Wikipedia says that “A motivational speaker or inspirational speaker is a speaker who makes speeches intended to motivate or inspire an audience. Such speakers may attempt to challenge or transform their audiences”. The way that I have always and personally looked at them is, that they are people who are full of shit and who get paid a whole bunch of money, for talking about shit without really knowing their audience. Why? Because a motivational speaker can talk all he or she wants about being strong and making it in life. But what if a person is just suffering from depression and actually needs help and not some dumb ass pep talk, from a rich dumb-ass that don’t know a thing or two about mental health?
Please! Please! Please! Please! Don’t get me wrong now! I’m not trying to be a Debbie Downer or a Negative Nelly here! I just like to be honest about life. The way that I look at motivational speakers is. Who the fuck knows how many unresolved issues and problems they might have in their personal lives, yet they want to motivate others? I mean think about it. Have you ever heard about their personal life struggles? Yes you have, but only the ones that they want you to know about, not the whole story. So why the fuck should I be motivated by a completely fucking liar? The way that I look at it is, that I deal with my shits as they come. I really don’t need a bullshit artist telling me what to do, feel or think. When it is all said and done, at the end of the day, I’m the one that has to deal with my conscience when I go to bed.
With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!
