A Free Persuasive Speech Sample For You

Want to see a free persuasive speech example?

So, you’ve read about finding your own persuasive speech topic, and you want to see an example of an entire persuasive speech? I’m happy to let you see one of mine for free… even though it’s part of my new book, even though you might give it yourself without giving me credit, go ahead!

Give me credit if you can… but I hope it’s a great example for you so you can learn to write your own speech, and that you might like the content and think about buying my book.

(Actually – remember the following insight in case you ever write a book – turning part of my book into a speech made that section better! When you write your persuasive speech, you can do a typed version, edit that on the computer, then read it out loud, then change the parts that don’t sound natural. I ended up using the speech incarnation of this instead of the pre-speech version in my book.)

I don’t think the whole speech will fit here, but you can download it here:

Toastmasters International’s Professional Speaker Manual #5 – Motivation – “Acheive Your Health Goals”

i.How much is your health worth? Is anything more important than well being?
ii.Is it worth more than your money? Could you enjoy your money without your health? Maybe you’ve heard the saying that in the first part of our lives we use up our health getting money, and then in the second part we have spend all our money to get our health back
iii.Most of us live how we want until our health interferes – then we want ASAP to escape the disease that came from our lifestyle so that we can hurry up and get back to the same way of life that made us sick.
iv.Good living requires more than generally ignoring your health and occasionally running from disease. Good living has to include well being, an even higher standard of comfort, peace, and physical and mental capacity.
v.You might easily agree that well being is important, but do you have have realistic goals for achieving more well being? Have you put these goals high on the daily priority list?
b.I want to suggest three things to you – that you:
i.Face the facts about what wellness is, and your state of health
ii.Create wellness goals
iii.Achieve them
c.Hopefully, we share some Common Values, Beliefs, and Wisdom:
i.Self improvement is essential to a satisfying life
ii.Persistence and Discipline are keys to success in any endeavor
iii.I’d like you to apply your interest in self improvement to your well being, and do it with discipline and persistence.
a.Tonight, I’m going to give you some insight on the difference between avoiding disease, and striving for well-being.
b.I’m going to clarify for you what well being is, and what the benefits of striving for it are.
c.I’m going to make it crystal clear why it’s common sense to live in a way that prevents disease.
d.Finally I’ll give you examples of wellness goals, and then tell you how to increase your chances of achieving them.
a.First, let’s talk about a writer who had a life-changing experience.
i.Norm Cousins was the editor of the Saturday review for 40 years, and wrote a dozen books and 100’s of essays.
ii.In the ‘60s Cousins was stricken with a crippling and life-threatening disease.
iii.Western medicine had no solution for him, so he devised his own healing regimen that consisted primarily of laughter. He watched endless episodes of Laurel and Hardy, and Abbot and Costello, and laughed his way back to health. He wrote a book about this experience called Anatomy of an Illness
iv.He subsequently participated in a UCLA task force to examine the impact of positive emotions and attitudes on human illness, and out of that grew a mind-body research center named after him
v.It took a life-threatening disease to turn Norman Cousins’s interests and priorities toward prevention and well being.
vi.But one of the marks of wisdom is the ability to learn from other people’s mistakes without having to make them yourself
vii.We can learn start putting well being first right now. We don’t have to wait for a life-threatening, or quality of life-changing disease.
viii.Besides, if we did, there’s no guarantee that if we did wait, we’d be able to recover as Cousins did. Our very life may depend on getting it right the first time.
ix.According to Chinese medicine’s oldest book, from 200 B.C., “The sages of old didn’t treat the sick they treated those who were well… If a disease has already broken out and is only treated then isn’t that like waiting for thirst before digging a well or waiting until the battle begins to make your weapons?”
