No Mountain High Enough, My Life Story
This keynote speech is based on Linda's book, No Mountain High Enough-Raising Lance, Raising Me. Her early life experiences helped her form the values and positive attitude that both she and Lance carried forward into adulthood. Linda believes that living with love and joy, maintaining focus, and risk-taking are at the heart of every successful endeavor and that these things are the foundation for a life well lived.
It is always a No! Until You Ask
If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again. You have all heard this before but how do you apply this? Making a change also doesn’t mean it’s going to work the first time. Linda will share her stories of “hitting a brick wall”, facing setbacks…. but never giving up. Why it’s important never to quit, and why you should never take “no” for an answer.
It’s Not Where You Start but How You Finish!
Creating the life you want takes more than luck and skill – it takes a plan. It’s a universal law: Whatever you focus on is going to manifest itself in your life. This humorous, high-energy presentation is filled with lots of stories that highlight the importance of focusing on the positive and how that can change the way you think, look and feel.
