Call in to speak with the host
Xenia, OH – Fear is a great motivator, but laughter is the best medicine.
Cea Cohen Elliott is a professional motivational speaker, wellness and fitness coach, and seminar and workshop leader. Covering a wide variety of topics ranging from customer service and team building to stress management and even how to make a difference in the world, Elliott always weaves humor into her positive messages.
“My goal is to get people to laugh and cry at the same time,” says Elliott. “Life is like a high school dance. Are you dancing through life or are you standing against the walls? If I can get you to just take five minutes to think about what you’re doing to take care of yourself, then I’m really happy.”
With a master’s degree in counseling, Elliott has spent her entire life searching for an understanding of what motivates people. According to Elliott, no matter what challenges we face life gets easier when we take ourselves less seriously.
“Motivational speaking provides a venue for me to make sense of what we’re all trying to accomplish, which is, ‘How do we stay healthy? How do we live a better life?” says Elliott. “If I can make people laugh, people will listen.”
Elliott’s improvisational, interactive approach to public speaking has proven remarkably effective when discussing topics like wellness, a subject audiences can be somewhat resistant to.
“Wellness is about balance: the emotional, the spiritual, the physical and the mental component of one’s life,” says Elliott.
Elliott believes having a positive attitude is a choice: we can be healthy or we can be a victim and stay sick.
“There was a time in my life when I couldn’t laugh. I had to work my way up to one day at a time,” says Elliott. “Small changes can yield big results.”
It's good to talk.
