Welcome to the wonderful world of motivation
The entrepreneurial journey is largely documented as lonely and challenging. Thus, motivational quotes and speakers play an integral part in helping you to gain focus and perception of where you stand. Furthermore, they offer you some form of clarity on options available to you such that you acquire the right mindset to attain your future goals. But, before we get into what speakers to follow let’s first try and understand what exactly is motivation.
Motivation comes from the word ‘motive’ which has its origin derived from the word ‘movement’. Therefore, in simple terms, it’s all about taking action – moving from your current position to where you envision yourself, your career, or your business to be in a given period. That period being your objectives or goals is a great subject for another day. Today l will share 10 great speakers of this decade to follow to gain drive and inspiration throughout your business life.
Motivational speakers amongst other things are exceptional communicators, leaders, and inspirational people. Therefore, as an aspiring leader, you have valuable lessons to gain from these respectable individuals so that you sharpen your own skills. Motivation is an essential part of your leadership and the productivity of your teams as motivated teams tend to perform better.
