UNLOCK YOUR GREATNESS SPEECH
It starts with being uncomfortable. Or so Ari says. As he explains that his "discomfort" comes from being indoors instead of outdoors, it sets the stage for stories from Ari's life changing adventures outdoors.
People grow by venturing outside their comfort zone. Best to push far beyond what you thought possible!
As Ari inspires the group to be radically themselves, he uses his expertise to teach the 5 Keys To Greatness, his motivational framework. By each key, Ari calls a volunteer, who gets a free t-shirt for being a part of the performance.
Sprinkled throughout the talk is the tragic story from Ari's childhood, where, at 10 years old, he went hiking with his class and their teacher, who passed away in the woods that day.
"Positivity isn't about getting what you want; it's about doing the best with what you've got," says Ari, as he gently tells the audience the terrible news that his teacher is no more. The moment is sad and emotional, even so many years later. Everything soon takes a turn for the better as Ari explains the emotional moment when he names his son after this teacher.
The speech nears the end as Ari tells over the last key, Tenacity, demonstrated by breaking a board. As Ari shows how easy the framework is to remember, he invites everyone to get uncomfortable with him....
To "find within us more than we know..."
So that we can "never settle for anything less."
And together, Unlock Your Greatness within.
