Secrets of Writing A Persuasive Motivational Letter

Do you have a persuasive motivational letter to write? It could be for just about any reason whether if it’s to a group of coworkers, family members, or landing a new job; some people need motivation. But before you can write a motivational letter, this quick and simple guide will teach you the secrets of writing one. This article is here to guide you through any problem you may have in your approach to writing a motivational letter. But remember, these secret are not a cure-all. It takes a strong desire and motivation into order to… well, write motivational letters.


The first thing you should do is research any information pertaining to the particular situation you are writing on. Be sure to thoroughly review whatever source materials you need in order to make a strong case for your motivational letter. This includes researching books, magazines, and of course, the internet.

Ask Yourself Questions

Ask yourself questions about the situation. You can start with simple questions and move up to the most demanding ones. The key to asking these questions is to be able to answer them in your motivational letter so that the people reading it will fully understand the situation or event that is taking place. They are simple questions you learn in middle school such as who, what when, where, why, and how. Examples of questions include:
●    Who is involved?
●    What are we doing?
●    Where will it take place?
●    Why are we getting together?
●    When will it take place?
●    How can I help the situation?

Make the Reader Smile

First, write about yourself or the organization you are involved in. If it is for a new job, just speak on your credentials and all of the merits. If it is for an organization, speak on the positive experiences and your goals. Remain positive in order to keep the message positive. A positive message always motivates the reader. Who get motivated by downturns and shortcomings? Always write a motivational letter with the intentions of making the reader smile. Nothing says “winner” like a smile.

Explain, Explain, Explain!

Be sure to get your point across and make it your main objective! Explaining why you are doing something and what needs to be done. Don’t give the readers any doubt in what your goals are. If the reader is thoroughly explained, then he doesn’t need to ask many questions. Make you remain on topic and stay detailed. Try not to politely beat around the bush. If you can get to the point, then do so. If you’re going to give them bad news before the good, then do it the right way such as “We had a rough year, but our stock is rapidly increasing as we speak because of all the hard work and dedication you have given the company.” See how easy you can make people forget about the bad news while remaining honest about it. Just flip it. Do not dwell on the low points in a motivational letter. Get to the good stuff. That’s what it’s all about.

Don’t Do It!

Here is a list of what you don’t need to do when it comes to writing a persuasive motivational letter:

●    If it is to your fellow peers who you often see, avoid starting the letter with “Sir” or “Ma’am”. It’s a waste of ink.
●    Don’t go overboard with your credentials and merits. Only listen the things that matter like your degree. Don’t list all of the schools you may have transferred from in the process of getting that degree. That’s what we call too much information and it may not make you seem too consistent.
●    No links or pictures in your persuasive motional letter. That’s too distracting and very unprofessional
●    Do NOT copy and paste your motivational letter. Don’t do it under any circumstance! If you do it once, you’ll do it three times and you’ll end up getting caught. That’s not very motivational…
●    Keep your motivational letter short and to the point. Don’t go out of the way to motivate. A few good words can make a big difference to people.

These secrets can help you write a very persuasive motivational letter. Don’t forget, you’re trying to win the crowd, not lose them. So keep it simple.
