How I Became A Two Time World Record Holder: Getting Into The Guinness Book Of World Records

I never thought in a million years that I will be to be in the records book. It is funny how things work out. I was able to make the record books twice in one year. I will describe my experiences in both times and share things that I learned in the process.

Maybe there is something in your life that you thought was impossible to do or that others have told you that it was not possible. I hope that this blog post will help encourage you to try something that is new, exciting, and possibly take you out of your comfort zone. For it is when you get into the state of discomfort when the real growth start to begin.

How I Became A Two Time World Record Holder: Nashville, TN, The First Time

How I Became A Two Time World Record HolderTwo guys came up with the idea to attempt the World Record for longest comedy show. These guys are Chad Riden and D.J. Buckley. It started with an appeal for support through Indiegogo. I was one of the supporters that enabled me to have a spot on the show. This is where the first world record starts.

Beginning noon April 12th, Nashville StandUp attempted to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” at The East Room in Nashville, TN.

 

This non-stop stand-up comedy marathon was an effort to put Nashville into the record books of comedy history. A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS’ Adjudicator was on site to certify it as an official new world record on 4/15/2015 at 8:04 pm. They not only broke the previous 3.3 day / 80 hour record, they more than doubled the time of the record. The non-stop schedule featured showcases, feature-length and headliner-length sets and surprise drop-ins from comedians of various levels of fame and fortune.

How I Became A Two Time World Record Holder – The Lessons Learned

How I Became A Two Time World Record Holder

 

It was a great opportunity that I learned a great deal amount about comedy.

First was that I had enough comedy material to do an hour which mean I can do 30 min sets easily.

Second was the concept of how a team works in an effort and the different commitment levels.There were people who would stay in the wee hours of the night/day to make sure we had enough people in the audience and/or people to perform so that the show can go on.

Third was that there is a bond that grows in which you can overcome things that exponentially higher than you could alone. As a group we were able to beat the World Record by double the amount it was previously.

How I Became A Two Time World Record HolderHow I Became A Two Time World Record Holder: Huntsville, AL, The Second Time

Once I thought it was great to have one World Record under my belt. I was presented with an opportunity to get another one. I was hesitant at first but decided to do it. It would require me to do the exercise I hated the most, Burpees. I was able to overcome this foe before for the Huntsville Havoc challenge last year. I knew that if I would have to conqueror it again I would have to train.

The good thing is that I had two months to prepare. After two months of training and doing Burpees, the big day occurred.

I was with a team where we had to do them for two minutes. For the more people who do it the better since it was the most people doing Burpees at the same time.

How I Became A Two Time World Record Holder: Final Thoughts

It has been an awesome year so far especially with getting two world records. So I hope this blog post inspires you to achieve or take on something you never thought was possible. Now go out and do it.

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You

Key Ways We Hinder The Law Of Attraction

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You: Don’t Put People To Sleep

Has a boring speaker ever put you to sleep?

Your head begins to nod as you fight off the urge to slip mercifully into the Land of the Z’s or has your mind ever wandered during someone’s dull presentation?

Although you appear to listen intently, what you are really thinking about are the million tasks waiting for you at home.

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You: It Happens More Often Than You Think

Sure, this has happened to all of us, more than we would like to admit. However, don’t let it happen to you when you are the speaker.

The key to keeping your audience from taking a mental exit is to involve them in your talk.

Yes! Studies show that the more you involve your audience, the more they retain.

Why?

Because they are listening!

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You: 5 Ways To Get Your Audience Into The Speech

You can involve your audience in several ways, and I have listed 5 of my favorites below.

Select those that will work well with your presentation and that feel genuine to you.

If it feels uncomfortable, it will look uncomfortable—so don’t use it.

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You Tip #1: Ask Questions
Questions will cause your audience members to try to think of an answer.

They can’t help it – it is simply how our brains are wired. If the energy in the room starts to drop, ask a question and select a member of your audience to respond.

Then, thank him or her for participating and move on to the next person.

Don’t worry about loosing control of your audience. Sales guru Brian Tracy emphasizes, “He (she) who asks questions is in control.”

I personally prefer questions like “How many of you . . .,” and then I ask for a show of hands.

These closed-ended questions get your audience involved both mentally and physically.

