You are powerful

You are powerful!  You really are.  No telling what you can accomplish!

Visited Hammond Indiana yesterday and spoke to some wonderful individuals (mostly women) who help other people.  They work with children and families in Early Childhood development.  Their goal is to convince others they can be better than they think they can be.  They don’t always think about it that way but that’s what they are doing;  teaching people (kids & families) to grow … to have vision, to live in a positive atmosphere and to take risk and stretch.   Sounds like living life with an I CAN PLAY attitude.  That’s why I was there.

While preparing the room for the presentation I met a young man who was with security for the University where the conference was held.  He said he worked part time while going to school.  He was studying finanace.  I asked what he was going to do after college.  “Finance” was his answer.

“What company?” I asked.  Said he didn’t know.  “What will you be doing in finance?” I asked again.  Said he didn’t know.  “What will it look like when you do what you do?”  Said he didn’t know … but you could see he was thinking

I suggested he start to answer those questions and begin to see where he was going and also begin to see how it’s going to happen.  He was listening.  You can tell when people are listening.  Then I asked again, “Can you see yourself across the desk with someone asking for your help, maybe trying to buy a house?”  He nodded.  He could not only see himself there he could feel the future!

We finished our conversation.  He was aglow!  He could see success.  That’s vision!

As I continued preparing the room I thought …that’s powerful.  He could see the future as he creates it.  He’s powerful.  We all are!
