First Aid with Kelly Kinkaid: Tony Gaskins Gives Tips on How To Be GREAT

Motivational speaker and entrepreneur, Tony Gaskins joined us for a special edition of First Aid with Kelly Kinkdaid on Sway in the Morning — as students from a local high school joined us in-studio.

He spoke to us about his recent album, Greatness, an audio book about being… GREAT. And explained why it’s better to be “eagles,” not “turkeys.”

“Eagles soar at the greatest heights. They soar by themselves. Turkeys flock together, but end up on a dinner table.”

Tony elaborates on the importance of not fitting in and identifying your gifts. The power of words, and even how to deal with stress and depression.

Watch below and take notes.
