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.
It rains on the just and the unjust alike. Don’t let the bad times and the showers of life distract you from the vision you have of your future and your life. You have greatness and to let others’ opinions break your dreams is a crime and you commit it against yourself. The showers will come and the struggles will arrive, but remember, “No Test: No Testimony!” You decide your fate. You make it happen. You are the one to help others and lead them through.
It’s the compound effect of helping. The more people you help, the more people they can help, and the more people they can help help. Think this way; you help one. That makes 2 helping, then that becomes 4 helping, then 8 helping, then 16 helping, then 32 and more and more. You don’t know who all will be helped, but you can change the world.
We can be too selfish. We can let our fears and insecurities stop us from helping others because of our belief of what others may belief. Fear is in our head and we are being selfish by not letting others know how we can help them. Our self-limiting beliefs get in the way of changing someone’s life when we are scared to talk and share what we have for them. Don’t let your fears control you. Do what you fear and they will go away and you will help others.
Happy New Year to everyone. Go out and make your life changes, but remember you must do them. Take action in your plans. There is greatness within all of you, but it only goes as far as you Act upon it. If you sit on your couch thinking about things, someone will come along and re-possess your couch. Get out there and make your life happen. Start those resolutions and never give up. 70% of the people who start a New Year’s Resolution stop in the first 3 weeks. Don’t be that person. Make a life change and stick with it. For things to change you must change.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you all. Go out and help others, spread joy, and remember you will multiply the goodness you share with others. We all can make a vast difference through out our world by helping someone every day. Imagine doing something for someone and the compound effect kicks in as they help others and they help others and it keeps going. We can be the change we want in the world. Don’t give up, Keep calm and help others.
