Motivational Speaker Begins World Tour at Randolph

Vickrant Mahajan visited with Lower School and Middle School students on November 10.
Author, actor, and filmmaker Vickrant Mahajan is on a campaign to make the world a more positive place. He spent last year on a book tour for his seventh book, Yes, Thank You, Universe, during which time he set 100 world records. Starting here in Huntsville, he is now embarking on a worldwide campaign, Superpositive Planet, for his eighth book, Superpositivity.

There will be two record-setting attempts during his visit, the first at Alabama A&M University, for the most American footballs being caught. The second challenge will be for the City of Huntsville, for the longest handshake relay, at Big Spring Park before the lighting of the Tinsel Trail on November 24, between 7-8 PM. All are welcome to come take part.

Mahajan is embarking on a tour to visit schools in all 196 countries of the world. He began his tour speaking with 1st-8th grade students at Randolph School and shared with them the four things he does every day to make life awesome. His approach, Superpositivity, is based on starting each day with gratitude, saying "yes" more and saying "zero" instead of "no."

He shared a video he has made of his 100 world records. The first one, for the longest speech ever delivered (48 hours and 31 minutes) was the hardest, he told students. But, he added, "If you learn to do hard things, they’re fun." The easiest record to set, he said, was baking the largest carrot cake in the world. "Things are easier when we help others and they help us."
