Killer Executive Speeches From The Podium

Lets face it….most of you are terrified to deliver a REALLY good speech! I might even say you “suck” when it comes to delivering a message that matters. And you will continue to do this with consistency, because you are letting your fear control you. And it will continue to do so.

So deal with it and CHANGE! You know your material…and you probably know most of the people in your audience. They probably are not going to lynch you if what you present is boring….but it won’t bring the results you are looking for…as usual.

So develop a game plan. Become a “gamer” like most of the younger Millenials do and have a strategy. Open with a sentence that literally grabs them, such as…”No one wants to be called a LOSER!” or “The only difference  between a rut and a grave is how deep you dig it!” That later one is of course Samuel Clemens “Mark Twain” making another incredible rational thought…put into words…like only he could.

Be creative, be free…be spontaneous. Share something from your childhood and choose a scenario that others can relate to. It might even be embarassing, but you probably learned from it…didn’t you? The more  people can relate to you, the more they will listen and that’s  the key component.

And of course PRACTICE your opening, and your closing. Your content should be  filled with worthy information…but most people begin  to “fade” after 3  to 7 seconds. So make it count. Mix it up and bring levity to it. Take a deep breath throughout your presentation, just to calm yourself. Make it brief and to the point and of course with a call to action!

Jerry Seinfeld says he will take an 8 sentence joke and bring it down to 3 or 4, because that gets THE BEST RESPONSE!

Take it from these pro’s.

Remember your’e worth it…seriously!imgres-1

Did you lose your self confidence today….again?

Image What fun it was wearing Loretta Larouches Cape of confidence!   Make an effort to see this dynamic motivational speaker who specializes in STRESS management…with a smirk and a smile! All 5 ft. of here rev’s up so much energy, that each comment is applicable and appropriate to your life!

But the fact remains, it is up to you to manage your stress levels…no matter what it is. Only you can control your responses to stress….because it your mind processing those thoughts. But we allow ourselves to be our own worst enemy, and we can talk ourselves out of it! Loretta always says that everyday we should give ourselves a “TaDa”…literally giving yourself a ‘pat on the back!” And if you can’t do it, ask the person next to you, as long you return the favor.

Celebrate your day of life every day. You never know how brief it may be….

And if that seems to trite….pick up the book “God Never Blinks“….and you truly will realize how beautiful life is and in particular….your life!

You Gotta Believe….you really, really do.

The Cape of "Ta-Da".....& the fun of believing!The fun of wearing the famous Ta-Da” cape of Loretta LaRouche!

The Cape of "Ta-Da".....& the fun of believing!

Fun, fun, fun…..is guaranteed everyday if and when you practice what humorist Loretta LaRouche speaks on. Most of us in America have lost our capability to laugh with abundance. The economy is down, the housing market is in a crisis, unemployment is up….and these were the headlines that several presidents have talked about for over 150 years.

Most of us know that “History repeats itself.” And that IS the truth!

The truth is also that we no longer laugh as much as a child does. The average adult laughs, smirks, smiles broadly or giggles less than 40 times a day. The average child under 10 does just that from 100 to 400 times a day!

How did we lose this incredible gift?

One of the topics that I speak on is “Laughter is Contagious….Want to Catch Some?” This seminar addresses the incredible stress in our life….at work and at home. What negatively happens at work, we drag back home….and what happens at work we tend to take out on family members that we love.

Take a step back…and smile at yourself in the mirror. Make eye contact with the person you are next to…and genuinely ask how they are doing.

Check in and see how you are doing at least 3 times a day. Check in with yourself in the morning. Review your state of mind mid-day and evaluate how you are doing at the evening hours.

The great, late Norman Cousins, knew of the power of positive and more so the power of laughter.He was advised that his days were numbered and that he should get his affairs in order within the next 3 to 6 months….because that was the prognosis given to him! He checked in to the hotel across the street from the hospital and rented and viewed comedy films, day after day, after day.

What prognosis? He lived another  16 years!!

Give yourself a “Ta-Da” everyday. Laugh out loud…and be silly for no reason. Don’t think about it…just do it. If you don’t pat yourself on the back and give yourself a “Ta-Da”…who will?

As a speaker, I love bringing joy to your company, seminar or workshop. Strong Incentives brings powerful results…..in a positive way!

Blessings in abundance to you everyday!

The sadness of death…….

Yes, I know it is inevitable, but when you lose someone that you knew or loved or at least liked a lot….the finality of the end of life is simply empty.
A family member, a friend or a pet can simply drain you of all emotions.
I lost my Mom when she was only 55, and I had just turned 23. This was way too young for both of us.
I now have lived much longer than the time that I ever knew her.
Reading of the death of Patrick Swayze, and the murder of the Yale Medical student, the death of a high school friend and the death of my sister in laws sister….has brought the brevity of life into a very clear focus.
I wish you to cherish today, or this evening. Enjoy your friends, your loves, your pets, your family and more important enjoy the quality of your life.The beauty of laughter is soooo cool. Make an effort to smile more….it sounds trite, but damn it is so true. Laugh and love your life starting now. Seriously, you may only have a few moments left. You are worth it, you are worth it….you truly are worth it. Celebrate and love who you are!
Eileen
