Author of: How To Find Success By Losing Your Mind

Background Information

Hello! My name is Marvin Crawford, and I would first of all like to thank you for taking the time to read my biography, get to know a little more about me, and consider me as YOUR speaker! The field of inspirational speaking is new, and yet not so new to me; having grown up with a mother who unknowingly practiced inspirational speaking (as well as inspirational living) every day! I like to think of my inspirational speaking as a gift from her, a legacy passed on lovingly from mother to son. I first started speaking in 1995. I was divorced, disillusioned and broke when a friend invited me to a seminar held by the legendary motivational speaker Les Brown. Before that day, I spent almost every day feeling sorry for myself, crying on the floor, and participating in a never-ending pity party. I heard Les Brown tell the story of how he, years ago, while waiting on a fellow student, was asked to solve a problem on the board, to which he responded, "I-I can't sir!" The teacher answered, "Of course you can, I will show you what to do." The young Mr. Brown replied, "No, I can't sir...I'm EMR (Educably Mentally Retarded)." The teacher came from behind his desk and said these words: "Don't EVER say those words again...Someone's opinion of you does NOT have to become your reality!" Those words empowered me in ways I find difficult to describe to this day! At the end of the seminar, we were all given the opportunity to ask questions. I could not help but notice that all of the questions were just about the same..."Mr. Brown, I just lost my you think I can make it?" I could not help but wonder--Did ANYBODY GET IT? Soon came my turn, and to be honest, I wondered what I was going to say--I had NO IDEA! All I know is that I just opened up my mouth, and this is what came out: "Mr. Brown, do you recognize me?" I had no idea what I was saying! I had never met him before! His response was, "I don't have my glasses on." Just as quickly came my reply, "Well, please put them on and allow me to introduce myself. I am the NEXT ONE!" Suddenly, I heard a loud noise. I just knew it was Security rushing to remove me, but instead, it was the applause of 1000 people! By the end of the evening, people were coming up to me, recognizing me as the "next one." Asking me for my autograph, and things like that. "Next One WHAT?" I thought to myself. That night, I came to know my purpose in life, which is something I had been doing my whole life anyway, and that is to inspire other people to answer life's true call, which is PURPOSE...the reason we all were put here in the first place! Little did I know that I would share the stage with Mr. Brown two years later! My primary purpose as an inspirational speaker is to help people discover the truth within themselves, and to stop them from believing just the circumstances that approach them. Choosing your life's purpose is not easy. But understanding your life's real purpose will give you the power to have anything you want--anything at all! Once you can figure out exactly what that is, getting there will be that much easier. I ask only for the opportunity to help you answer that question, to lead you step by step with my words towards making each and every one of your dreams come true. I want to help you find the courage and motivation to act on your true purpose, and to earn the great rewards that come from pursuing the kind of work you want to do. I encourage you to take the challenge today--allow me to speak to your team leaders, your employees, your civic group, your associates, your community, your church group, or your students for just a brief amount of time, and you will be amazed at the power in the room as you see the transformation of people who will at last begin to understand that they can control their true happiness and personal success. I eagerly await a response from you! Attached are letters of reference from individuals who are familiar with my speaking, please read and consider their letters as well. You may contact me at ( 210-485-4245 or by e-mail at Sincerely, Marvin Crawford
