Motivational Speaking - Spiritual Genetics & The Universal Dream
In his highly acclaimed and sought-after motivational speeches, Chris Gardner shares some of the steps that he had to take and obstacles he overcame in order to get from where he was to creating the life that he wanted to live right now.
Through his presentations, Chris introduces the concept of Spiritual Genetics that makes you, ‘you’. And it’s a part of you that has nothing to do with anatomy, biology, chemistry orphysics. That part of you cannot be measured, analysed or quantified. That part of you which has nothing to do with blood type DNA or pigmentation. That part of you which is beyond the scope, reach or understanding of science, medicine or technology.
Chris also explains the concept of the Universal Dream, an idea that he learned from his mother, who said to him, “Son, you can do or be anything you want to do or be.” Those words would be the driving force that would take him from being homeless with a baby to having his own successful stock brokerage firm.
The Universal Dream also refers to the fact that where you are in your spirit is more important than where you are on the PLANET! The most important experiences in our lives feel the same whether you live in the USA or the UAE! Such as the birth of a child, a graduation, a wedding, a new job or the loss of a loved one. Those are all universal experiences that create a family called humanity.
In his speech, Chris Gardner identifies the importance of the “P’s” in our life: Keeping a Promise. He will share his promise, a promise he made to himself as a 5 year old boy; that when he grew up, become a man and have children, his children would know who their father would be.
And second, that he was going to become world class at what ever he did in his life. Passion. What is that thing that turns you on so much that the sun can’t come up soon enough in the morning because you want to go do your thing?
And, finally, having a Plan. He explains how the plan has to have, what Chris calls, the C-5 Complex (Clear, Concise, Compelling, Consistent and Committed to the plan).
He will also talk about Empowerment, the idea of “I drove here” which means if “I drove here” then “I can drive out of here”. You can’t change something until you own it.
The only thing Chris Gardner wants you to leave with, is to know that if Chris Gardner can do it, so can you.
