Have you ever wondered what makes some speakers achieve extraordinary high impact results, while others can’t seem to break free from their lackluster uninspiring results?
Since I started speaking in 1999, I have learned a lot from watching other speakers, as well as the priceless lessons I have learned from my own success stories (and numerous mistakes too!).
A huge part of a speaker’s success is your mindset. As easily as it can be used to lift you up to new heights, it can easily and quickly take you out of your game, too!
Let’s talk about how you too can Conquer the MENTAL GAME of SPEAKING. When it comes to speaking, the Average Speaker is steeped in doubt, fear, confusion, and uncertainty, while the Extraordinary Speaker is fully alive, ready and eager for the next challenge.
Average Speakers present on things they don’t love to talk about. EXTRAORDINARY SPEAKERS follow their passion and wouldn’t do it any other way.
Average speakers present on topics they don’t love. In most cases, they are doing it solely because it creates a sense of financial or personal security. They are driven by the need for money and to feel financially secure. Ultimately, they believe that speaking never leads to an abundance of passion and profit at the same time.
Extraordinary speakers know that one of the smartest and quickest strategies to speaking success is doing what they love and finding a way to monetize it. When a speaker is driven by their passion, nothing can stand in their way. They become unstoppable. They truly understand what Joseph Campbell meant when he said “Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”
Average speakers set low expectations so they’re never disappointed. Rich speakers are always up for the next big speaking challenge.
Average speakers listen to others who advise them to set low expectations for their life to ensure they are not disappointed or hurt in the process. The need for safety and security shows up in every area of their presentation from how they create their content, to their delivery style, to how often they are willing to step into the speaking spotlight.
Extraordinary speakers know that you can’t truly achieve personal and financial success if you aren’t willing to set huge expectations for your presentations. They are ready to take a presentation risk so that rewards can be even greater for the audience and themselves. As an extraordinary speaker, remember the greater the presentation risk, the greater the potential reward.
Average speakers think that change is a bad thing and avoid it at all cost. Extraordinary speakers love change and seek out expert help as a way to stretch them past their comfort zones.
It takes real guts to be an Extraordinary speaker. As a speaker you are constantly changing, evolving and uncovering something new about you and your audiences. You have to be willing to grow. This means sometimes taking a big leap of faith, investing in you and your future.
Average speakers are happy playing small and living in their comfort zones. Extraordinary speakers take the risks necessary to create 6-figures and beyond. They know that they can’t do it on their own. They might try it for a little while and then they quickly realize that getting help is absolutely necessary to have the next level of success they truly desire.
Extraordinary speakers know that becoming truly successful is learning from the best so that they too can be the best.
