Have You Got Your Speach Ready?

Imagine this,

You have finally achieved your goal. This should not be a stretch of the imagination, as it’s a given that you can do it. All the same humour me. So, there you are on stage in front of hundreds of people, accepting your award. As you step up too say a few words, you look over the crowd. Then you see that it is filled with a couple of people you know. No that’s not quite true, The crowd has ALL the people you know. What to say???? And you think to yourself there are two types of people. Each will have a conversation with themselves.

Type A: “I helped him/ her along their way”.

Type B: “I knew deep down that they would make it”.

The thing is that you stop and think. Both types of people were critical in helping you get to where you are now. Those that offered what appeared as no help, were critical in making you stronger, more determined, more resilient.

You clear your throat and say “THANK YOU EVERYONE!” And you mean it. You realize that you need them all equally.

So take a moment, on your journey to say a thank you to everyone you meet. As they have brought you to this point. Remember, you are more powerful than you could ever imagine.

It’s so simple but true.

What Does That Thing You Want Look Like?

What are you looking for

A wise man without a map will get lost in any country. Where as a fool with a GPS will not!

Seems that more and more people are ‘looking for something…..’. Whether it be a new job, partner, opportunity or whatever. Then a question hit me : Do you know precisely, what this thing looks like”? If you do not know precisely, then how will you know when it is right in front of you?
Take a time as you go through your day to ponder this thought. The clarity that it will give you will act as a map. It will give you a clear destination. From that, you can decide which route you are going to take to get there.

Success is a journey; not a destination.

As always- if any part of this resonates with you please pass it on. Empower someone
To grow into the person they should be.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.

BE THE BEST PART OF SOMEONE’S DAY

This weekend I was in Las Vegas. I know, right, me the guy that doesn’t gamble. I was one of two guys who were the surprise for a good friend’s 50th Birthday. That was amazing but only the first part of the story.

Picture the scene, we’re in a limo and I here a beep…………..beep………….beep. I ask the rest of the people around me but they laugh that it’s the alcohol talking (I don’t really drink either. Don’t ask).  as the ride goes on I hear it again……beep. I look around and find a brand new iPhone 5S. I tap on the glass and hand it to the driver. We talk and we realise that it must be from the previous guests. I leave him my phone number and tell him to get it back the them and hand them my card.

For those of you that are wondering why I left my card, read my blog ‘Only in Calgary’. I lost my phone and had it returned to me. But I never really got to say thank you to the guy that found it. So by leaving my phone number, the owner could contact me if they were so inclined.

Two days went by and I had forgotten all about. I fly home and just as I arrive home the phone rings. What happens next was one of the nicest phone calls I have had in a long time. The man at the other end was very emotional. As we agreed, it’s not about the phone. There are memories that he could not replace.

We left the call agreeing that we would both continue to ‘pay it forward’.

Go out there and be the best part of someone’s day! It feels great!!!!!

DIG YOUR WELL BEFORE YOU’RE THIRSTY

Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty

I have the honor of your attention for a few minutes. Thank you.  What does that mean to you?

  •  What if you’re an athlete? It could mean ‘work on your stamina, before you are thrown into the big race.
  • To a student – Study hard before a test.

For me, I’m taking a course to help me motivate thousands of people. Do I have thousands of people waiting to hear me? Am I ready to lead them? Maybe not. But this is preparation for the crowd that’s coming.

The pen in the picture was presented to me for a two-minute speak I gave. I am in training to help mentor the crowd that’s coming. You know what’s coming; what you’d like to do. Don’t leave it until it’s too late to start. Get your shovel and get busy! I never take for granted that you have read this far. Smile as I am whilst writing this. You have a goal that you NEED to achieve! Get busy; get it done before you need it.

When your opportunity comes, make sure you are ready.  As always, I didn’t post this to sit on a server somewhere. Go take it and inspire someone!
