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!
