Albert Mensah

Inspirational Speaker Showing Audiences How to Achieve Dreams

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.
