Todays guest is a man whose path to greatness started slowly.
As a child he didn't really set the world alight whilst attending McKinley High School, a trade school in Buffalo.
He failed many of his classes, as well as not managing to make the grade at football, basketball or track & field teams either.
It was as if no matter what he tried to succeed at he just couldn't get it going.
But like so many people in life, who struggle to find their path, it wasn't until he transferred to a different location, in this case Bennett High School that he found that he was trying to achieve in areas that weren't naturally him.
It was there where he found his passion for public speaking, and used his silver tongue to wow his peer group, becoming Senior Class President.
And now he started to get going. He had found something that he could do better than most.
But its ok, to have a silver tongue, but how can you take this talent and use it for maximum effect?
Well, he realised that he would use it to help inspire individuals and organisations find their brilliance.
He would help the world tap into the talents that they were given at birth, and start shining brighter than they have ever done before.
And he has done that very thing better than most.
He is quoted as one of the best keynote speakers ever heard or used, putting him in the same category as Bill Gates, General Colin Powell and Tony Robbins.
And as an author of seven books, helping the world discover their thing, he is a man on a mission.
But there is so much more to him than just having a brain and tongue that inspires those that he comes into contact with.
Which is what we will fnd out today.
So what was it about the first school that just didn't fit with him?
And why does he feel that people are unaware of just how brilliant that they can be not just in America but really everywhere across the globe?
Well lets find out, as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only, Mr Simon T Bailey