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You  Tip #2: Finish Your Sentence
For example, if you said to your audience, “Lions and tigers and bears . . .” and did not finish the sentence, what do you think they would say?

As long as they are familiar with the movie The Wizard of Oz, they would respond with “Oh my!” This is a fun way to get your audience to participate.

If they know the answer, they will blurt it out. If they don’t, you answer it.

Choose something that should be so obvious they will absolutely get it.

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You  Tip #3: High-Five
This is one of my personal favorites, and if you have attended one of my talks you have experienced it firsthand. If you ever feel like the energy in the room is heavy, you can change it by using this technique.

Simply ask a question (remember the power of asking questions).

Ask, “Is this good stuff?”

When your audience responds with “Yes,” say “Then, turn to the people on either side of you and give them a high-five and say ‘This is good stuff!’”

Most people get a kick out of it. However, if you have an individual in your audience who does not want to participate, don’t worry about it.

Some people simply just don’t want to have fun.

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You  Tip #4:  Do Exercises
I learned this trick from the famous millionaire T. Harv Ecker when I took his “Train the Trainer” course. He says, “Get your audience to do the work.”

To accomplish this, ask them to break into groups of two or three (with people that they don’t know) and give them an exercise that is congruent with your presentation.

Afterward, ask them to share openly with the rest of the group and thank them for doing so.

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You  Tip #5: Give Them Candy
Reward your audience for participating, and they will participate even more.

Simply ask a question and when someone answers it, gently throw a small piece of candy to that person. I find that chocolate works best.

You will find that it becomes a game and people will compete for the chocolate.

I don’t use this throughout my entire speech, only for a few minutes in the middle of my talk.

 

Key Ways To Keep The Audience With You: Final Thought

There are many other ways and techniques to get your audience involved.

What is important as a speaker is for you to come up with as many different ways as you can think of that are appropriate for your audience and for you as a speaker.

Believe me, your audience will thank you.

 

 

Take Care and God Bless,

Broken Record Comedy Show-Entering History

How I Became A Two Time World Record Holder

Broken Record Comedy Show-Entering History: The Story Began

Two guys came up with the idea to attempt the World Record for longest comedy show. These guys are Chad Riden and D.J. Buckley. It started with an appeal for support through Indiegogo. I was one of the supporters that enabled me to have a spot on the show.

Broken Record Comedy Show-Entering History: Let The Show Go On

Beginning noon April 12th, Nashville StandUp attempted to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” at The East Room in Nashville, TN.

This non-stop stand-up comedy marathon was an effort to put Nashville into the record books of comedy history.

The non-stop schedule featured showcases, feature-length and headliner-length sets and surprise drop-ins from comedians of various levels of fame and fortune.

Being Apart Of History With Nashville Standup: My Experience

Speaking from my experience, It was an awesome experience, the crowd was great and the comedians were a joy to work with. This experienced not only made history but with this experience I believe everyone that participated are much better off as comedians.

This effort tested our abilities and helped us to push passed limits and barriers that we thought was impossible. I would like to thank the people who organized the event, Chad Riden, D.J. Buckley, Mary Jay Berger, and the Nashville Standup group for the opportunity to be one of the performers on the historic lineup.

Broken Record Comedy ShowBroken Record Comedy Show-Entering History: The Atmosphere

It was great to be in an atmosphere where there were people working together to achieve a goal. One person got up and said that they never did or been apart of something of this magnitude before in his life. Going through the experience was like something out of a movie and to see the joy, drive, and cheers of the comedians as they pushed through days of little to no sleep till the task was completed.

We also pushed to go passed the previous record by over two times when the show ended at 4:20 AM. I even got a chance to hold the certificate that was given for the record being broken.

Other comedians on the lineup included diverse comedians from the Nashville Standup Community, The Huntsville Standup Community, The Atlanta Standup Community just to name a few. Also headliners like Hanibal Buress, Killer Beaz, and Eric Andre made a performance on this historic show.

It was truly a once in a lifetime experience and I am glad I was a part of it.

Broken Record Comedy Show-Entering History: Information On Nashville Standup

Nashville StandUp is a 509(a)(2) Public Charity with a mission to cultivate and promote middle Tennessee’s growing standup comedy scene by supporting the Nashville-based comedians that help make the Music City a great place to see live comedy.

