 45-60 Minute Speech – YOU RULE – Take Control of Your Health, Wealth and Lifespan in 10-Second Bursts of Crazy Courage 

FORMAT: Keynote/General Session 45 – 60 minutes

Your self talk, your postal code and your willingness to take risks have a bigger impact on your health, wealth and longevity than education, exercise and playing by other people’s rules.

Over the last 160 years the human lifespan has grown by more than 40 years.
That means every four years it grows by one year. Or, to give it the shock value it deserves, “Every single day for the last one hundred and sixty years, human life expectancy has grown, on average, at the rate of six hours a day.”

Researchers at Germany’s Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject, say there is no biological or evolutionary reason for it to slow down. Actuaries in that country forecast a child born in 2022 will, on average, live to 108.

But, they won’t live that long for 3 reasons. For most of them their self-talk, their postal code and their unwillingness to take risks will whisk them away before their time is up.

In this upbeat inspiring call to action Nicholas shows how your self-talk, your postal code and your willingness to take risks have a bigger impact on your health, wealth, happiness and power than education, exercise and playing it safe.

Your Self-Talk, the way you explain your life and circumstances to yourself and others has a profound impact on your self-control. your decisions, your personality, your lifestyle, your confidence, your health, your wealth and your destiny. It’s a habit, or style, that can harm or help you and it’s easy to fix.

Your Postal Code (your personal environment and circumstances) has more effect on your luck and your lifespan than your genetic code. Spending time with people who radiate a positive outlook is the single most critical factor to your future luck. Your Spirit is impacted by when and where you were born, by the environment and locality you were raised in and by your occupation and how your life is going. This doesn’t mean you have to move: just make more of what’s around you.

Your Willingness to Take Risks. We hold within ourselves the resources and resourcefulness to accomplish ten times more than we ever do but we are limited, not by what we can do but by what we’re willing to try. Our willingness to break barriers, step out of our comfort zones and take risks give us unlimited access chance encounters and lucky breaks. People who see risk as something to be avoided or eliminated are saying goodbye to growth and personal achievement. People who embrace risks say hello to power, synchronicity and serendipity.

Audiences learn to take control of these three aspects of their daily lives and leave with skills they can use immediately.
