Our state of being dictates our destiny. When we are joyful, we bring more joy in to the world. When we are certain, we create more certainty. When we are intentional, we get from life what we intended. And, if there is a single, indicative guidepost to how we are feeling, what we are thinking, and what we are creating, it is that which we speak. As you read, understand, and begin to implement the framework of language outlined in this book, it will unlock a new potential and a new reality in every area of your life.

Speaker Biography

Thomas Blackwell travels the world as a keynote speaker and trainer inspiring people to change their language in order to change their results. He has given more than a thousand talks and workshops to corporations, executives, entrepreneurs, sales teams, athletes, religious groups, and students.

While attending Northern Arizona University on a music/voice scholarship, Blackwell competed in tennis and soccer and later coached tennis at the Division I Level. His business experience runs deep as he has owned and operated a successful seven-figure insurance agency with more than one hundred agents in three different locations. While realizing some significant success in business in 2004, he was asked to tell his story in seven minutes to a group of more than ten thousand people. His being requested to speak and inspire as a keynote and facilitator has never stopped since. This inevitably led him to this vocation he didn't even know was an option.

Above it all, Blackwell's greatest blessings from God are being married to his high school sweetheart, and being the father to four precious daughters.
