In the last period, motivational speakers are criticized all over the place, which does not saddle me at all, because at most 2% of them bring something useful to society, the rest are just clones that recite the same truism read by the books written 40 years ago by Americans. I’m no longer criticizing them, that we did it already 5 years ago. Better to tell you what we could steal from them and integrate into our lives, beyond the bullshits with … And you can succeed in life, just to discover your inner strength.
Stay I wrote more on the topic: Young people and the choice of wrong mentors, The problem with Instagram hack is free workshops and about all the articles of personal development.
Are you ready to find out what we can steal from these specters? Let’s get started.
- Motivational speakers are extremely persevering, stubborn, obsessively pursuing their goals. Try one to fool you with a business lesson though he has no money to cross the street, you take him out on the door, he enters the window, calls you, sends you emails, messages, does anything to convince you. It takes a firm refusal, sometimes even a curse, to get rid of him.
I’m not saying now that we become equally annoying, but we can steal from them at least the ambition to set our goals and keep them attentive.
- Motivational speakers are very careful about how they look, how they dress, how they communicate with others. Some would say they are hipsters, others are metrosexual, but most of those who are trying to sell you these courses dress elegantly, match their clothes, pay attention to what messages they send not only through words but also through gestures, expressions, subliminal level.
As an idea, I think in the last years we wore a suit 2-3 times a year. And given that I often interact with my clients at the firm, I am aware that some of them would make a better impression if I had a better arrangement if I would speak more protocols. if…. Who knows, maybe I could even negotiate better contracts for us if I gave up jeans and a shirt every now and then.
What I mean is that unfortunately we still live in a society where people take a lot of appearances, and if you want to make a good impression it does not matter just what you have in your head, but also how you look, how you behave, how do you get dressed and how you talk. At least when you first interact with a person or a company.
- Motivational speakers are very organized. If you follow them a little, they always write things down through agendas, tasks, use various systems to evaluate themselves, and it’s not just a facade thing, from those personal development books they have taken good hold of this part, that a man organized is more successful than one for whom chaos is a way of life.
Fortunately, on this side, I am well, following the OCD that I have shown here, everything has to be organized and ordered to me, but if you have the impression that your life is drifting and you do not know where to start stealing this idea, you are looking for a system to determine what you have to do in stages, how to evaluate your progress, an application to write down what you have to do daily, and so on.
- These speakers are very informed, always up-to-date with news, and can easily integrate with different environments, adapting to the profile of people.
The theory says people can be introverted or extroverted, that is, those who prefer loneliness and those who are the soul of the party. In practice, I have seen many introverts who have learned to overcome their disabilities, socialize in various circumstances, and even make great presentations to thousands of people, but when the show ends, they do not drink and socialize, but they gather their toys and leave. They came, they delivered, they left.
What I want to say is that we can overcome our problems if we work on them, and even if we prefer to be alone we can always learn how to create our masks, be sociable, to integrate more easily into society when the situation required.
What more do we add to the list of things we can steal from motivational speakers? I’m not going to make the whole list, right?
