Top 10 Motivational Speakers to see in 2011

If you are to invest in your personal development and business growth this year and take control of your financial destiny,  consider taking seminars with top experts. There is no better way to learn how to do something in the best possible way and avoid mistakes, than to learn from somebody who has achieved what you are looking to achieve and are now paying to forward by teaching others.

It actually saves you time and money to learn from people who have spend years learning the best ways to do what has to be done for success and have achieved the desired success themselves. I have carefully compiled a list of the 10 most influential motivational speakers/authors of our times, all of them high achievers in their own life and businesses with incredible stories about how they personally succeeded, most of them starting from very adverse conditions.

Why investing in a seminar one of the most valuable investments you can do for your success? Ask one of these top achievers or any other highly successful person that you admire, if they have invested in their learning and growth as persons and business owners by buying specialized knowledge from other successful people, and find out one of the biggest secrets to fast success: learning from other experts.

As an additional bonus, by going to one of these seminars with top motivational speakers and authors, you have the chance to meet and network with hundreds of other like minded people, which could positively impact your life and business growth.

T. Harv Eker Top Motivational SpeakersUsing the principles he teaches, T. Harv Eker went from zero to millionaire in only 2 1/2 years! T. Harv Eker’s motto is “talk is cheap” and his unique ability is getting people to take “action” in the real world to produce real success.

Eker is the author of the best-selling books, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and SpeedWealth. He has also developed several highly-acclaimed courses such as The Millionaire Mind Intensive, Life Directions, Wizard Training and Train the Trainer. He is also the producer and trainer of the world-famous Enlightened Warrior Training.

T. Harv Eker is the son of European immigrants who came to North America and money was very scarce through his childhood so he worked many jobs as a teen. In his early adult life, after many years of working hard to achieve success and failing in everything, he finally hit the jackpot and earned his first million with a fitness stores business. However, in less than two years, the money was gone and Eker was back where he started from.

It was at that point that Eker began developing his theories about people’s mental and emotional relationship to money. He realized that his “inner-money thermostat” was set for a specific amount of financial success, and that everyone else had a financial set point too. His most profound discovery was that this money blueprint could be changed. Using the principles and practices found in his book, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, Eker reset his own blueprint to not only create success, but to keep it and grow it, and become a multi-millionaire.

During his years of struggle, Eker vowed that should he ever get rich, he would help others do the same. He has kept his promise. Today, he is the president of Peak Potentials Training, one of the largest and fastest-growing seminar companies in the world. He has already touched the lives of over nearly 1 million people so far, helping them move closer to their goal of true financial freedom.
