How Work-a-bees and Wannabees Took a Leap of Faith to Become VIPs.
Extra Word – (Reflections for moving in the right direction.)
Your true calling can take on a life of its own as an extension of what you do to make a living.
Who Says – (Tweets and Tips from people you know)
– Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. – Carl Jung
– Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected. (Steve Jobs) – @ManagersDiary
Faith Attack – (A probing question or insightful feedback from the “Purpose Posse.”)
Q: How do you know if an opportunity that seems to require a leap of faith is not a setup for failure?
A: Great question! You’re never 100% sure, but check your gut for some clues. Look into your heart for how emotionally attached, detached or aroused you get. The rest becomes known as you take the leap of faith which helps to clarify your vision or further align you with your true calling.
Wise Crack – (A good laugh or timeless message that stirs the soul.)
An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.”
“Pop, what are you talking about?” the son screams.
“We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the old man says. “We’re sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her,” and he hangs up.
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like hell they’re getting divorced,” she shouts, “I’ll take care of this.” She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at the old man, “You are NOT getting divorced. Don’t do a single thing until I get there. I’m calling my brother back, and we’ll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don’t do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone, too, and turns to his wife. “Okay,” he says, “they’re coming for Thanksgiving. Now what do we tell them for Christmas?”
