“I do not believe that there is such a thing as motivational or inspirational speaking. I don’t think we really motivate anybody to do anything. Nor do I think we inspire. I think we are sign posts. We are guides. We are guide books. And it is our job to bring to the attention of the individual what the problem area is that they are experiencing and then allow them to motivate themselves. Because if we try to motivate them, we’re taking away value from what we’re doing … and the pleasure they will get from doing it themselves.”
