Be Inspired by Former NFL Player Who Provides Techniques for Overcoming Obstacles.

Wes Lyons is a professional motivational speaker who focuses on speaking to businesses and organizations using conversational candor that many audiences can relate to.

Whether it's personal development or professional advancement, Wes Lyons provides a framework to encourage audiences to be positive and productive individuals.

Wesley A. Lyons, Jr. is from North Braddock, Pennsylvania. Wes attended Woodland Hills High School, where he earned academic and athletic honors, and excelled at football during those years.  After graduating in 2006, he received scholarship offers from many colleges, and decided to attend West Virginia University.  There he continued his education and became a valuable member of their football team.  Wes graduated a semester early in 2009 with a business degree, and pursued his interest in football on a professional level.  His passion and hard work paid off — Wes was picked up by the New York Jets for their off-season, and eventually signed to play with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wes is the author of the book, "The Pursuit with Patience."

From beginning to end, "The Pursuit with Patience" is both inspiring and heart-rending as Wes shares the obstacles he faced in his pursuit of the NFL. It is a telling story of how faith in oneself can lead you to insurmountable victories and how staying patient, while aggressively working toward your goals can help you achieve your dreams. Wes' book also gives you an inside perspective on the trials a student athlete endures, the college football recruitment process, and the business of the NFL.

Wes Lyons' motivational keynote speeches are in high demand by many businesses, organizations, associations and conferences seeking to provide audiences with a positive, yet real perspective on life and its challenges. He has built a brand as an inspirational leader and speaker by discussing how he defied the odds by being part of less than 1% of high school football players to play for a Division I-A school, and then continue to be signed by an NFL team.  

In his presentation, Wes emphasizes the importance of the following four techniques:

Live with confidence
Dedicate yourself to your craft
Make good decisions
Know there are no limits

Wes' success is based off of living these key principles.  He has continuously set ambitious goals and achieved his dreams through hard work, preparation and dedication. Wes' experiences show that there are no impossible goals, as long as you have the right attitude and tools to achieve them. When he speaks to organizations, he boosts the morale of everyone in the room. Don't miss out on adding value to your business by hearing this phenomenal speaker!
