Albert Mensah - The Change Maker

Albert Mensah - The Change Maker

Albert Mensah was born in Ghana, Africa, and this is his story: He is the third born of six kids. His father and mother have been married for 47 years and they have always been his role models.

When Albert was 8 years young he saw an American movie and witnessed the fantastic opportunities in America. Getting to America became his dream, his passion and his goal. In 1978 his dream came true when Albert won a full Scholarship to Western Maryland College, and in the twenty-four years since have reached the highest levels of personal and professional success.

When summarizing his life in words, these are the words and concepts he deals with the most in life (and in his presentations): Dreams, Opportunity, Success, Change, Fear, Communication, Passion, Enthusiasm.

The strongest word and the one Albert emphasize most is OPPORTUNITY. As a person who grew up in Africa, in poverty.... Opportunity was easy for him to spot. All he had to do was watch a movie that depicted people wearing shoes, plenty to eat, cars! For Albert, Opportunity was obvious and it was everywhere. Opportunity and dreams were not things he had to struggle with. He saw it and wanted some for himself.

Many times, people who are born into such opportunity-filled-countries such as America can't always see the "Opportunities" that clearly. How can a person who is born "into it" duplicate his experience? What must happen?

How can a person manufacture desire? What kind of catalyst must be introduced to trigger desire? Can people create their own catalyst that will trigger desire? If a person does NOT have the desire and necessary passion- how can they get it? How can a person factually determine if they have the desire they need? What are the characteristics of this level of success?

Albert teaches principles and skills that achieve the following:
1. Show people specifically how to develop and personalize a dream.
2. Show people how to identify / understand / own / personalize Opportunities that will support their dreams.
3. Show people how to turn Opportunities into accomplishments that produce RESULTS.

When The Drumbeat Changes Dance A Different Dance

In today’s world career success belongs to the committed, To those who invest themselves passionately in their jobs, And who recommit quickly when change reshapes their work. Considering the scope and speed of change these days, Albert Mensah says there will be many priceless opportunities for those of us who play by the new rules, position ourselves right, and take personal responsibility for our future.

Shake Off Your Fear Snakes

How to Create Assets from Adversity to Free the Opportunities of a Lifetime-Every Day! Most of us pass up dozens of opportunities a day- countless great ideas and chances to shine and excel. Why? Because we’re afraid of what others may think and concerned that our concepts won’t “fly”, because of obstacles in our paths like uncertainty and self-doubt that blinds us to the abundant possibilities and greater success in our personal and professional lives. Yet success in this highly innovative, change-intensive world-requires that we embrace our ideas, our opportunities, being bold, “wearing different hats” and our creativity so we are ready to take advantage of the abundant opportunities available to us.

Bullying is an act of cowardice that stems from feelings of inadequacy. Because bullies feel inferior, they pick on others in order to feel better about themselves.
