Your Mountain Top is Calling You

There is a team building retreat center in the Alps where businesses send employees to bond by climbing together. Interestingly, the same routine happens every day.  Excited new walkers arrive, pull on their boots, gloves, and backpacks, and ascend up the mountain.  Around lunchtime they come to what is known as the ‘Half Way House’. Throwing their backpacks on the floor, they all pile into the lounge to enjoy the piano, beer, and log fire. When lunch is over, and it comes time to put on their boots again, the majority of walkers decide they’ve had enough and happily choose to keep partying, while the smaller group head into the snow and back up the mountain.

At around 4 PM the walkers reach the peak and ring the summit bell. The group who chose to stay behind swarm out onto the Half Way House balcony and gaze up at their friends waving down at them from the summit. The party atmosphere instantly changes to one of silence and regret, with everyone having the same overriding thought, ‘That could have been me!

Maybe it’s a half-way point in your life. The good news is that most goals are scored in the second-half of the game. It’s time to get motivated again. It’s time to dream, and to set new goals. You’ve been stuck at Half Way House too long. Your mountain top is calling you!


That was a terrific blog… even if he did say so himself!”  Kevin the puppet

Interview with Marc Griffiths

What do you gain personally from being a public speaker?
Marc: That it’s a privilege! When I get to the end of my life the greatest thing anyone could say about me is that, ‘Marc changed my life!’ Stepping out in front of new audiences is also personally challenging and really exciting!
Kevin: I like the TV in the hotel room!

How do you tackle life’s obstacles?
Marc: I see obstacles as giants. The reward is always on the other side of your giant. Giants keep others away from the reward. When seen this way, obstacles move from being problems to being wonderful opportunities!
Kevin: I sleep and hope they go away!

Which is harder: motivating yourself or motivating others?
Marc: Motivating myself. Motivate means ‘to move’. No-one wants to be told what to do. But if  they see me moving myself then I hope that that will be inspirational to them, so they can think, ‘If he can do it then so can I!’
Kevin: I motivate Marc!

What got you started on ventriloquism?
Kevin: Aliens came and beamed him up when he was bored at school. They taught him the ancient art of ventriloquism and then dropped him back to earth several years later. He was a bit freaked out by it all and thought he better not let them down after they’d been to all that effort, so he started talking to himself!
Marc: That’s maybe slightly exaggerated!

Who or what inspires you most?
Kevin: Myself. I am awesome!
Marc: My dad. He’s the most humble person I’ve ever met. He once said, ‘People can never get enough encouragement!’ So true. I try and live by that and encourage people whenever I can, whether that’s in a talk or when talking to the checkout lady!

Do you have a favorite experience from your speaking career?
Marc: Yes! The really big moments, like when I stepped on Britain’s Got Talent in front of Simon Cowell. It doesn’t matter how it goes, each big moment is enlarging. I also like hearing what effect I had. After one talk a student came up to me and said, ‘I don’t remember you speaking, but I remember your orange haired puppet called Kevin, who made me laugh when I was 10 and it gave me hope when my parents were divorcing!’
Kevin: I am awesome!
