Anyone can spout motivational phrases and sound convincing, but to really believe it is another story. For a good youth motivational speaker, they need to believe in their charges so much that it hurts.

When they say that they believe in every student in the room, and the power they have to change the world, they own those words. When they say it doesn’t matter where you came from or what you have, they mean it.

It’s their willingness to share these stories and keep others from the same fate that makes them motivated. It’s those “He suffered like I did, look at him now moments” that are the real motivation.
