Motivation is a powerful tool that can help us achieve our goals and dreams. But when it comes from an external source, such as a motivational speaker, it can be fleeting and ineffective. This is because the motivation that comes from outside sources is manufactured and artificial, and it doesn't last long. When we hear a motivational speaker make an analogy or tell us to count down from 10 like a rocket, it may be comforting in the moment, but it doesn't provide us with the tools we need to make lasting change.
We need to use our own brains to make decisions and not just blindly follow what these speakers say. Motivational speakers and self-help authors often make money by selling books and giving speeches to desperate people, even though they may not have achieved success themselves. So if a motivational speaker tells you to follow your dreams, it's not necessarily valid advice because their own success may not be related to the quote they gave you. In conclusion, relying on external sources of motivation can be ineffective and short-lived.
To make lasting change, we need to use our own brains to make decisions and take action.
