As senior adults, this is our time to do the things that we always wanted to do and become the person we always wanted to be. Yet some seniors do nothing more than focus on the negative mindset of growing old. However, I believe that most seniors have a positive outlook on life. These young at heart difference makers GO THE EXTRA YARD™ to create an enduring legacy. They understand that by achieving their purpose; they will impact our families and communities for generations.
No matter what group you fall in, if you are falling short of your purpose, focus on your goal and not on the fear. No matter your circumstances, it's not too late to take your defining step to GO THE EXTRA YARD. You can make a difference at any age.
GO THE EXTRA YARD: Empower the Champion Within / STEP UP! STAND OUT!
Like many young boys, my childhood dream was to become a professional football player when I grew up. However, despite my positive attitude and passion for the game, I was not a good athlete. In fact, I admit; I was spastic. So when the ball unexpectedly popped into my hands during a scrimmage game, I started to run for my life.
It is from this unforgettable experience that I discovered four keys to inspire Senior Adults to GO THE EXTRA YARD™ and EMPOWER THE CHAMPION WITHIN. During this 40-minute message (perfect for small groups, church services and senior centers plus keynote format for conventions), I take you on a thought provoking, inspirational and fun ride that begins with me running over 80 yards toward the goal line. Through humor, inspirational stories, Scripture and practical insight, my message engages, energizes and empowers you to GO THE EXTRA YARD™ to become the champion you are meant to be.
