From Low Self Worth To Careers From The Kitchen Table – Anything is Possible!






One thing I value in people is their extraordinary ability to rise above difficult circumstances and do greater things than they ever imagined.  We often play small and teach the next generations to do the very same things when we don’t know how valuable or worthy we really are.  Now before you click away thinking this is just another post about ‘positive thinking’, I’m asking you to keep reading.

Whether it’s fear, doubt, worry or any other negative kind of thinking….these thoughts will have a huge impact on our self worth and who we eventually become.

I recently interviewed CNN Radio’s Award Winning Talk Show Host, Raven Blair Davis, and that interview has got to be one of the most inspiring to me personally.   Of course that seems to fit the description of  almost everyone I interview lately, but this lady truly amazed me during this call.  It wasn’t because of her story of being in the hospital with her mother who was terribly ill, it wasn’t because of her incredible career choice and how she helps others to achieve their dreams.  Over a month ago Raven asked me to be in her new book for 2010 along with some of my greatest mentors in business, to which I agreed, but that wasn’t the reason either.  There was one very special reason I asked her for the interview.

Somewhere during our conversations she mentioned that she takes her 13-year-old grandson to work with her.  When I asked her why she stated that it was important to her that his sense of self worth remain strong, and for him to learn that he doesn’t have to go to a 9 to 5 job he doesn’t like if he doesn’t want to, and to teach him that he can build any life he wants to with what God’s given him if he can believe in it.   THIS was the reason I interviewed Raven.

Do you see how taking her grandson to work and sharing insights with him about self worth, tremendous faith and a belief that he can do whatever his hands and feet are given to do could change his entire future?

Now reading this may not have the same impact on you that the interview and book has had on me, but I’ll tell you that Raven’s spirit produces great fruit as you listen to her talk.  She delivers straight from the heart and these are the kind of people I want to continue to bring to this community for you.

Raven talked about how to get from point A to point B and how making money is just a side benefit to finding out your real joy and creating value from your kitchen table if that is all you have to work with.  I honestly couldn’t sleep after this interview was over.

I felt like I could climb any mountain…leap tall buildings in a single bound….any yes my poor husband began to wonder if I was planning to stay up all night to sew a red cape for myself I’m sure.

So let me just say…if you are someone looking for a new career then you have several options. You can choose to move forward, be inspired, seek joy, and maybe change the lives of other people in the world or, you can do as you’ve always done and get what you’ve always got without choosing a different path. Either way it is extremely important to be happy with your choice.  Why not just get the book now and see what happens!

If you would like to keep growing, check out the 5 free audios of others who will inspire you. These audios aren’t of Raven B. Davis but I believe you will enjoy listening to others who may have gone from low self worth to creating a career from their kitchen table too. Just look to the top right and log in. You’ll get the first one immediately for your free download.

So I want to encourage you to continually ~ Be Inspired… Laugh, Love and Grow ~ and if you feel what is written is worth sharing I’d love for you to tweet it to your friends and/or comment and share below.  The more people you can encourage the more people you will touch in your own personal journey.

Make it an awesome day!

  2. Self-esteem is the critical linchpin that all your efforts rotate on. We took in our 15 year old niece a year and a half ago. She spends her LIFE in front of the mirror, clicking poses for her FB, and making movies of herself. She tells us all the time how she loves herself, and nobody can keep up with her, etc. I guarantee you… she has lower self-esteem than any kid in her crowd. But she really covers it well. We’ve learned to ignore her talk and steer her into activities that really do give her stimulation and self-worth. She eats it up!

    So I’d tell parents to beware of the overly extroverted and confident kid. They’re easy to overlook because they seem like they’re all on it. But it’s often a way to hide so they will be overlooked… and left alone to stagnate in their delusions.

    PS: thanks so much for the great inspirational interviews, Kellie.

    Some of us need a wake up call, some of need a stay awake call. Either way, this is really valuable to keeping us moving forward and upward.

    Hello David…it’s so nice to see and hear from you again. You are a very special person who has tremendous insights in my opinion. You are right about so many things and for today, you have given some of the best advice in your comment. I love what you said about needing a wake up call or a stay awake call. I’d never heard that before and surely it’s the truth of what happens in life. Thank YOU for giving time to your niece. She may not know it yet but you have her back and that will be vital to her one day. *BIG HUGS*

    You are lucky Kelly to have interviewed a person who is oozing with inspiration and positivity. Indeed, we have the choice of what we want do with our lives, the only problem is our limited understanding. The more we become aware of our capacity to do anything we put our minds into, the more we discover our true worth. :-)

    Kellie,
    What an awesome experience to interview Raven and become inspired by her words. The ability to move people to action through encouraging words is empowering.

