Motivational Insights by Dr Des

Initial thoughts

Category: Motivation

After much encouragement from my family and friends to pursue being a motivational speaker I decided to act. How this came about was my sister and nephew worked for a realty company in South Africa. One day she asked me to come with her to her place of work to meet the owners. After meeting the owners and the excitement that was stimulated between us they asked me to do a motivational meeting with their staff. I agreed! The response was overwhelming to my presentation. Soon after this meeting my nephew decided to act on what he had heard from me and resigned his position at the real estate company. In so doing he started his own real estate company and is very successful today. When I met with my nephew last year at his business, deBruto Real Estate, his words to me were, “Uncle Des I was the only one listening to you that day you spoke and decided to act!”

I recall that Scripture says that it is better to use the talent one has received rather than to bury it. The gift the Lord has given me is one of teaching and exhortation. This gift will induce motivational insights to stimulate the new life Christ has given each one of us into decisive action for our daily living. Jesus also said that man cannot live on bread alone, but, on every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Therefore, with this in mind my intent is to fan that smoldering wick into a flame for all to see as you, the hearer, become a doer of His Word.
