DN120: Simon T. Bailey: SPARK - Release Your Inner Brilliance

The DreamNation Podcast With Casanova Brooks

Do you feel like the many, who feels like you haven’t found your voice? Our podcast guest for today, Simon T Bailey, felt just like that when he was younger. His parents did everything they can to support him, but he was failing all the classes and sports he went into. He even was suicidal at one point, and felt so bad about his situation. His turning point was when he’s 15 years old and his English teacher ask for him to write a speech for the entire school. His speech:  "It's Time For A Change", had become his impetus to finding his voice and finding his freedom. For a long time he felt that he was not good at anything. He was diagnosed with ADHD, which people call ‘hyperactive’ at his time. But today, he is a renowned speaker, author, life coach and entrepreneur. His journey, like any others’, isn’t all pretty. At one time, someone’s remark led him to want to commit suicide. Someone said to him that he was so dark and that he is nothing. For a span of time he felt his skin is a curse. He overcame this ‘comparison inferiority complex’, as what he calls it and the many other hurdles that came his way. In today’s episode, he is sharing how to overcome your roadblocks and to unleash your inner brilliance! This episode will not disappoint! Be sure to share this with your friends and families and together, let us release the brilliance that has always been in us. Believe that you too will find your voice, your brilliance and the freedom you’ve been searching. Here’s What You Missed What really holds us back? How will you get other people help you with your vision? How to be a good public speaker? What are the skills needed to succeed? The importance of having a dream You were born to be brilliant! Knowledge Nuggets Simon believe that all of us is born to be brilliant, we just got to harness and release it. Listen to this episode to understand how! [7:32] Finish what you start, but be open if it looks different than what you had imagined. So you have to be open for the pivots and the changes and the turns in the road to get to your destiny and dream and realize you're going to get there. [8:53] It's not who you are that holds you back. It's who you think you're not that holds you back. Sometimes you focus on who you think you're not instead of who you are. [9:00] Realize that the pigmentation of your skin doesn't prevent you or stop you. [10:24] The best hand that will feed you is the one at the end of your risks. So I had to begin to move into action and not wait for the hookup. [11:44] Sometimes opportunities are disguised as work. They're disguised as things you've never seen before, but the moment you see it, you won't unsee it. [13:22] If you help enough people get what you want, enough people will help you get what you want. So you've got to help others get what they want by asking them "help me help you". Another is when people achieve whatever, celebrate them. Because in celebrating them, they're going to help celebrate you. [14:07] Failure comes before success in the dictionary. So we learn quicker from failures. Realize that rejection is a gift and never forsake seasoning. [19:06] Speaking just really comes down to understanding how do you stand in your confidence and start with the conversation. Then how you move from the speech to the connection, because that's where it's at. [21:02] Answer the question. "What problem have you been created to solve?" Because in a  world of automation, algorithms, autonomous cars, artificial intelligence, men, and women that are going to be relevant for where the future is going have to really start with what problem have I been created to solve. What are the skills that I need for where the future is going? Skills needed for the future:   1. Creativity 2. Persuasion 3. Adaptability 4. Collaboration 5. Emotional intelligence [28:55] “Even if it's free before we get to fee, I would just show up and I would be everywhere because if you think about it, if you're really hungry, in the words of Les Brown, you probably could do five to six virtual webinars a day. And the free would lead to fee.” [32:36] VUCA: Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity. That's where the world is right now. So how do you help individuals get through the VUCA continuum? [35:22] Dreams are a snapshot of the future. There's a sneak preview of a coming attraction. A dream is a seed, that's sowed into the soil of tomorrow that will produce a harvest if you water it every day. [37:45] The well that you drink from is the well that you think from, and eventually it is the well that you emulate and become. [38:46] You were not born to fit in. You were born to be brilliant. [40:25] Knowledge is information, understanding is comprehension, but wisdom is application. Be mentored from a distance. Read their books, watch a video, listen to their podcasts. [43:06] There will never be a perfect time to become the person you might've been. You've got to make the move right now because there's something called timing and you don't want to miss your timing because everybody that's supposed to help you when you show up on time, they're there to usher you to the next step in your journey.
