Heart For The Game

Moments of Truth
In all of our lives, we tend to define ourselves by MOMENTS. These moments shape who we are and how we view ourselves. The birth of a child, getting married, a big promotion are all moments that many of us celebrate. But what if the moments in your life are not always expected. How do you prepare for moments when you don't know when or how they will come? Why do some people seem to 'execute' their moments better than others? What if your moment seems bigger than what you can handle?
Simon talks about the Moments in his life and how "being flat on your back at age 21, and about to have your heart taken out of your chest" certainly qualifies as a Moment. How Simon moved forward from that potentially crippling event and was able to live an incredible heart stopping life.
Why does FEAR inhibit our behavior? Why do we allow FEAR to become the overriding presence in our lives? Is overcoming FEAR the number one difference that make the ultra-successful "different" than the masses? Simon explores this concept as part of his LEADERSHIP training and pushes the audience to come to grips with their fears and what steps they can take to overcome this often debilitating state of mind. After participating in this KEY NOTE speech - you will be motivated more than ever to implement the strategies to overcome YOUR FEARS.
6 Characteristics of Champions
Simon has dedicated his life studying and understanding what it takes to be a Champion. Having identified 6 Major Characteristics, Simon speaks about the importance of each and uses anecdotal evidence based on his and other "Champions" lives.
• Belief - The Power of Stupid
• Pursuit of Excellence
• Dare to Live
Changing the Perception of Organ Transplantation
Simon communicates a unique perspective on what it "feels" like to be the recipient of a lifesaving organ transplant...even if you don't want to really talk about. A 25-year struggle in learning to how to interact with others who expect you to be someone different than who you are (or ever were). Why do people want you to be "different"? Why do they treat you as "different"? Does it help you that they want you to be "special" or does it further handicap you? As a recipient who has fought prejudice and pre-conceived notions, Simon delivers a message that anyone battling an illness, struggle, or challenge will simply be inspired to hear. A must see presentation!
