This is my Toastmasters Professional Speaker Seminar speech.
Today, I ask that you suspend disbelief and image you are avid game players. You love to learn new things and how to associate those skills with life.
Steve Brown has been a gamesman for most of his life and 16 years ago he discovered something; a new love that changed his thinking and his way of life.
Steve has spent many hours; days and nights circled with other players, listened to hours of instructions, read numerous books and shared his knowledge and skills with new and old players alike.
Today he is here to share a small portion of what he’s learned with you.
He wants you to know; America’s Game.
In 6 months, you will be 6 months older, but will you be in better shape? Will you have extra money? Will you weigh less? Start today to build your future; to make a better life for you family. Today is a Good Morning to Get Started and open yourself to greater things.
We forget that everyone has a story and we don’t realize that nearly everyone is comparing themselves to other people. Sometimes this motivates us and sometimes it cause self-limiting beliefs. Don’t compare your Behind The Scenes film to someone’s High-Light Reel.
Speaking of getting in shape and losing weight…and getting those big muscles: I Challenge you to join me in the Project 10 Challenge.
I’ve had a tendency to talk without putting my actions in place. I’ve allowed life’s normal ‘change’ to control my decisions and that needs to stop. Time to not fear change, but decide to be more; To decide to act and be what I want. Don’t let others dictate your role in life and act to create the change you want. Create the change you know is needed and wanted. Make your life. Start living.
You can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do. -Henry Ford
How often have we stopped ourselves from helping others because we worried about our feelings? So many times we create a story in our mind that talks us out of our greatness. Have No Regrets by doing the right thing every time to help others and expand our lives and theirs. Don’t let your self-limiting beliefs talk you out of changing someone’s future for the better.
Be The person you want to be. Don’t let your limiting beliefs stop you from being that wonderful Greatness you have inside. It is said, Hell is meeting the person you should have been, but didn’t decide to be. Have you met that person? I have. It’s upset me, but I’ve learned we have an “AND” life. He can have a great life AND I can have a great life. We can be charitable AND Rich. We can help others AND be well off. We can sacrifice AND have a great life. Our Goals are still there AND we can reach them.
Together We Can Bring More Money to Our Town by spreading out advertising. We can help our employees by giving them a benefits package. We can help each other by growing OUR business and working TOGETHER getting outside money to our town. My plan calls for each of our businesses connect with the outside world and then helping our employees save and earn on their own. Greatness is within us and sharing that greatness will get others to spend their money with us.
Events help make life changing decisions. People will see more and they can grow more at an event by seeing and feeling the passion and with that passion their belief grows and with belief comes change.
