UNLOCK YOUR TRUE POTENTIAL: Cure The 5 Human Ailments™

The history of human experience is full of tales of success and failure and amazing stories of perseverance to victory. What separates the average person from the exceptional? Do we all have the ability to be exceptional?

So you wake up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, retire to bed, wake up and start the process all over again. There may never be ‘the perfect time’… and then what? Too many people never experience the ultimate high, because they’re stuck in low gear waiting for everything and everyone around them to be perfect. The perfect time is a grand illusion. 

The perfect time only happens when your mind catches up to your fear. We talk ourselves in and out of more opportunities because of a condition known as FEAR. Fear is the ultimate dream killer. We are fearful of things that may never happen, but we fear them anyway. Make FEAR your new friend! You make your own breaks, no one else is responsible for your successes, your failures, or for your dreams.

It’s unfortunate that many people will never realize their true potential because they suffer from one or more of the “5 Human Ailments”. If you are not aware of the symptoms you may not even realize that your potential is limited, but if you learn the signs – you can discover the treatments and begin the path to full recovery!

When we get too used to a situation, complacency sets in. We will never excel at anything unless we push the envelope. This is a difficult one for most people because they get into a comfort zone and idle on through life. It’s equivalent to being in neutral. Your engine is running but you’re not moving forward. If complacenitis is the disease, change is the cure!

Some people live their entire life trying to be like someone else. They convince themselves of their limitations. They never reach their potential because they will not allow themselves to envision all that is possible. If you find yourself caught up in this world, then you must take drastic measures or you’ll find yourself blending into the crowd. You are capable of anything and everything when you let your mind go. Allow yourself to move beyond your self-imposed restrictions.

The golden rule in developing relationships is not to sell people out. People are not for sale. I define money as ‘a dirty substance’ that elicits the worst in people. When you know your product or service and you do the right thing, money will take care of itself. Dirty Money Disease is one of what I call the ‘5 Human Ailments’.

How many times have you made a call to someone, or left a voicemail, or sent an email and they never call back or respond in anyway? It doesn’t feel good does it? How many times do you do it to people who are trying to reach you? Your intentions may be honorable, you planned on calling them back, you’re just too busy, whatever your excuse is it’s still procrastination. Have you considered what procrastination or lazy work habits are doing to your productivity? Failing to follow through with a sensible timeline and deadline for your projects is the kiss of death. I see too many people with no sense of urgency. Not-Now-Fever is killing productivity – but there is a cure. There are steps you can take to rid yourself of this troubling disease!

What are the most common obstacles to personal achievement? There are 5 barriers that consistently hold people back from true fulfillment and emotional well being – I’ve studied this for over thirty years in America’s boardrooms. I’ve been able to identify the 5 Human Ailments that are keeping you from your true destiny.

Ask yourself these three questions:

Have you SETTLED into a comfortable existence without even realizing it?
Do you ever wonder why some people succeed, yet others STRUGGLE to get by?
Are you allowing FEAR of failure to stop you from even trying?

  1. Copycatosis

  2. Not Now Fever

  3. Complacenitis

  4. Dirty Money Disease

  5. Judgmentanoma

BRINKSTORMING™: Your Next Great Idea

Creativity should be both unpredictable and disruptive, with moments of absurdity! I can tell you this – it’s all by design. This is the maturation point of a great idea!! Every single being is capable of those Brink Thinking moments. The more you connect those moments together, the more fulfilling your life will be. This keynote takes the old method of brainstorming, and completely changes the way you think via a process we call BrinkStorming™.

We are fast becoming a generation of average – but hold on, not so fast! According to the Global Creativity Index (GCI) – America is second in the latest study – only behind Australia when it comes to the most creative country on earth. The study ranks each country with “the Three Ts”: technology, talent and tolerance. America has high levels of creative competitiveness with higher levels of inequality – the country needs improving in the tolerance category. Yet, what separates America from so many other countries is the ability to define itself through its ideas. Innovation and risk taking are at the forefront of many of the greatest ideas that transformed the last century.

