This program is perfect for:  All Audiences

In this inspiring presentation, Dave Davlin shares how he refused to be limited by his own personal struggles and reassures the audience that even though handicaps exist, we do not have to be handicapped by them.


- Audiences will learn the various forms in which handicaps exist

- Audiences will identify their own personal handicaps and recognize the present and potential effect of being controlled by them

- Audiences will learn how to succeed in spite of and even through these handicaps

"I have found this program to be effective for people from all walks of life ranging from managers, employees, students and even parents ... anyone wanting to rise above their own limitations and aspire to new and higher levels of success, fulfillment and contribution.


As humans, we operate in a world filled with distractions. The overload of media intake, the need to be all things to all people and the "speed of sound" pace at which we are living are all factors that can rob us of our potential-and stifle our creativity. What if we could tune out the negativity and chaos and focus solely on the truly important? What if we could discover and act upon the one thing that would make our lives and careers extraordinary? In this eye-opening presentation, Dave leads audiences through a nine-step journey of self-discovery and mastery...a journey toward extraordinary results.


  • Developing and utilizing the power of focus to produce desired outcomes
  • Recognizing and diffusing limiting beliefs and fears
  • Taking consistent action and harnessing the true power of time


Society has taught us to measure our lives in years. Although convenient in some respects, the truth remains that we become who we are and end up where we are based on the things we do every day. If we measured our lives in days instead of years, would it change our perspective and our decisions? In this powerful, thought-provoking presentation, Dave examines the perception of time and challenges the audience to make the most of every moment of this limited resource to increase productivity and improve the overall quality of life.

  • Gaining a new perspective on the gift and resource of time
  • Challenging yourself to consciously make each day meaningful and memorable
  • Seizing every opportunity to create value for those you love and those you serve
