How many times have you gotten to the end of the road and asked yourself, “Do I go left or right?” I look back and see all the choices I made that brought me to where I am today. All of my work focuses around those choices and events in our lives, people we’ve learned from, and people who have inspired us.

People often ask me, “How did you get started?” I don’t think there really is a starting point, just choices that bring you to your own “Finish Line.” We’ve all come to that point in the road where we have to make the decision to go left or right. My decisions started at a very young age. I was held back in 2nd grade when my teachers told my parents that I couldn’t read or communicate well. I think it was in the 4th grade that my teacher once again told my parents that I wouldn’t amount to much. What if I had gone down the road that those people had chosen for me? Thank god I’ll never know. With the help of my family, I chose to believe in myself.

After high school my career path took me in many directions, from a small business owner, to the marketing director of a Fortune 500 company. Throughout all of this, I crossed the paths of many lives, and started to receive letters from people that wanted to thank me for inspiring them. As I looked back on the things people wrote, I realized they were writing the same kind of sentiments and finally it hit me: This was my gift to give back to the world! Six years ago I reached that road sign that gave me the choice to go left or right. Two weeks before Christmas I quit my job and decided to share my gift with the world.

With my current work, I want 4th graders to be able to be to get something out of it as well as their parents. The struggles and challenges that children face are just as confusing as the ones that adults face. Hopefully my life’s work will provide you with some thoughts and tools for making the decisions you need to make. Just remember: The “Finish Line” is also the “Starting Line.”

You and the people around you may lead good lives, but wouldn’t you rather live the “Outstanding Life.” John Dmytryszyn, “The Motivational Cowboy” is willing to offer you and your group a complete package of tools to show you how to accomplish your goals.

“What a unique sound – it’s like regular songs but with a story teller! These are beautiful songs too – I really really love this music. Gonna try to find out where this handsome man is playing.” – C. Johnson

“I was going through a real tough patch when I miraculously found this. Honestly, I was having trouble understanding my worth in even existing. However, the words of this motivational cowboy not only helped me to understand my value in the world, but also the intrinsic value in others. Now I volunteer twice a week at a no-kill animal shelter and I’m a “big brother” for children who grew up as I did. On the street and alone. I now try to share the gifts I have with others thanks to the stories I’ve heard here, and encourage others who may be struggling or know those who are, to purchase this and live life the way it was meant to be lived!” – Matteo Cosmopolitan

J.C’s latest Pro Tools production is the new CD from Johnny D called Outstanding Bound.
Says J.C, “It was a real joy working on this project. Johnny D is a sublime Spoken Word Artist and our job was to create the music behind his words in order to pack the biggest emotional punch. Songs like Legacy, honoring his daughter, and My Beautiful Wife, are real ground breakers and I think they will reach far beyond the Spoken Word/Contemporary Christian market. It was also a pleasure to have Al Ruggiero and Jim Lanier share lead vocal duties on these songs. I will be submitting this for Grammy consideration for the 2014 Grammys!”

OUTSTANDING this is what it means to me.
Out of every situation, the outcome can be a positive or negative.
U You have the power within yourself to decide what that outcome will be.
Two negatives make a positive, so go straight for the plus.
Sharing of yourself does not mean taking away, but adding to the whole.
Thank you for taking the time to ask.
A dream is reality in the making.
Never look at past choices as mistakes, only experiences to learn and grow from.
Dare to live beyond your limitations.

I can make a difference, one person at a time.
Now is the time to stand out & rise above the rest.
Go straight for the top; don’t settle for the middle.


I just wanted to let you know that I admire you greatly and that I told my family all the stories you told us…..i even cried for the third time telling the story about the daughter and her christmas present to her dad. I think I might even want to do something like your job when I go out into the world. I really see things a different way now and I just want you to know that you are the reason. I just want to be true to myself and everyone else. I just want to be myself. Thank you motivational cowboy, you definitely made it on my list of heroes.”

Student – Lincoln Park middle School

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful speech you gave at my recent fundraiser. Your words served as a great inspiration to the many volunteers in attendance that evening. I truly believe that your speech had a positive impact on my volunteers and helped motivate them to work so tirelessly on my campaign.”


“We wanted to write and thank you for the Outstanding motivational talk! Our seventh grade students truly enjoyed your experiences and energy! The students spoke about you for weeks afterward. Thank you again for taking the time to talk to our students and make a difference in their lives, work and feelings about themselves.”


“Thank you very much for appearing as our guest speaker at our meeting. Your inspirational message was very timely and caused our members to renew their service and commitment to the tenants and precepts of our Rite.”



“It was a pleasure having you participate in our General Sales Meeting. Our sales staff really enjoyed your motivational talk. It really created some enthusiasm in each and every one of our sales personnel. This is evident in our June sales volume. We were up 4.3% for the month. I feel this was a direct reflection upon your presentation.”



“I would like to send a special “Thank You” to you for your recent presentation relevant to “The Outstanding Life.” Your stories and articulation of your ideas were certainly a fine demonstration of how a positive attitude can and will affect our everyday lives. I have had phenomenal positive feedback from the members that were present and we would be most pleased to have you come back again and be with us at some future functions.”



“Your motivation and enthusiasm is an inspiration to everyone. Since your visit, our people have worked hard to be more focused, enthusiastic and more outgoing . Our events are definitely more successful than last year. We look forward to many more “Outstanding” events in our future.”


“Thank you for the “Outstanding” presentation you provided to the several hundred attendees of the Redwood Dental Group all-staff meeting. Your enthusiasm and inspirational stories contributed to the success of the meeting. Several of the doctors and administrative staff were truly moved by your message of Image, Attitude and Focus.”


“The students at Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice, have shown through their speaking and actions that they valued what you had to say. One of our children’s parents called to thank the Department for having you come and speak to the children. This particular parent was impressed with your insight and your taking the time for our youth.”


It’s not easy to find presenters who are able to tailor an existing training program into what became a training experience. I think it was very important for everyone that attended to see living proof that living an “Outstanding” life while maintaining such a positive attitude not only can be done, but is in fact the ONLY way to live and work.”


“Your presentation to the students in the Bartow County Alternative Program was outstanding . You kept our students spellbound and interested in what you had to say for the entire presentation. Your message that anyone who is willing to put forth the effort can be successful was delivered clearly. I appreciate people like you who can enthusiastically touch the lives of young people who have not had the opportunity to be successful .”


“On behalf of the entire Greek system at Western Michigan University, we feel compelled to express our gratitude for your presentation on living the outstanding life. Your words of inspiration were greatly appreciated by all 2,000 of our undergraduate student body. Your motivation and enthusiasm captivated us to work hard, set goals and remain focused on our future endeavors. . . . You truly are the outstanding example of a great mentor.”