Average seems like an extraordinary victory when most everyone else around you is failing. WE CAN CHANGE THAT MINDSET!

Success in any profession is a great deal more challenging than it was 10 years ago. The chances of failure are indeed more commonplace than they would have been in more prosperous times. This produces more average as more and more people settle. Too many people are content with letting others create the BIG IDEAS. They think that they can’t change the system and so they leave it to others to wrestle with the big problems. Every single one of us is capable of achieving extraordinary feats. Once you have an idea in-mind, go beyond that idea and break through the boundaries of average. It’s okay to question everything, in fact it’s healthy to do so. How many times have you been engaged with leaders where you had hoped the conversation would be invigorating and inspiring? Instead it was average, if not boring – it does NOT have to be this way.


  1. Your boundaries are 100% self-imposed by you, be in charge of your own thoughts
  2. Never settle for an average idea, be exceptional and bold in your thinking
  3. Don’t follow, lead. Find alternative methods to break through the clutter
  4. Question everything, the obvious and the not so obvious. What if?
  5. Uniqueness is the golden rule. If everyone else is doing it, then don’t
  6. Don’t panic when the idea seems absurd. Absurdity is oxygen for high-flyers
  7. Take your idea to next-level thinking, all the way to the BRINK

People ask me – What makes a BRINK-THINKER?®

Brink Thinkers are regular people like you and I who have learned to nurture, persist and expand our thoughts to create unparalleled results. Many of your everyday ideas have the potential for greatness. The secret is to take that thought, that concept, that idea, all the way to the BRINK!

BRINKSTORMING™ is all encompassing.

The brink of societal change.
The brink of courage or bravery.
The brink of helping others live a more purposeful life.
The brink of lessons learned and now valued.
The brink of peace in the world.
The brink of death just before life.
The brink of undying determination under great obstacles.
The brink of victim turned victor.
The brink of possibilities and not despair.
The brink of saving lives. The brink of invention.
The brink of positive attitudes that give hope.
The brink of never stopping until the realization of your goal.

Knowing when to break through the boundaries of average to question the unquestionable is the sign of greatness. It’s those moments when you get to the absurd stage that things truly get interesting. The journey to get to the BRINK can be unpredictable, but knowing you’re at the BRINK – that is genius my friends. When you’re questioning every angle and theory, often you’ll find yourself in an absurd mindset that can be difficult to rationalize. It’s just beyond absurdity where you’ll discover the Brink of Greatness™.

This One Keynote Will Change The Way You Think Forever

  1. What makes an innovative environment?
  2. Learn how to turn FEAR into FUEL
  3. The difference between a calculated risk and cliff-diving
  4. How to embrace your oddness, and why being different is a good thing
  5. Why everyone has the ability to get their big break in life
  6. Eliminating self-imposed boundaries and discover the dangers of the BOX
  7. When is the RISK worth the REWARD?
  8. What makes a good BRINK-STORMING™ session?
  9. Learn the stages to get to the BRINK OF GREATNESS™

BRINKSTORMING™ is an evolution that takes the simplest idea and transforms it into an extraordinary moment. ‘Think Outside The Box’ is an overused, overstated metaphor used by millions of people everyday. I have never understood why people carry a box with them in their lives. If you refuse to carry this box with you – you’ll never have to worry about reminding yourself to think outside of it again. Just having a box control your every thought forces you to limit yourself and restrains all the possibilities that would otherwise be present. Why would you limit yourself when you could achieve so much more?

LIVING IN TWO PARALLEL UNIVERSES, this is malcolm out loud

“The world is in need of a new generation of leaders. Leaders who have the courage to break through the boundaries and question everything around them. Society is yearning for bold and enthusiastic women and men to provide the necessary leadership that will be required for the next leap forward.”

