is one of the most widely known speakers in the world of entertainment. His jokes are funny, and he has even done a good job as an actor, appearing in films such as “Night School” and “Jumanji”. He too has used his fame in order to better the lives of others. Kevin has a particular focus on “advancing black pathways” and he works closely with Chase – a consumer banking company – so that he can do just that. He is an excellent comedian, and does a great deal to help others succeed and prosper. For these reasons, Kevin Hart features on my list of the most popular speakers in the world of entertainment.


Of course, there are plenty of other excellent comedians – Katherine Ryan, Jack Whitehall or Jimmy Carr (to name a few) – but these two stand out to me. I think that comedy can really open up a great number of pathways, thus making it a great think to get into.

Sometimes it is just really hard to be positive. As much as you may try to be positive, things may just not be going your way. For example, you could’ve missed an important delivery which can dampen your spirits, or you could just be having a bad day at work. Regardless of what it is, there always seems to something with the potential to ruin your positivity. How is it, then, that motivational speakers are able to be so positive? One could also ask the question: why are motivational speakers so positive? I think the former question is hard to answer, purely because we do not truly know what is going through the head of a motivational speaker. However, we can attempt to answer the latter question. Let us, therefore, explore the possible motives behind motivational speakers’ positivity.


The first reason that motivational speakers are positive is so that they can improve the confidence of their audience members. Confidence is the sort of thing which you get when someone is speaking highly of you, or when you are feeling positive about yourself. It would seem odd, therefore, for a motivational speaker to take anything but a positive tone should he or she wish to instill confidence in the audience. A positive tone can make an individual feel happier about their ability, therefore meaning that they have the potential to be more confident.


Secondly, a motivational speaker may be positive so that they can deal with some tricky topics. When faced with a difficult topic, I think the worst thing you can do is be negative. If you were to take a negative tone, you are far more likely to create distance between yourself and the audience, therefore meaning that your message will not be well received. Contrariwise, if you were to take a positive tone, the audience may not think that the issue is quite as bad, thus meaning that they will be less likely to zone out due to angst or fear, for example.


Finally, motivational speakers are positive so that their audiences can have as much fun as possible. At the end of the day, the best way to build up a good reputation is by making sure that people like your talks. Therefore, in order to be popular, you ought to incorporate some sort of positivity – perhaps some jokes, or funny anecdotes – in order to set you apart from the rest.

Unfortunately, for many years, women were seen to be inferior to men. The common view was that women lacked both the physical and mental capacity that men had. This led to women not being able to receive education, or the right to vote. They were, as a result of this view, merely seen as people who should occupy the family home. Thankfully, this view has changed and women are now seeing the equality that they deserve. Such equality is also seen in the field of speaking and there are many inspirational female speakers who are getting a whole lot of recognition. Let us have a look at the work of some of the best inspirational female speakers to see what makes them so good.


The first of three inspirational female speakers is Lisa Nichols – a very popular motivational speaker who is also the CEO of “Motivating the Masses” (an organisation which has helped approximately 30 million people). Lisa is one of the most inspirational female speakers due to her inspiring and determined attitude. This is a skill which is shown by many inspirational speakers; however, Lisa is able to show it to the utmost degree of excellence. Lisa teaches about “The Law of Attraction” and I highly recommend visiting her website, or reading her book, if you want to find out more.


The second of the three inspirational female speakers is Jen Hatmaker – an American Christian author, blogger, speaker and television presenter. As one of the leading inspirational female speakers, Jen has the ability to speak nationally to a wide range of audiences on a variety of topics. Some of these topics are: parenting, leadership, writing or Christianity. I consider her to be one of the most inspirational female speakers due to her ability to be relatable, humorous and knowledgeable about her field.


The final speaker is a television personality who may not formally be considered a speaker, nevertheless she has inspired many people. This person is Ellen Degeneres – the host of The Ellen Show. The reason that I think Ellen is an inspirational female speaker is because she regularly inspires young people to do their best whilst at school. Moreover, she speaks well on a wide variety of issues and always does so with humour. For these reasons, I think that Ellen ought to be considered as a great speaker.


These are just a few great speakers; however, there are many more in the world. They are all confident, intelligent and inspiring individuals, so I highly recommend looking into their work if you want to know more.

