11 Amazing Speakers at the Seminar of the Century

Last week I attended a 3-day outdoor seminar organized by Peak Potential in the beautiful country of Aspen & Snowmass, Colorado.  The event was called the Seminar of the Century, the “Woodstock” of the mind & personal development. 

After three days of sitting under the warm bright sun of Colorado, I was burnt, dehydrated and exhausted.   Having said that, it was all worth it.  :)  The great feeling of learning and sharing with over two thousands people with a backdrop of stunningly beautiful Colorado’s Elk Range makes this experience unforgettable.  

I had the great pleasure learning from 11 amazing thinkers, trainers and speakers  in the areas of personal growth including:

Alan Cohen   Author of 20 bestselling inspirational books and CD’s, including the best-selling and the award-winning A. Alan appears regularly on national radio and television, including FOX, CNBC, and Good Morning America.  Alan’s talk was called ”10 Steps to Access the Guru in You”, click here for details.

 The second person (after Neil Armstrong) to set foot on the Moon on Apollo 11.  After Armstrong said his famous quote “That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.”, Buzz and Neil took the giant step and descended to the lunar surface on July 20, 1969.  To advance his lifelong commitment to venturing outward in space, Buzz founded a nonprofit organization devoted to opening the doors to space tourism for everyone.

Michael E. Gerber   Business visionary, entrepreneur, best selling author of his book and Chairman of E-Myth Worldwide.  Michael is a true small business revolutionist.  Michael encouraged us to be the change for the world to create an economy helping other people to flourish.  He gave the example of Muhammad Yunus and how he helped the poor in Bangladeshi by creating the concept of micro loan. He challenged us to think about the true meaning of our business and our life, click here for more lesson learn from Michael.

  One of my favorite trainers and speakers, Brian worked with over 1,000 companies and addressed more than four millions people throughout the US, Canada and 40 other countries worldwide.  Some of my favorite work of Brain includes and the .  Brian talked about the Someday Isle and taught us many other important lessons.

Mark Victor Hansen   The co-author and creator of the , The One Minute Millionaire and many other best seller books, Mark is absolutely a big thinker and passionate about what he does.  He has appeared on Oprah, CNN and The Today Show and was also featured on TIME, USA Today, Entrepreneur and many other media outlets.  Mark encouraged us to change our life by changing our own story.  He also taught us “Eight Lessons on How to Think Big”. 

Barbara DeAngelis – Barbara was one passionate speaker.  Her energy and excitement was overwhelmingly sincere and open.  She is a best selling author, popular TV personality and expert in the field of relationships.  Her talk focused on love, happiness and the meaning of life.  She wanted us to wake up and believe that nothing is going to stop us from our greatness.  We are not missing anything and none of our issues would disqualify us from serving and fulfilling our purpose.

Art Linkletter  “It is not about how old are you; it is how you are old?”  Art Linkletter is the living proof of his quote and a true delight at the Seminar of the Century. The host of two longest-running shows in the US broadcast history: House Party for 25 years and People Are Funny for 19 years, at the age of 95, Art is engaging, high energy and full of a great and positive outlook on life.  He was a great inspiration for all of us regardless of our age.  Art has written 23 books, is the winner of two Emmy Awards, one Grammy Award, and been awarded 10 honorary doctorate degrees.  More lessons learned from Art, click here.

Jack Canfield – Best selling author of the with Mark Victor Hansen, Jack was also featured in movie “The Secret”.  He started out by telling us the three success secrets from J. Paul Getty: 1. Get up early 2. Work hard 3. Find oil.  Then he moved on to his own success principles.  Jack was funny, sincere and a pleasure to listen to. 

Bob Proctor With over 40 years of experience and mentored by Earl Nightingale and Lloyd Conant, Bob’s talk focused on changing our paradigm (multitude of habits & cultures).  We were taught to use our conscious intellect (thinking mind) instead of our emotional mind.  We need to choose our thought and ask ourselves how we want to live.  It is not about managing our time as time cannot be “managed”, we can only manage our activities.  More lesson learned from Bob, click here.

Les Brown  High-energy, great speaker and cancer survivor, Les was abandoned by his birth parents when he was six weeks old.  Les wanted us to stop paralyzing ourselves.  We need to be brave and get started to be great.  Either we control our own destiny or someone else would.  We need to fail our way to success and be hungry.  We can’t live the big dream with our small life.

John Gray   What a joy to listen to!  John is the best selling author of .  He was extremely funny, insightful about relationship between men and women and surprisingly knowledgeable about health and wellness.  I was shocked by how much he knows about women and how we think.  He even knows the exact words that I use when I am frustrated and angry.  We could not stop laughing during his talk.  As the final speaker on the third day, John was captivating and a great pleasant surprise.  

Harv Eker  Harv left us this final lesson:  To be happy, always ask yourself this “If you do this, how do you feel about you?”  Go for what is true to you.  Do something that makes you feel good about yourself.  This question really rings true for me and I have been using it for the past few days.   Overall I had a great time at the Seminar of the Century. The three days not only left me a great tan and also a great mind.    J  I will expand more on what I learnt in the next few articles.  Stay tuned! Related Articles