    I love how you are inspiring people to step up and out of their comfort zones to create a spectacular life! Tell your husband you don’t need the red cape, you already wear one!!!
    Thanks so much for starting my day on a super high note,

    Ha! Wearing a cape isn’t my desire but thank you for the kind words. I simply want people to know they can create any life they want if faith is a large part of it. I firmly believe that if you feed faith, then doubt, worry and fear will starve. Holding on to limiting belief systems creates chaos, and yet we do it all the time. None of us have all the answers but we can share a host of wisdom that resonates with others who want to move forward in love. I want to connect with all those who will do that. You my friend, are definitely one of them. Thank you. *HUGS*

    What an awesome experience. The scripture say train up a child… I do believe that means even in their thinking process. “What the Mind Can Conceive The Mind Can Achieve”. You are also building special memories with your Grandson.

    I completely agree that it is so important to instill a sense of worth in our children. One of the greatest things that my parents did with my and my brother is make sure we always knew that we could accomplish anything that we set our minds on. They made it clear, not only by what they said but by what they did.

    I feel that I would not be anywhere near the person I am today if it hadn’t been for them constantly telling me I was strong. I’ve dealt with way more than my fair share of hurdles and letdowns but I always know that I’m strong enough to handle whatever life throws at me.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful story with us. I enjoyed it and I look forward to coming back for more in the future.

    Hi Kellie,

    First…I felt like I could climb any mountain…leap tall buildings in a single bound….any yes my poor husband began to wonder if I was planning to stay up all night to sew a red cape for myself I’m sure….Don’t play Superman like in one of my articles…:-) I tried it, it doesn’t work.

    But more to the point, your are right. I’ve learned the “faith is being sure of what we hope for, evidence of things not seen”. I try to apply that in a lot of areas of my life. But I do have people around me that struggle with self esteem. It’s very challenging to impart words of help to them. Gentleness and steadiness are what I’ve found to help as well. Thanks for your post here as it brought to my mind lots of things.

    Coach Bill you’ll have to share your superman story with me someday. :) The only sure way I’ve found to impart words of encouragement is to treat someone as the king or queen they really are and believe it for them until they believe it themselves. It works every time. Loved your message of faith. Thank you.

  17. Hello Kellie,
    Sandy and I read this blog and agree that it conveys a most important message and does it clearly and with enthusiasm. We are both “seniors,” (closer to 80 than 70) and periodically we are asked, “if you had your life to live over again what would you change?” My own answer is that I hope that I would be more devoted to dreaming and living a life of commitment to the dream. I feel that the necessary foundation for both dreaming and sustained commitment is a healthy dose of self worth.

  18. Kellie…you are full of great things to share…thanks so much! How we perceive ourselves, how we carry ourselves, how we think about ourselves creates an energetic atmosphere that is felt by everyone…most especially our children. We certainly can change our world and our influence by working on ourselves and seeking out those things that truly bring us life so we can in turn share our lives with others. Thanks again!

    Hi Ya Kellie!
    Such a great message! Especially since we are usually told growing up that everyone should get a 9-5 work for a certain time of years and retire. Its so important to encourage kids that anything is possible, we learn so much from our role models. And low self esteem in adult hood can really keep us from doing many things, until we change the way we think and really believe in the possibilities. Thanks for this reminder!

  20. Kellie,

    This is an absolutely wonderful article, and as usual, you get right to the heart of the matter.

    Every career changer, work reinventer, “emerging entrepreneur”, person with an idea, vision, or dream, and every parent needs to read this…and listen to Raven. When I met her in person I felt exactly as you described…ready to leap tall buildings in a single bound – she exudes warmth and energy and humor and compassion.

    Thanks so much!

    Hey Kellie,
    Isn’t it wonderful to be inspired by others that are optimistic, positive and give hope?
    Enthusiasm and excitement, belief in one’s self and inspiration combined with imagination are characteristics we should be sharing with our children for the future. We all do have everything we need right before us to accomplish all that we desire to bring happiness. This is the message that needs teaching in the educational system and by peers.
    Thank you for reminding us. Your message is compelling and will make many people stop and think as they read it, then go forth and spread the word further.

    Awesome post Kellie!

    Love what David said (as well as those of many of the other responders), and your response to him.

    Fundamentals are the building block of any endeavor, from building a skyscraper to a child whose aspirations scrape the sky.

    Love is the corner stone of all fundamentals required for creating self-esteem, that marvelous sense of “self-love” and “okay-ness” that enables us to grow into the greatness that lies within all of us.

    My first time here, have to come back for more. Thanks!

    Thank you, Kellie!

    [Reply]

  30. I really appreciate this and the great comments as well. There are several memories
    I fall back on and am so grateful for. The type of moments that you realize a gift has
    been handed to you… For me I believe many times these gifts accepted in haste,
    have proven very special even when opened later in life.

    Without the wonderfully shared wisdom and encouraging faith, even through some
    of the biggest mistakes, I may have simply lost and not gained the passion, patience
    and understanding I have for life today.

    Keep on doing what you’re doing!

    It is amazing what can happen when someone truly believes in themself. I try to always remember that, for my daughters to become powerful women who realize their full potential, I must first believe in myself and lead by example. What Raven is doing with her grandson is so admirable.

    Thank you for inspiring me today! :)
