It’s the morning of Day Two of Bo Eason’s Personal Story Power [http://boeason.com/ ] event and wow, is my brain on fire!

I am learning a lot about myself but more importantly, how I can serve others better. There is also the message pounded into our heads that it is not about “ME” but about “YOU.” It’s not that people don’t care about me but if I am going to coach and speak and teach, it’s about others and what I can share of myself to help them.

While that seems like a fine line, when the realization sinks in…it’s a game changer!

But too many people live in “ME world.”
How do I feel?
Look what I did…
See what I can do…
I am a victim
It’s not my fault…
How am I doing?

Living in the “ME world” is, in a sense, putting on blinders as to what is really going on in the world. And it also means that we are so focused on ourselves that we cannot truly help anyone else.

Yet, it’s easy to stay in this space because so many people are already there. When we look around, it’s what we see, what we hear…Our speakers…Our teachers…Our politicians…

And people are playing mediocre. Lives are filled with mediocrity. We take the easy road and go throughout our days trying to fit in and not stick out too much…

Bringing it all back to the event, one of the main goals of this event is to hone in on my Personal Story – what was it that clicked or changed and was a moment in my life that I will never forget. We all have them. And it’s not the happy ones that are powerful. It’s those that are hard, even some so deep down we may have hidden them for years…

All of the people with me are speakers and teachers and communicators – and wow! It is so refreshing to see people who act like human beings on stage. Open, moving and engaging with the audience. There are no podiums for us, no slides – just us, our bodies and our words.

Think about the last time you went to a presentation or saw a speaker. Did they hide behind a podium. Did that stand in one place? Were they worried about not being perfect? Did they read from slides?…

Imagine what it would be like to be an audience member of a Speaker who is not mediocre…who stands there unapologetically as themselves…who speaks to YOU?

That’s the world I want to live in…how about you?
