Tony Robbins has a commanding presence. Robbins is a very passionate speaker that loves helping people achieve their goals and to get more fulfillment out of their lives.

Most motivational speakers are mainly fluff and not much substance. However, Robbins understands the psychology of success. “Long ago, I realized that success leaves clues and that people who produce outstanding results do specific things to create those results,” said Robbins.

He begins his speeches by starting with basics such as what do you want to accomplish in your life and why do you want to achieve that goal. Then, Robbins goes into more detail about techniques and concepts that can help you achieve your goals.

2.Eric Thomas

Eric Thomas (motivational speaker) – Alchetron

A high school dropout. A homeless man. And now? Probably the most passionate motivational speaker ever. If we all had as much passion as him, we would be on another level. He can motivate you to another level; his speeches are intense. I would suggest to every person that’s alive at this very moment and can still breathe to check out some of his speeches – You won’t be disappointed!

Thomas does not sugarcoat anything. He is nicknamed the hip-hop preacher, and he is as blunt as a rapper. Thomas also talks about how it may take years to accomplish your definition of success. But, if you are truly committed to your goals and willing to make the necessary sacrifices, you will be successful.

My favourite quote from ET –  When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.

4. Nick Vujicic

I don’t know if there is a person who wouldn’t get inspired while listening to Nick. Nick Vujicic was born with no arms and no legs. He is a euphoric man, and he lives life with joy. He is also a funny guy with a good sense of humour. And Vujicic tells jokes in his speeches and pokes fun at himself.

He teaches the importance of determination and never giving up. And quitting is not in his vocabulary. He believes nothing is impossible. And Vujicic stresses the value of not focusing on what you cannot do instead of concentrate in life on what you can control and what you can do.

My favourite quote – The challenges in our lives are there to STRENGTHEN our CONVICTIONS. They are NOT there to run us over.

5. Les Brown

In an abandoned building, Les Brown was born with his twin brother Wesley on February 17, 1945, in a low-income section of Miami, Florida. He was subsequently given up for adoption and adopted by Mamie Brown, a 38-year-old single woman who worked as a cafeteria attendant and domestic assistant. He was declared “educable mentally retarded” while in grade school. Despite the obvious self-esteem issues this created, with the encouragement of his mother and assistance from a helpful teacher in high school, he learned how to reach his full potential, a key point in many motivational speeches he gives now.

Brown speeches focus on the importance of having a strong belief in yourself. And he teaches that you need to be bold and have supreme self-confidence. Brown also believes many people that set goals are setting their bar too low. ” Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss. But, because they aim too low and hit,” said Brown.  –