b.One objection to living preventively is this: Everyone wants to bring up the old farmer who ate 10 pounds of sausage and eggs, smoked 4 packs of cigarettes, and worked 10 hours in the fields EVERY DAY and finally died peacefully in his sleep at age 99 – Obviously, I’ve exaggerated some things- but these people with strong constitutions who can live however they want and still feel good are rare, and notice in the example, he did physical exertion 10 hours a day! The rest of us don’t get much exercise, and sit in chairs and on couches most of the day, so we’re more sensitive to stress and what we eat. As Plato said, “We have made of ourselves living cesspools and driven doctors to invent names for our diseases.”
c.But what about the weak constitution? Is there any hope for them? One of my favorite movie quotes is from the 13th warrior – a weaponless arab swordsman teams up with a group of friendly Vikings who give him one of their swords – he says, “I can’t fight with this- It’s too heavy!” The Viking Leader laughs and declares, “Grow Stronger!” Young Theodore Roosevelt was a nearsighted, asthmatic, frail bookworm. Because of his frequent asthma attacks, he also loved the outdoors and fresh air. He always took numerous hunting and camping trips. When he was twelve, his father challenged him to develop his physical stature, and he responded, spending hours in the gym. In college, he rowed, boxed, rode horseback, and camped. He became a cowboy, and then a sheriff. At 40, he resigned from his Navy post to lead the “Rough Riders” a volunteer cavalry unit, in the war against Spain and became known for his heroism in battle. He was mountain climbing when his vice-presidency ended with McKinley’s assassination, and he won re-election after that term. After presidency, he went on an African safari to hunt big game, and then immediately toured Europe. He was shot while campaigning at age 54 – the bullet had punctured his right lung, but he still gave his scheduled speech before going to the hospital (remember that next time you think about bowing out of your TM commitment!). A year later, he explored the River of Doubt in Brazil. He died of a heart attack at age 61, but in those years he lived more life than 3 average men, and live more vitally because of his devotion to exertion.
d.What is wellness? Most of my patients come to see me because they’re desperate to get relief from some pain or disease – these are great motivators! But sometimes I get others who go through my health questionnaires for some other reason, and they invariably realize they had more health problems than they had thought. They either weren’t paying attention to them, or they had unknowingly lowered their standards to match their slowly eroding quality of life. So, even people who don’t think they have any diseases still may not experience optimal wellness.
e.What’s the difference between disease treatment and wellness? One means ignoring reality until a negative thing happens, then running from it. The other means envisioning a positive, and striving to attain it. Our own experience teaches us how miserable a life is that consists of sticking our heads in the sand and then putting out fires. Hopefully, you also have some experience with making positive goals and achieving them, and the school of hard knocks has taught you it’s the better way.
f.If you haven’t committed to wellness, created health goals, and aren’t striving to achieve them, then you’re just waiting for your health to disappear.
g.Thomas Edison said, “The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition,” and a co founder of Johns Hopkins University and one of the most influential and exemplary MD’s ever, William Osler said, “One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.” In Chinese medicine, we look at acupuncture, herbs, drugs, and surgery as medical interventions for disease, to be used as a last resort- when they are needed, it means we already failed to live well. The norm these days is that almost everyone is so out of balance that they need some degree of medical intervention. No one ever taught us how to live well, to safeguard our energy, to balance ourselves with the seasons, etc.
