Shawn Anderson Set to Motivate 20,000 on Philippines Speaking Tour

"Limited Thinking Is Not My Thing"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 26, 2015) - Motivational author and speaker Shawn Anderson is taking his empowering "go the extra mile" message to the Philippines. The author of SOAR to the Top!, Amicus 101, and Extra Mile America: Stories of Inspiration, Possibility and Purpose will be traveling to the Philippine Islands from July 18 thru August 2, 2015, speaking to a variety of private and non-profit organizations.

The lifetime entrepreneur and keynoter is not immune to creating big challenges and then seeing them through. Anderson is the Founder of Extra Mile America and the creator of Extra Mile Day... a day recognizing the capacity we each have to create positive change when we go the extra mile. On November 1, 2014, 527 U.S. cities made the unique declaration and recognized those in their local communities who were going the extra mile in volunteerism and service.

The author of six books, Anderson doesn't just talk about themes such as "go the extra mile" and "live the life you love"... he lives them. Last summer, he hiked 550 miles across Spain in 27 days. This year, he will be hiking nearly 400 miles across Portugal. Additionally, Anderson has biked the U.S. solo twice, run a 100-mile race and created adventures around the world. With 75,000 book copies in print, Anderson says he's only just begun.

"Our best days should always be ahead of us. If we can dream about adventures to be lived and opportunities to be created, then why not make them happen?" Anderson asks. "My juice in life is to help other people believe that they can truly live the best version of themselves. No matter what has happened to us in life, we always have a choice to walk passionately and purposefully... or just give up."

Anderson's 20,000-attendee goal seems large on the surface. "My initial goal was 10,000 people until someone from the Philippines told me that no motivational speaker could attract that number of attendees. Immediately my mind said, 'Then let's reach 20,000,'" Anderson shares. "Most limitations exist because we allow them to. Limited thinking is not my thing, and I'm going to do my best to share with 20,000 Filipinos that it shouldn't be their thing either."
