Just Got Off Stage? Why Congratulations Are In Order

Shawn Byfield leading host speaker and coach

Super Congratulations! You Did It!

Ok… So what did you do exactly?

Here’s what you did: You showed up. You got on stage and shared your passion. You should be extremely proud of yourself! Why?

Because sometimes, those nerves suck.

But look- despite being nervous, you did it! You got up there despite feeling shaky, worried, palms & armpits sweating, thinking you might forget something. I get that. Totally normal.

 But Did You Know?

Did you know being on stage is a really big deal?

Did you know that many people are afraid to just speak in front of their best friends? Or afraid to make a toast? Or get up and talk in front of a group in general?

Meanwhile here YOU are, in front of a crowd of a FEW HUNDRED people you’ve never met, being vulnerable, DANCING, sharing something so personal that means the world to you.

I’m so proud! You got up there and showed the world your bravery.

Yes… YOU ARE BRAVE.

Don’t ever forget that. Remind yourself every day when you wake up and before going to bed. It will make a difference in your life, I guarantee it.

Now Here’s Where We Get Deep:

You have a gift. You absolutely, truly do.

And your gift can make a difference. Want some even better news? Everyone around you has a gift, too. I challenge you to use your gift to inspire others to get on the same stage as you.

Part of your purpose is to SHARE that gift with as many people as possible. Yes sometimes that’s scary…

…BUT! What if you could brighten someone else’s day by sharing what YOU love?

How Would That Make You Feel?

Sometimes, it takes Someone Special Like You to inspire a friend to share THEIR gifts. Because who knows…

…One day they may turn to you and say, “Because of you, I CAN. Because of you, I AM BRAVE. And because you YOU, I can’t wait to do more! Thank you for allowing me to be ME.”

Congrats to you. Keep being brave, because you’re making a difference.

Here’s Why Turkeys Never Win

A THOUGHT:

It’s true, we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. But here’s a secret… People do!

Look the part. If you want people to take you seriously, then a good place to start is by taking yourself seriously.

Make sure your outer world is an accurate reflection of your inner world.

You won’t fly with eagles when you’re dressed like a turkey!

This Is The Simple Way To Not Settle For Ordinary In The 21st Century

JimRohnwisdom

I always notice how one of the most fascinating topics of study is people.

Ordinary VS Extraordinary

Here’s a fun example:

In today’s ever changing and often monotonous world, so many people claim they’re looking for an opportunity to be different. But when someone presents them with an opportunity to be different, those people want to stay the same.

Isn’t that interesting?

My mentor Jim Rohn said it best:

“If you’re not willing to risk the usual you’ll have to settle for the ordinary.”

So many have the potential to do good, be great, and live a happier, more fulfilled life. But having a better life is different than most people, and we’ve been led to believe different is uncomfortable. So many don’t realize their potential simply because… it’s more comfortable to settle and stay the same.

If you want change, you must change.

If you don’t like something, you must change something.

If you want to be extraordinary, you gotta do a little EXTRA!

And if you do nothing, nothing happens.

WOW… Here’s Why ASKHOLES Drive Me Nuts!

askhole Funny, but not funny post. One of the most frustrating people I meet: ASKHOLES.

“Someone who continually asks for advice and does nothing with it”

If you didn’t know this about me already:

I LOVE helping you. I really do.

I know I’m a wired encourager and my purpose is to help others achieve their higher potential. It’s embedded deep in my dna to support anyone trying to make a positive difference on a personal, family, community or global level. I’ll always be on your side, rooting for you to win! However…

…I can only encourage, challenge and cheer you on so much.

I discovered askholes a long time ago, and unfortunately, they still live among us. These people have to be willing to accept advice, stop asking more questions, stop looking for more motivation, stop reading more quotes, stop making excuses and actually IMPLEMENT the steps, strategies, feedback and advice given.

It drives me nuts when someone repeatedly asks what I think they should do, then they go do something else. Why did you waste my time? More importantly, why did you waste yours?

Round And Round They Go

hamsterwheel

It’s like being on a hamster wheel.

Those cute pets* will run and run and run, thinking they’re getting ahead. In reality, even though the wheel goes round and round they’re actually in the same physical place. (*Hairy rodents? Mice with fur?)

Sometimes, askholes don’t even realize their destructive habit. They have to get off the hamster wheel of seeking advice with little intention of implementing, and start DOING.

Read what Darren Hardy has to say about Askholes here.

If you know you’re struggling with this, help is out there. Know that I love you, but I refuse to support your habit! And if you’re not, know that it’s NOT YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to do the work for the askholes around you.

Share this with all the askholes in your life and let’s all grow together,
