Terry’s one-hour presentation was inspiring and uplifting, resulting in a standing ovation by all in attendance! Our group was extremely pleased that Terry was able to stay and autograph his book.

I recommend Terry for anyone looking for a motivating speaker that walks the walk and talks the talk.

There are those speakers who talk

about overcoming obstacles,

and those who have actually done it.


One is vastly more effective than the other.

Before he became a reality television star, Terry L. Fossum was born in the poorest city in the United States, surrounded by gangs and drugs.  When he has 14 years old, he was staring down the barrel of an assault rifle in his own back alley.  In high school, his father was killed.  Before he died, a neighbor came up and informed him “none of your kids will ever grow up to be anything.”

Terry overcame great odds to be the Executive Officer for an entire Group of nuclear B-52 aircraft.  Following that, he developed sales teams around the world and became a multimillion-dollar earner.  With a passion for helping others, he further applies his leadership skill to philanthropic causes around the globe.  An avid adventurer, he once again overcame great odds as the oldest competitor on the ultimate survival competition ‘Kicking & Screaming’ on Fox network, leading a complete novice, an online video gamer, through the perils of the Fijian jungle against fierce competitors, winning the entire show.

The author of four highly-lauded self-improvement books, Terry’s energetic, humorous and personable speaking style leaves audiences laughing, crying, and, most importantly, performing at a level they may never have thought possible.





As the Space Shuttle is on the launch pad, all three main engines are firing at full power, and yet it sits there, unmoving.  No matter how much energy it may have, and how much potential, it goes nowhere.


Because eight relatively tiny bolts are holding it back.

Then, at T minus 0, explosive charges go off, blowing the bolts and allowing the space shuttle to achieve Lift Off; to soar to great heights, and achieve what it was meant to achieve.

Each of us has eight bolts that hold us back as well, and until we identify and overcome them, we can never perform at our peak potential.

In this energy-charged keynote, Terry skillfully and humorously addresses the first three bolts, helping audiences overcome their fears, stop making excuses, and embrace failure as a welcomed component of Success.

Throughout the experience, Terry weaves in his family story of overcoming great odds to becoming a military leader, a self-made millionaire and winning Fox’s ultimate survival challenge, Kicking & Screaming on prime-time television, and his brother becoming a U.S. Astronaut.  Includes footage from Terry’s show, and a personal message from the International Space Station.

Audience Takeaways

❑  Be inspired by an amazing story of overcoming tremendous obstacles, and achieving great accomplishments

❑  Identify the excuses they allowed to get in the way of achieving their goals in the past, and no longer give them the power to do so

❑  Learn to look past the fears that held them back, and focus fully on their goals and dreams

❑  Embrace failure, understanding that it doesn’t knock you off the path to success, it IS the path to success; and if you’re not failing, you’re not on any path at all!

❑  Leave knowing that regardless of their circumstances, they can rise above and achieve greatness

❑  Perform at a level higher than they ever have before