h.Albert Schweitzer was a doctor who spent 50 years in Africa fighting leprosy and sleeping sickness, and for that won the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize. He once said, “It’s supposed to be a secret but I’ll tell you anyway. We doctors do nothing. We only help and encourage the doctor within.” He also said, “Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment, and learn again to exercise his will—his personal responsibility.” Most of us have given up some of our power over our own well being. We want the physicians and scientists to solve the problem of health for us. Instead of changing our exercise and eating habits, we try the next miracle pill. To be sure, drugs are necessary in many situations, but only because our lifestyles took us to a place of disease. As Schweitzer says, we need to take responsibility for our own health. You have more power than you think over your well being – take responsibility for it, and make it happen!
i.Car maintenance
i.If you never changed the oil in your car, the engine wears on itself, and eventually can seize up beyond repair. The common sense of preventive measures is why we have schedule maintenance check-ups, 6 month dental cleanings, and yearly physicals.
ii.However, most medical checkups are too short, and are focused on disease, not wellness. They aren’t thorough enough to help you live in optimal health.
4.How can you fact the facts about well being and the state of your health?
a.I’m putting a lot of information in the Prevention and Optimal Living book I’m writing. To help you measure your state of health, and see how constructive your lifestyle is or isn’t, I’ve created a series of quizzes – they’ll also be in my book, but I’d be happy to get you the rough copies if you just can’t wait.
b.But you need to know what you can expect from wellness: Comfortable breathing, no pain anywhere in your body, the ability to go into any reasonable environment without getting a cold or flu, a reasonable appetite, perfect digestion, the perfect bowel movement – comes out easy, doesn’t smell, and doesn’t require a whole roll of toilet paper to clean up, no PMS, perfect vision and hearing, easy, restful, restorative sleep, staying asleep all night, and waking up refreshed and invigorated, staying alert and energetic throughout the day, emotional balance, serenity, peace, patience, and an open heart and mind
5.What are some Examples of the Goals I want you to set for yourselves?
a.The most important things you can change to improve your wellness are your eating habits, exercise, rest, and emotions.
b.I’m going to exercise 3 times per week, or even more primary: I’m going to try every form of exercise I can until I find the ones I love to do.
c.I’m going to eat the foods that Chinese medicine says will balance out my patterns of imbalance.
d.I’m going to do a relaxing or spiritual activity for a half an hour, 4x per week
e.I’m going to have a peaceful dinner with friends or family at least 3 times per week.
f.All of these will help you achieve greater well being and prevent more disease.
6.How Can You Achieve Them?
a.With persistence and discipline. We’ll never be perfect, so the most important thing is that you make progress. John Wooden, the most winning college basketball coach in history said, “Success is being as prepared as you can possibly be- being the best you that you can be.” He also said, “People usually know what they should do to get what they want. They just won’t do it. They won’t pay the price. Understand that there is a price to be paid for achieving anything of significance. You must be willing to pay the price.” But don’t get overwhelmed- If you don’t start, you’re continuing to fail. Just pick one thing to work on, and get started. Just do it!
b.Another key is teamwork. If you find someone, a group of people, or even just one person who also wants to commit to well being, you can meet weekly to talk about your progress and help each other. If you have trouble during the week, you can call them. Just knowing there are others with the same purpose will refresh your enthusiasm.
c.Cicero said, “Men decide far more problems by hate, love, sorrow, joy, hope, or fear, than by reality, authority, or any legal standard.” So, get to know what well being is, and learn to love it. Identify your unhealthy habits, and develop a seething hate, a real disgust for them. Healthy people like healthy people, so you’re more likely to find love and romance when you nourish your own well being – unless you’re looking for a really sick partner, or a partner who digs really sick people,. Think about what a pity it is that some people are killing themselves day after day, whether intentionally or out of ignorance, with their poor lifestyles. Develop a positive and hopeful picture of your future and how important well being is to it – most likely, every dream and goal you have already assumes that you will feel well enough to enjoy it once you achieve it.

