You are the hero of your own life story. But do you live like a hero? Or are you weighed down with anxiety? Are you enjoying the rich fulfillment and boundless confidence that knowing your purpose gives? Or does frustration hold you back from the full potential that you know you are capable of?
We are each inspired by great stories that speak to us, but the ancient power of myth must be deliberately harnessed to bring its full benefit your life. You must become both the hero and the storyteller to take control of your identity. Those who live their own hero’s journey greet every day as an adventure, and all this is possible no matter who you are.
My program called Live Your Hero's Journey draws on my background in popular media like Star Wars and Indiana Jones, but also on all that I have learned in my personal investigations of history's greatest achievements, from the pyramids to the Apollo moon landings. This program takes life lessons from astronauts and ancient sages, epic heroes and my own unconventional "Renaissance career" to deliver a motivational message for all ages.
In this talk I reveal the secrets of confidence that empowered my multi-million-selling success as a New York Times #1 Star Wars author. I share the specific techniques that took me everywhere I dreamed of going, all over the world. I also show how using the power of the classic hero's journey myth got me through my own “valley of the shadow of death," when a rare blood condition destroyed the life I had built and left me an invalid for most of ten years.
Each of us is the hero of our own life story, but only those who understand this are the unstoppable masters of their challenges, free from crippling anxiety, and living each day fully as an adventure with confidence and courage. No matter where you are in life, at a high point or at the lowest, this program points the way ahead to new frontiers with encouragement, inspiration, and hope.
The kind of guidance and encouragement that this speaker program offers is all too rare, which is why university students and faculty endorse Dr. Reynolds' approach so strongly.
"In an age of cynicism, students of all backgrounds showed how thirsty they are for the optimism Dr. Reynolds conveyed. He inspired them, encouraged them, made them laugh, and embodied how to find joy in exploring the world.
Students raved about his storytelling, his unique experiences, and about how personable he is.
I recommend David West Reynolds' speaker program for students of any age, but particularly for students in the early years of college who often are pressured to conform to others’ expectations rather than believe in, and work for, a journey that is right for them."
—Prof. Pedar W. Foss, DePauw University
"I can’t begin to express the positive impact the event with Dr. David West Reynolds had on me. From time to time I get to read about scholars and other amazing people in the news, but to be able to sit down and talk to a “Renaissance Man” like Dr. Reynolds was just a fabulous experience. This was clearly one of the highlights of my year.”
—Morgan C., Drake High School Student, California
I wanted to reach out to thank you for being an advocate, that one voice to express the urgency of following your passions and not falling into the trap of complacency. Your presentations were truly inspiring. You have emboldened me and given me courage to explore and find out where my interests lie while still remaining grounded.
