10 Minutes to Start Your Day Right! – MORNING MOTIVATION | Motivational Speech 2021

[Music] i found that nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks nothing nelson mandela said there is no passion to be found playing small in settling for a life that's less than the one you're capable of living now i'm sure in your experiences in school and applying to college and picking your major and deciding what you want to do with life i'm sure people have told you to make sure you have something to fall back on make sure you got something to fall back on honey but i never understood that concept having something to fall back on if i'm going to fall i don't want to fall back on anything except my faith i want to fall forward i figure at least this way i'll see what i'm going to hit fall forward this is what i mean reggie jackson struck out 2600 times in his career the most in the history of baseball but you don't hear about the strikeouts people remember the home runs fall forward thomas edison conducted one thousand failed experiments did you know that i didn't know that because the one thousand and first was the light bulb fall forward every failed experiment is one step closer to success it's good for you to go take your place in the world have some ambition have some have a vision have a goal have a strategy try to try to be a good person in not not because it's your duty precisely because that's the proper way to live we're in danger of undermining all of that and it's not good for people one of the things that i've really learned for example recently is that there's a or learn to articulate better is that there's a very tight relationship between aspiration and responsibility so let's say well the first question might be do you need to aspire to something and the answer is well yes because you have to do something okay if you just sit there you'll die you can't just sit there you have to go act out in the world okay so act towards what well that's whatever your aspiration is you have to have a name okay well what should the aim be well it should be something worth doing let's say why do something that you don't feel is worth doing what do you think's worth doing well if you watch other people and you judge when they're doing something worthwhile usually judge them positively if you see that they're taking responsibility at least for themselves but you want to be completely useless so other people have to take care of you that's pretty pathetic and maybe you could get your act together so you're taking care of yourself and your family and maybe you could even do better than that and take care of yourself and your family and your community i know i've gone on stage in front of 10 000 people and i thought i should have more powerpoint i should have more reminders and i just remember walking out and saying i'm here to help rise these people up to give them capabilities to change their life it's my vision it's my goal it's my obligation to use my unique ability to just help these people and live from my heart and all i can think about is changing these people's lives and when i got out there i wasn't perfect on stage i wasn't robotic and say the right things and i didn't have the crisp clear powerpoint but when i spoke from the heart it overcame all of that and i get to be one of the best presenters wherever i go because i speak from the heart now you might be saying dean that's your unique ability and maybe that is but i know for you in life there are circumstances where you have to prepare you have to do a powerpoint you have to do a presentation and i want to tell you passion and from the heart always always wins over over prepared and thinking from the head well let me just ask you something right now in the in the crazy presidential race the the gop race you know ben carson is probably the smartest guy when it comes to book smart out of the whole group and i don't watch the news a lot but i just read a lot and somebody said this the other day and it just it just hit me someone said man ben carson is probably the smartest guy in that gop race that's going on whatever you think of it and i'm not going to share my opinion but you know what the guy said when he was done he's like but we all know the smartest guy never wins and i was like wow we all know that the smartest guy never wins and what does that mean and it's kind of what i'm sharing today i'm not saying you shouldn't be smart i'm sure and so many of you are probably way smarter than i am but what i want to tell you is enthusiasm and passion and living from your heart to me a hundred percent of the time outweighs being over prepared and robotic and trying to think what to say i hope i'm getting the right message across today i i've had this question from so many people how are you so easy to talk on camera on stage and i i never have a good answer and i really thought through it and that's the answer i am here right now doing this video for you because each week i want to deliver you a nugget that you could just place into your life and make a tiny shift towards a better life so i don't need a teleprompter i don't need a script i didn't i i come here and just want to deliver and it's coming from my heart now i have practice i've been on video for 15 years i've been doing these for seven eight years and maybe that's not what you do but you're still gonna have these circumstances where you have to talk to your children talk to your co-workers talk to your employees and talk to your employer and if you get stuck in your head that's when you get stressed that's when you get worried that's when you try to remember what to say and you leave and go ah why did i say that or why didn't i say more what if you can go in and say why am i going in and live with passion and have it come from your heart then that's truly you and you're giving the answers you're supposed to from the real you not the facade that sometimes life makes us wear one of the challenges i think many people have is really the discernment of information it's really difficult to know what's the truth anymore just because information is so accessible and i used to say that in an age of information ignorance is a choice and and now we have to confront a whole nother level and that is the information that we're getting uh is it is it actually supporting us or is it something that really is an incentive to to cause us to make choices so um for me i think the biggest challenge has been just really an awakening to what kind of information i want to expose myself to and i think it's now more than ever a challenge for a lot of people in the world you don't have to be perfect to inspire others you can inspire people by how you deal with your imperfections right don't feel that you have to have it all know it all to make an impact you don't you just need a soul full of desire and compassion right it was martin luther king who said you don't need a college degree to serve you don't need to know how to fill a sentence to serve all you need is a hea