The Awesomeness Team Takes Spot On AL.com: Major Local Media Source

Da Spokesman and The Awesomeness League is officially shared amongst the people of the state of Alabama.

Today the project was feature on Al.com with the publishing by Kay Campbell. I will share some excerpts from the article and give a link to where the article can be viewed.

The Awesomeness Team Takes Spot On AL.com: Excerpt Of The Article

Here is the snippet from the article and if you would like to read more, click here

“Stargell has assembled his own team to bring The International Awesomeness League to life with cartooning and programming. He has built several websites to launch his game, comic book, comedy bookings and motivational work. Despite the time it takes, with his wife, Sasha, to raise his two daughters, both younger than 3, he manages to keep plugging away at his dream – not unlike the sturdy little character that charges around the square sets of his video games. ”

‘Games can be used to build critical thinking skills, especially when the player is in control of their character’

“After all, as his video game character learns, you gain more powers as you struggle – especially when you manage to keep humor in the midst of the fights. Or as one of the characters in “Major League,” the edition of the game in which Da Spokesman is in college, puts it if a player clicks on her: “I sometimes feel like I’m in a video game.” ”

Greg’s Interview with Friendly Fireside Chats

Greg’s Interview with Friendly Fireside Chats: The Word Is Getting Out

Greg was engaged in another interview for Da Spokesman And The Awesomeness League.

Greg said, “It was a humbling experience to be giving an opportunity to speak on the project. I really had fun in expressing the message and the purpose of Da Spokesman and The Awesomeness League.”

Greg’s Interview with Friendly Fireside Chats: An Excerpt Of The Interview

 

Below is an excerpt from the interview that Greg had with Friendly Fireside Chats:

Greg's Interview with Friendly Fireside Chats

 

 

 

 

 

 

McKee recently sat down with Greg ‘Da Spokesman’ Stargell, mastermind behind the on-going series Da Spokesman And The Awesomeness League to talk about his game-slash-comic. Read below for some interesting tidbits about the development process and bear witness to the beginnings of Friendly Fireside Interviews.

Friendly Fireside Chats: Hey Greg! Thanks for agreeing to do this interview! This is our first text interview for the site and I’m pretty excited to have you here, talking about your game. I see that it just got an IndieDB page on the first of the year, so…congratulations!

Greg ‘Da Spokesman’ Stargell: Yeah thanks. I was surprised when I got the email about it. It was a great accomplishment. Awesome and thanks it is an honor to be the first one.

FFC: Well, it’s an honor to be on this side of the metaphorical table, too. And I don’t doubt you feel accomplished, that’s no small feat. Before we get going to some more specific questions, let’s hear the pitch. What’s the idea behind your game, Da Spokesman And The Awesomeness League?

Da Spokesman: At first, I developed Da Spokesman to be like a character to combat the other superheroes for bragging rights. Then it changed when I had a conversation about the essence of trust and building a team and I used ‘Final Fantasy 8′ as a tool to help get the point across.

It was at the point I noticed I could help reach my generation and younger generations through video games.

I changed the purpose of Da Spokesman to be a person that people can relate to and gain ideas on how to overcome different obstacles in life. I decided to add other superheroes so that it would be easier to cover different things from different prospective.

So even though they are superheroes with powers they are still ordinary people inside that do extraordinary things.

Greg's Interview with Friendly Fireside Chats

FFC: The point, then, is that while Superman might be super strong, even if he wasn’t, he’d get the job done?

Da Spokesman: You can say that. The battles that Da Spokesman and The Awesomeness League have with the villains are there for entertainment but it is the internal battles they have that show the strength that we all need to get over different struggles.

FFC: I’m seeing that this is all very much based in comic book lore. Big fan of comics?

Da Spokesman: Yes I am, I am more biased towards Marvel because my favorite superheroes were Spider-Man and Iron Man. We had made a comic book issue before the completion of the first game.

FFC: You must have really enjoyed the recent years in cinema, then. What do you mean by that last comment?

Da Spokesman: We had made what we called the zeroth edition of Da Spokesman and The Awesomeness League. It has nothing to do with the storyline of the series but it was mainly like an introduction to the characters that would start the series.

