Speech Topics

4th and Inches

Motivational speech about relentlessly pursuing your goals in life. Whether that is business, school, sports, or some other passion - too many people quit too early! We all have a passion to ""chase our dreams,"" yet when the going gets tough, we quit. Often times; however, we are much closer to the finish line than we realize.

Spina utilizes a football analogy to demonstrate just how close you may be to that giant breakthrough. He illustrates this through personal testimonies and stories. In football, we know how far we need to go - it is laid out for us. In life; however, there is no measuring stick. We walk blindly, yet your breakthrough may be merely inches away!
