Today I heard Dr. John Demartini speak to a room of over 400 Speakers on the topic of “Success of High Achievers”.
He challenged me to think as to whether I was “sitting in the shadow of giants or on the shoulder of giants”?
Am I living an authentic life that helps me to achieve to my peak performance on a daily basis – or am I allowing certain outer influences and inner thought patterns to hold me back?
He shared about the 5 “S’s” of Leaders:
As he left the stage to a standing ovation, I reflected on Dr. Demartini’s words and looked back over my actions throughout 2013.
I have attended 5 conferences in the USA and Canada, and attended 9 meetings of the NSANZ in Auckland. I have invested over $20,000 on my personal education and networking. I have flown 20 times and I have heard over 180 hours of presentations and combined wisdom.
And now, as I prepare to depart from Vancouver, where I have invested 4 days with over 400 delegates at the Global Speakers Summit (GSS2013) that was organised by the Global Speakers Federation (GSF), I start my conference planning for 2014 with the National Speakers Association of Australia’s (NSAA) convention in Melbourne on my horizon.
I walk taller and more confident as I look back at a year that was marked by my appointment to the President’s Advisory Council for the John Maxwell Team, the Presidency of the Auckland Chapter of NSANZ and now the NZ-representative role for the GSF. And I know that I will positively impact over 1 Million households around the world!
Once you value you, you increase the probability of your cause growing!
I encourage you to join me during 2014 at NSAA in Melbourne and start to sit on the shoulders of giants!
