Everyone can name at least one thing they want to accomplish before they die. Some even have a list. But how many of these aspirations do they actually achieve?
Seb Terry had a list:
Running with bulls: done
Marry a stranger in Las Vegas: done
Bet $1000 on black (roulette): done
Although Seb is world-famous for his list of 100 things he wants to do before he dies, his mission in life isn’t about a bucket list. It’s about other things more far reaching permission, choice, growth and connection.
After the death of a close friend, the ever-curious Seb experienced a moment when he asked himself a simple question; 'Am I happy?'
The answer was 'No'.
So, he decided to pen down a list of 100 things that he’d always wanted to achieve.
Armed with nothing but 100 dreams, a few dollars and an adventurous heart, Seb embarked on his journey. His life has become an incredible story of achievement and personal development which inspires people and organisations around the world to not just set meaningful goals, but pull the trigger and achieve them – and to help others do the same.
From delivering a baby in Canada and playing for the Mauritian national rugby team at the African Championships which they won, his journey is like no other.
He’s turned his story into a bestselling book and a Discovery Channel documentary.
Seb’s story doesn’t stop there, however. In his pursuit of 100 Things, another movement inadvertently started. The project, now called Beyond 100, focuses on awakening philanthropy in people, then giving them opportunities to help people in need.
This peer-to-peer style of kindness has seen people all over the world perform random acts of altruism which have helped people and, in some cases, saved lives.
Seb’s presentations are unlike any other guest speaker or keynote speaker you’ll find. He tells his unique story, incorporating the major themes which have transformed his life and the lives of those who’ve participated in 100 Things and Beyond 100: the principles of goal setting, altering your mindset, benefiting from change, the art of achievement, opportunity creation and helping others.
The 100 Things keynote will re-engage, connect and inspire your organisation to move forward as one team, with a few tears, laughs and moments of motivation along the way.