I think that leadership is, arguably, the most sought after trait in the world. It is both sought after by individuals – because they want to be leaders – and by organisations, who are looking for good leaders. To be a leader, you must be calm, organised, rational and so on and so forth – the list of qualities is almost endless, because everyone has the capacity to be a leader in their own right. No matter what sort of leader you are, though, you must have the capacity to work with people. Moreover, you must have the ability to inspire these people and motivate them to reach their full capacity. It is these skills which make leaders such incredible persons. Let me highlight a few examples of motivational leadership in the modern world, so that you can understand what it takes to be a leader.


My first example of motivational leadership is seen on the sporting field. Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket captain, is arguably one of the best leaders in the world due to his ability to lead from the front. He is an incredible batsman who averages around 50 in all three formats of the game. For those of you that don’t know, that is a mighty fine achievement. He shows signs of motivational leadership because he is able to bring out the best in players around him. He is fiery on the pitch and he is always willing to show how passionate he is. I believe that Virat is an excellent example of motivational leadership in the modern world because he is a role-model for people who look up to him, and because he leads his team from the front.


My second example of motivational leadership comes from the well-known Tibetan Leader, the Dalai Lama. The reason that he is such a great leader is because he has campaigned for many years in order to promote peace, democracy and nonviolence. He has also done so with a constant smile on his face, and always with the best of intentions. His display of motivational leadership is exemplary for anyone who is attempting to bring peaceful change, therefore making him a legendary figure.


These two people are, in my opinion, completely different from one another. Virat Kohli is a fiery, competitive figure who is always looking to bring the best out of his teammates. On the other hand, the Dalai Lama is entirely peaceful, spiritual and calm in his attempt to bring tranquility to the world. Nevertheless, despite their differences, these two individuals are great leaders who have the capacity to bring change into the world. For these reasons, they must be accredited for the work that they have done.

By definition, leadership is a practical skill, whereby an individual has the ability to lead a group of people, or an organization. In my opinion, motivational speakers often showcase their capacity for leadership by leading presentations for the masses – be they groups of students, or business leaders. Leadership is a vital quality for motivational speakers to possess for a multitude of reasons. Not only is leadership vital for motivational speakers, but it is vital for everyday life. Should you wish to become a leader, I suggest you pay attention for the next few minutes as I explore why leadership is a common trait among motivational speakers.


The primary reason that leadership is a key quality of motivational speakers is because it is their job to influence people. Influencing audiences requires you to be a leader – you must be able to lead from the front, if you will, in order to get the audience on your side. Moreover, influencing others involves leading them in the right direction. This is exactly what motivational speakers do, through the means of motivational anecdotes or other such methods. We see, therefore, that leadership is essential, should you wish to influence a group of people. You cannot effectively influence a group of people if you do not lead them properly, so as a motivational speaker, you must be a good leader.


Furthermore, leadership is essential for motivational speakers because you are able to instill confidence in your audience, if you come across as a good leader. This may not seem obvious to some, so let me explain it in a bit more detail. As a motivational speaker, it is your job to clearly and effectively explain what the people are good at and how they can get even better. In a sense, therefore, you are leading people towards a more confident lifestyle by giving them tips to maximise their potential. If you do this in a manner which is unlike that of a leader, your audience will not believe in you. Hence, it is vitally important to show off your leadership skills when trying to give people confidence, so that they truly trust and believe in you.


Finally, leadership is important because, at the end of the day, motivational speakers are global role-models. You only need to look at the world leaders in the field to understand just how influential they are. They are role-models for so many people, so it is essential for them to positively influence people by displaying their leadership in a positive and helpful manner. This doesn’t mean, however, that we don’t all have the capacity for leadership. In fact, we all do and we should all aim to showcase it.

To be an inspirational speaker is to be a beacon of hope for millions of people. It’s a career that is focused on bringing people up from places of hardship and giving them the tools to fulfil their potential. Over the years the world has received many great inspirational speakers who have changed the mentality of millions of people and instilled hope in millions of people. Here are a few of the greatest inspirational speakers to walk the earth.

Religion is a core pillar in billions of people’s lives. Many of the great inspirational speakers have used their own religious experience to inspire others. One of those speakers is Nick Vujicic. Vujicic has a condition called Tetra-Amelia and was born without arms or legs. However, this has never been a hindrance to him. In his faith, Vujicic found a spirit of perseverance and love that he now shares to millions across the world. His story of success never fails to touch the lives of those who are listening to him, no matter what background they come from.
Another great inspirational speaker who also focused on religion was Martin Luther King. King was a civil rights activist who gave possibly the most famous speech of all time, titled ‘I Have a Dream’. His work across America changed the lives of millions of African Americans and Black people across the world, not only in his time but for future generations to come. He did all of this whilst maintain a loving, just and truthful movement that can be used as an example of how to overcome any injustice.
When I think of modern day inspirational speakers I think of Eric Thomas. He is an American speaker who focuses on high energy talks which drive people to improve themselves. He has also managed to establish a strong presence on social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter which allows his message to be accessible to a faced-paced generation who may not have the time to listen to hour long talks on motivation on a regular basis.
These are just three of the great inspirational speakers in recent times. There have been many other speakers who may speak to you more deeply than those mentioned in this article. I encourage you to search for someone who resonates with you and what you’re trying to achieve

