Motivational Speaker Ruben Gonzalez on Motivational Speakers

"They're just like Deodorant!"

"I don't believe in traditional motivational speakers. Motivation is not effective because it comes from the outside. Motivation is someone else pushing you to do something. With motivation, even if you do get excited, the feeling wears out in 90 days.

That's why I always say motivation is like deodorant - you need to constantly reapply it because it wears out!

Inspiration is completely different. Inspiration comes from the inside. From your heart. From your soul. Inspiration doesn't wear out. 

Seeing Scott Hamilton win the Men's Figure Skating Olympic Gold Medal in the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics changed my life. Scott Hamilton lit a fire inside me. Seeing his victory inspired me to do whatever it took to make my Olympic dream come true. He didn't just motivate me, he inspired me.

Even though I was never a great athlete (I was a second stringer in my college soccer team) and even that I was way too old to pick up a new sport and hope that I could reach Olympic levels, it was within me. Greatness was within me (like it is will all of us) but I needed that spark - that magical spark of inspiration to get me to believe that I could (click here to listen to a 2 minute audio clip of this story).

My audiences buy into my message and are inspired from my story because I was not a gifted athlete. The fact that I am an ordinary person who accomplished the extraordinary takes my audiences excuses away. It gets them to believe that they can do it too. They are not just motivated, they are inspired.

That's why I don't just motivate (motivating someone is a piece of cake.)  I inspire people. I become that spark that gets the audience members to believe in themselves and become unstoppable on the way to their goals.

Don't think twice about it. If you want your people to be motivated and inspired by an Olympian motivational speaker who has walked the walk, pick up the phone, give me a call, and let's chat. Let's find out if I might be the spark your people need to get them moving to the next level."
