Don’t Tell Me What’s Wrong; Tell Me What You’re Doing About It

As a motivational speaker, I live in a world of helping people get unstuck. And while it is EXTREMELY important to acknowledge where you are truly stuck, it is MORE important to turn your focus on what you are doing about it. So stop talking about what's wrong, and start talking about what you are doing about it. THAT'S where things start to turn around and you start to find your way out of the pot hole.


Motivational Speaker Kelly Swanson - called one of North Carolina's funniest women by Our State Magazine. Kelly lifts the spirits of audiences from coast-to-coast using humor, storytelling, and lives of the characters from Prides Hollow - Kelly's make believe small town. This unique approach to motivational speaking allows Kelly to break through communications barriers and connect directly to the audience's imagination.
Her powerful stories and wacky wit will make you laugh, remind you that you matter, show you how to see beyond your obstacles, and teach you how to stand up and stick out in a crowded market.

  1. Right on! As motivational speakers I think part of our job is to help people recognize those places where they are "camping out" in the problem.  And yes, it sure can feel good to wallow around in the issue sometimes.  I have discovered that one of the greatest things a person can do when things go wrong is to start focusing as quickly as possible on SOLUTIONS.  THOSE types of people are very valuable to a workplace!  Well said, Kelly!

  2. Agree. So many of us get stuck in our story even when we think we're writing new chapters. I've got a few stories that need some major editing, so off I go to re-write!

  3. Getting un-stuck – what a great concept!  That's why I love this time of year.  Let go of the old, make space for the new.  Things are looking brighter already!  Thanks Kelly!

  4. This is so true, Kelly!  Just yesterday, as I waited 3 1/2 hours in ER with my hustband who fell off our roof (he's fine, blog to follow) I encountered a woman who was "working it" in her victim pothole.  Wait, this is another great blog! Let me just suffice it to say that she was far from looking for a solution because everyone around her was aiding and abetting her situation, myself included.  Thank you, Kelly, for reminding all of us to figure out a course of action whenever we get stuck.
