Professional Speaker

Professional Speaker.

Know what that means? Duh, right?  Public speaker who gets paid…blah, blah, blah.

It means there are people who’s job is to give speeches. Everyday.

In front of people.  Sometimes a dozen, or several dozen. Sometimes a thousand, or several thousand.

And some of them really try to be so good at what they do (same as a parent, nurse, chef, etc) that their speech may actually start to change the world.

You know how I know this?  I’m one of them.  Happy day.  Carpe diem.

jeff noel Aggressively Unfancy?

Is jeff noel aggressively unfancy?  Well, one thing for certain, I’m certainly not too funny when I blog.  But I sure do try to be aggressively unfancy.

And the concept of being unfancy is one most of us have never heard of. We have, but not in those exact words.

Aggressively unfancy means, to me, a person who is not focused on looking smart or sexy.  Sort of an ordinary person who deep down inside understands that they are blessed beyond measure simply by being alive.  And that that is more than enough.

Having a roof over your head, food on your plate, someone to love and someone to love you back.  Ya with me?  (this one’s for you MDJ)

Having a car that starts every time, someone in your life who is more important than you, a clean shirt and indoor plumbing – these things make us rich.  And potentially, aggressively unfancy. But certainly not funny.  Ya with me?  (this one’s for everyone)

Shortcuts

We all look for shortcuts in our day to day living.  Shortcuts at home. Shortcuts at work.  Shortcuts while driving.

Why?

Because shortcuts save time.  And sometimes, money.  Who doesn’t want that?

Even bloggers look for shortcuts.  Like writing a brief post about shortcuts, to save time.  🙂

Biggest Human Fear Is…

The world’s biggest fear is…… drum roll please………..

Wait.   Before we reveal it, you all know the fear of death is number two, right?

And you know I’ve been a Professional Speaker for ten years, right?

Well, here’s a surprise.   All studies say Public Speaking is our biggest fear.

I completely disagree with the scientific data.

The biggest fear we have?

It’s not the fear of dying, it’s actually the fear of living.

Think about it for awhile.  If you deny this, then go out and do it.

Orlando’s jeff noel speaks briefly on hard work in this jeff noel You Tube video.

Hard work is the key, in my opinion. Making choices, staying focused and looking ahead are also key ingredients in the recipe for success.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

PS.  Forgot to mention, having fun is real important too.   Did you catch the mini-blooper at the end?  🙂  🙂
