I discuss living a motivated life in my inaugural, award-winning book, Living Motivated, The Beatitudes for Living A Motivated Life. One of the tenets of my core message is that you must be happy. Whether you are in school, in church, at home, at work, in the car, at play, I truly believe you need to be happy. The question I get a lot is, Dr. Sims how can I be happy like you? Part of my discussion is simply, you must be in the right lane (i.e. living on purpose). I shared this with the 5th-grade graduation class at Grandview Elementary, find out in life whether you are an apple or an orange. This simple example really resonated with the kids because they come up to me today and shout out, I’m an apple, Dr. Sims. SMILE. The reason this is so important is quite simple. If you are an apple trying to be an orange (or vice-versa), you will never pass the orange test when you are an apple. But, if you reinvent yourself and begin thinking like an apple, you will pass with flying colors. Your self-esteem will rise exponentially because now you are right where you suppose to be!!
We all want to change for the better in some big or small way, but we’re not always sure where to start. Dr. Sims has given my “purpose-driven life” a jump-start right when I needed it most. As a middle school teacher trying to make a difference (while maintaining my sanity), I deal with a lot of chaotic conflicts. Before I could effectively reach these kids, I needed help understanding my own worthiness. Dr. Sims is compassionate, understanding, and focused on building a person up from the foundation, wherever they’re strongest. I am finding new strengths I hadn’t tapped into before. Seriously, working with Dr. Sims has been better than therapy!
We recently had Dr. Sims speak to all our employees during one of our quarterly meetings. These communication meetings are an important source of company updates (financial, technology, etc.) as well as employee and community service recognition, etc. We always try to make them entertaining, and fun and include meaningful and inspirational messages or themes. Although we have had many good meetings over the years, the meeting with Dr. Sims was probably the best one ever. The basic message (i.e., never being satisfied, and avoiding complacency) could have been delivered by a few of us here on staff. However, Dr. Sims was able to deliver the message in a way that got everyone engaged, inspired, excited, and committed to new levels, and more so that we could have done ourselves. He included specifics about our company, processes, and people that really made it personal, relatable, and connected. We had many requests to bring him back again – we will, but, not too often (lol), because he is a hard act to follow!

Dr. Walter Sims is called the Minister of Motivation for a reason! When you listen to him online, he is great. When you get his motivational emails, they are great. When he speaks to your group in person, he is AWESOME! His words of inspiration tied to his keys of motivation bring about transformation. In August 2017 we invited Dr. Walter Sims to speak at our annual leader’s conference “Elevate”. His words along with the plans for action that he challenged us with are still causing us to excel. Dr. Sims was the motivation that we needed to transform.

Since I started my coaching sessions with Dr. Sims, I have received a clearer picture of my life. He is helping me to look back on some unresolved issues from the past to become the highest and best expression of myself. I am given weekly assignments that I do alone to help me take a truthful look at myself. In just a short time, I see
improvement and I have more joy in my life.

Coaching is not therapy! Meeting Dr. Sims was one of the great turning points in my life. I always had a deep faith and knew my purpose but still battled worry, overthinking, perfectionism, and several other self-imposed stumbling blocks. With Doc’s help my outlook changed, my faith deepened, even more, my worry and anxiety were replaced with faith that my steps were ordered and I am doing more for myself than ever! I went through some of the hardest battles of my life since meeting Doc almost two years ago and overcame it all. Challenges that would have broken me years prior were tackled with peace, patience, and a smile. People around me notice the difference, and most importantly I notice it. I find motivation and accountability in his broadcasts each and every day as he freely gives his time. A deeper understanding can be found in all his classes beginner to advanced when you apply yourself. Re-reading my class notes and quotes over time has kept me inspired and ever working to the next level. He’s worth it, and so are you!
I am so grateful for Dr. Walter Walter Simms Coaching and Accountability. He has a unique ability with his wisdom and Intuitive skill set to help you see limitations that you can’t see on your own. He pushes and guides you with love and compassion to help you wake up to a higher level of consciousness so that you can unleash your potential and move forward into your greatness.
Working with Dr. Walter Sims and taking his “Get Yo Life” class had impacted my life. It would take an entire page to fill. Having Dr. Sims as my coach; I am more confident, clear, and sure of myself. I’ve always had these traits, but working with Dr. Sims helped me to let go and recognize my Greatness. Where ever I’m at in this life, I will always consider Dr. Walter Sims my Coach!!!
Dr. Sims is a Motivational Speaker, among other things!! It was virtually impossible for me to choose only three of the above attributes!! I have been the General Manager of a Water Park for 33 years, and therefore have to hire and train over 70 young people each summer. We realized quite some time ago that we needed to bring in a professional to work with the staff on Customer Service Skills. Sadly, we didn’t find Dr. Sims, “the Minister of Motivation,” until last summer, but working with him has been absolutely the best thing we have done in order to give our staff the skills they need to be able to be as customer-friendly as they can possibly be!!! This man is so outgoing, friendly, and subtle in how he grabs hold of the kids and gets them excited, buying into what he is working with them on, that they don’t even realize what’s happening until they are suddenly having FUN learning how to be great employees!! I have worked with many good customer service professionals, but honestly, there is just no comparison. I don’t want to lead you to believe that this is the only thing he does. I have watched videos on his website, where he is working with adults, and addressing a myriad of business issues, in addition to customer service. I would strongly encourage all Managers who need any type of motivational training for their employees to contact Dr. Sims. If he doesn’t think he can do the best job for you, I would bet that he will point you in the direction of someone who can.

Dr. Sims is a great mentor! He is a great listener and extremely effective at presenting an objective picture so that you can move your life and business forward. With a heart as big as gold and a sincere spirit in helping others, I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a mentee with Dr. Sims.

I remember hearing a jovial sound while waiting to board a flight to Detroit. I turn around to see who is the person with all this highly vibrating energy. I noticed a man having a fun conversation and just laughing so soulfully. Little did I know he would be standing next to me when it was time to board the plane. Even better he sat next to me. We sparked a conversation and discovered we are both Life Coaches. Yet, I was in the process of getting the ball rolling more consistently in my practice. After a good 45 mins of chatting it away on the plane, we are informed we cannot take off due to mechanical issues. We continued our exchanges of stories, desires, and dreams. When we heard we have to disembark the aircraft. While waiting patiently to get off Dr. Sims said, “I want to help you by doing a weekly 15-minute check-in. No charge. I see the potential in you and this is my gift to you.” I opened my calendar locked it in. Needless to say, I did not make it to Detroit that day. However, I was rewarded with a greater gift and that was someone to sow a seed into my life. Within 2 months of working with Dr. Sims, my business was fully up and running. 6 months later he is still sowing a seed into my life and business. He is so supportive, full of infectious energy, has a very unique way of coaching and it fills you with energy. Most recently Dr. Sims volunteered to extend another branch in assisting me and I am so forever grateful.
Dr. Sims thank you for your blessing.
