Let me instruct and uplift your group by sharing techniques for success. I weave examples from dance, work, and building a business into a motivating learning experience.
What started out as a hobby became a symbol for me of survival, recovery and overcoming great odds.
Success wasn't new to me. I'd been a top achiever in school and in my profession. Early in life I chose to focus on excellence and developed the tools and attitudes needed to achieve it. I'd never thought of myself as a survivor, but more as someone who learned to overcome obstacles like cancer at an early age.
I began Irish dancing with the In Sync dancers and performed at community events. It was great fun!
But in 2005 that all changed.
The short version goes like this:
In 2005 I had a series of health challenges and in 2006 a fairly major surgery. I was forced to put my dancing hobby on the shelf and focus on survival. In 2007 my stopped car was rear-ended by an SUV going 50 mph. An engineer calculated I took 80 Gs of force in the impact.
After several months of physical therapy, I was determined to rebuild my body. Through a combination of clear goal setting, mental techniques to overcome obstacles, a supportive family, and a superb instructor and coach, I was able to compete and win 6 first place medals in Irish dance over the course of 12 months.This talk begins with a 2 minute Irish dance and can be given as a 30 minute, 60 minute, or 90 minute presentation. It is an excellent choice to start the day and works well for lunch or dinner meetings.
