Sponge! You Reap What You Soak

Want the X Factor? It could be closer than you think.

“You are the average of the five people
you spend the most time with.”
~ Jim Rohn

How can you get the X factor?
We all have access to the same information.
We can all read the same books. We can all find mentors.
Why are our outcomes so radically different?

Ever wonder HOW YOU BECOME WHO YOU BECOME? What made me, me? Was it nurture or nature? Both play a role along with the choices you made in the past. Sponge will show you that with a little effort you can change your future.

Why do some people grow rapidly while others struggle? Why do a few people succeed and others remain in mediocrity despite huge effort? It sometimes doesn’t seem fair.

Who is your hero’s hero? Who inspired the person who inspired you?

 

These powerful insights combined with your desire to truly be your best will have a profound impact on what you do and how you do it.

You are about to find out what the X factor is and how can you get it.
You’ll get a new perspective about your life from two simple bowls of water.

In 1992, Darren LaCroix bombed miserably in a Boston comedy club. The headline comedian that night told him, “Don’t quit your day job.”

For no good, logical reason, 9 years later Darren outspoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to become the World Champion of Public Speaking. Darren had many mentors and heroes along his way. They filled him with insights and new perspectives, and he was an intentional sponge.

You’ll find out how he made the subtle changes that took his career in a new direction. The naysayers in his life had more influence than he realized. They helped make it clear that he needed to make changes, and he realized that he needed to change his thinking and ultimately change his results.

Are you a sponge?
What is really filling you?

In this program, you’ll discover these insights:

  • An unforgettable story behind a world-class athlete
  • That you don’t have to be a hero to inspire a hero
  • How ego can dramatically stunt your growth

You’ll understand what you do each day and how you already do it.
It will shed light on potential changes that you can make to increase your own X factor.

If you think you’ve heard Darren before — think again.
People at this presentation who’ve seen him present many times before, said…

“I remember feeling like he was talking directly to me. Like he got me. He was inspiring me, telling me to keep going, and to pay attention to what I soaked up and whom I soaked it up from. For me it was the best presentation of the conference. When he did the magic trick making the water change color, it had a major impact on me, to virtually see visually what he was explaining in words. I felt privileged to receive a sponge to take home as a reminder of his presentation, and 11 months later that sponge still sits on my desk as a reminder: what am I soaking up? Thanks, Darren. You are in inspiration!” ~ Linda Bradley, CC, ALB

“Darren gives an inspired and enthusiastic performance. Darren describes in a simple, visual, and memorable manner the importance of associating with whom and what you wish to become. His presentation motivated me to take another look at where I’m spending my time and efforts and might motivate you to do the same.” ~ Elaine Lung

“Darren LaCroix’s entertaining speech ‘Sponge’ contains a wonderful message. To grow, we need to learn all we can from those who have gone before us. I had the pleasure of seeing these speeches live and was inspired both times. Highly recommended.” ~ Jeffrey Purtee
