Passion is a difference maker and people living the most joyful, fulfilling, and successful lives have it. But passion alone is not enough. Passion is necessary, but not sufficient, to be truly successful. By learning about Pragmatic Passions 7 Core Principles you will have a practical, common sense, blueprint for achieving success in your personal and professional lives. This high energy, interactive keynote will help you to bring your passion to all aspects of your life!
The Attendees Will Learn These 7 Core Principles…
- Purpose: Why discovering your Purpose is critical and must guide you every single day.
- Attitude: How to choose an awesome attitude toward everything in your life and to T.A.G. others.
- Sacrifice: Using “The Power of Focus” to manage YOUR time so you can persist and persevere.
- Servant Leadership: To serve before leading, be “other-centered”, and to provide superior service.
- Inspiration: Surround yourself with people who make you better and find your mentors.
- Options: Develop outstanding options and make informed choices using critical thinking skills.
- Nurture: To become a life-long learner and commit to sharing your knowledge and wisdom.
There’s just something about walking among the ancient Greek ruins or holding a vessel that’s been buried for more than 2,000 years… I truly believe that it’s these experiences — those outside the four walls of a classroom — that allow you to expand your horizons and provide the foundation for your character, and it’s those character traits that will set you apart from everyone else in the world.
