Top 10 Most Inspirational and Motivational People

A person’s motivation is often based on what they believes about their abilities, not on how objectively talented they are. This is according to Albert Bandura,  professor of psychology at Stanford University. His work has shown that people who have perceived self-efficacy (that is, the belief that they can accomplish what they set out to do) perform better than those who don’t.

So, can this self belief be taught? Can people instill motivation in others? Absolutely! After all, teachers, coaches and inspirational speakers do it daily, if fact they are paid to motivate others to do great things.

The following is my own personal Top 10 list of Inspirational and Motivational People, enjoy…

Tony Robbins

Entrepreneur, Author & Peak Performance Strategist

If you have never heard Tony speak, then get off your ass right now and take action to seek him out on his website or on youtube or if you are lucky enough (sadly I haven’t been) get to see him live. He will quite simply change your life!

Jane Blogs

Inspirational Guru Extraordinaire

Jane DoeI have intentionally left this space blank as I am constantly discovering extraordinary people who are doing things in new & exciting ways. People who occasionally turn the norm on it’s head and make me use three letter acronyms like OMG & WTF.

A single quote or blog post from these people can motivate me to take massive action and follow previously unknown paths, that in turn inspire new ideas. Not all of these paths are enlightening, but they do provide valuable experience, even if experience is simply what doesn’t work for me.

Who inspires you?
