Growth, Experience, & Awareness Isn’t Linear: Don’t Let Your Wind Get Knocked Out of You

The impact you have on others across and beyond your lifetime depends on your personal growth, experience, and awareness you create within it. While seemingly slow at first, each becomes exponential… If you choose so. But if you allow your mind to knock the wind out of you, or allow others to do the same, your growth, experience, and awareness will be minimized. Don’t allow Your Blind Spots to prevent you from experiencing the moments in life you are meant to have… Choose the destiny you desire… And then take it.

Jim Click’s Corporate Kickoff

When it was finally my turn to go, this gentleman came up to me, said they were running a little behind schedule, and if I could crank my speech out in 15 minutes… I confidently said, “Absolutely,” but I felt doomed. Nervous beyond belief, my body began shaking. I was shaking so bad, I just knew everyone could see my hands trembling and me sweating. Watch the video to find out how the presentation was received…

I had the pleasure of having Tanner as our keynote speaker at our annual awards event. Tanner
was very professional and responsive throughout the process. He has a gift for taking his
story and delivering it with charisma that will engage and challenge an audience. Tanner is
truly committed to his craft. This shows on stage and many attendees commented positively on
his program. You can tell speaking is a passion for Tanner. He continued providing value up
until the very end. I highly recommend Tanner as a professional speaker

Executive Director Linkages

As a man who has served with the finest Airborne/Rangers in Combat in Vietnam, been
successful in Business and has taught in The Honors College at The University of Arizona for
16 years (a subject that is very meaningful to me – LEADERSHIP), I consider myself a pretty
good judge of character and I have seen Tanner in his element. As a speaker, I have seen him
mesmerize students to the point you can hear a pin drop, and their pores are literally
absorbing every word that comes from this man's lips. He is an inspiration to all he comes in
contact with and you would be Blessed to have him in front of any audience. He is a man you
will never ever forget and his words will be an inspiration to all in his presence. TANNER
GERS COMES WITH MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
