Motivation on Wheels Keynotes for Disability Awareness Month at St. Paul College

St. Cloud -- St. Paul College has booked GL Berg Entertainment’s Aaron Cross and Motivation On Wheels Professional Public Speaking for the keynote presentation kicking off Disability Awareness Month at St. Paul College, St. Paul, Minn. Aaron’s nationally known and award-winning presentation “FOCUS on Your Target” will target the stage Monday, Oct. 1, 2012 at 11:30 a.m.
For the last 21 years Aaron Cross, in some way shape or form, has been entertaining and leaving audiences inspired with his power-packed performance of overcoming adversity and disability, by creating opportunities through his abilities.
Many people around the country say that, “… if Cross’ accident happened to me, it would have easily been a life-ending accident.” However, this is where Cross is different than most. “It was not a “life-ending accident; it is a character-building accident,” Cross says. He goes on to say, “My chair didn’t end my life; it helps me create my life.”
Cross, all be it “jaw dropping” at times while on stage, tells a story of tribulations to triumphs, heart breaking moments, to heart pulsing, you-have-got-to-be-kidding-me emotions, and his archery shot will make you stand on your feet to not miss a single millisecond. Aaron’s performance of persuasion and personal power will keep you at the edge of your seat.
Aaron Cross takes passion, performance and presentation to a whole new level of inspiration — 60 minutes to change the way you think, feel and live your life.

focusonyou: “It is going to be a great day!”

focusonyou: “It is going to be a great day!”: “It is going to be a great day!” It is going to be a great day! I did something yesterday which most people think I do eve...

“It is going to be a great day!”

“It is going to be a great day!”

It is going to be a great day! I did something yesterday which most people think I do everyday; no it is not walking (my friend Carisa says I’m faking this whole thing.) No, I actually followed my calendar and finished everything that was on it for that day, including all my chart notes — “It is going to be a great day!”

Most people look at others, myself included and ask questions such as; how do they get everything done, what are they doing that is so different than me, how do I become better at this? These are valid questions for anyone and by anyone that wants to be great at something.

Answer: Are you sure you are ready for this answer? You might be shocked to what it is, you might even say something to the affect of “What! That can’t be it!” My response to that would and will be, “I’m sorry, but that is the answer.”

Here it is — Ask for help.

“It is going to be a great day!”

Always Sitting Always in Motion


Told you, it is that simple; just ask for help.

PS. Carisa, yeah I really can't walk

Tosca Reno: Eating Clean is a Life Changer - For Family Too!

Tosca Reno: Eating Clean is a Life Changer - For Family Too!

It has been awe inspiring for me to watch my friend create a new world of opportunities, not only for herself; which in my opinion is the most important, but also for others.

Yes, I might be slightly biased, however, having first hand experience of watching Kristi's passion help others to create, excel and bring to fruition is nothing short of life altering.

The choice to change is a hard one. One of my closest and most cherished friends made the decision to work with Kristi. Personal drive made my cherished friend want to change; and with Kristi's guidance, I believe she has made it.

“Because it Feels Good”

Lately there has been something eating at me; a sense of, well, dare I say disgust. Not towards others but towards myself and as many of us know, having a negative sense of self-worth only leads to a negative lifestyle.

I have always said that I would be brutally honest; not to mention outspoken when I write these blogs. My writings are not to offend, but to actually give people the clear vision that life is not always satisfaction and glory. In fact, like many things, it’s a real pain in the ass! I know, shocker, right? What most people do not know about me is, I have a very low self-image of my appearances — particularly my “Quad Belly.”

In the past, I eat right, done/do athletics; from swimming to racing, weightlifting to shooting sports; but it never seems to be enough. Meaning, I have yet to accomplish my desired look (weight.) So like most people, I start out like gang busters train eat right and try and get myself to my desired look.

For the last two weeks, I have been going out in my racing chair with a long life friend of mine — we will call him Brad. I have got to be honest — IT SUCKS DICK!
All the hassle, getting up early, adding something more into my schedule, the frustrations of getting in and out of the chairs and to top it off; being out there and having to keep going and it not being like it use to be. “It just SUCKS!”

Yet for some reason, Brad and I are out there trying to better ourselves for many different reasons. What it came down too today, I had no speed, I felt way overweight and it was just damn frustrating — but we finished.

Finish because it makes you feel better; Finish, because you started. Finish because, had we not gone out this morning, a sense of failure would start to set in; and of course, that leads into missing another day, then another and then we get to start all over again.

My ramblings today might be confusing, but today, I wanted all of you to know, that everyone has crap days, everyone has bad performances; everyone at some point starts to think about stopping; don’t! Just get back out there again. You started for a reason — “Because it Feels Good.”

Bad day, Bad week, Bad year, we all have them; just get back out there, “Because it Feels Good” in the end.
