The Blog of Jake Kelfer
8 speakers. 1 question. 8 unique answers. I asked 8 motivational speakers who speak on a wide variety of topics one question: If you could leave your audience with only 1 message/piece of advice, what would it be?
Here is what they said:
Jake Thompson - @lifeisworthcompetingfor
"Success isn’t some magic skill, lucky break, or quick process. Success is about showing up and doing the work consistently every day, whether you feel like it or not. It’s about choosing what’s important instead of how you feel in the immediate. Your choices not your talents choose your fate. So Choose to Compete every day for what you want."
Harriet Turk - @harrietturk
"Believe and achieve is only part of the equation. Sometimes you believe really hard, and you don’t get what you want. Doesn’t mean you are a loser. It means you’re experiencing life. So, take some time, look for the lesson, and then figure out what is your plan B."
Dee Hankins - @iamdeehankins
"You can bounce back from any and everything… if YOU want to."
Brian Mayoral - @brianmayoral
"If you can't, you must!"
Kate Garnes - @kategarneslive
"Whatever your dream or goal is, nobody can do it for you. It has to come from you. Nobody can accept your greatness for you. Nobody can love the way only you can. So decide TODAY is the day that you start living unapologetically and go after the dreams only you can go after. "
Patrick Maurer - @pmaurerllc
"You have value. We spend so much time comparing our value or worth to others viewing others strengths as deficits within our own. The sooner we can recognize and accept our own unique value, the better we can feel about ourselves and the more prepared we are to serve those around us in the best way we can."
Heather Schultz - @heatherspeaker
"To be resilient. To get back up. It’s the only way to clearly see the greatness that lies within you and before you."
Joe Beckman - @joe_beckman
"Just. Look. Up! You’ll never remember the quality of time you spent looking down at a screen… you will remember the relationships and connections you make when you look up!"
Whether it’s valuing ourselves, bouncing back, creating human connection, or taking action to pursue a goal, we all have it in ourselves to choose how we respond to our situations. Each speaker speaks to thousands of people a year sharing incredible messages, but no matter how many incredible messages or quotes you hear, it’s up to you to decide the story you want to create! It’s up to you to pursue the life you want to and were meant to live.
Speakers have an amazing way of sharing powerful messages and stories, but the only person who can truly decide what’s best for you, is YOU!
