How Do You Get Motivated?

Hi. Welcome to my website. My name is Rebecca. I’m thirty-two years old, single and an executive in a large company. I would love to tell you that I wake up at six o’clock every morning, jump out of bed with a smile on my face and ready to tackle the day. But the truth is I usually wake up a cranky person who would like to crawl back in bed for a few more hours. I have found that if I spend the first few minutes of every day doing something that is motivating to me, it changes my attitude even quicker than a cup of coffee! I have some motivational books that I enjoy reading small excerpts out of. I receive motivational quotes in my email. I also enjoy meditation. I am going share more about motivational techniques. I hope you find it to be helpful.

The Do's And Don'ts Of Hiring A Motivational Speaker For A High School

Blog

High school students can be a tough crowd. The many jokes about how teenagers think they know everything ring true to many people because teens can feel overly confident. At the same time, high school students can make terrible choices that impact the rest of their lives because they are insecure.

A motivational speaker can inspire teenagers to look inside themselves and make smarter choices. It can also help them set goals, make a realistic plan for achieving their dreams, and pursue those goals. Follow these do's and don'ts for hiring a motivational speaker for high school students.

Do Choose a Speaker Who Can Customize a Presentation for Teens

When you are talking to potential motivational speakers, talk about how the presentation will be customized to appeal to high school students. The motivational speaker should be clued in to how teenagers may perceive a message and how to tweak a story to make it relevant to the lives of high school students.

For example, a speaker who usually gives talks to large groups of businesspeople may be very effective at getting employees to go the extra mile for a company. However, the high school audience will be very different, and the speaker needs to customize nearly any part of the speech to be relevant to the lives of adolescents.

Don't Choose a Speaker Who Doesn't Have Experience With High School Students

A motivational speaker who is used to only dealing with adults may struggle with how high school students respond to a speech. Since teenagers can be a very tough audience, the speaker may get embarrassingly emotional or overwhelmed if the person doesn't have previous experience with teens.

Make sure the motivational speaker can handle potential conflicts with your students by asking about the individual's experience with young people. If you're unsure, ask how the person would handle being heckled by rude teens, and you may get to the heart of the matter. Of course, you should try to curtail any potential heckling, but preparing the speaker for the worst is best.

Do Consider the Speaker's Level of Passion for the Topic

A motivational speaker at a high school is tasked with getting teenagers with a variety of challenging dispositions to want to do something. Look at any sample presentations the motivational speaker may have and conduct an interview with the person. While doing so, assess how passionate you think the person is about the topic. If the speaker lacks passion, it will probably be hard for the person to inspire passion in others.

Finally, no motivational speaker will inspire all teenagers. However, you can choose a motivational speaker who is sure to get the attention of many teens. When you take your time to choose just the right motivational speaker for your students, you may reap the rewards many times over with how teens respond to the message and make concrete changes that last a lifetime.
