Five Motivational Talks To Choose From:
Developing A Winning Mindset
Our attitudes are the most important thing about us; more important than our past, money, education, or appearance. Our mindsets determine our future because they determine our effectiveness. The late John D. Rockefeller said, “I will pay more for a person’s ability to get along with other people in life than for any other skill they possess.” In this talk, inspirational and motivational keynote speaker, Dr. Christopher Meade, will share four simple, yet powerful principles of how to turn your mindset into a force multiplier that aids you and others in accomplishing your work, goals and dreams while making authentic friendships all along the way.
The Truth About Change
There are three changes every person can count on this year: new problems, new pressures and new possibilities. Change often evokes negative feelings and anxiety, but it doesn’t have to. The Chinese word for “crisis” is composed of two words: danger and opportunity. Ask any entrepreneur and they will tell you that opportunity lurks wherever there is chaos. Motivational and inspirational keynote speaker, Dr. Christopher Meade, unpacks three non-negotiable attributes that are the antidotes to the challenges that change brings and that each of us face in life and work. Discover these transformational qualities that every forward-looking person must embrace if they are to be successful and happy in their lives and careers.
All great accomplishments begin with a dream. While speaking about the Apollo Space Mission, President John F. Kennedy said, “We choose to go to the moon not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.” Each of us have our own “moon mission” to accomplish in our lives and careers. Fear of failure, self-doubt, the unknown, and limited resources will always try and hold us back from launching forward. In this talk, motivational and inspirational keynote speaker, Dr. Christopher Meade, will inspire and motivate you through stories and images of how men and women throughout history have changed their lives and the lives of others through acting courageously in pursuit of a simple dream. Discover the secret of how you can not just have a dream, but live your dream each and every day.
Moving Forward: The Only Way Out Is Through
With every peak there’s been a valley. For every leap forward, there’s been a stumble back. Every person experiences setbacks and the fear of failure in life; and sometimes the fear of failing is worse than the failure itself! But if we give in to this fear it will hinder us from accomplishing our dreams and living the life we desire to live. And before we know it, we can end up settling for a life of “could of, should of, would of.” Often, the only way out is through! In this talk, inspirational and motivational keynote speaker, Dr. Christopher Meade, shares four essentials for overcoming the fear of failure that will set you on a path to living the good life, a life we dream of living; one that is authentic and with no regrets.
The Heart To Win
Winning first happens with the determination of heart. It’s more often connected to an “extraordinary mindset” than it is with superior ability or talent. This is true not just in sports, but in business and in life. If we come out of the starting blocks with a mindset to lose, we’ve lost even before we’ve started. In this talk, motivational keynote speaker, Dr. Christopher Meade, shares three insightful attributes that winning individuals and teams possess. This motivational talk will energize you and improve your race strategy for life and work as you rediscover how winning is first found in the heart.