Innovative New Gold Mining Methods With Mobile Gold Mining Equipment(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); By Cliffton Houser on August 02, 2012 0

The purpose of this document is to outline a suggested mineral processing plan based upon the utilization of the GSI MobileMax mobile gold processing plants. The MobileMax 7500’s have an average processing capability of 3.4 metric tons per hour. The MobileMax mobile processing plants are developed to operate 24 hours per day solely off of a sustainable and battery backup energy source integrated into each plant.

This Mineral Processing Plan is designed to provide the necessary information to estimate energy costs, processing capabilities, equipment required and processing high availability.


The MobileMax energy systems are developed to provide power for the following processes;

• Power the high efficient Baldor ½ hp motors that power the linear motion of the tables

• Power the water pumps utilized for the gold concentration process

• Power the gold vacuum driven collection system

• Power the LED operational lighting system

• Power the energy management and diagnostics including the laptop computer

• Power optional security camera systems and visual data logging


As a standby and additional field power source, the MobileMax processing plant has a 7kva Kubota diesel generator tied into the power system with automatic switch gear. The automatic switchgear will initiate a generator startup upon a low voltage battery condition that can be caused by a component failure. The Generator at 60% load will utilize 1.5 liters per hour (based upon average field conditions). With the expanded double wall DOT approved fuel cell the MobileMax processing plant has enough fuel for approximately 151 hours of operation.


The energy equipment standard on all MobileMax systems includes 16 US made 300 watt high efficiency solar panels with SMA inverters. Depending on site wind conditions, an optional tilt-up 2.5kW variable pitch wind turbine is installed at the front of the processing trailer. All energy harvesting and control equipment is mounted in the trailer enclosure at the front of the trailer. Each solar panel’s health and output can be monitored from the laptop computer.


Common situations effecting remote mining operations are spare/replacement parts. Each MobileMax plant has a complete spare parts cache. Every factor that could shut down the processing plant has been taken into consideration and planned for. The spare parts included afford a backup for all critical systems and functions. The typical GSI response time for the shipment of a replacement part is within 24 hours VIA air transport to the closest major airport or desired location the client requests. The failed part is required for warranty credit. For an extended service contract, the response for a service engineer is within 72 hours (subject to flight availability and travel time). Under the GSI warranty, the customer is required to provide, airfare, airport pickup, safe transport, safe and reasonable lodging, and GSI personnel safety while they are performing work at the site.


The MobileMax processing plants require less than 2 normal working days, under most conditions, to be setup and running. All connections and assemble points are color coded and numbered for a swift and simple assembly. Each processing plant includes additional hardware and a toolkit capable of servicing all GSI components


Environmental/site/workforce conditions that could affect the MobileMax include;

• Setup over previously disturbed or high moisture count ground may cause the system to require a re-leveling condition | The MobileMax system will require stable virgin or compressed ground with a load bearing capacity of > 2500 PSF. A simple thumb test can be performed to identify the ground support capability

• Improper operation | Proper training and monitoring will be required to ensure the MobileMax system operates a peak performance

• Processing security, theft or damage due to attempted theft | The MobileMax systems are fitted with several levels of security measures to ensure a prompt site personnel reaction time and multi-levels of security. The levels of security include;

• 3mm diamond plate aluminum surround for the enclosure

• A double slide bar configuration 1 cm thick for the entry door with keyed high strength master locks in-addition to the standard door lock

• An intrusion alarm with megaphone audible and automatically activated strobe lights

• A triple locked 4mm thick steel lockbox for gold containment

• A tamper proof global GSP tracking device

• Optional IP based security camera system with audio and night vision. All data is captured and stored in the provided ASUS laptop. Data logging must be removed on a periodical base due to HDD storage capacity.


The MobileMax processing plants are developed to conform or exceed all engineering, mechanical, and electrical safety standards. All moving parts are painted yellow. All pinch points are guarded and painted red. The supplied electrical components are UL approved (for North, Central and South American markets) and are protected via a GFI supplied electrical system. Two push button E-STOPs located on each side of the trailer. The setup of the trailer requires a supplied copper grounding rod to be driven into the ground for the protection of a direct lightning hit in addition to supporting the proper grounding of the sustainable energy harvesting equipment. All electrical wiring is run through PVC conduit. All energy harvesting components are securely wall mounted and connections including wire are shielded from the accidental contact of a site worker. Multilingual advisory placards are strategically located to clearly indicate the potential hazard condition. All electrical components are double grounded. Each component is protected by a properly sized breaker system with matching wire size. Breaker panel is located within the trailer enclosure/lab. Full onsite training is available and supplemented by multilingual easy to read and understand booklets. For illiterate workers, one-on-one training must be provided.


