How to motivate like a genius
He started to speak in public after sharing and spreading what he learnt from NLP. As he quickly received requests for talking to more and more audiences, he had to stand up and make it happen.
Speaking skills are not the most important thing to be a motivational speaker. Knowledge is first, which will give you confidence. Then soft skills and empathy: understand the audience, build rapport. Speaking skills are the final element.
You don’t need to be onstage to motivate people. You can start step by step: first writing posts on social media, then talking on the radio, then on TV, and finally motivate as public speaker.
Being in a trip to Europe, Jeeks saw a show by magician Derren Brown using NLP principles to convince people in the audience to give him their wallets. Astonished by this, Jeeks started to explore NLP, which is a personal development technique. He soon became an expert and even published a book.
How he established several companies
Break the big goal of building a company into smaller objectives. First, start with a good idea and make a market research. Have partnerships, which will bring confidence and motivation. One needs to be a good speaker, act like the public figure of the business. You need a lot of motivation and self-confidence.
