Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Need some motivation?

Posted on | April 29, 2016 | No Comments

There is no shortage of events and videos to get motivation from these days.

So where do you go for motivation?

I love TEDTalks and CreativeMornings talks are also a fantastic place to find inspiring motivational talks.

But, there is always a but, what I am starting to find is motivational and educational talks are becoming more and more distant from me and my community and in becoming so are little more than noise and clutter.

Of course local talks are the exception such as the ones we are part of at CreativeMornings Dubai and the local TEDx events.

The problem with the plethora of global motivational content today is that there is too much and it, more than ever, has no connection to me and my community.

I love motivational talks but I also want to be able to meet those speakers, run into them at the supermarket, drop them an email, have a chat, maybe get to know them or see them speak in the flesh.

Well, last week I had the opportunity to hear Marcus Smith of Innerfight Gym talk about his lessons from the desert.

Marcus and I have been doing a fitness show on www.dubaieye1038.com/nightline for many years but we never talk about what he has learned and how to apply the lessons to everyday life. Marcus is starting to do talks about his experiences, www.innerfight.com,  and we did a hybrid talk on my radio show.

I was blown away!

You want to listen to this talk by Marcus it will give you a lot of food for thought.

Link to the Talk.


Ok, you have given the talk a listen, what do you think?