The material to be processed must be crushed and classified to a size ranging for 150-200 mesh. The material size is very imports for the separation of precious metals form non-value minerals. If the ore material is of high sulfide count a pre-roasting condition may apply. Ferris based metals are captured and removed through a multi-level magnet system located in the feed shoot.


The preferred loading method for the MobileMax processing plant is via the optional FLEXITUBE screw conveyor system. The FLEXITUBE conveyor system is a US made system that simplifies the loading process to the top row of tables. The hopper is located at ground level. The top row of tables is the starting point for the concentration process. The top row of tables can be manually loaded by site personal if site conditions require. There is a mid-level catwalk included to provide complete access.


Every site has conditions that affect the method of processing the gold or other precious metal ore. GSI can only recommend a suggested process map based upon optimum site conditions, unknown material hardness, efficiencies of non GSI equipment, and employee work training and efficiency.

The suggested GSI process map is as follows;

From the point of material extraction, a grinding method must be employed to reduce the size of material to an acceptable size of the GSI MillMax ball mills. The size required is not to exceed the average size of ¾ chip gravel. This ensures the MillMax products will operate peak efficiencies.

The continuous flow MillMax ball grinder is a two stage ball grinder mounted on a duel axle trailer. The pre crushed material is fed into a hopper at the tongue side of the trailer and flows through the ball mill with the assistance of water and gravity. The processing capable material flows out in a slurry mix at the proper size need to be loaded into the FLEXITUBE conveyor staged for loading into the MobileMax processing plant. The newly developed MillMax continuous flow ball mills are offered as a diesel powered or sustainable energy powered self- contained mill.

The containment and flow of the MillMax processed material is recommended as follows; depending of the efficiency a containment pond for the pre-concentrated material may be needed. There are several variables that affect a ball mill grinder’s throughput. The new MillMax ball mill grinder will process 1.5 to 3 MTPH (depending on material hardness). To meet each of the MobileMax systems throughput the operation of the grinder may need to be on a longer duration in-order to build a stockpile of process ready material. If the mining operation is to be 24 hours a day 2 MillMax grinders will be required. The post ground material can be manually fed into the FLEXITUBE hopper or through an optional small conveyor system. For short term / duration mines GSI recommends a manual approach to reduce costs and energy requirements.

The post-concentration material (tailings) can be directed to virtually any location on the mine through manual or automatic means. For “open sky” mines, GSI recommends the stockpiling of the tailings for the environmental purpose of filling the pit back in.

GSI also recommends mining companies perform random tailings testing via a small supplemental series of tables mounted on a trailer, or lab testing to ensure the complete capture of high value material.

Airsoft Sniper L96 Scope Cam 550fps Video1

Sniper Scope cam video of a game at Minerva Combat(Malaga,Spain). I'm using a Well L96 Warrior at 550fps(20gr bb) and i'm using 40gr bb's. ClanRR Facebook → …


◄ ŘỸǍÑ↔Š ►™ツ asked What are some good airsoft snipers I can buy with scopes?

I am looking for airsoft sniper rifles right now that I want for my b-day but I dont know what to get, but I want it to have a cool came and a scope!!!
anyone know?

And got the following answer:

If you would like a sniper with a scope, I recommend the AGM MP-001. I have personally owned this gun and highly recommend it. It reaches about 400 FPS out of box and uses a spring bolt. The scope included is a GREAT Quality scope from AirsoftGi or NC STAR with 2000 bb’s.

Unfortunately, Not many airsoft snipers rifles come with a scope. BUT, for the rifle I would recommend th KJW MKI because it inexpensive and an amazing sniper. Depending how much money you are willing to spend, you could buy this rifle and a scope along side. This gun will run around $90-$120. This sniper, with a simple mod, will reach 610 FPS or 500 out of box!!! Its also Semi-Auto.

