Fancy suits and hundred dollar haircuts

But would they listen to you, follow you, and respect what you have to say if you weren’t wearing a suit, if you didn’t hold a fancy title, if you didn’t look successful in the conventional materialistic fashion or consistently boast of your numerous accolades & accomplishments?

That’s what I want to know of every modern day “motivational speaker”.

Because, to me, so much of the thoughts & lessons motivational speakers share these days appear to simply be taken from other motivational speakers and not actually from the struggle of life experience.

This is like having the answer to advanced math problems without doing the work.

Anyone can do it.

  • 1. Buy a fancy suit.
  • 2. Look “successful”.
  • 3. Repeat the same things everyone else is saying.

I want to see the process that led to the insights and the answers.

No fancy suits or hundred dollar haircuts required.

Be a voice, not an echo.”
