MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
When you stop improving, innovating and accept mediocrity, you have dropped out of the game of life. When you choose this route, you can expect nothing but the worst because you have given up the greatest gift of all: life purpose and the power to improve yourself by striving to become the best at what you do. Difficult times and daily routines can cause you to lose the drive for being the best at what you do. Stay In It! re-energizes and reawakens the passion for excellence that is necessary to create the highest version of yourself and move from average to outstanding! The transformation starts with knowing what type of attitude and work philosophy you currently have. What type of attitude and work philosophy will it take to cultivate excellence, and what type of attitude and work philosophy do you want? Stop making excuses. Set a new attitude goal, create an empowering work philosophy, take action using the 7 Stay In It steps, and enjoy the journey.
Using a highly passionate, direct approach, Darin motivates, enlightens and entertains the audience. His dynamic delivery and eye-opening content captivates and engages any audience. Each audience member takes home new tools, motivation and practical steps that will help them incorporate Darin’s message into everyday life.
Darin challenges each person to take a hard look at their attitude, work philosophy and results and determine if they are conducive to striving to be the best. The objective of this program is for each person to improve their performance and maintain the drive for excellence and being the best at what they do.

The quotes below are representative of the theme and message of the Stay In It! Program:
“What is success? I think it is a mixture of having a flair for the thing that you are doing; knowing that it is not enough, that you have got to have hard work and a certain sense of purpose.”
“Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have a habit of making excuses.”
“When you have a strong purpose to be the best at what you do, hard work isn’t so hard. It’s just a necessity.”
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.”
“Hard work is painful when your job is devoid of purpose. All work has purpose. So you don’t have to change jobs; you just have to change your mind about the work you do. Then hard work becomes a labor of love, and you are fully alive again!”
“Happiness is the real sense of fulfillment that comes from hard work.”
“Being a pessimist is just an excuse for laziness.”
“Success or failure in business is caused more by the mental attitude even than by mental capacities.”
-Sir Walter Scott
“Our attitude and work philosophy will affect much more than our performance. It will determine how we walk and talk and what kind of people we are…BECAUSE we are our attitude.”
Anything is possible!
Creating The Highest version of yourself!
Research studies have proven that optimistic people in every industry and profession are better leaders, team workers and managers. It is now scientifically proven that optimistic people are harder and smarter workers than those who are pessimists. They are also healthier and live longer lives, even though they work more than pessimistic people. A pessimistic attitude severely hinders a person’s ability to achieve peak performance. This seems rather obvious. Yet, many organizations fail to take serious action to help the people in their organizations learn the skills to create an optimistic mindset.
Through consistent optimistic expansion, we align ourselves with the creative power of our mind that gives as the ability to go up, over, around and through any setback, disappointment, conflict or problem and take our performance and life to the next level.
This is what the Anything Is Possible program is all about: never accepting a problem or challenge as unchangeable and pervasive. Doing everything we can right where we are with what we have at the present time to create a higher level of performance and create the highest version of ourselves. It’s about no limitations or excuses. This program generates a negative-free mindset. You will learn 3 powerful steps that will have your audience well on their way to increasing and maintaining an optimistic attitude that unleashes untapped potential and creativity and helps create performance excellence.
MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM
When it comes to performance excellence, optimism is everything. When we truly believe that anything is possible, we become in alignment with our human potential and power. We become fully alive and it improves all aspects of our lives. People who are optimistic & confident:
- believe that they can do anything they put their mind to. They believe they can improve their performance and be one of the best at what they do.
- are less likely to blame others and give up the first time something goes wrong.
- are more creative and see the possibilities and opportunities that other people do not.
- are unbreakable and get excited about overcoming challenges rather than discouraged by them. They bounce back more quickly after failure or rejection.
- are exceptional leaders and inspire the people around them towards a shared vision or goal.
- adjust to change more easily and aren’t afraid to learn new things.
There has been countless studies on optimism, and they all come to the same conclusion that optimism is good for our health! Optimists have less stress, live longer and perform better in all areas of life.

Change Happens. Winners Adjust!
HOW TO STAY CALM, FOCUSED AND DRIVEN DURING CHANGING TIMES
To improve in any area of business or life, change must occur. With mergers, acquisitions, re-engineering, re-strategizing, re-focusing, and difficult economies the era of predictability is over. Add to the mix the shortening time span of the surprise of change and the fact that change is the new business norm. Almost all industries and organizations are constantly forced to do more with less and continually improve process and product. What this all means is that everyone in your organization must embrace change.
In Change Happens, Winners Adjust!, the turnaround and enlightenment start with a self audit of your change-adeptness. Learn three things you can do to immediately become more adept at mastering the change process. Darin shows you how to gain control of yourself during times of change and how to control change instead of change controlling you.
MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Successful people and organizations are those that initiate and embrace change! Yet most people view change as a setback, and by doing so attract frustration, fear, difficulty, and failure. Change Happens and Winners Adjust! empowers and shows your people how to become change-adept professionals who are resilient and not only survive change, but flourish in changing times. Darin gives the audience step-by-steps tools and practical information they can use immediately to bring about lasting, healthy individual and organizational change.
Any professionals and/or organizations that are in the process of change and want to not only survive change, but flourish and stay positive and driven in changing times.
