In this age of globalization, life’s no longer simple. There’s always a latent pressure to excel in every field—be it in pre-schools for the toddlers, in high schools, at office—and the situation gets worse. To let people cope with the “pressure-cooker” situations, many schools and colleges hold sessions with the motivational speakers. These speakers not only “motivate” them to do better but also, with their easy-going—sometimes, even funny—speeches, relax them from their dilemmas and troubles.
