CORE MESSAGE – LIVING A MOTIVATED LIFE
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 an 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 of 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!!
