Do You Have These Speaker Sea Legs?

Do You Have These Speaker Sea Legs?


On the beach of the ocean of life most speakers are grains of sand . . .


There is nothing one grain of sand on the beach of the ocean of life can do to affect the ocean of life, right?


Imagine you——one such grain of sand——having legs, legs and volition.  With your volition you take a course in calligraphy at a small California college . . .

True story:

Rooted in his volition one grain of sand, Steve Jobs, imbeds variable spacing into the fonts of the new Mac Computer in 1984. A token touch you say, a mere flicker . . . which at the time it was . . .

Today, in order to compete with Apple, every computer on this earth has variable spacing fonts.

So every e-mailed message everywhere is a little easier to read. And a little more beautiful. Because an unknown college dropout took an obscure course at a small college nobody outside its town ever heard of . . .


I know what you’re thinking:  “Yeah, but he was Steve Jobs.”  Well, who said he was the last genius ever to be born?

Let’s look at you:  You’re one of a kind.  There will never be another you. The clock is ticking. And you’ve got this one-way ticket. Who dares say it’s too late for you?

Michelangelo was over 90 when he painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. It’s not too late.  It’s not too late.  It’s not to late for you . . .

I know this about you:

You’re a speaker or maybe an aspiring speaker or you wouldn’t be seeing these words. Within you is a perspective, a spark, an essence. Yours . . .

It’s unique to you. When you leave this plane it goes too. And the world will be denied your glow, your vision, your light . . .

What are you doing about this?  Is the universe of lives you may impact to be forever denied your contribution, your essence,  and your genius?

Or are you to spur your spark, vocalize your vision, and give life to the latent outcomes only you can generate?  You can do this with what Sam Horn so eloquently calls your Tongue Fu!

As Emerson wrote, “The power that is in you is new in nature and none but you know what that is which you can do, nor do you know until you try!”

Do these words resonate within you as they do in me?  What are you doing about it?

You can settle for the mire of mediocrity, you can sit back and do nothing.

Life’s a beach:

Or you can get up off the beach of your life. You can get up on your sea legs and leave a lasting legacy with your voice . . .


Do you want a guiding hand, a mentor, a speaking business coach?
