Have you ever wondered how a motivational speaker motivates people?
Duncan Stevens has been a professional motivational speaker and keynote speaker for over a decade and influences companies through his powerful Effective Influence Model, to become more effective and more persuasive more often.
Sometimes people expect motivation to come in the form of a magic bullet, rocket fuel, or a fantastic pill that is unexpectedly going to make them more motivated. As with lots of things in life, there is hardly ever a quick fix, immediate motivator, or anything like that. Nevertheless, inspiration can come as an ‘ah-ha event or come in the type of a brand-new way of envisaging something in a different way to catapult you into action.
Motivation derives from the Latin word move; indicating to move, agitate, prompt, or influence. Therefore, the first part of Motivation originates from the Latin– ‘to move’ and the second element, in its most literal form is ‘action’. So the word motivation actually implies– To provoke or agitate into action.
As an example, if you wish to be inspired into reducing your weight, the motivation can sometimes come from being confronted with a brand-new point of view. You may see yourself in the mirror as looking a bit overweight or might acknowledge you are having breathing or skin difficulties, or someone has made a rude comment about you.
Whatever the factor, we are all motivated in various ways. This motivation likewise comes from different locations too. Several people’s motivations can be intrinsic, suggesting that it is derived internally. This could be a frame of mind, belief, or value that inspires us into action. Equally, inspiration can originate from an extrinsic source and be the result of external forces.
Groups or individuals are encouraged or influenced to act or alter through both mindful and non-conscious motives.
Some people wait and wait to try and discover the ideal motivation to make things take place however more often than not motivation comes from a much deeper location. A location within. There is likewise the other option when something inspires a lot of people enough to take action and this is the magic pill (if you like) that provides them with the inspiration they require. And therein lies the catch– they don’t know what the magic tablet is to encourage them, so they do not understand what it is or where to find it up until it emerges.
As a motivational speaker myself, when I deliver my workshops or masterclasses, I’m frequently approached to encourage and inspire others into making a greater difference. It appears that other people are searching for someone else to deliver the inspiration to them and someone else has the secrets to make it take place. In a way, this is perhaps why ‘ inspirational or motivational speaker’ is such a popular search term instead of ‘inspiring speaker’, sales speaker, keynote speaker, or leadership speaker. Deferring the obligation of motivation and handing it to another person, allows them to sit back and if they aren’t encouraged– they can blame someone else somewhere else. Their self-talk could be “Well I wasn’t encouraged by that” and as a result, very little changes.
The other danger of passing the responsibility to someone else is that you become reliant on that form of inspiration. So, if you hire Duncan Stevens as a motivational speaker for your conference, sales-kick off, yearly meeting, or business occasion once a year, you can wind up falling into the trap of only being motivated once a year. , if your inspiration boost comes from an external source there is less sustainability in it unless you hire them to come and deliver more regular workshops, keynotes, or masterclasses.
Whilst the majority of customers do not hire Duncan to come in every week to keep their teams and leaders encouraged and similarly many people can’t pay to pay a personal fitness instructor or nutritionist or life coach every week, inspiration has to come from within. Among the most powerful ways to stay determined or develop a culture of inspiration is to nurture it from within. This can be called self-motivation. Equally so, we need to be able to distance our inspiration levels from tangible objects around us. Self-talk can be incredibly damaging to our motivation levels. If you find yourself stating “Well there is no healthy food for sale here, I may too simply buy some chips” or “I can’t connect with any of my customers as I don’t have my phone to hand” then these are reasons not to do things.
Inspiration then comes down to a way to range yourself from these things or perhaps reframe them. Even better would be to plan for these possible issues and take a healthy lunch with you or get in touch with customers through email as options.
I think motivation can be manufactured internally. You know what encourages you. You could be driven by cash, food, an alcoholic drink, winning at something, or more. Using those motorists that currently exist within you can be extremely encouraging. Jeopardizing these can be a powerful motorist.
