Harvey Alston stands apart from most conventional wisdom and is opposed to much of it having Powerful Communication Skills and providing self Self-Esteem
In a land clad in T-shirts, he affects a black tuxedo. In a population which labors to be cool he stomps and struts and shouts good news.
He’s Harvey Alston and you really have to hear him because it’s impossible to describe what he does.
In an age much given to gloom and bitter resignation, he preaches a gospel of joy and good fortune. In a time which values very little he believes in solitary achievement, shared accomplishment and the dignity of human beings.
At a traditional graduation ceremony or a routine assembly, he enters running, taking stage and the spotlight with the energy of a man who has something very important to get off his mind.
He trades in buzzwords and acronyms, but dismisses stereotypes and sells no ideology. He is in a word unique.
He finds himself lubricating a firm’s personnel machinery, training, and stimulating hamburger merchants.
Now he moves business executives and urges young people to forever avoid drugs.
But he is not a professional feel-good or a self-help mullah.
He’s a man who understands human nature and the limitations of the age in which he lives.
Alston has established reputation enough and momentum enough, to enable him to appear long before he is due.
Then he talks to anyone who will listen, and listens to anyone who will talk.
He comes to know his audience, who they are, what they want.
He blends the charm of a game show host with the histrionics of a classical actor; he mixes the style of a tent show evangelist with that of a football coach; the light touch of a poet with the unblushing determination of an automobile salesman.
He whispers; He roars, he exclaims.
He is at all times engaged. And the audience doesn’t desert him for a second. …
He does not have an original miracle formula that makes life easy. He merely has the courage it takes to remind people that life is only what you make it, that self-respect does not come with the great job, but is brought to the job by people who do the best they can do, with whatever work is available to them.
He tells them to forget the odds, to believe what they know in the pit of their guts to be true.
He believes in himself.
And he believes in the people to whom he speaks.
