This task can be especially daunting when you reflect on or
discover some of the great minds that have blessed our history
books with the sheer magnitude of their wisdom and inspirational
words. Historical figures like John Lennon, Martin Luther King
and more recently Barack Obama have influenced millions of
people through the power of their words and Lennon and Luther
King still continue to inspire people long after their untimely
deaths. Each of these people has left an imprint on the world with
their Historical Inspirational Speeches.
own inspiration and for a way through life. (Sorry to go of the
track but John Lennon is on of my all time favourite song writers
and poets and he gave some tremendous, unforgettable and an
amazing inspirational speeches within his short life time).
Although these people may be a world away from your own
experience as you sit staring frustratingly at a blank word
document or chewing nervously on the tip of your pen, it is these
people who you have to look towards if you too want to create a
master piece that is respected, admired and remembered
amongst your peers.
Of course I understand that you\u2019re not leading a revolution or a

Lets put this another way. In the next few paragraphs we have
attempted to replicate the thought processes that we have used
to give examples of how vision may be used to write an
inspirational speech. We have then set this out into a logical and
easy to use format that depicts our progress from start to end
this in itself can give you a great deal of edge on someone who
may be creating a farewell speech or a retirement speech. In

be there and in some way they hold some kind of affection for the
Birthday person. This means that one of the hardest parts of
public speaking has already been achieved, and all without doing
a thing..........gaining the public\u2019s attention. This should give you
some confidence as the audience are primed to hear your speech
and are ready to give you their ear.
The best way to achieve this is to have the DJ introduce you so
that all members of the Birthday Party are clear about what is
happening. Although this may go against your nature believe me
it is the best course of action. Remember what we discussed in
everyone can relate to. Remember it is you\u2019re Birthday and your
Birthday Speech, you are allowed to talk about yourself. Families
always have a memory or story that is passed around for all to
