Types of Motivational Speakers
Does one type of motivational speaker fit all situations? Who do you find the most motivating? Is someone you admire but to whom you have trouble relating as motivating as someone you can both admire and relate to the struggles and victories of?
A flashy sports hero turned motivational speaker, with a well financed promo team, probably gets more attention as a motivator than an unknown over-comer of life’s setbacks. The former sports hero may do a great job, in the moment, but can they provide you with more long term bang for your buck than a relatively unknown over-comer?
Is a product with more money behind it a better product? Maybe, but maybe not. Is a speaker without a disability better than a speaker with a disability? If you understand that a physically disabling crash can change the body but not the spirit, the answer is obvious. To one who understands the deepening and enhancing affect that an external crash can have on one’s internal reality, to even ask seems absurd.
The thing about a motorcycle crash survivor is that everyone can relate to their struggles. We’re all familiar with the aftermath of a crash. Motorcycle crashes come in a million different shapes and sizes: divorce, bankruptcy, death of a loved one, job loss, car crash, the list goes on. What was your crash shaped like? Did it set you back or push you forward? Does it lift you up or pull you down?
Quick Charges or Permanent Thought Patterns
A motivational speaker to whom you can’t relate may be able to jump start you and make you feel like you can conquer the world with one hand tied behind your back, but if you have trouble relating to their challenges, and if your resources aren’t at least vaguely similar, how long will the charge last?
