I have a dream ! I’ll become one of the best motivational speaker in the uk within two years. For some is one of those dreams but for me is a fact. You may ask..”What is it Oscar that makes you think that your dream is going to become reality ? Unless you have concrete solid evidence no one is going to believe that.” And I would say to you…”number one you can dream and not only when you are asleep and a dream is what you want…and number two your dream can become reality as long as you believe in yourself. What does it mean? Blieve in yourself means evaluating yourself under any circumstances. Costantly evaluating yourself.
Will any speaking club make me become the perfect speaker? Absolutely not, but what will is the interaction and the connection i am going to have with every single one of you, that will develop my skill. You see every one of you is like a piece of a puzzle, the only thing I have to do is to put the pieces together to have a picture. Every one of you holds a keyword , a sentence , a phrase that at some point , in any casual conversation you are going to tell me, like it or not! That sentence , that phrase, that keyword is going to trigger something in my mind that will take me to another level in order to reach my goal. You may say …”Hey , we’d better shut up then!”
What I am suggesting is that the way you learn how to succeed can come from any source. It could be a book, a friend, the internet and any other form of communication and when it happens then is when you have to apply the only rule you are going to need to know about. There is only that chance because you don’t know when the next moment is going to happen. A moment is like a test, you take it once. From moments are born opportunities, seize that moment. A moment is like a crossroad, where everithing you want will collide with everything standing in your way and the only difference between making history and being history , the only thing….the only thing you can count on any given moment is you!
I found that the biggest challenge you have to deal with in life is yourself and there is an old african proverb that says “If there is no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm”. So you want to start trusting yourself, you want to start believing in yourself because you know that deep down your dream can become reality and you can leave your dream. And I am thinking of a woman that had the courage to appear in one of those tv shows although she was 47 and unemployed. I am talking about Susan Boyle. It took her 6 minutes of her life to become an international star. 6 minutes ladies and gentlemen to walk the path of success. The amazing thing about this woman is that every dream she had became reality, even singing for the pope. Do you remember when she said that? People were laughing. Did she do it? Yes she did it on the 16 of September 2010. So what is it that drives her? Two things….Passion and faith things that we already have. So the real question is “Do you really want to win? Are you ready to commit yourself and everything you have in order to reach your goal? Are you ready to challenge yourself and say Yes to your dreams?”
I am telling you one thing ladies and gentlemen and that is that things are going to happen to you so you’d better be prepared for the ride of your life. Be prepared mentally, physically and spiritually because life is like a rollercoaster. Sometime you go up and sometime you go down, sometime things go well and sometime things don’t go well. The clock is ticking……what are you going to do? Beyonce , the singer said once….”I always challenge myself by doing things I have never done before because is the only way for me to improve! and I say to you ladies and gentlemen “Always challenge yourself because is the only way for you to know that you are going somewhere ! So …get up and keep going!
