Motivational speaking is something that can be done just about anywhere, on a local, national or worldwide stage. There are motivational speakers that visit classrooms and schools, give speeches to local crowds city wide and set the nation and world on fire towards unifying goals and principles. All kinds of different subjects are covered by motivational speakers, and they inspire so many people to do great things. Who are the most popular motivational speakers in the US and the world?
When you look at the lists for the best motivational speakers, you’re going to see many different opinions. There are so many different people with various backgrounds and stories to tell. You might first think of a few prominent politicians like John F. Kennedy or Ronald Reagan. However, think about the rags to riches stories, such as Eric Thomas. Eric Thomas is also current.
Picking the best motivational speakers depends on three factors. Are you counting the people that are no longer with us? There may be people that are still with us, yet they aren’t active. Then, there are of course the people like Eric Thomas that have a YouTube channel or are current in whatever way they reach out to a worldwide audience. These days, there are so many ways for people to reach others.
One of my favorite motivational speakers of all time is a preacher. His name is Billy Graham. This guy was always so special to watch when I was growing up, and it’s not just me that thinks that. Millions of people watched Billy Graham and went to his crusades for Christ. He definitely has to be on the list of the best all time in my opinion.
What about Dr. Wayne Dyer? This is someone you might not have heard about. Or, maybe you have. As I said, there are so many people that have interesting stories and are known for giving motivational speeches. This guy actually went to school for counseling, began teaching and then went on to be considered one of the best motivational speakers of today’s world.
Our current president in the US, Barrack Obama, is said to be one of the best motivational speakers, too. There are of course tons of women who are considered to be some of the most popular motivational speakers as well. Have I mentioned any of your favorites yet? It can be really difficult to make selections when there are so many to choose from.
What about Brian Tracy? You might also be thinking about actors and actresses that have spoken out on various issues time and time again. Think about Morgan Freeman, who doesn’t give speeches, but whose voice is authoritative and motivational. He often does give his opinion on certain issues, and he was recently voicing an ad for Hillary Clinton for President. Let’s not forget about the motivational speakers who are known simply for being just that and might not be recognized by everyone. Every motivational speaker is valued because they inspire others to do great things.
