“Today, you’ve never been this old before, and today you’ll never be this young again. Right now matters. Be all you can be. You’ll make a lousy somebody else!”

Dan Teaches

motivational speaking“It is not enough to say I will do my best. We must succeed at doing that which is necessary. What is necessary is determined by why we do it. Once we answer why, figuring out the how-to is simple.”

“Reason leads to conclusions, but it is emotion that leads to action. All the information in the world is not going to make a person successful. It’s like the guy who has three PhD’s: one in philosophy, one in psychology, one in sociology – he doesn’t have a job but at least he can explain why!”

“Today, you’ve never been this old before, and today you’ll never be this young again. Right now matters. Be all you can be. You’ll make a lousy somebody else!”

“We can’t coach results, we can only coach behavior. We can’t say, ‘sell more’ or ‘go out and win.’ We can only raise expectations through an attitude adjustment and better our own past best personal performance through perfect practice. Winning then takes care of itself.”

Dan’s Takeaways

motivational speechsThe Next Level of Motivational Speaking

If you can laugh, think, and feel every day, that’s a great day. That also makes for a great speech! Consequently, Dan will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride to a place you’ve never been before, based on the realization that everything required to take yourself and your organization to the next level is already inside of you and your people.

What’s been holding you back is the belief that you must think outside the lines, and think outside the box. But what if the answers are still in the box? Change from the outside in is reactive and creates pressure with a victim mentality. However, change from the inside out is proactive and creates power through an understanding that no matter what our past has been we have a spotless future. Most hate their jobs, and only look forward to Friday instead of Monday.

They think they are paid by the hour, when in reality we are paid for the value we bring to that hour. They think success and happiness are found in programs and processes outside themselves and their organizations, instead of within. They forget that pressure is not something that is naturally there. It’s created when you question your own ability. When you know what you can do there is never any question.

In this mindset, and as a quantifying template for his remarks, Dan builds a four-cornerstone box as a metaphorical reminder that when we answer who we are and why we should, it allows us to become our own motivational speaker and build our lives and our world on the solid foundation of:

  • Perspective
  • Authenticity
  • Service Before Self
  • Commitment to Excellence in All We Do
