Please tell me you’ve seen ‘Cheer’ on Netflix. If not, you should. Like right now. 😉
All kidding aside, the docuseries introduces viewers to the world of competitive college cheerleading through the stories of the Navarro College cheer squad and their coach, Monica Aldama, who has 14 NCA championships under her belt.
The team has subsequently won its way in to the hearts of many and showed us what we’ve been missing all this time – “mat talk”.
“Mat talk” consists of encouraging words or cues team members shout to one another, usually from the sidelines. Do you need some “mat talk” in your life? Our incredible speakers have you covered!
Pick your favs and shout us out on social. We’d love to connect about your next event!
|Vulnerability and authenticity are about becoming more of who you already are and tapping into your unique strengths, not molding yourself into the person you think others want you to be. Building emotional resilience requires us to get comfortable with ambiguity and the unknown. It means that we risk being hurt but are still willing to forge ahead into the unknown because ahead is the only way to go.|

When you have an alive idea, the kind of idea that lights you up and give you energy, and you can’t stop thinking about it. You connect with its life force energy, and vice versa. The idea gives you energy as you give it energy, keeping it alive in the world. The question is: Can you step out of the way enough to allow the idea to live through you?
– Suzy Batiz, The New Yorker
When we get proactive with how we are showing up in the world, when we take control of our own personal narrative and have a system in place which can both attract more suitable opportunities for us to shine, and filter those that are already at our feet to give us more focus, amazing things will start to happen.

Your best life is on the other side of that fear you’re feeling, so make a commitment to show up—time and time again. And when you do show up, always remember that the best way to GET is to GIVE. Solve other people’s problems, and you’ll have an army ready to solve your own. Get out there and win the day!

When it comes to the meaning of success, a lot of words come to mind—stability, prosperity, achievement and more—but what would success be without joy? Joy is one of the most important values that success should be founded upon. If you aren’t happy while you’re attempting to achieve your goals, then you’ll lose the fulfillment of success all together. So as you’re working to achieve your own version of success, remember to stay true to your values and to find the joy in whatever it is that you are doing. If you do that, you might be surprised at the results.
– Leanne Jacobs, Spiritually Shifted
The simplest way to find your passion is to think with your heart. What lights you up? What gets you excited? Once you’re able to identify what those are, start to key in on where you get that consistent feeling of drive and desire to get things done, and that’s it. What role does purpose play in business? Without an idea of knowing where you’re going, you can be knocked onto any which path that comes your way. Having a sense of purpose serves as almost your guiding star—you know which direction you’re headed, you know why you’re doing it and you can communicate that to others.
– Peter Yobo, Millennial “Voice”
Unless you are doing surgery, there is no such thing as a mistake. It is all in how you react to things. Being fearless and exemplifying courage in the face of ignorance. Don’t overthink. Success is a mindset. Don’t ever be afraid to ask for more.
