Honestly, I just let the time fly by. So much has happened in the past year. I got married to lovely lady, Gretchen. My son graduated from High School and has gone onto Murray University. He’s doing well and it’s been an interesting change for the family. But, a good change. My daughter is working full-time and is getting ready to move out on her own.
But why has it been so long? A combination of things distracted me to say the least. The biggest situation has been the diagnosis on my father; Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Sadly, it’s hit him pretty hard and it’s been my job to take care of him. I don’t mind, but it does require me to change some priorities. Such is life. He’s staying positive and does his treatments a couple of times a month and it’s noticeably taking it’s toll on his body.
What I ran into felt like a waking dream. I just didn’t realize how much time was passing from my last post to now. I would check my site and just didn’t notice it had been Sept of 2016 for my last post. However, things are back in motion.
This has been a big change. How big? Recently, my wife has moved to Pennsylvania and I’ve been spending time up there. This has caused me to separate from my full time job to help take care of Dad and be able to spend time up there with her. I’ve been fortunate in this change and I’m excited to see what the future holds.
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.
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.
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.
Don’t let the trials and tribulations of life derail you from what you are building. Your family needs you to focus on the path that is in front of you to enlighten them. The path to a great future for them and you. But, if we let the sickness get in and the self-limiting beliefs in, the distractions can hurt you and your progress. As Winston Churchill said, “When you are going thru Hell…Keep Going.” Don’t take your eyes off the big picture and the long term. This is a marathon, not a sprint.
BrownSupport.com Ep 62. Convention Highlights: Tiffaney Mallot on Baggage. We have to get rid of the baggage we bring over from our past. The baggage of Hate, Envy, Fear, Shame, even our Family can be the baggage that stops us from giving our 100% to building and finding out success. Work to detach our Emotions from your system. It can be the key needed to propel you forward. As always, Eric Worre brought together an amazing group of speakers and Tiffaney Mallot is one of the best.
Unchain the Elephant. This month’s Success Club brought me a great book to get thru your limiting beliefs and let your passion loose to move you further and make the life change you desire. Erik Wahl helps you expand your personal belief and opens you to gaining and fighting for your success.
The only thing stopping me was distractions. I let the excuse of life stop me from creating a beautiful future for my family. My internal fears and limiting beliefs talked me out of my greatness. Don’t let your fear control you. Fear is our imagination. It’s not real.
Tonight at Toastmasters, I gave a speech on Building Confidence in Speaking. This can used for any speaking, from meetings to a friendly neighbor or someone on your “Chicken List”. We all can be confident.
I admit, it’s weird to post twice in one day, but I had so much happen in my life.