George Lopez asked What is the cheapest airsoft sniper rifle with a bi-pod and scope i can get?

i want to know were i can get a cheap airsoft sniper rifle with a bi-pod and a scope that realy magnifies?

And got the following answer:

Take a look at the JG bar package at

It is a relatively cheap rifle that can be upgraded to great performance. But only with upgrades will you be able to get it to be effective.

jan asked Where can I get a good and cheap airsoft sniper scope?

Where can I get a good and cheap airsoft sniper scope?
The rail mounts on the snipe scope should be 20mm
Thanks for replying

And got the following answer:


Trev asked What magnification should i get for an airsoft sniper scope?

I’m going to get an L96 Airsoft sniper rifle, and my friend said that getting a 3-9×40 scope would be best. Im new to airsoft so i dont really know what would be a good scope. The airsoft matches are a relatively medium sized area in the woods. Probably 1-1/2 acres.

And got the following answer:

if this is your first gun, don’t buy a sniper rifle, it may destroy you’re interest in airsoft because of the lack of accuracy at over 50 feet. i know from experience having the L96, its not that great, its one of the decient guns.

if you live in Canada, buy from or FCsurplus, there shipping is reliable, but they only ship to canada. if you live in the U.S, buy from i recommend a AEG (or a fully auto gun in lamest terms) to start, than, after about 1 year of of experience if you are still intreasted in being a sniper and you know you’re very acurate at ranges above 130 feet, than buy the L96, but do research on it before purchace . when and if you do this, than yes, buy the 3-9×40 scope.

tommygun asked What type of airsoft sniper should i get?

I want a airsoft sniper (not an aeg). I want it to be accurate come with a scope and bipod. I want it between 400 and 500fps preferably not 500 because my friends wont play with me. I like the L96 models but im not sure. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

And got the following answer:

Are you looking for a spring rifle? If so, Sig Sauers are great. They have a rifle out called the “Black Eagle” or something like that. I don’t know how much it costs but I’ve heard its well worth the money. You should to go ShortyUSA’s website and look at the selection there.

I’m guessing you don’t want a gas rifle. They cost way too much money and it’s hard to find a good gas rifle that comes with a scope and bipod. But, if you do then get one made by KJW or HFC.

The best value you can get though would be one of the L96 models. They are durable and reliable. And if you can buy one that comes with a scope and bipod it will be well worth the money.

Here is one I found that I think you might like:

This is a great gun, it is between 430 and 460 fps, and the 30 round magazine just adds to the many great things about this gun. It costs $130, which is a pretty good price for a great rifle with a scope and bipod. If I were you, I would buy this one.

Good luck when you play your friends! Try to not put any eyes out!

Hayden Wiley asked How much should I sell my airsoft sniper rifle for?

I won’t to make my money back and I am thinking of selling my $150.00 airsoft sniper rifle It is
*450 fps, comes with a bystand, tools, has a mount for a scope, black, have not done any painting on it what so ever, has not been used.
I won’t to try and get a little bet more money out of it so I can start on some other projects.

And got the following answer:

have you upgraded or added anything onto the original package? If you have then add the price of those parts and accessories + what ever you want for the labor it took to upgrade. If you haven’t upgraded it in any way, then nobody is going to buy it since they can go online and buy it for the same/better price. If it hasn’t been used then you can sell if for just as much as you bought it for.

George Lopez asked What is the cheapest airsoft sniper rifle with a bi-pod and scope i can get?

i want to know were i can get a cheap airsoft sniper rifle with a bi-pod and a scope that realy magnifies?

And got the following answer:

Take a look at the JG bar package at

Riley asked Where can i get a good quality cheap airsoft sniper?

Where can i get a 500-550 fps airsoft sniper rifle with a scope? I need it to be $115 or under. If it could be an L96 thatd be awesome!

And got the following answer:

Hobbytron sucks
the agm mp001 is only 75 dollars and is still a good gun.

Trev asked What magnification should i get for an airsoft sniper scope?
