Hi, I'm

Colton.

I'm a Motivational Speaker.

My mission is to inspire (1), motivate (2), and empower (3) others.

Three Words

INSPIRE

MOTIVATE

EMPOWER

 

Five Pillars

Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm is Greek, and it means 'to be filled with God.' I believe in taking on your mission with the force of the entire universe behind you; in pursuing your purpose with godlike power and energy. When people witness you living your every day, it should look like God himself is working through you. That's enthusiasm.

Inspiration

Inspiration comes from Latin, meaning 'to breathe into.' It originally meant 'impart a truth or idea to someone.' I am all about truth. I believe the truth that you are capable of so much more than what you see today. I believe that truth will lead the way. I believe in seeking truth, and breathing truth into other's lives.

Pursuit

Of all the truths I share, pursuit may be the greatest. Pursuit is the truth that right now, you are right where you need to be. Your purpose begins here, now. Every person's purpose is a pursuit; it's a journey. There is no destination of achievement; there is a new adventure every day. Our purpose is an eternal pursuit.

Passion

Passion is also Latin, meaning simply 'to suffer.' Passion is caring enough about something that it hurts. It's the energy that infuses change-makers because they see a need or injustice. It's the excitement that moves creators because they so deeply love their craft. Passion is the need to act; to do or do something about. 

Purpose

You have a purpose. 

You have a purpose, and it's yours alone. It's yours alone because your purpose is to fully express yourself, as effectively and powerfully as you possibly can. It is to express yourself through service. It is to express yourself through love. It is to express yourself in an eternal discovery of who you are. It's now. It's always. It's yours.

one vision

My vision is simple: to see every major cause of suffering eradicated in my lifetime.

 

Food shortages. Unsafe and unavailable drinking water. Preventable diseases. Slavery in all its forms. Extreme poverty. Cancer. Diseases with no known cause. Lifestyle diseases. Inequality.

 

Is it possible?

Of course, but there's no way I can do it.

That's why my mission is to inspire, motivate, and empower others.

 

There's someone out there with the cure for ALS. They just might not know it yet. They need to be inspired to see a greater vision of what's possible for them. 

 

There's a group of people who through their combined efforts will put an end to starvation. But they need to be motivated into action.

 

There's a person who can develop a policy powerful enough to put a complete end to inequality. But they need to be empowered to get the job done. 

 

My vision is to inspire, motivate, and empower YOU, the change-maker, to live out your purpose and change the world. To discover who you are, and what you were made to do. And to experience the joy of pursuing your purpose.

about me

 

My bio

Ok, if you really want to know more, you can read about me here!

I began speaking publicly at the age of 12. From the very first speech, I knew I'd found something that felt like...life! As Howard Thurman put it, "Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." When I speak, I come alive.

 

My first international speaking engagement was a 2 and a half week series of presentations in Nicaragua at the age of 18. A year later, I accepted a 1-year contract to speak and serve in Australia, where I met my wife, Joanna.

 

Today, I am an international speaker, trainer, and coach. I have been blessed to speak on 5 continents to audiences from every socioeconomic background and age group. I have experience speaking with translators, on radio, and on television. I've delivered speeches just about anywhere you can gather a group of people, from convention centers and meeting halls to campgrounds and courtyards. 

If there is a group of people hungry to get more out of life, I want to be there to inspire, motivate, and empower them to do it!  

And here...

I love speaking on health and wellness, performance strategies, and personal branding. My primary work is as a keynote speaker and breakout presenter. I also offer training seminars, online education (coming soon!), private coaching, and I'm in the process of publishing my first success education book.

 

Some of my favorite presentation topics include Discovering Your Purpose: How you can start living your dreams today; Creating Consistency: How to build success, one habit at a time; and Growing Where You're Planted: Leveraging your situation to build the future of your dreams.

 

I am proud to say that I am a professional member of the National Speakers Association, a member organization of the Global Speakers Federation. You can find me in their directories here and here.
