The aim of the motivational speech or reading is to get the audience acting or changing their behavior or beliefs in some way. To try to strengthen their commitment and at least get them to agree with your like-minded proposal, thoughts or beliefs.
For me, it's watching or reading inspirational speeches, presentation or trainings on how to better yourself, both personally & professionally, in this ridiculously competitive world in which we live.
People like Greg Provenzano, George Zalucki, Larry Raskin, Darren Hardy and others, seems to make a real and lasting connection with me personally.
My questions is...
What is it, or whom is it, that motivates you?
Please feel free to list what it is that gets you up and going in the positive, like-minded direction you've set for yourself...
