I just returned from a four day National Speakers Association
conference in Orlando, Florida with 1600 professional speakers.
We were stretched, entertained, inspired and moved to action.
And here is my top ten take aways:

1.Take the risk to be different.
2.What is your noble purpose? What legacy do you
want to leave?
3.Focus on the bigger picture. You will fall down –
get up and fall back on others.
4.Your audience will forget your content, but not how
you made them feel.
5.Belief comes before behavior. When you have a belief the
behavior will come.
6.Look for the solution, not the problem.
7.People don’t fail, they give up.
8.“Learn to see invisible opportunities when other people
see limitations.”
9.When you tell stories they remind us of our values, aims and
goals. Stories are history that forms the future.
10.“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn, is just to love and be
loved in return.” (song, Nature Boy)

The Coach thinks . . . John Paul Getty was on to something when
he said: “Get up early, Work hard (commitment), and Strike oil!
