You never know when or where your influence will be felt.
This morning when I was doing my Morning Momentum (Movement, Meditation, & Manifestation, from my book Mindful Performance), a friend sent me this text. He works for a major health insurance company, and every day a quote is sent to the employees to inspire and motivate them. Today’s quote came from Yours Truly! It turns out that a leader in his organization saw me speak years ago and purchased my book, Your Daily Dose of Mojo: 365 Days of Mindful Living and Working. Since then she has used it to motivate herself personally as well as her team. WOOT!
When we put ourselves out there to create something -- whether it’s a book, a presentation, a video series, or anything else that captures our unique gifts and talents – we are risking judgment and rejection. And yet, a fire within us propels us forward, nudging us to keep going. We often don’t get immediate rewards for our efforts. It can take months or years. We may never hear all the ways we positively impact others. But that shouldn’t stop us from boldly acting and using our influence to make the world a better place.
Keep going. Finish the job. Trust in your talent. The world is watching, whether we know it or not.
(I'll put the links to both books in the comments section, just in case you want to pick up your own copies!)
