The Benefits Of Thinking Positive

From around the age of eleven when I started high school to the age of twenty-two I was not exactly a happy person. One person actually mentioned that I walked around like I had the weight of the world and its problems on my shoulders.

You may be wondering what my troubles were. I developed a speech impediment when I was just a young boy. Stuttering put a huge dent in my confidence and made me withdraw into my shell and the lack of beneficial stuttering therapy didn't exactly help.

I had a weight problem which was mainly caused by comfort eating when I was depressed. Since birth, I have had a bald patch on my head, it is not a large area of baldness, however it was big enough for people to notice and mock me. I was always the shortest person in the class and for a male I am well below the average height at five-foot four. I have struggled in my career working selling air compressors and abac compressors however I am now doing better. 

When I was aged about 18 I enjoyed an evening out with one of my best friends called John. John was one of the people I had always been jealous of for many different reasons. On this particular evening we were both fairly drunk and John had became quite emotional. During our conversation he told me that his father was an alcoholic and that at certain times when he arrived home worse for wear that he would hit his mom. He was very worried about this and was not sure what to do.

I have learnt that we all have problems and that in most cases there is always people worse off than ourselves. I now try to think in a much more positive way and am very happy with the cards I have been dealt.

Inspiration from Motivational Speakers

More and more managers and senior teaching staff have started to realise the major benefits that motivational speakers can bring to their school or workplace. But still many others haven’t yet witnesses the change they can bring about. Whether in school, college, the office or some other work place, motivated people work harder, produce better results and get along better. Prices aren’t cheap: consumers are happy to pay quite a premium for the services of someone with the sought-after ability to inspire and motivate others using positivity. But providing it’s a quality motivational speaker who is hired the return on the investment is clear for all to see.

At work it is often all too easy for individuals to feel that their contribution goes unnoticed and that the work they do does not influence to overall success of the team. It’s forgivable that feeling this way causes employees to become complacent, not try so hard and to produce results that are below what they are capable of. At the same time it isn’t uncommon for resentment and communication breakdowns within the team to begin. Fortunately these problems are really only the result of employees losing track of their aims and their purpose and the problem can be easily solved. Motivational speakers, unlike managers, will not seek to preach or punish but will hand each individual the power to see the importance of their contribution in reaching a shared goal.

Similarly, identifying team members with certain traits, characteristics or qualities is something that the best motivational speakers do. It is often the case that the workers themselves are unaware of their skills or qualities and all it takes is the motivational speaker to show them how to harness their skills to improve the workplace.

Educational establishments tend to use motivational speakers as well. Usually they are a different type of speaker than the ones who speak at businesses. For example they may place emphasis on self motivation. Teenagers particularly often feel helpless and put upon, as though they have little control over their lives. Motivational speakers often relay inspiring personal stories to boost self belief and to make young people see they do have a say in their future. Whilst many motivational speakers address students to motivate and inspire them, others are there to warn them of dangers such as drugs.