In recent times, there have been a number of phenomenal World Famous Speakers who have dominated the motivational speaking world, inspiring millions of individuals to live productive and successful lives. These people deserve all the recognition and respect that comes with reaching such levels of fame. Here are 3 World Famous Speakers who have changed the motivational Speaking World.


Eric Thomas is an American born motivational speaker who has recently taken the world by storm. Born in Chicago and suffering from a rough childhood which left him homeless for two years, Thomas has managed to turn misfortune into inspiration for a young generation of athletes, entrepreneurs and other individuals. He has an intense, passionate style, derived from his preaching roots. He is also a Master of Social Media, with over two million followers on Instagram, Twitter and YouTube collectively. It is clear that his fiery words resonate with a new, fast-paced millennial generation.


Nick Vujicic is another World Famous Speaker. He is a walking embodiment of motivation. Vujicic was born with Tetra-Amelia syndrome and was born without arms or legs. However, like Eric Thomas, Vujicic has proven that nothing can stop someone from becoming a beacon of motivation for others. Vujicic is an evangelist and has devoted his life to spreading the Christian faith and his miraculous story to the world. His worldwide success and triumph over disability has cemented him as a historical figure in both the motivational speaking and Christian world.


When you think of a motivational or uplifting speech, chances are, Barack Obama’s ‘Yes We Can’ speech will come to mind. Obama was already on the world stage, having been elected as the president of the United States of America, but what Obama did with that platform is truly worth remembering. A victory speech is one of the hardest speeches to give, 50% of your audience didn’t want you to have the platform you’re using to address them, and it is down to you to unite them. Now imagine having to unite the world. Achieving such a feat is a monumental task that takes an incredible speaker to do so. Obama is one of the few people who could achieve that.


There have been many World Famous Speakers that haven’t been mentioned in this article. People such as Zig Ziglar and Les Brown who have been just as influential as the speakers listed above. Take the time to read about the amazing people and listen to their speeches and talks. They’re famous for good reason.

I believe I have what it takes to be a Motivational Speaker. Throughout my life, I have noticed a need for great Motivational Speakers to inspire others so that they can fulfil their full potential, and I know that I have the skills to be one of those people. Here are the qualities that I possess that are necessary for being a Motivational Speaker.


Firstly, Confidence is key to providing impactful and life-changing speeches. To be a Motivational Speaker, one must have the confidence to get up in front of a large crowd and speak clearly and effectively. One must also be able to effectively transfer that confidence to the audience. Motivational Speaking is about making your audience believe that they have the ability to achieve a particular task. Any credible Motivational Speaker knows that instilling the right mindset leads to productivity. In recent years, I have participated in many workshops and sessions aimed at improving public speaking confidence, in addition to practising my public speaking at local schools and competitions.


Secondly, to be a Motivational Speaker, one must have credibility. It is very hard to convince someone to follow your advice when you don’t have a CV/resume that is deserving of respect. If you are an entrepreneurial Motivational Speaker, it would be advantageous to have one or two functioning and successful businesses that you can use as the products of your advice. I have an impressive portfolio that I have already used in talks. Becoming a Motivational Speaker would only give me more opportunities to expand my portfolio.


The last thing a Motivational Speaker needs is flexibility. This, in my opinion, is the most important quality a Motivational Speaker must have. People are incredibly diverse, every person you meet will have a different set of problems to overcome or skills that they want to use. As a Motivational Speaker, you need to be able to recognise the different situations people are in and tailor your responses to them. Furthermore, some people may simply be uninterested in a certain style of speaking. I have proven myself to be flexible when it comes to creating engaging speeches. However, I can also recognise when to be specific and target a certain audience, I often find that some Motivational Speakers fail to resonate with anyone as a result of trying to be non-specific.


Ultimately, I want to be a Motivational Speaker and I have the skills to do so. I have an understanding of what is required to be successful in the world of Motivational Speaking and I am looking forward to using that knowledge in the future.
