Motivation For Becoming A Great Motivational Speaker
Becoming a motivational speaker was something I was able to achieve naturally, but that may not be the case for everyone, so here’s how you can learn to become a great motivational speaker.
The first step is talking positively… There is a story in the Bible that involves mind when ever I make an effort to explain how exactly to talk positively and in order to be a great public speaker you need to first understand this story that was told about Jesus over 2,000 years ago. It starts when Jesus was seen eating with sinners and tax collectors and was asked about any of it. In a nutshell, he explained that it had been not what goes into your mouth that makes you unclean, but moreover, it’s what comes out of one’s mouth. Because the words which come out of your mouth come from your heart.
That being said, once you see people talking negatively, you can view that negativity is clearly within their heart and have to refrain from talking in that manner as much as you can in order to be considered a person who is a superb motivational speaker. Personally, when ever I had to deliver a poor message to room full of people, I did so it in a funny way that sounded positive to my audience.
There was a time I had to create somewhat of a negative announcement to a room with over one hundred fifty people in it at the job. A mini van was parked in a reserved parking spot and the security officer said if they didn’t move their vehicle it was going to get delivered to the impound. And, this wasn’t said in such nice terms as I’m sure you could imagine. So, I grabbed the microphone and said; “Hey everybody… What do you call a frog that’s illegally parked?!… Toad… Speaking of towed, if you drive a gray mini van… ” Here you can see I used a joke as a way to express the message about the mini van needing to be moved without sounding too harsh or negative to the rest of the room and upsetting the grove of things.
The next step is knowing that everyone is human. Don’t worry about messing up, just just forget about it. No matter whether they are young, old, rich or poor, everybody is human and should be spoken to in such a way when speaking with a crowd. Also talk with people as people, and not as a status.
workplace inspiration I hear people on a regular basis say they cringe up when having to speak in front of a large group. So… Just forget about it… Imagine that individuals you are talking to are simply your friends who sometimes look up to you for guidance or support, and consult with this the large audience in a way that you would normally speak to just a few people in a smaller band of your close friends, but professionally without the all the gossip. Chances are, half individuals in that large group think they too couldn’t speak before such a large amount of people without stuttering or messing something up somewhere. Just take it easy, don’t worry, keep a smile on your own face and perhaps you can mirror the positive aspects of your audience.
Last but not least, another thing about being a great motivational speaker is to “Assume” that you are going to do a great job. No matter what happens, you understand that you tried your best to sway the crowd with your speech and didn’t let anyone’s negativity hold you back. Don’t be afraid of what others think, because your opinions may actually be guidelines. You’ll truly never know how great you are at being truly a motivational speaker unless you get out there and give it the old college try. And remember, everything good does take time and practice.
