The Scouting program is the most prominent in the United States and most well-known around the world. It has taught millions of boys and helped them to become men. The program also teaches life-saving techniques. Aaron and Tim talk about one story of a Boy Scout who did just this.

Note – the new program is called Scouts USA which allows girls to join in separate troops to enjoy the same valuable program.

Thankful on Thanksgiving 2017

Thanksgiving 2017

What are you thankful for on this Thanksgiving in 2017? Everything seems to be so terrible when the news reports things. When I speak to audiences, I gently remind people that if you look with negative glasses (TV), everything looks dark and gloomy. But if you look with a perspective of abundance and blessing, things actually look pretty darned good!

What are you thankful for?

I’m thankful that…

  • I woke up alive and uninjured this morning. People in war-torn Syria didn’t.
  • I have my health. People will lose loved ones today to cancer.
  • I have people who love me and care about me when I travel to some crazy places. I went to school with people who had parents that didn’t care one bit.
  • I have a successful speaking business.
  • I have a successful publishing business.
  • I live in a country where I’m free to do just about whatever I want. People in North Korea would be executed for the freedoms I enjoy.
  • I have a new-ish Toyota Tacoma. People in backwoods Columbia have one bicycle for an entire village.
  • I live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. See the above picture.
  • My Grandfather is still alive at 90 years old. He was in the WWII Japanese interment camps. I’m thankful I didn’t have to go through that, but I’m thankful for the strength he taught me from the experience.
  • I have both of my parents. My girlfriend lost her mother decades ago. Many my age don’t have one or both parents.
  • I actually know my parents. Many who have been adopted or orphaned have no idea.
  • I have a powerful computer that enables me to reach out to the world. The Massai village I visited in Tanzania last year uses torches for light at night.
  • We have a stable government that we can disagree with, dislike, but is still one of the best deals on Earth. I remind myself to try the government in Sudan when I think mine is bad.
  • I have a warm, comfortable place to live. I saw people who live in rusted out corrugated steel shacks in Guatemala trying to make a living by selling pineapples on the side of the road.
  • I’ve been gifted with the friendships in the Teton Photography Group.
  • I have friends from junior high and high school that care about what I’m up to. I know those who were terribly tormented in middle school and are still struggling to forgive and walk beyond.
  • I have a brother, sister-in-law, nephews, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, and a whole gaggle of people who care about me. People trying to escape Ethiopia to Saudia Arabia have nothing but death in their desert.
  • We have a world given to us by Him, who blesses us with everything we have.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Musical Inspiration

What inspired you today? What made you get up and do your best with what you have, not wishing for things you don’t?

Wishing isn’t doing. Doing is doing.

Hanz Zimmer

Be inspired by Hans Zimmer, one of the greatest composers of our time. In two notes, he created the sound for the Batman trilogy. Just two notes! It’s all about how they’re presented and they’re emphasized. That means everything.

Through this promo for his music master film class, I was inspired. Even though I have no musical skill, he made me feel like I could create something. I’m not going to delude myself by buying an instrument and trying to make something, though!

 

I love his quote:

“The interesting ideas come from some kid in a garage in the Bronx.”

Hans Zimmer’s promo video

Watch his Youtube trailer and be inspired.

“If you have a story, you can do whatever you want to do.”

What’s your story? What’s your skill? I’ll bet you have something lurking inside that’s just waiting to burst forth and shine. What’s stopping you from sharing it?

What do I do?

Instead of trying to compose music, I perform the music in my heart. I have a conversation with audiences, sharing my experience of risking everything to pursue a dream.

They see a guy who doesn’t look like someone who could drag a refrigerator across a continent. experience how a software engineer became the second only American to successfully ski to the South Pole against all odds. That’s what I do.

People learn my improbable story in Antarctic Tears. They see a guy who doesn’t look like someone who could drag a refrigerator across a continent standing in front of them. Audiences experience how a software engineer became the second only American to successfully ski to the South Pole against all odds. That’s what I do.

What Will You Do?

You were put on the Earth to do something, to share and use something special inside of you. Do you use it? Are you afraid of it? That’s okay, so many of us are afraid to fail. But really, what’s the worst that happens? You learn something that doesn’t work. That’s okay. Failure is a necessary path to success. Failure and failing doesn’t mean you’re a

That’s okay. Failure is a necessary path to success. Failure and failing doesn’t mean you are a failure. It only means you gained more knowledge than you have before. And the next time you’ll be better for it.

Thank you to Adrian Hackett for hiring me as the keynote speaker for the West Tennessee Boy Scout Council’s annual fundraising dinner. The goal of this event was to raise funds for the Boy Scout program. The objective of my talk was to integrate scouting with my message of building grit and courage while keeping a positive attitude in the face of adversity.

Watch Adrian’s testimonial on what he thought about Aaron as the speaker for his event.

Keynote Speaker Testimonial Adrian Hackett

Working as a Keynote Speaker

I wanted to make sure I delivered the message the council needed to achieve their objectives, in this case raising funds. As a speaker, it’s important to communicate exactly what a client needs for their event. My goal is to be as easy as possible to work with and to provide the best value for a client’s investment in my program.
