“I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community…as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die. For the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life, for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me; it is a splendid torch, which I’ve got hold of for the moment. And I want to make it burn as brightly as possible, before handing it on to future generations.” George Bernard Shaw
As you enter the new year and complete another year it is good to reflect. I have a question for you that may help guide you in this exercise. How do you view your life today? Is your life like a candle…or is it a firey torch? How would your partner or close friends describe it? Is it just flickering or is it burning brightly?
Throughout your life, we’ve all had many opportunities and privileges of life in such a free land as America. As a motivational speaker you will experience some of the most rewarding work in speaking to people and helping them find motivation and inspiration in their lives… to help light their flame. In becoming a motivational speaker you get impact the lives of others and share hopes, fears, strategies, laughter, and warmth with your audience. All men and women who enter this profession will not only be a giver but you’ll receive countless, remarkable blessings and you absorb the qualities in others that you meet along the way. Do you make an effort every day to make sure your internal flame is burning brightly? When you do this people take note and it will be the key to your success as a motivational speaker. Olympic flame gets passed on from one person to the next, I, too, in my speaking job want to honor others and hand to them some of the inspiration I’ve been given.
