Here’s SOMETHING You Can Try To Defeat Daily Negative News

I work hard to make a positive contribution to this planet in all that I do. Period.

Bringing joy to people’s lives, removing doubt, building confidence, and setting a positive example is being part of the SOLUTION. I refuse to be part of the problem and seen as a stereotype. I resist being typecast, there’s enough of that on TV. I refuse to let these daily negative news stories derail me from my purpose.

But I gotta say, as each week unfolds, it’s becoming more and more challenging to climb this mountain…

Anybody feel me?

Here’s what I try to do. Maybe it’ll help someone reading this:

The quickest way to make a difference is to be actionable. Every day, DO SOMETHING that makes people remember their purpose. DO SOMETHING that brings joy to lives. DO SOMETHING to remind people that good still exists. DO SOMETHING to enrich your community. DO SOMETHING to nourish your own soul and fill your well, so you can pour into others. DO SOMETHING to remind the media that for every 1 negative story, there’s 99 positive ones happening right under your nose you deserve to hear about.

Don’t fall in the trap of aimlessly trolling social media just to comment, judge, and expand hate. You’re better than that, we all are.

* Sigh. *

Dear Bob Marley, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye, we need your songs right now.

Through all this heartache around us, I encourage you to be a difference maker. We need to fight for what’s right, and it starts by being a positive light in your family and community. DO SOMETHING to enrich people’s lives every time they meet you. DO SOMETHING to exchange smiles.

Be a teacher, and share a vision of admiration, of connection, and of hope. Be a student, and ask what it takes to bring peace not just to others in your circle, but also to yourself- because sometimes the toughest battle is held in that small space between your ears.

I need every human reading this to FIGHT to be a part of the solution! Because you deserve it.

Who’s in?

If you’re in, share something of VALUE below. No rants. No pointing fingers. No them vs us. No hashtags. Take a moment to say something GOOD, because that’s what the world needs right now.

The Beatles had it right when they sang all we need is ____. You have the power to DO SOMETHING about it, so share some!

Want To Do What You Love? REALITY: You Don’t Need Permission

Shawn Byfield speaks from the stage.

Want to do what you love? You can!  But you gotta stop asking  other people “can I start now?” before taking a chance on yourself.  The reality is: placing your power in others to give you a green light won’t help you move forward.

Go. Do You.

Make today the day you stop waiting for someone else to give you permission to do what you love! Life is short. Do what you love. I have no regrets and I want you to win!

This Is The Congratulations That High School Graduates Need To Hear

Motivational public speaker in Canada Shawn Byfield

Nowadays, high school is TOUGH. Times HAVE changed.

Every year I see stressed, discouraged, uninspired students who have a lot to deal with. A lot of it surrounds home life balance and support structures. Students have non-school stuff going on that they rarely tell others about- family issues, relationships, mental health, relocations, and more.

Many times you’re forced into adulthood sooner than expected.  You could have chosen to pack up and quit, but you didn’t. You saw it through.

High school is our first major LIFE exam, and the best news is… you passed! What you learned in the last few years of high school will significantly influence the person you’ll become tomorrow. YOU can, and will make a difference. Congratulations! And WELL DONE.

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.
