Inspirational speaker shows how to live free with epilepsy and inspires anyone facing a personal challenge to overcome it and flourish.

In a Nutshell
Does epilepsy touch you or someone you love? Has life thrown you a huge challenge or obstacle that blocks your happiness? Afi Bell triumphed over epilepsy, refusing to let it limit her life or keep her down, and her dramatic story will inspire any audience facing life’s challenges. “Everyone has a big personal challenge,” says Afi, “but in reality, these obstacles are like boot camp. They can actually strengthen your skills and make you flourish.”

Afiʼs contagious energy, compassion, and humor allows her to connect with any audience, from youth to business owners and law enforcement. A strong advocate who works closely with the Epilepsy Foundation, her presentations bring help and hope to those with epilepsy by proving it need not hold you back. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of this health challenge, along with simple solutions for daily management of symptoms, side effects from medicine, and how to deal with the obstacles you face. And if you have the condition, says Afi, you’re in good company. Socrates, Julius Caesar, Florence Griffin Joyner, Harriet Tubman, and Prince all suffered from epilepsy or other seizure disorders! These high achievers did not let anything keep them from fulfilling their dreams.

Whether you’re dealing with epilepsy or another life challenge, Afi’s energetic presentations, offered in both English and Spanish, will give you a fresh perspective. In addition, you’ll gain lifesaving information that shows exactly what to do when someone’s having a seizure instead of helplessly standing by. “On one occasion, 95 per cent of the people around me had no idea that I was having a seizure as I ran around and did twists and turns with my eyes open,” Afi recalls. But though few knew what to do, they did safeguard her purse and phone. It was experiences like these, when well-meaning people reached out to help, that inspired Afi to spread the message that brotherly love is alive and to use her speaking skills to help everyone she meets to overcome whatever personal challenge they face.

You’ll leave Afi Bell’s joyful, energetic presentations determined to not let any personal challenge or obstacle keep you from living life fully and realizing your dreams.

Fast Facts
Afi Bell has a form of epilepsy called Complex Partial Seizure that 95% of the world is unaware of, and that scares most people off. When many employers, including the Peace Corps, learned of her health challenge, they refused to hire her.

Since she must go for over six months without a seizure in order to drive, she keeps her size 6 figure with her BMW workout: Bike, Metro, Walking.

Afi is bilingual, giving presentations in both English and Spanish, and is popular with Latino audiences.

She’s committed to spreading brotherly love, making southern hospitality the signature of America, and to raising media awareness of epilepsy.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work (Business Talk)
(Trabaje en Equipo Hace el Trabaje de Sueno)

This training is focused on fostering a team player mentality, where we win when we utilize our skills together. You’ll learn new ways to communicate and cooperate with fellow team members, set weekly goals and define the skills you need to make things happen. By listening to your co-workers you can fit your ideas and systems together for the greater good and reach your goals faster and with more ease. “20% effort by five people is less work than 100% effort by one person,” says Afi, “so by cooperating, each member cuts their effort by 80%!” The key is learning to stay open to the input of others, knowing that everyone benefits by less work and more results.

Free Your Mind and the Rest Will Follow (Stress Relief Talk)

This program keeps you operating at peak potential. When you’re oxygen-deprived, you’re not operating at your best, and this talk gives you breathing and stress-release techniques you can do in just minutes to handle irritating people and situations. You’ll release negativity and start acting like the winner you are! “This gives you instant confidence and puts pep in your step,” says Afi, who gives you a three-month plan that uses visual cards and pictures to turn your dreams into reality.

You’ll also learn how to tap the unlimited power of your brain by connecting it to your inner voice. “When you make this connection, your inner voice directs you to make the moves that lead to fulfilling your desires,” Afi explains. “In this state of mind, negativity slips away and you realize that you’re a prosperous, successful diamond, you’ll stay ‘upper class’ (cream of the crop), and nothing will ever get on your nerves!”

Listen to Your Gut and Follow Your Intuition

Are you tired of justifying and explaining to others what’s in your heart? This talk shows how, when you’re willing to be bold, your inner voice will lead you, step by step, to the actions that make your dreams a reality.

You’ll learn how to ignore other people’s discomfort with your actions and continue to move forward, no matter what anyone thinks. “In all areas of life, when you focus on the path where your gut leads you, others may not accept your actions or give you credit,” says Afi. “But later on, they will, when they see that by following your inner voice, you achieved your dreams.” You’ll learn how to be bold, follow your gut, and even give yourself a round of applause—for you’re about to be famous! And soon, your sisters and brothers may be looking to you as a leader and following your example.

Have Pep In Your Step

It’s much easier to choose to feel good than to mope and complain that you’re a victim, or that life’s challenges are too much to bear. In reality, your brain is similar to your computer: What you constantly speak out loud is what you feel—and it’s what you’ll accomplish! (If you live in LA, this is like choosing to take the 405 freeway instead of the 10 in all areas of your life.) When you realize that you are in charge of your life and can choose how you want to feel, then even when things don’t work out as planned, you don’t forget that you’re the hero of your story. You are truly a diamond! When you know this, even the things that don’t turn out as planned are stepping stones to future success.

Keep H.O.P.E. Alive! = Happy. Open. Persistent. Encouraging.

We’re all butterflies, but most of us don’t realize it. Maybe we haven’t broken out of our caterpillar cocoons yet, but when we do, we can soar! This inspiring talk will give you the courage to break out of your personal cocoon and feel the strength you have to transform yourself, take flight, and ascend into your desires. You’ll learn how to appreciate the challenges you face daily, and how, even though you may feel you’re in boot camp for a while, you will achieve your dreams. You’ll also harness the power of gratitude, an emotion that can draw to you even more things to be grateful for. “Be grateful for what you have,” says Afi, “because the more you’re grateful, the more wonderful things you’ll attract—because like attracts like!”
