Everything in life happens for a reason. I spoke at a Concerned Citizens event last night here in town. A gentleman walked up to me afterwards and asked, "How did you get started in this business?" I told him that I have been speaking all of my life. He then asked, "How did you end up at the Pastoral Institute? I told him what I have heard many of my co-workers say, "I was led there."
I used to work in corporate America. But I just didn't work in a regular company. I worked for one of Fortune magazine's Best Places To Work. Wow! What an education.
If someone had told me ten years ago that I would one day work at the Pastoral Institute doing what I am doing, I never would have believed them. I am able to use all of my life experiences to help people. Every experience I have is a lesson learned and one that I can share with others. And I do so by using my God-given talents.
So, now I will turn the questions back to you. Are you listening? What experiences have you had that can be a beacon of light for someone else? What is your life trying to teach you?
