Speaking Engagements

Speaking Engagements

I have been speaking professionally since 1999 when I began working with Professional Organizations and with Continuing Education programs for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors. The message I bring is one of inspiration. It is easy to get caught up in what I call a ‘default’ life. You wake up every day and follow the same routine. Today looks like yesterday, and tomorrow will look like more of today. Then there is the weekend. Just as the group Loverboy sings, ‘Everybody’s working for the weekend.”

I see it in the faces of the people I work with, the people I meet. They are living lives of quiet desperation. They want more, and yet they are exhausted with frustration and by the demands of the day-to-day routine. It breaks my heart to watch the pain in their eyes. I hear the ‘reasons’ why, the life situations, the childhood traumas. I hear all the causes for why the light has dimmed from their eyes. And that is why I speak, and what I speak to.

There is no reason to let the past define your future. There is no manual for life…but      there is Google. And with Google, you can find the answer to any question you have…The Information Super Highway…remember that? Now called the Internet. In all of history, there has never been a better time to be alive.  And then there are Life Coaches.

In this day and age, there is no reason why we cannot each live the life of our dreams. Say goodbye to the pain, to the frustration, to the anger and to the disappointment, or to whatever it is that holds you back. Get up and Seize the Day….Carpe Diem. As Mel Robbins says, “Five, Four, Three, Two, One…Blast Off!” It’s a new day!

Whether you have a personal interest group or a professional organization, you will benefit from a presentation that will rock your world. You will never be able to look at the world the same way again. And there will be homework! Nothing happens until you take ACTION!

 

Nelson Mandela’s 1994 Inaugural Address
Written by Marianne Williamson

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It is not in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fears,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
