are like Deodorant!
"I don't believe in
traditional motivational speakers.
Motivation is not effective because it
comes from the outside.
Motivation is someone else pushing you to do
motivation, even if you do get excited, the feeling wears out
in 90 days.
That's why I always say
is like deodorant - you need to constantly reapply it because it wears out!
Inspiration is completely
different. Inspiration comes from the inside. From your heart. From your soul.
Inspiration doesn't wear out.

Uplifting and Inspiring" I cannot wait to get back to the office to
send an e-mail to my two sons and share the "Success Tips" I got
from Ruben's Speech. I'd like to see Ruben back next year!"

Seeing Scott Hamilton win the
Men's Figure Skating Olympic Gold Medal in the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics changed
my life. Scott Hamilton lit a fire inside me. Seeing his victory inspired me
to do whatever it took to make my Olympic dream come true. He didn't just
motivate me, he inspired me.
Even though I was never a great
athlete (I was a second stringer in my college soccer team) and even that I
was way too old to pick up a new sport and hope that I could reach Olympic
levels, it was within me. Greatness was within me (like it is will all of us)
but I needed that spark - that magical spark of inspiration to get me to
believe that I could (click here to listen to a 2
minute audio clip of this story).
Many people tried to talk me out
of my Olympic dream. They said it was not realistic. What they did not
understand was that when you are inspired, and when you believe in your dream,
if you want it bad enough the facts don't count. If you are just
motivated, when the going gets tough, you quit.
My audiences buy into my message
and are inspired from my story because I was not a gifted athlete. The fact
that I am an ordinary person who accomplished the extraordinary takes my
audiences excuses away. It gets them to believe that they can do it too. They
are not just motivated, they are inspired.
received more favorable comments than any speaker we've had this year. All of
the members were inspired by his talk. I would heartily recommend your
consideration of Ruben Gonzalez as a keynote speaker."

That's why I don't just
(motivating someone is a piece of cake.) I inspire people. I become that spark that gets the audience members to
believe in themselves and become unstoppable on the way to their goals.
Don't think twice about it. Pick
up the phone, give me a call, and let's chat. Let's find out if I might be the
spark your people need to get them moving to the next level."

"To hear Ruben
Gonzalez relate his experiences as he set his goals to compete in the Winter
Olympics three times, was exhilarating! His tenacity, his commitment to
his goals and his enthusiasm is enough to inspire even the most
disillusioned person to begin a plan of action. His strategy on how to
build a "winning team" that will support and encourage your vision
and goals makes a lot of sense not only in the sports world but in any
area of our lives! Thank you Ruben for sharing your dream with us."
