Sometimes life seems like it just can’t get any worse – and then it does. There are times when setbacks keep coming and the only thing keeping us from giving up is our support system (if we’re lucky enough to have one), our attitude, and whatever strength we can muster. In this talk, I share the steps to take when trying to survive a difficult season in life and the importance of good friends, mentors, and a positive attitude.
When times get tough for young people they need to understand that seasons come and go, and this difficulty today may be setting them up for a massive victory in the future. Alternatively, the difficulty of today may be just the beginning of a challenging period of time – sometimes things don’t just get better quickly. It is in those periods of time that young people must know how to move forward in life when everything seems to be pushing them back.
One of the big factors of anyone’s success is their attitude and their ability to take ownership of their actions. During this seminar, I cover how to keep a positive attitude in times of great stress and challenge. I share about how to deal with people who put you down, and what to do when it seems like life is at a turning point – for good or bad.
Attendees will learn about the power of reading positive books, finding good mentors, making smart social media decisions, and setting measurable goals no matter how large or small.
"David is an amazing speaker who really touched a lot of our students at Bartlett High school. His personal journey and the stories he shares help to motivate students and to realize that everyone has struggles and everyone has pain, but it's how they deal with it and learn from it. He is full of passion, power, and enthusiasm. He is an excellent speaker and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a motivational speaker, especially for students!"
“Thank you! Today was perfect! The kids each pulled something different from your talk, which is perfect. You covered exactly the things we talked about (bullying, motivation, goal setting) and pulled them together in a creative way that kept the kids laughing, kept their attention, and helped them learn when they didn’t even realize they were learning.”
" David's approach is engaging, thought provoking, and reflective. He takes students on a walk through his personal journey and openly talks about his struggles and realizations. All of this messaging is done with a sense of humor and purpose. David involves his audience in this journey with his interactive public speaking skills and real life relevant examples. If you’re looking for an amazing speaker with high energy and a great message to motivate your students then you will want to have David Pride at your school. "
