Yesterday I had the pleasure to attend the GET MOTIVATED seminar. Located at the United Center, this event drew thousands of business minded individuals. The GET MOTIVATED Seminar is an action-packed, fun-filled, explosive, exciting, inspiring, skill-building business event that is world famous for its mega-watt superstar speakers and spectacular stage production. This blockbuster one-day seminar will give you proven strategies to sharpen your business skills, ignite your motivation, accelerate your effectiveness and increase your income! This year the line up of speakers included: Rudy Giuliani, Joe Montana, Brian Tracy, Mike Ditka, Gen. Colin Powell, Steve Forbes, Zig Ziglar, Terry Bradshaw, Rick Belluzzo, and Gen. Stanley McChrystal.
It was a real delight to sit and listen to each speaker give insight on their lives and encouraging words to eager business minded adults. Colin Powell joked about new aged technology and how his life has changed being the former Secretary of State. After rounding up his speech he left the crowd with the following quote "Where you start in life doesn't not determine where you will end up." Following Colin Powell was Zig Zigler, who was joined by his daughter. Zig Zigler's approach to touch the crowd was by speaking about the importance of LOVE, family, and treating people kindly. I really enjoyed learning about Zig Zigler and his journey.
As the day came to a close, Mike Dikita received a tremendous about of love from many. While trying to calm the crowd, Mike jokingly stated "Yeah, Yeah, most of you who are cheering for me are probably the same people who cheered when I got fired." The icebreaker made the whole stadium belt with laughter. After spending all day at the event, I was appreciative of the information that I left with. I truly believe that everyone should at least attend this seminar once in their lifetime and GET MOTIVATED!
Check out the few pictures that I was able to take. Sorry about some of the blurriness.
