Ironically, I am considered or called a motivational speaker. I've never liked that label. We INSPIRE action or change. We don't motivate. CNN legal and social commentator and "motivational" speaker, Mel Robbins, gives a great talk on this topic.
mo·ti·va·tion ˌmōdəˈvāSH(ə)n/noun: the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.
Motivation is not an external force. It is an internal desire, hunger or need to change something. The only "motivation" you can gift a person is to empower them with confidence and belief or hope that they can do or achieve something because they have the tools or the potential.
