Energy Amplified: A Recent High School Keynote

I love presenting and giving keynote speeches, especially when they are live and in person. And while 90% of my talks & keynotes are to a secular audience, a few times a year, I get asked to speak at a chapel service or an FCA huddle where I can share my faith. This podcast episode is from a chapel service I recently gave to about 800 kids at Christian Unified schools in San Diego, CA. While this “Energy Amplified” talk was created specifically for the students, it also resonated with the teachers, administration, and leadership. I believe you will find value as well.

In today’s episode, I specifically share:

– Why are enthusiasm and energy important these days, and how to live with more optimism and hope in troubling and dark times.

– Why habits are important and how you can amplify your good habits and extinguish your bad ones.

– An embarrassing habit that I need to get rid of.

– The importance of good health, what you should eat and drink for optimal health, and how frequently you should work out to feel good and optimize your energy.

– How to ‘get your mind right’ to fulfill your goals and accomplish your dreams.

– Some of my favorite scripture verses to help you strengthen your faith.

While I don’t always get to incorporate God in my talks as I did in this one, I do believe He is with me during all of them. To be able to share the importance of faith with these young men and women, who are in an extremely formidable time of their lives, is a true impact on my world. I hope the message also speaks to you regardless of your age, faith, or beliefs.
