Nick Lowery played 18 years in the NFL; He lived these values. The Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Famer and 7-time All Pro is the Chiefs all-time leading scorer. But you can’t pigeon hole Nick Lowery. Some speakers transcend stereotypes, and in so doing, help us break through our own limiting beliefs. Nick helped launch Americorps for President Clinton, and his humanitarian work with youth earned him the NFL Players’ most honored award, the Justice Byron Whizzer White Award. The placekicking position is the most pressured single second in sports. The ball is snapped 8 yards, caught, spun, placed down and kicked in barely a second. The Ball is not spinning before it is kicked for barely a tenth of a second. Then kicked over 11 very large and angry men paid millions to block (and maybe kill!) the kicker. All this on a stage watched by millions of viewers. Nick shares the lessons of bringing your best to your own white-hot moments of pressure, your own moments of truth, to take you to a new level and brand of success!
His message is about thinking outside the box by tapping into your prime gifts, values and focus to achieve a new level of purpose and performance. Nick can talk about the lessons of sports, but as a legislative aide for 4 US Senators and 3 Presidents, he can bring fresh oxygen to our attempts to make sense of a social, political and economic system that has largely failed us and our position as the rightful creative and entrepreneurial heart of the world. Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Famer Nick Lowery’s message is Focus, Passion & Purpose restore the creative genius each of us has within us that manifests our highest self!

My Most Challenging Moment?
After being cut 11 times by 8 NFL teams, writing my mentor, the Chaplain at Dartmouth, wondering if I had made a mistake giving up a permanent job as staf (the only non attorney) on the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation to try one last time to make it in the NFL: David McIlhiney wrote me as I was about to beat out the greatest kicker in the history of the NFL< Jan Stenerud, or be cut for the 12th and final time…, that “Its NOT the Decisions in life that matter, it’s the COMMITMENT you bring to them that determines your legacy.”
That totally crystallized my life as letting go all the past failures fears and mistakes, and bringing about bringing ALL your focus and presence to this moment – whether the classic presence to be the most accurate kicker in NFL history, which I became, or presence with anyone, whether homeless or famous – all are equally worthy of our presence, focus, compassion, wisdom, empathy and love!
Never, Never Never, Never, Never Give UP!!
