Funny motivational speaker Amy Dee’s blog;
As I kid, my water came from the tap, telephones hung on the wall, and we sent letters by USPS. I wouldn’t have believed that one day, we’d purchase water in bottles, carry a phone in our pockets, send and receive mail in seconds. Someone thought outside the box to create these new products.
In the ’70s, Gary Dahl thought of selling rocks as pets. He bought the stones and packaging for less than $1 and sold over 1 million for $4 each. He became a millionaire by selling rocks.
Craig Newmark had thought of an online garage sale where you can get anything that you want. He built the Craigslist website that is still successful today.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in the spring of 1980 when a 7-year-old named Christopher Grecieus was being treated for leukemia and always dreamed of becoming a police officer. When U.S. Customs Officer Tommy Austin became friends with Christopher, he worked with DPS to grant the youngsters wish. This was the wish that started the organization, and now there are 62 chapters throughout the U.S. and in 47 other countries through affiliate offices.
When I moved to Norway in 1993, lousy customer service was the norm. When we started our business, we made customer service a priority by guaranteeing complete satisfaction and a one week turn around on our customers calendar orders.
I compete against many gifted speakers for jobs, but I am not computer savvy or technically talented, so I’ve chosen not to work at creating better PowerPoints or flashy videos.
Instead, I’ve developed my own unique delivery style, by combining my background with comedy, theatre, singing to weave in my content about mental flexibility.
My audience leaves with an inspirational experience, along with life-altering tools, they can immediately apply to create a better life.
Our society teaches us that our worth is determined by how we compare to someone else. We are made to believe that to succeed, we need to big bigger, better, louder.
But success isn’t only about doing better than others. Success also happens when you discover how to be different from the rest.
Ask yourself, “Is this the best way or just the way it’s always been done?’
Dare yourself to stand out from the crowd. Instead of competing with everyone else on the road to success, build your own path.
