"People would say, “Shawn, you're a failure... you're dumb… you're a loser.” I failed the first grade. I stuttered my entire childhood, and kids called me names. I was even voted most likely to fail by my high school peers. I was marked.
It was cruel, but I CHOSE to use it as fuel.
I CHOSE to listen to my inner voice.
I CHOSE to focus on winning.
Winners exist internally.
You have to CHOOSE your true identity.
You have to CHOOSE to focus on your dream.
You were born to WIN––– IF you CHOOSE it.
I bring everything I know about winning to my game on stage. Never a dull moment. I'll take you out of your seat and onto the playing field with me. Everything I learned in the NFL locker room is fair game in the boardroom and in life. Winning is about pouring yourself into your hopes and dreams and being able to share it with other people: corporations, organizations, individuals, youth, families. It's about legacy. It's about changing the world."
