Have you ever taken a leap and said yes to an opportunity, even if you did not feel fully prepared for it? If so, did you find that it unlocked new opportunities that you otherwise may not have foreseen?

Early in her career, Naomi Rhode – our guest in Episode 96 of The MINDSet Game® podcast – accepted an opportunity to speak in front of several hundred professionals, despite her lack of public speaking experience at the time. While she easily could have declined, she was driven to share her passion about the topic at hand. Naomi’s willingness to say yes to the opportunity sparked an incredible career that has enabled her to inspire countless people as a renowned professional speaker.

In this episode, Naomi discusses the following:

  • The “Four S’s” that we traverse on the path to a fulfilling life – student, success, significance, and servant leader – and steps to take at each phase in order to ensure that you move on to the next
  • How to make the most of the “halftime” along your journey – the point at which you can examine your life and determine what you need to say yes or no to
  • Why you should consider establishing a mission statement for your life, just as organizations create mission statements to help guide their actions

Today, Naomi is a highly sought-after speaker who has appeared before audiences in every state and 15 countries. She’s also the President of the International Federation of Speakers, author of three inspirational books, Past President of the National Speakers Association, and one of the first women to receive the coveted Council of Peers Award of Excellence from the National Speakers Association for her outstanding speaking skills and professionalism.
