Getting Motivated~~Monday Marvels!

Good Morning dear friends. Hope you had a great Halloween weekend. Today's Monday Marvel is about a seminar I attended last Monday with my hubby and fellow associates from his work. It was a dynamite seminar called Get Motivated from the creators of Peter and Tamara Lowe. We heard amazing speakers like Robert Schuller, General Colin Powell, John Walsh, Terry Bradshaw, Zig Ziglar, Rudy Giuliani, George W. Bush and more. It was a fire up sort of day. I have always been self motivated, but every once in awhile, a pep rally of sorts to spur one on is just what is needed when you are in business or any walk of life. What I truly was inspired to see, and hear most, was all the speakers had a faith based message, and in today's world that is rare.

We arrived in Fort Worth, Texas at the Convention center very early to find our seats. It was a packed house given the speakers about to command our attention. The day was again another very rainy Monday, but the excitement inside more then made up for the rain.

Inside everyone was excited during a Beach Boys music event and dance contest on stage. The beach balls made their way around the convention center.

Once the lights went down to introduce the many speakers it was hard to get good pics but I did manage to get a good screen shot of George W. Bush. He is seen under the screen on stage.

Every speaker had great inspirational experiences to share. I loved when Robert Schuller said, " Never look at what you have lost, Look at what you have left" and John Walsh who encouraged us to " Never Give Up" or Colin Powell who encouraged others to have,"Purpose in Life" and "Recognizing people" or Terry Bradshaw who said, "We are all called" and how "Smiles can Win"
I admire the words of Zig Ziglar who said, " Worry is a waste of time, to embrace the struggle, learn new things and NEVER GRADUATE FROM LEARNING" Love that thought!
Rudy Giuliani went on to say, "Leadership is about offering one's self." "Being prepared in all things and planning goals throughout life."
George Bush reminded us and said, "To whom much is given, much is required." He went on to say to only "speak truths" and "surround yourself with good people."

My favorite speaker of the day was James Smith a real estate expert, who had this to teach. "It doesn't matter how you start, it's how you finish, that giving yourself away will let success find you, If you don't like yourself, no one else will like you, that doing what's on your heart will bring joys! And, God puts people in front of you everyday for you to bless".

All ended with a faith based message for life, the future, and true happiness in wherever your path takes you.
It was an amazing day. I hope that a bit of this Get Motivated post, inspires you in some way. Blessings to all till I see you again for Tastey Tuesday!
