Are you wondering why the phrase ‘inspirational’ is often used? Quite simply, motivational speakers are sometimes called inspirational as it is another way to describe the way they can influence people. Whilst a motivational speaker will ‘motivate’ someone, which could be making someone hit targets and on the other hand, an inspirational speaker will ‘inspire’ those around them.
Whilst they sound very similar, you have to imagine that if someone inspires a person to lose weight, they aren’t motivating them but rather putting the idea that anything is possible into their mind. The big difference is, someone who is inspirational will make you think, and someone who motivates will often give you the tools to succeed at a chosen task.
