There are many people who changed the world out there and, believe it or not, you can be one of them. If not the whole world, at least your own. There is never an easy way to do that, but if you turn to the advice of these incredible motivational speakers, you are embarking on a beautiful journey toward self-discovery and self-improvement.
Here is a list of the best five motivational speakers who will steer you back in the right direction in no time.
1. Eric Thomas
He had a rough childhood in hometown Detroit, became homeless, and even dropped out of school at some point. His story, as well as the fact that, despite all these hardships, he is now a motivational speaker, should convince you that he is truly one to watch.
“Pain is temporary. It may last for a minute, or an hour or a day, or even a year. But eventually, it will subside. And something else takes its place. If I quit, however, it will last forever.”
2. Les Brown
Les Brown had it hard from the get-go. He was born in an abandoned building and was called mentally retarded as far as education goes. Needless to say, given his background, he didn’t even consider motivational speaking. Until he saw a man give a speech, that is. He was profoundly impressed by the man’s candor and power and decided to take up this road himself.
“Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.”
3. Tony Robbins
We chose Tony Robbins as one of the most powerful and astonishing motivational speakers in existence because he has proved he can overcome all the bad things life had to throw at him. By becoming one of the most appreciated motivational speakers, he proved you can too.
After his mother had threatened him with a knife, he decided to emancipate himself from her. However, he also had to work from a very early age, so that he could provide for his younger brothers. His career took off, and he has never looked back since. Only to get inspired and motivated, of course.
“It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”
4. Jim Rohn
If you want to learn about Jim Rohn’s credentials, all you need to know is that he is the one who motivated and mentored Tony Robbins. Apart from that, he also mentored Mark Hughes, who is the famous founder of Herbalife International. Therefore, if you needed inspiration, he is the ‘it’ guy. Jim Rohn has been one of the best motivational speakers in the world for the past 40 years.
“If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.”
5. Nick Vujicic
Nick is one of the most famous and incredible people in motivational speaking you will ever see, hear or meet. He was born with the Tetra-amelia syndrome, which means that Nick has no arms or legs. But has that stopped him from becoming everything he ever wanted? Of course, it didn’t.
Getting over this type of disability is, without a doubt, a most challenging thing from a mental, emotional, and physical point of view. Still, Nick Vujicic did it. And now he has graciously taken on the role of helping others overcome hardships as well. In the past years, Nick has spoken in 60 countries, to more than three million people.
“This life is full of great experiences if we only give it a shot.”
All these motivational speakers might be different in many regards. However, they have one common message they wish to put out in the world: You can do it!
