What Do Top Motivational Speakers Regard as a Key to Success?

Ideas abound regarding keys to success. Current society obsesses over success and how to be even more successful. Many top motivational speakers discuss the idea that success is dependent on your ability to aim high.

Aiming high refers to the ability to reach for the stars, to not be limited in your dreams. As young children, we dream of becoming doctors or astronauts, famous musicians or actors. The young are not limited by the reality surrounding them; they simply focus on the future and its infinite possibilities of what they will do when they are 'all grown up'. As we mature, many of us lose this ability to dream big and we say of those who continue to dream that they are looking at the world 'through rose-colored glasses'. Top motivational speakers understand that society is dampening the spirits of the young, resulting in a lowering of expectations.

Top Motivational Speakers Demonstrate Aspiration

As the top motivational speakers share their stories of incredible life difficulties and how those barriers were defeated, they demonstrate that setting your sights high is a positive attribute in an individual. Setting low expectations allows individuals to quickly obtain their wishes, leaving them wandering and dissatisfied with their life. Achieving those low expectations produces a temporary feeling of satisfaction, followed by a deflated spirit, as there exist no future goals to work towards.

To aim high involves focusing beyond the failures, to the possibilities. Failures need to be treated as learning experiences. Those failures are stepping-stones to even greater achievement. Top motivational speakers come from all walks of life with most experiencing unbelievable difficulties. Instead of giving up and allowing those difficult experiences to dictate their life, they moved past them, setting their sights on amazing dreams. Not allowing themselves to become mired in the negative, produced perseverance and drive for future success!

Aiming High Provides Motivation

Top Motivational Speakers Aiming High Provides MotivationIt is right in the title of all top motivational speakers. Their ability to overcome and aspire to greater things provided motivation to keep moving forward. That motivation is key to success as it continually spurs the person forward, pushing them to dream bigger and seek for greater heights. Aspirations are not necessarily money based. Aspirations include meeting a goal, serving others, humanitarian work, and, yes, fame. Each individual must define what success means in their life and work towards that, not allowing others to belittle their wishes and waylay them along the path.

Motivation Provides Excitement

Motivation Provides ExcitementThe motivation to push forwards creates a sense of excitement. As you keep your eyes focused on the goal, exhilaration grows, pushing you even further along the path to your success! Again, the top motivational speakers exude inspiration in others along their journey. Their eagerness to share their stories and the keys to their success is contagious, lighting a spark in those they speak to, reigniting the idea that life has many possibilities, and success is possible.

Every individual has the ability within him or her to become that symbol of motivation for those around them. Understanding that setting high goals leads to greater success pushes everyone to put out their best effort and then look for ways to improve.

Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

What does it mean to stand your ground? People today are
constantly making commitments and breaking them.  Look at
divorce rates, credit card debts, New Years's resolutions... and
the list of unfulfilled promises goes on.  It it even possible to
keep our commitments?

Stand your ground,  Don't back down.

Joel Penton says, "Yes it is possible" - he knows from
experience.  Like most of your students, Joel was put into
situations in middle school and high school where it would
have been easy to compromise and break his commitments.
However, he chose to rise above the pressure and keep the
committments he made in school, in football, and in life.

Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

Joe will say that it takes character, it takes will, and the road
will be hard.  But his personal experience is proof that ordinary
people can accomplish great things by simply following through
with the commitments they have made.  Your students will be
inspired and reminded of the importance of not just making
committments, but also keep those commitments.

Don't back down.  Stand your ground.
