Chris D’Amico - Life Happens: How to Stay Motivated
Life Happens: How to Stay Motivated
My speech is not about the gear, the tech, the marketing or the parties. It is about the other part of the game. The mental part. Strategies and perspective to keep yourself motivated and moving forward when you are stuck and can’t get out of your own way or when life gets IN your way.
Mental Strategies: Life is choices.. either you choose to let your situation control you or you control the situation. Make a list of what you can and can't control.. focus on what you can.. that is your power. When you wake up in the morning during times of crisis and distress it's hard to get out of bed.. Keep your phone/ alarm out of reach so that it forces you to get up to shut it. Once youre out of bed.. make your bed... not only is it something you can control, it'll keep you from going back in it. (basically these types of tips)
Silver Linings : What we did with Kindness For Christopher in the wake of his death to change the world... nuff said!!
When it comes to your mind... If I personally traced back over all the years of what's held me up most, terrified me most, kept me held back from my complete potential, killed more of my dreams and led me to make some bad decisions ...it would be the thing between my two ears... that voice that talks to you... that inner dialog.. that's not God talking to you.. If your thoughts could turn into an actual human being would you be friends with him/her ?? Probably not... so give that voice a name.. personify it.. and tell them to STFU!!!
Your 'Why?" ...for me it was my wife and daughter. Whats yours? Self exploration.. a life audit. Teaching that if you don't prioritize newness and adventure all your left with is a life full of appointments and responsibilities.
remembering that being a DJ isn't just what you do.. it's what you are.. and you're not only a DJ you're an Entrepreneur.. what's the definition of an entrepreneur? "Someone who jumps off a cliff and builds a plane on the way down!! "
About Chris D’Amico
My name is Chris D’Amico. I own a company in North NJ called D’Amico Entertainment. I have been speaking for over 5 years about several topics including, how to handle life’s major challenges that may arise and keep yourself moving forward and the ripple effect. How your words and actions effect and change the world you live in. It is based on my real world experience of losing my son Christopher in 2015 and how I navigated through the grief and mental PTSD to still achieve my goals. Also, how we turned his tragedy in a triumph through a movement called Kindness For Christopher. I have spoken for Novartis, The Sharing Network, DJX (21 & 22), The Marquee Show (2022 and will again in 2023), Multiple schools, was recently offered an opportunity to speak for Google.
