Motivational speakers are all the rage these days. From corporates to entrepreneurs, individuals with lots of knowledge, lots of unique ideas, and a lot of ideas to share are respected for their valuable contribution in an organization`s as well as employees` journey.
A motivational speaker can make us laugh, motivate us, give us a new perspective, and sometimes can make us cry. Not only do they earn everyone`s respect and attention, but also earn well. Famous business motivators in India include Dr. Vivek Bindra, Sandeep Maheswari, and Apple`s founder Steve Jobs who got fired from his own company if we are talking about the global platforms.
But, what if ordinary people like you and I want to become motivational speakers? What if you want to inspire others, but you haven`t faced hardships in your initial growing years, or poverty, or high tragedy? Don`t worry! Everyone has something inspiring to say. We all are unique and that sets us apart.
Nothing can stand in your way if you are passionate about your desire to become a motivational speaker. But there are a few factors that you must consider if you want to become a motivational leader in India. Here goes the list:
1. Be a Mentor
So you may not become like Dr. Vivek Bindra, but you surely are having experiences that can be valuable to others. There is nothing more inspirational than a knowledgeable individual who has unique insights, and interesting opinions. Apart from these qualities, you must also have the ability to spark a discussion, and listen to others without being judgmental.
To be a good motivational speaker, one also needs to learn how to be a mentor by providing informed insight into the way you see the world. Imparting your knowledge with grace is the first step towards being an inspirational speaker.
2. Be a Helper
Everyone needs a leg up at some point in their career. Help someone even if it only means sharing some pointers on the organization you are working for, or work experience, or passing on a resume to the right person.
Whether you believe in karma or not, the givers do receive good things in unexpected ways. In addition to this, it can also help you to build networking. In the words of Steve Jobs during his famous speech at Stanford University, “You can`t connect the dots going forward, you can only connect them going backward.”
3. Set an Example
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” So, from turning up on time to being well-prepared for a conference or a meeting to ensuring that your teammates are not working all hours whatever your expectations of your team are, exemplify them yourself.
The best way to lose respect is to expect standards from others, but not meet them yourself. Your team will take notice. Walk the talk, and not just talk the talk.
4. Be Imaginative & Empathetic
Human beings are a bag of mysterious emotions. We all can feel lost and purposeless at times, and we all have complicated lives. Always remember this while addressing other people as it can help you to access the empathy inside of you to inspire those around you.
JK Rowling once said in her speech, “Imagination is the power that enables us to empathize with humans whose experience we have never shared.” Humans are blessed with the power of imagination and this can aid us to imagine what others are going through and feeling. Those who embody this power are the few that truly inspire others.
So be imaginative, place yourself in others` shoes, and have confidence in your own experience. This will transform you into a powerful and motivational leader. Soon, you will watch yourself inspiring everyone around to reach their full potential and flourish.
