10 Best Motivational Speakers in India That Will Get Your Audience Into Action Today

To err is human. And so is to feel lost. 

Life for most of us is not one smooth sail. We course through storms, high tides, and navigational mistakes. When you’re in the middle of this mayhem, what can get you through? It is determination, hard work, and courage. It is faith. It is a plan of action. We need to build ourselves and make ourselves capable of weathering the shitstorm (ref: The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A Fuck). One way of doing this would be to draw inspiration from other people and learn from their mistakes. Motivational speakers have the ability to ignite the spark within you. 

But is that enough? A True Motivational Speaker knows what the ultimate goal is - to get the audience out of their minds and into action. Receiving a splurt of inspiration only to make big plans in your head that will never see the light of day is not real motivation. Motivation is when the audience feels that they are ready to embrace their failures. They are ready to start small. They are ready to start. That’s the real win. 


Here is a list of the 10 best Motivational Speakers that will get your audience into action today:

1. Ashish Vidhyarthi

He then moved to a small village in Kerela where he developed a special bond with a cow. Miraculously, he would become cancer-free. Amit Vaidya has chronicled this unique journey in his best-selling book ‘Holy Cancer: How A Cow Saved My Life.’ Now, he is also an Expert Generalist, Wellness Empowerer, Author, and Writer.
