Social media is now a pasture for everyone nowadays to graze on useful knowledge and proper education. With a sizeable majority of people maintaining a good social media presence, it has become easier than ever to watch, hear and learn online. With all the more arising popularity of ‘Social Media Influencers’, a term for people with a prevalent social media coverage and with an interest in a specific subject matter which they deliver to other social media users through videos or written contents, it has become even more imperative to follow the right people on social media and potentially emulate the way they think, speak and act and allow ourselves to become more adaptable to good influences.
The list that follows showcases four top-tier motivational speakers whose social media presence could potentially benefit all Millennials by inspiring a positive way of thinking and a more productive lifestyle.

Sinek is also an instructor of strategic communications at Colombia University.

4. Shiv Khera
Shiv Khera is an Indian author, motivational speaker, politician and the founder of an organization called ‘Country First Foundation.’ Khera has authored numerous self-help books on success, self-improvement and leadership including his international best seller ‘You Can Win’ that has been translated into 21 languages. Shiv Khera has an astounding array of leadership and skill development programs available online and in-house. His seminars and trainings specifically cater to aspiring negotiators, marketers and business people who intend to equip themselves with customer relationship, persuasion and negotiation skills.
His online merchandise store and available programs can be found on his official website here. His Facebook Page also showcases the list of events and training programs he has in the house and his regular posts are mostly dedicated to promoting those events so a fan may not probably be able to spot his short blogs or free online speeches. But his self-help books with proven strategies to achieve better results can be ordered online and his bite-sized motivational quotes are always convenient for those who only want to digest light contents.
It is always a good idea to wake up to social media streaming with an array of inspirational headlines rather than just our friends’ mundane stories. It is even better to have your own social media profile dedicated to learning only, as in a separate Facebook profile only with connections to learning and developing pages or inspirational bloggers. Whatsoever, it does not matter which kind of social media presence you maintain, the only thing that matters is the engagements you make on social media.
