How to Start Each Day with an Unstoppable Attitude to Succeed Regardless of Your Circumstances!

The word THIS in the title refers to you. How motivated are you on any given day? One of the biggest challenges we face today both professionally and personally is staying motivated and enthusiastic for more than just a few days. This one-of-a-kind presentation introduces Common Sense Success Strategies that will take you to a better place in business and in life. We go through the course of our lives and allow circumstances, events, situations and people to suck the energy right out of us. With the right strategies, we can bounce back, take control and forge ahead. MOTIVATE THIS is filled with Steve Rizzo’s distinctive brand of humor, insightful stories and mind-altering strategies that will elevate your overall degree of motivation, regardless of your circumstances. It’s an indispensable tool for maximizing your success and happiness.

  • The significance of the phrase “You Become What You Think About.”
  • The spark that ignites passion and enthusiasm.
  • The fuel that drives motivation.
  • The importance of developing a set of “feel good” habits.
  • The biggest challenge people in sales face today is staying optimistic and motivated to be at their best for more than just a few days.

    “Nothing keeps salespeople from being productive and achieving their sales goals more than harboring negative feelings or having a bad attitude during the process.” – Steve Rizzo

    Studies have shown that our brain has a negative bias. We tend to fixate on what isn’t working in life rather than focusing on the positive factors. Motivate THIS! is a guide to shifting your sales team’s thought process so they are programmed for success – regardless of their circumstances. It provides them with a foundation to stand on when the nuts and bolts fail and the ratio of “Nos” outweighs the “Yeses.”

    Steve’s Common Sense Success Strategies will enable your sales team to transform their perspective so they can view challenges and setbacks through a more positive lens.


  • SHIFT their way of thinking to get the results they want.
  • Train themselves to feel good, be resilient and stay motivated throughout the day. Every day!
  • Develop skills that will eliminate the Curse of Negative Self-Talk.
  • Improve their focus and commitment to achieving their sales goals.
  • Enjoy the journey toward their goals.
  • How to Think, Laugh & Enjoy Your Way to Success in Business & in Life

    This entertaining and content-rich program reveals the secrets of how to SHIFT your focus and way of thinking to create permanent change and a lasting positive attitude. Only the optimistic persevere, and Steve delivers the strategies necessary for tapping into the positive reserves that enable us not only to achieve our goals, but to enjoy the journey of life, both personally and professionally.

  • Winning ways of thinking that change obstacles into opportunities.
  • Seeing the brighter alternative to a potentially negative situation.
  • What true leaders know that 99% of ordinary people don’t.
  • – For Education Groups –
    After being told by a guidance counselor that he didn’t have the intelligence to make it through college and then being saddled with the dubious high school honor of “Least Likely to Succeed,” Steve Rizzo didn’t give himself much of a chance to emerge as anything special, much less an honors college graduate, a teacher, a counselor for students with behavioral problems, a national headline comedian, an author and a Hall of Fame Speaker.

    Steve teaches educators how to acquire the attitude they need to achieve their goals in and out of the classroom while actually enjoying the process! “Enjoyment is the spark that ignites passion and enthusiasm,” Steve says. “Teaching without passion and enthusiasm is merely going through the motions. Passion and enthusiasm give you the strength to go the extra mile that could make a difference in a young person’s life.”

    Let Steve show your group how to perform and deliver far beyond their expectations, individually and as a team.


  • Start each day with an unstoppable attitude to succeed.
  • Have fun and enjoy the process.
  • Create new ways of thinking that will turn obstacles into opportunities.
  • Shift their focus to see a brighter alternative to a negative situation.
