RU-DY, RU-DY, RU-DY - The Hero of Notre Dame Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger: There''s a Hero Inside of You! Against all odds Daniel "Rudy" Ruettiger carved his name into history books as perhaps the most famous graduate of the University of Notre Dame. As fans cheered RU-DY, RU-DY, he sacked the quarterback on the only play of his college football career and is the only player in the school''s history to be carried off the field on his teammates'' shoulders. Today, he is one of the most popular motivational speakers in the U.S..
Unlock the Hero Inside Yourself, Greg Mooers, background in electrical engineering, quantum physics & psychological evolution by applying insights gained from studying the lives of heroes like Gandhi, Abe Lincoln, Einstein and Martin Luther King. Greg spent more than 15,000 hours in silent meditation during his eight years as a monk. During that time, he studied the lives of heroes like Gandhi, Einstein and Martin Luther King and discovered the three skills they all possessed that allowed them to make powerful contributions to humanity. These people lived their Heart Virtues--Einstein was motivated by "Creativity and Curiosity", Abe Lincoln was motivated by “Unity”, Gandhi was motivated by "Peaceful Liberation" and Martin Luther King was motivated by “Brotherhood”. What is it for you? Is it "Loyalty" or "Honesty" or "Freedom”? Greg trains people to master these same three skills that these heroes of our time knew, so everyone can have the clarity and confidence to make their own powerful contribution.
Awaken the Hero, Aaron Huey, part warrior, part poet, part heavy metal cheerleader, is an internationally known speaker and empowerment coach known as one of "The Bad Boys of Good." A walking example of a man living his true power and purpose, Aaron''s "waaaay out of the box” techniques have helped thousands move through self-imposed obstacles and reach their desired levels of happiness and success. Aaron first gained national attention when he led the Predicament component of the Enlightened Warrior Training Camps for T. Harv Eker, an intensely challenging process that teaches participants to embrace their unrealized inner strength and potential.
