How To Become A Motivational Speaker
There are many so-called gurus out there that are offering courses on how to become a motivational speaker. Yet, they are not making a living as motivational speakers. Chances are, they are only making a living at teaching it. As they say, there are those that teach and there those that do.
Fortunately, I have been speaking and making a living as a motivational speaker for the last 15 years. I have had the unique opportunity to impact lives the world over. Many Fortune 500 companies seek me out every year to boost morale for their employees.
The reality is, I can go on and on telling you about my accomplishments as a motivational speaker. But, I know you didn’t come here for that. I am sure if you go to Google and type my name (Rene Godefroy), you will be amazed at what you see.
Now, let’s talk about how to become a motivational speaker. The first thing I want you to get is the fact that you are already qualified to be a motivational speaker. You don’t need any special degrees or qualifications. Your words are good enough. You said you want to become a motivational speaker. That’s it. Who said it? You did. And that’s good enough.
Somehow a voice is whispering in your ears. Somehow you are called to do it. You are on a mission. God is calling you to step out and be an encourager for others. That is why you are seeking information on how to become a motivational speaker.
Later, I will be sharing with you many steps to becoming a motivational speaker. For now, I want to remove your doubts and fears. Yes. I know you have them. How do I know you have doubts and fears? Well, I have been there.
Although I wanted to step out and share my message with the world, something on the inside of me was telling I wasn’t qualified or good enough. I also had people around me suggesting I couldn’t become a motivational speaker.
Let me tell you this: If you look at my past, there’s nothing in it that remotely suggests one day I could be a highly paid motivational speaker in the United States. Let me share with why I said that…
My journey in life started in an impoverished village in Haiti. I was a very poor and sick kid living hopelessly. Life was really tough and dismal for me as a kid. Most of the people in the village gave up on me. They didn’t think I would survive. But by the grace of God, I made it.
At the age of 21, I entered the United States with $5, two shirts, one pair of pants and unable to speak any English. I worked as a janitor and did anything I could find just to survive as a broke and undocumented immigrant in Miami. Eventually, I made my way to Atlanta, GA.
When I decided to become a motivational speaker, I was a doorman at a hotel in Atlanta making $4.25 an hour. I was still learning English. I knew it was going to be very hard to convince meeting planners or speaker bureaus to put me in front of their audiences.
I knew I couldn’t compete with some of the top names in the speaking industry such as Les Brown, Zig Ziglar, Anthony Robbins, and Brian Tracy. Simply put, I didn’t know how in the world I was going to make it as a motivational speaker.
But, I knew for sure that I had the bulldog tenacity and internal fortitude. I also knew that I was willing to do whatever is necessary to become a motivational speaker. I was relentless. I had the audacity to believe I could do it… It was possible.
I didn’t know where to go for some motivational speaker training. Heck, I didn’t even know what Toastmasters International was back then. I simply took the plunge in spite of my fears.
I spent thousands of dollars and countless hours to really learn how to become a motivational speaker. I make lots of mistakes. I paid people who gave me some bad advice. Those are the people I mentioned earlier that are teaching theories instead of practical information.
Although I made many mistakes, I also did many things right. Today, I’m living my dream as a highly paid motivational speaker. I want you to live that dream as well. If you are ready to invest in yourself, I’m ready to hold your hand and show you the way.
However, you’ve got to really want it bad and be willing to do whatever is necessary.
I look forward to sharing some awesome insights, tips, ideas and strategies with you so that you can learn how to become a motivational speaker in a short period of time. It’s time to listen to the voice that is whispering to you. It’s time to step out.
I am ready to teach you how to become a motivational speaker. My question to you is this: Are you ready to learn? Are you ready to share your message with the world? Are you ready to let God use you as an His instrument to inspire and motivate others.
The time is now and the person is you! Listen and answer to the call! I hope you are ready to learn how to become a motivational speaker.