FFC: Oh, that’s neat! I didn’t know about that. So, was the original idea, then, to be a comic book? And then FF8 changed your mind? Or FF8 is what changed the protagonist from ‘show off and best other superheroes’ to what it is today?

Da Spokesman: Final Fantasy 8 changed my vision of the character in the concept phase/story writing. That was before I found someone who could illustrate. While in the middle of the production of the comic, I had found someone who could code as well. So the video game was developed shortly after the comic was completed. So you can say, the experience with FF8 had sparked the change in the protagonist. Thank you Square Enix!

FFC: Was the goal always to have a video game after the comic? What made you choose to do both, as opposed to just one?

Da Spokesman: Yes, I thought it was easier to do the comic and less expensive to do a comic book than a video game. With things like GameMaker and Unity, it does not require you to break the piggy bank or be a rocket scientist to develop a game. Plus, when you have a team it makes it easier to do both.

FFC: It seems that there are a few people on your team, then? At least one more who codes and another artist. Anyone else? Any shout outs to give?

How To Be More Confident In Your Life

Key Ways We Hinder The Law Of Attraction Part 3

How To Be More Confident In Your Life: You Can Do It

Some people just seem to naturally know how to be confident in any given situation. Let’s face it; learning how to be more confident can seem like a daunting task.

However, if you want to have the courage to go after your dreams, you owe it to yourself to learn the secrets to being a more confident person.

 

How To Be More Confident In Your Life: 4 Steps To Becoming More Confident

 

Here are the steps on how to be more confident in your life.

 

How To Be More Confident In Your LifeHow To Be More Confident In Your Life Step #1: Think Yourself Confident

There is a part of your mind that can work wonders in changing your life. It’s your subconscious mind. The remarkable thing about this part of your mind is that it doesn’t know the difference between something that you’ve imagined and something real.

If you spend time vividly imagining a goal, a hope or a dream, the subconscious accepts that that goal or hope or dream is yours. Then, instead of trying to talk you out of it, it literally sets out to make the blueprint a reality.

How To Be More Confident In Your Life Step #2: Write It Down

The subconscious also doesn’t know the difference between something you write that is only a dream or if it is a reality. So write things in the present tense. Get in the habit of seeing things from the end.

In other words, see yourself as someone who knows how to be confident in any situation. If you picture yourself as a public speaker, write down a story about detailing what a great speaker you are.

Picture the audience laughing and smiling- they are really enjoying your presentation.

Describe in as much details as possible how you are feeling as you stand up in front of this group of people. Concentrate on how confident you are that things are going well.

Write a mini-movie, with you as the director, producer and star!

How To Be More Confident In Your Life Step #3: Cut and Paste

Most of us have, at one time or another made a collage. A collage is a collection of pictures, usually things that are meaningful to the person that’s collecting them.

Find and cut out pictures that represent the desired outcome. In this case, you might want to find pictures of people that are engaged in activities that you want to do.

They know how to be confident in this situation and look like they are having a good time.

Don’t just pick photos that you think will do. Be picky. Remember, you are the leader of your own life. Take your time and choose, cut and paste pictures that really speak to you.

If you see a picture that shows someone doing something that you wish you could do, but the picture makes you feel anxious or nervous, don’t use it.

Likewise, you won’t want to choose something that is too unbelievable.

The subconscious may not know the difference between a vividly held dream and reality, but it won’t believe you’ve become an astronaut unless you believe it yourself!

How To Be More Confident In Your LifeHow To Be More Confident In Your Life Step #4: Take Action

Take advantage of any public speaking classes or workshops offered in your area. Remember, learning how to be confident is like learning any other skill – it should be practiced.

Join a group, take a class – taking daily actions towards your ultimate goal will get you there faster.

 

 

How To Be More Confident In Your Life: As I Said Before You Can Do It

You can learn how to be confident in many situations. The most important thing is to enjoy the process. Whatever the goal, the subconscious will help bring about amazing results.
Take Care and God Bless,

Why Having Dance Lessons Are Good For You And To You

How To Overcome The Evil Confidence Killers With Public Speaking

Why Having Dance Lessons Are Good For You And To You: It is Good For The Heart

Keeping our hearts healthy is important.  Cardiovascular exercises, which increase heart rate, keep our hearts in shape.  Regular exercise has also been shown to lower blood pressure, freeing our heart from some of the effort in moving blood through our system.

