Youth Motivational Speakers - Because Being a Teenager is Not Easy

Youth motivational speakers are becoming increasingly important in our society as our youth fall prey to hurtful words. The saying 'Sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me' is a fallacy. Words do hurt, often to a much greater degree than any sticks or stones.

The power of words is immense, and often not completely understood. Even adults often do not realize the power of their words, no matter how small the words may seem; they retain the ability to cause great harm, even when that is not the intention. Therefore, teenagers truly do not grasp the full weight or affect their words may have on those around them. Technology provides a wide forum for words, words often used to hurt others, especially because it is easier to use hurtful words when you are not looking directly at the recipient.

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.
