How do I go about becoming a motivational speaker?
Become a member of the local toastmasters club, you will be trained to speak with your membership and get education on the topic you want to specialize on. Choose a topic you are comfortable with and build on it. Do not try to be a speaker in all topics, you will lose your focus and destroy your chances of becoming a motivational speaker. The motivational speakers you are watching now were not born, they worked to become one. Browse the website and find out what topics or areas they cover and probably get an idea there for yours. Each has his own area that he is well verse on and it is just a matter of widening the knowledge and learns the basics of public speaking.
