Do Motivational Talks Really Work?


“Do motivational talks really work?” I get this question a lot.

This is my 4th article to be featured in the Straits Times and is personally one of my favourite.

Read the truth behind such talks and what value it can bring.

Motivational Talk does not do miracles

Some people hold the unrealistic belief that a motivational talk will deliver a one-day solution that will totally change their lives.

What you do after the motivational talk matters.

It depends on whether you choose to let it happen and then take massive action to achieve your goals.

A motivational talk can create a desire for change, and it will be up to the listeners to decide how they want to change their lives.
