Do you ever see other speakers sharing their message on stage and online and think, “I could do that or I want to do that”
I used to do that all the time, I’d watch speakers doing TED talks, working the stage, having a laugh with their audience and I’d think, I reckon I could do that… but what would I say? How would I say it?
You see, that’s the thing, it’s easy to create the dream in your head and say one day. One day I’ll make it happen, one day I’ll put the time in, but not today, I’m too busy.
Our dreams need an action plan. They need to have crystal clear vision so we know where we are going. That’s the first thing I suggest you do. GO BIG and work backwards from there, get clear on the purpose of being a speaker.
Do you want to speak to grow your business, get more clients, grow your personal brand? or is it about being a motivational speaker who gets hired at corporate events, large conferences and by well known brands?
It’s all possible, you just need to get crystal clear.
I remember, one of my goals for a while was to speak at a large conference on stage in New York.  NYC is my favourite city in the world and some of my best friends live out there, brilliant reasons for me to make this happen.
So I first of all I got clear on my TED talk, what was the message, the story and how could I pitch it in a way that made sure the organisers chose me as a speaker. I researched, built relationships and pitched myself more than once. I also made sure NYC was smack bang in the middle of my vision board next to an image of the TED stage. 

Within 6 months, I was standing on stage delivering my TED style talk at The Gratitude and Trust Summit in Times Square. I know this wouldn’t have happened had I been confused about where I wanted to speak or what I wanted to say and had I not taken Massive action.
You can do this. I believe in you and if you want some support, shoot me an email back. I’m more than happy to have a chat.
I’ll leave you with this:
IF YOU TALK ABOUT IT,  IT’S A DREAM, IF YOU ENVISION IT, IT’S POSSIBLE, BUT IF YOU SCHEDULE IT, IT’S REAL – Tony Robbins.
