Transformational Speaker Dewayne ‘COACH’ Walker is transforming the Mindsets of our Generation
Today we’d like to introduce you to Dewayne ‘COACH’ Walker.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
I have been many things to many people, (counselor, motivator, inspirer, author, artist) etc. But despite the accomplishments, despite the roles, I have also had challenges of my own. I grew up unfocused as a child, with minimal motivation, giving it 20%-80% effort. From being held back in the second grade to being put into remedial classes. As I grew older, I brought my patterns and habits with me into my high school years and eventually into my college years. It’s not that I didn’t want to do good in school. It’s not that I didn’t want to have the focus and discipline that I needed. I wanted all of that. But here’s the thing. “Want without commitment and change is a road that leads to continuous disappointment.” We have to commit to what we want and desire. We have to be who we want to be; we have to mentally form ourselves into that person we see us as being. Simply put we have to change our mindsets. One of the key ingredients is developing your WHY. Once I developed my WHY I had fuel to push me and keep me going. I have spoken across hundreds of platforms, lead a youth movement, encouraged and motivated those in high crime areas. I have written a self-help book entitled INTERNAL WAR: How To Overcome The Battle With Self, which gives strategies and techniques that I used to change my mindset and transform into the person who I am today.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
Discipline and endurance, I had to remove all distractions and focus on where I was going and discipline myself to give my time and energy to people, places and things that would not take away from my goals and visions. I had to do what didn’t feel good to me but was great for me. Take for example, me getting up at 5am. It doesn’t always feel good to me but it is great for me because I get a head start on my day and I’m able to get so much accomplished. Or for example me making a decision to take the tv out of the room. I love to watch movies and episodes, but that was a distraction. The time I put into watching episodes could be time put into working on my goals.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I specialize in Mindset Transformation. As a result of working with my company Master Mindset University, individuals, groups and organizations are able to control their subconscious, create new and effective habits and use strategies and techniques to transform their mindset while transforming into the person they’re striving to become.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Get control of your subconscious which is the score keeper of your past failures and accomplishments, stay in the future now, not the past then. Watch the words that you speak in your life and what you allow other people to speak over your life, because we become what we say and speak things into existence.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Freedom and happiness
