Motivation: Your Moment of Truth
(1:15 pm-2:45 pm)
Presented by Georgette Reed ChPC, MA, BPE, CSCS, Member: Speakers’ Bureau of Alberta© and distinguished Olympian
Georgette Reed’s presentations are genuinely golden. Her enthusiasm and optimism shine through her keynote address as she shares the positive lessons, values and virtues of sport. Through relevant and, sometimes humorous, anecdotes she will demonstrate and bring to life how the trials and tribulations in her sporting life have influenced the way that she deals with the challenges of everyday life. “The real value of sport is not the actual game played in the limelight of the applause but the dogged determination and the self-effort carried out alone, imposed by an exacting conscience”. Georgette has that kind of exacting conscience. She demonstrated it when she was the number one Shot Put and Discus thrower in Canada for over a decade, and she possesses it still today.
Life, like sports, is about pursuing your dreams - it is a series of never ending mysteries waiting to unfold. Sport, like life, is about more than winning and losing - it is about succeeding. There is no “Finish Line”. Succeeding is to be your best and do the very best that you can in everything that you do - inside and outside of the spotlight. With this attitude, the sky’s the limit. It is important that each of us take up the challenge to be ourselves, believe in ourselves and make an effort to create our own destinies in search for that one moment in time... our Moment of Truth.
Georgette’s presentation focuses on empowering yourself to be the master of your own destiny.
Motivation: Your Moment of Truth can be any event good or bad, positive or negative. Convert it into a turning point, when you seize the day, ask the big questions, and make a commitment to transform that moment into an opportunity for altering your own destiny. These moments occur more often than we think. Georgette teaches us how to recognize them and that it’s not the time to be immobilized by them. On the contrary, it’s time to capitalize on them.
How do you do it? By changing your perspective, recognizing Your Moment of Truth and overcoming all roadblocks to find new and more effective ways of working, living and achieving excellence. Excellence is within your reach! Georgette shows us the way.
