There’s nothing like sitting in an auditorium with hundreds of like-minded people, absorbing the words of a powerful speaker. If you’ve ever heard Tony Robbins speak in person at one of his events, you know what a profound experience it can be.
There are thousands of inspirational speakers in our world and you can learn from them through in-person symposiums or events as well as through podcasts, videos and audio books. Not to be confused with motivational speakers who make their living by talking to audiences, inspirational speakers are those who have learned life lessons through their careers or unique circumstances and want to pass that information on to others.
By listening to just 20-30 minutes of inspirational speaking a day, you can increase your success and create a more fulfilling life. You can take that a step further by finding books by speakers you are especially touched by, attending their seminars or other events where they are featured or by learning more on their websites.
Here are some of Tony’s favorite inspirational speakers and what you can learn from them.
