#2: OPRAH WINFREY

Some may not consider Oprah Winfrey a top motivational speaker because although she does speak to the masses and grace many platforms, through her work, you can see her true focus has been shining a light on others and allow the stories and messages of others to be seen and heard. Yet, isn’t that the best way to motivate others, one story may only appeal to one person but someone else’s story that communicates a similar truth, may resonate with another. Also, can we really truly be a master of multiple topics or areas? No, so why not share your stage or platform with like-minded individuals who have mastered other areas of llife. Through first her famous Oprah show to now her OWN network, her multiple books that authored or co-authored and the many movies and tv-series that she has featured in, Oprah continue to touch and inspire the hearts of the masses.

#1: TONY ROBBINS

Without a doubt in my mind, the number one spot has to go to this powerhouse: Anthony Robbins best known as Tony Robbins. His passion for truly inspiring others to live their best life now shines clearly in his multiple best-selling books, audios and cd sets as well as his sold our personal development seminars and trainings. Tony Robbins is truly the life coach focused on enabling others to have the transformation they desire in all areas of their lives and is a gift to this world with what he does.  If you ever get a chance to attend one of his workshops along your personal growth journey, I highly recommend doing it!
