...not what you are called

Kathy addresses the value of your name, and who you are; not what you’re called. Often when asked, “Who are you?”, most people simply state their name. This is not who they are, but what they are called. Kathy’s experiences, and delivery of her story, empower her audience to look past their name, and what they are called; to look at who they are, as a person. This builds self-awareness, individuality, and the ability to express oneself. You will embrace life with a whole new positive attitude, courage and appreciation for life. Additionally, better self-awareness, and self-esteem lead to a higher respect for others, and who they are, as people.  

Kathy has had the opporunity to speak to thousands of people, from all across the country. She found that when asked who they are, people most commonly answer with their name. Although this may seem to be an appropriate response, your name is what you are called; it is not actually an answer to the question... Who are you?

Kathy addresses getting to know yourself, and who you are. Who you are is what you project to others, your personality traits, your likes and dislikes, how you feel about yourself, and those things which make you uniquely you.

Getting to know yourself will allow you to live your life, a life that is unique to you and makes you happy. Find out what is behind your name and who you really are.

“"I cannot tell you how excited we are - it is insane. You are without a doubt one of the best I have ever seen, and I am 57 years old, and have taught for 31 years and gone to tons of leadership conferences, events, etc. You stand out like a beacon of light. How can I thank you enough? Your speech today was absolutely the highlight of the conference. You could see by the multiple standing ovations that we were all, students and adults, moved by your words that touched all of us. Your message was powerful and wonderful. All students should hear your message of love of others and seeing their beautiful souls. And loving oneself, because without that, there is no loving others. Your wisdom is astounding - what a gift you have for the secret of living a beautiful life. You fulfilled every dream of mine. You were the number-one hit of the conference, beyond a shadow of a doubt. Every parent I have talked to, every student I have chatted with - the first thing they loved about CSLC was YOU. You touched the lives of 850 students and 250 teachers. You have a gift of connecting in such a personal way, so that each person feels the message was for them. The messages you give are so beautiful, it makes me wish I could just have you reach every student in every province and state. Your message of love and understanding is universal and the way you share your stories is real, personal and beautiful. There was not a dry eye in the house, and at the same time, I saw laughter on the faces of everyone. That is what struck me when I saw you in Reno at CADA (the California Activity Directors Association). I knew you were a special and magical person who has a soul that is what all of us need to strive to achieve. I really don't know how to thank you enough. CSLC 2015 will always be associated first and foremost with Kathy Buckley, and that will make me proud and happy for years to come. Thank you for your generosity as well Kathy. Heavens, you really live the conference theme: When giving is receiving. What you put out into the universe truly makes the world a better place. If we could only clone someone as special, smart, empathetic, giving, energetic, witty, loving, entertaining and beautiful as you - the world would be an even more amazing place. You have a special vision and instinct that you learned all by yourself. You really are a genius, and a kind, sweet genius at that! Sending you the world's biggest hug. I will never find the words to thank you enough for the gift you gave to the conference and to me. You are the best."”