But many people don’t get much enjoyment from disciplined workouts.  They know they need regular cardiovascular exercise to stay heart-healthy, but what activities are there to steer clear of tedious typical exercise programs?

Why Having Dance Lessons Are Good For You And To YouWhy Having Dance Lessons Are Good For You And To You: Have You Tried Dancing

Many find dancing to be one such activity.  Dancing allows you to get your heart pumping and your limbs moving without having to endure the monotony of exercising on a treadmill or at a gym. Dancing regularly keeping not only keeps ones heart healthy, it also helps maintain balance and coordination. Plus, of course, dance lessons and events let you get you out of the house regularly and make and meet friends.

Local organizations, universities, community and, sometimes, churches hold dancing lessons and events that are open to people of all abilities and skill levels.  If you haven’t danced in awhile, or even if you’ve never tried it before, it’s never too late to learn.

Adding another skill to your list never hurts, and dancing is an ability that comes in handy mighty often.  Dance lessons are typically offered by style (ballroom, folk, Latin, swing, et cetera) and ability level (beginner, intermediate, advanced, competitive).

Why Having Dance Lessons Are Good For You And To You: Types Of Dances To Consider

Ballroom dancing is performed with a partner (don’t worry; there are typically a number of “singles” taking lessons.  You’ll be able to pair off when you go to the lesson).  Everything from the internationally renowned waltz, to the classic American Foxtrot, to the Tango and cha-cha, fall into the category of ballroom dance.

Folk dancing typically refers to square dancing, contra dancing, or one of several Irish, Scottish, or English styles of dance.  Folk dances can sometimes be more social than ballroom dances (since partners typically split up and join with others during the course of the dance).

Latin Dancing is my dance of preference. It is similar to ballroom in that it is usually a partnered dance and there a good amount of singles that take the course as well. I know a good amount of people that met their significant other through the dance ( I am one of them). Some of the Latin Dances are Merengue, Bachata, Salsa, and Cumbia just to name a few. Other popular styles of dance include swing, Latin, traditional and many others.  Feel free to explore. Who knows you might find you significant other on the dance floor.

Why Having Dance Lessons Are Good For You And To YouWhy Having Dance Lessons Are Good For You And To You: Where Can I Go To Get Lessons

Books and videos can also be found online, if you just need a refresher, or would rather get the basics in the comfort of your own home, but only would not take the place of an actual class.

My recommendation is to find a dance type you would like to try and ask around or you can contact me if you need help. If you are in the Huntsville, AL area, you are in luck there are some great instructors especially in the Latin Dancing arena that can help you get started to have fun and lower your cholesterol.

If you’re looking for a great way to be heart-smart, stays fit, and meet new people, try dancing.  Dance lessons allow us to try something new, exercise, and take part in a social activity all at the same time.  Find a style that interests you, pick the appropriate skill level, find a place, and dance!

it was suppose to be for my wife instead of me. Yes, you can tell that I love my wife and plus she is pregnant.

So that was the reason behind me using the baby tub as my bucket as I will explain in the video.

 

My Entry Into The Ice Bucket Challenge And The Making Of It: The Part That Did Not Make It To DVD

 

This is a video that was made before I did the Ice Bucket Challenge. It is kind of good that I because the Ice was kind of

backed up in the ice tray so it was an opportunity to clean out the tray and prepare for the challenge. In the video,

I am breaking up the ice so it would not be just one lump but spread out to make ice water. Check out the video below:

Now this is the video that I have uploaded and submitted for my challenge. My wife was surprised that I was able to

hold on to the tub with the water as long as I did. I had challenge some friends that I knew from college, salsa dancing,

comedy and also my lovely ladies that had made it into the playoffs by clinching the Eastern Conference, the Atlanta Dream.

I would love to see Angel M. throw some water on herself (of course for obvious reasons since I am a guy).

Check out the video below to witness me take on a tub full of ice water.

Take Care and God Bless,

Greg “Da Spokesman” Stargell
