Preparation techniques to see your projects, goals and dreams through to success
  • Preparing properly is often the key to success. Whether we are going on vacation, implementing a new marketing plan or stepping in the ring to fight, preparation will drastically improve the experience. However, we have all started projects and not finished them, or worse, not started because we weren’t sure we could finish. We have all been discouraged during pursuit of a goal and felt lost when thinking of how to achieve our dreams.  This keynote will explore how to systematically use preparation to realize your ambitions.  Proper preparation builds confidence, saves time, impresses the customer and leads to better opportunities.
    • Preparation techniques to see your projects, goals and dreams through to success will explore:
      • How to prepare for what you can’t see coming
      • How to keep procrastination from costing you your life
      • How to make your efforts more valuable
      • The process of completing projects and accomplishing goals
      • What to do when you can take no more
      • What to do when you lack the resources you need
The Importance of Setting Goals and What it Takes to Accomplish Yours
  • Setting and reaching goals is the cornerstone to an abundance of success stories. Whether personal or for business, goals help us stay focused and reach new heights. Unfortunately, it’s easier said than done. It’s extremely difficult to accomplish far reaching goals. We can get burnt out, lose interest or run into obstacles that seem impossible to overcome. This keynote will explore why goal setting drastically improves our chances at success and enhances our everyday life. Setting and achieving goals gives us purpose, a sense of accomplishment and the confidence to pursue greater endeavors.
    • The Importance of Setting Goals and What It Takes to Accomplish Yours will cover:
      • How to set a goal to increase your probability of success (align goal with dreams, values, how to choose goals etc.)
      • Rules, tips and tricks for accomplishing your goals
      • Why successful goal setting will improve many aspects of your life (improve confidence, give us purpose, improves our thought process for success in other areas)
      • How proper goal setting affects our mind ( increase effort and focus, persistence)
      • What to do after we accomplish our goals (assess the process used is there a better way, celebrate, set new goals with energy of success from last goal.)
Make the Choice to Choose to Make the Right Choice
  • Our success and failure relies on several factors, but the most consistent and controllable are the choices we make every day. It is easy to gradually slip into bad habits, develop thinking patterns that inhibit our potential and “accidentally” avoid reaching our goals, just by making a few choices we don’t realize are detrimental to our success. The same is to be said of the opposite, it only takes a few choices to drastically change our lives for the better. This keynote will explore why “choice” is integral in everyday life and how it affects our success. Making well thought out choices will prevent mistakes, increase profits, build self-control and drastically limit regrets.
    • Make the Choice to Choose to Make the Right Choice explores:
      • How to simplify difficult choices
      • Valuable resources for decision making
      • Why consistency matters in decision making (making the wrong choice makes it easier to do it again in the future Ex: diet, exercise),
      • Choosing a better future (explore instant gratification)
      • One choice that fits every situation (choose to be happy or sad)
How to Use Teamwork to Build Your Team
  • Teams are an integral part of our life from an early age. Family teams, school teams, sports teams, working together or in teams is a huge part of our culture. We work together for many reasons. It fosters teamwork and learning, we enjoy camaraderie and our efforts together are greater than if we were to compile our separate efforts. That said, we all know what it’s like to be a part of a losing team with dysfunction and a lack of teamwork. This keynote will cover “team” from every angle, with useful tools on how to improve as an individual and as a group. The best teams get more done, win more games, have great friendships, resolve conflict constructively and have a common goal.
    • How to Use Teamwork to Build Your Team Will Cover:
      • Specific strategies on how to improve teamwork
      • Why the individual has value amongst a team
      • How to resolve conflict constructively
      • The importance of roles in a team
      • Why fun is essential to success
      • The cornerstone of teamwork, communication & trust
Find Opportunity and Thrive Amongst Change
  • Change presents itself in all shapes and sizes. Whether good or bad, big or small,we can be sure it will happen. Change is difficult because it’s generally unknown and out of our control. That said, change is the result of progress and has to happen for our aspirations to become reality. Change makes the world go around, however devastating or amazing it may be.  This keynote will explore the ups and downs of “change” and how to constructively deal with the transition. Knowing how to handle change paves the way for improvement,increases our flexibility, uncovers opportunity and much more.
    • Find Opportunity and Thrive Amongst Change explores:
      • The benefits of both wanted and unwanted change {Build strength, flexibility, opportunity, etc.)
      • Getting through difficult change
      • How to use change to create opportunity
      • How to anticipate and control change (setting goals helps control change)
      • The facilitation of personal growth through change (learning, getting stronger,Building confidence for next change)
What You don’t Know About Having a Positive Attitude
  • From an early age, especially in sports, we are told to stay positive. That’s because a positive attitude literally improves our quality of life. It can result in increased creative thinking, motivation, energy and countless other benefits. However, consistently staying positive can be very difficult. We experience painful, irritating or even expensive situations every day that can make staying positive seem impossible. This keynote will explore why staying positive is a pivotal skill to improve every aspect of life. A positive attitude improves happiness and likability, builds confidence, increases productivity and reduces fear of risk.
    • What You Don’t Know  About Staying Positive will explore:
      • Unique benefits of staying positive
      • Practices on how to stay positive when times are tough
      • How to increase our success through positivity
      • The science behind why a positive attitude works
      • How to use positivity to help others
