I was wearing my motivational speaker hat, getting ready to speak to a group of teachers. And while I was doing that - I was musing to myself. You know, making one of those nonverbal sounds as I looked at the table the hotel audio/visual guy had brought me.  I was thinking, "that's just about the perfect size for my props."

It's true. There's tremendous value in choosing a word that you want to define your upcoming year. A word that will act as a guiding principle for all your actions, choices and intentions. But after January 1, after you have selected your word, how do you make that word actually show up for you? How do you remember to consciously apply that word to your life each and every day?

The Most CRITICALLY IMPORTANT JOB for Patient/Customer Service Providers

By Linda Larsen - Wednesday, October 10, 2018

I’m a high maintenance dental patient. That’s right - a motivational speaker who is a high maintenance dental patient. It’s almost an oxymoron. But it’s true. I just think about going to the dentist and my left eye starts twitching. And what makes this really fascinating is that I am also the (self-proclaimed) World’s Most Experienced Dental Patient. Name a procedure and I’ve probably had it done - more than once. So you’d think I’d be over it by now. Yeah, right. I’m not.

Feeling Crappy? Put on a Wacky Hat

By Linda Larsen - Monday, January 06, 2014

Okay - so I am a motivational speaker NOW - but I used to be a professional actress, performing on stages in lots of plays where the characters were VERY colorful and the costumes were straight from periods of long ago.  I remember rehearsing for weeks learning all the nuances of my character, but it wasn't until we started rehearsing in costumes - that the magic really began to happen.  I remember playing the role of Celia in As You Like It and what happened when I first put on the costume. From the moment I put them on, there was something about that dress, and that lovely little hair piece that made me FEEL like the character. I moved differently, I started THINKING differently, and I actually FELT different.
