Speech Topics

Reconnect, Rewire & Rewrite Your Life

Who am I? And why did I wake up today? That was a question I would ask myself 12 years ago and I didn’t have a real true answer. I didn’t have much direction in my life either. I was lost in a transition. That was 12 years ago. As a kid from Kalamazoo Michigan, I achieved my dream of becoming an NFL Star then had to start all over creating a new identity, a new role and a new passion for life. I will share my story along with some thoughts, tools and processes that I used to reignite my purpose. Starting with the importance of reconnecting to your true self, your roots. Then work up to how we are programmed and what we need to do to rewire our systems, thoughts and actions. Finally, rewriting our future; being who we want to become and living it out loud with strength, courage and a calm knowing. We have all been through a lot of transitions in these last few years, so now it's time to remember why we are here and reignite our purpose with hope and passion.
