Motivational Humorous Speakers Can Help People – One Laugh At A Time

Funny. Would that be the first word to come to mind if you were told that you were going to be hearing a speech by a motivational speaker? It’s not likely. After all, we’ve all come across motivational speakers in one form or another (even if it was just on television) and funny isn’t really what they’re known for. Instead, the image drummed up by the phrase “motivational speaker” is one of a man in a business suit who is clearly trying to sell you something that you don’t need, preying upon your sense of inadequacy in some area to schmooze you into buying his product or service.
But this is not always the case. Not every motivational speaker is the upscale equivalent of the door-to-door salesman. In fact, there are motivational humorous speakers out there who make use of a good sense of humor and the charm that they have with crowds to get you laughing and enjoying yourself. Attending an event by one of these speakers is almost like going to see a stand-up comedian. Sure, it might cost a little bit more, but you’re actually a lot more likely to take something away from the experience.
The thing is that if you’re going to see a motivational speaker, it’s probably because you’re at least somewhat interested in his or her product or service. Maybe you just want to get productivity up in the office and you’re hoping this person can inspire some ideas among your group. Or perhaps you’re working through a difficult time personally and you need a lift. But you enter the room with a wary eye because you’re afraid that you’re going to be sold something. The motivational speaker who uses humor as the cornerstone of his speech helps you to let your guard down. You don’t become naïve, you just become relaxed.
When you laugh, you become more open to life. You feel more receptive to the possibilities around you because you are happy. You are looking kindly upon that which is around you. And so the motivational humorous speaker taps into that and helps you get ready to hear what he or she has to say. Motivational speakers can be used for all kinds of different events and purposes, but if you aren’t willing to listen, you aren’t going to benefit from what they have to offer. That’s why those who employ humor are the ones who are most successful at their jobs. And when someone’s job is to get you motivated, you want them to succeed!