I was living in two parallel universes – at least it seemed that way. One universe had me covering the news cycle on national radio, as a news commentator and host there was no shortage of bad news to go around – I know I reported on it. There is far too much truth to the phrase – ‘If it bleeds, it leads.’ They say bad news sells, not positive news or encouraging stories that improve our lives. I beg to differ.

My other universe centered on all these exciting and inspiring stories of people that were finding themselves on the brink of some life decision that might transform their life, and that would ultimately give hope back to the human race. There are so many underreported stories that need to be highlighted in the news. People that need to be celebrated and cherished. Brink of Greatness™ was born as a platform to showcase the greatness that thrives in so many of us.


I invested 27 years in the marketing world as the CEO, Creative Director of a Worldwide Marketing and Advertising Agency. I was know as the BIG IDEA CATALYST. I’m a visionary, I was able to see the big ideas and the potential that many in the C-Suite could not see. I love bringing out the best in people.

It was back in June 2010 that I made the leap myself from the corporate boardroom to the radio mic and television camera. I knew that this other universe had ‘real people’ stories that needed to be told. I’ve discovered since then – there is more good and positive happening across our nation and around the world than the media would have you believe. 

It all started with both a daily talk radio show playing in a top 20 market and I was one of the pioneers on YouTube in the launch of Malcolm Out Loud TV back in June 2010. Never one to rest on my successes or failures, I hired a pr firm to advance my brand across talk radio as a national commentator on leading stations.

Most people introduce themselves by saying ‘I am so and so’. I use a different style of introduction… ‘This is Malcolm Out Loud’. For me it was to create a moment – a moment that says ‘I’ve arrived or I’m here’. An expression that says ‘I own this moment’. I started using it on my Web TV program from the onset and I incorporated it into my national radio work and the syndicated Out Loud Minute early on. I use it as both my hello and as my sign-off. I believe it’s important for each of us to stake out our uniqueness and let it rip!


Like some of the most successful projects and initiatives in history, America Out Loud came out of need, not greed. The idea started when a few folks asked for advice or guidance in creating their own talk shows. From that spark in April 2016, it started by weaving these talents together, along with my own, and many of the contributors that were selflessly feeding the blog with wisdom and solutions. – into a unique network that would attract tens of millions. The platform is prime now for substantial growth and expansion, as you’ll see in the coming years. We have some very special plans in place!

America Out Loud is the informational news and entertainment portal combining the latest technology with incredible talent in a most unique setting. A place where you can listen to top programming from select personalities, read the latest from bloggers who get it, and watch some of the latest videos from decision makers. Is it possible to be respectful and yet direct and truthful – without screaming at someone or talking over their heads? The answer is YES. America Out Loud is all about the vision of the voices.


An exciting project I’ve been working on, and one that is yet to be truly discovered for what it is… ‘BRINK of Greatness’ is reserved for those who shine in that moment of life – Courage, Empathy, Perseverance, Curiosity, Innovation – People Overcoming Obstacles, Changing Outcomes & Exploring The Unknown!. Stories that focus on human excellence, along with tools and life lessons that will drive your own agenda for greatness.

Back to where I started this from, my origins as a YouTube guy, Over 700+ programs throughout a five year span, and I’m still having a great time. America Out Loud TV informs and inspires people to take action. From business to politics, from spirituality to social happenings, this ground breaking digital news magazine brings a fresh perspective to a world vying for quality programming. You can subscribe to the channel and send me your ideas.


We’ve all been to those conferences or seminars where you get so bored that you literally have to force yourself to stay awake. Even worse – you invest hours of your precious time and you learn nada – you come away feeling empty. I can guarantee you this – you won’t be sleeping through my talks. Let’s just say that public speaking won out over algebra in my world! The size of the group is irrelevant. I talk to millions of people on national radio. Hundreds of people on stage. A dozen people in a boardroom. What is relevant is the impact! There is no greater reward in this lifetime than to impact a life. I do this through the process of these two extraordinary talks:
