SPEAKING TOPICS INCLUDE:
- "All That I Can Be..." - Each of us, by birth and/or development, possesses both the potential for success and the equal potential to derail that success. A major key to achieving personal goals lies in the discovery of the "unique design" that is "ME" - positives and negatives, strengths and weaknesses, abilities and "disabilities" - then shaping my future to take full advantage of that design. Recognizing, acknowledging and ultimately embracing, "all that I am" provides the foundation for me to become "all that I can be." From that beginning, the path to personal and professional growth is marked by a series of specific affirmations. The acceptance and application of these principles will promote achievement commensurate with ability, regardless of the task.
- "How Handicapped Am I??" - Everyone has limitations. To deny or even question the validity of this statement is an unrealistic presumption about myself and others. The danger to self-actualization lies in accepting those limitations as "handicaps" - unconquerable obstacles which forever condemn the possessor to failure. By redefining the word "handicap" as "anything which keeps me from being or becoming all that I was created to be," we discover that the things which truly hinder us are seldom easily discerned or readily perceptible. Replacing the myths we accept about our apparent limitations with a realistic understanding of what truly prevents success provides a vehicle to personal and professional fulfillment.
