Where Dreams Come True

God has a way of getting the point across. God has been telling me emphatically for a few months now. Follow your voice follow your voice. People have been saying more and more often. You have such a great voice you should do radio. I even ran into someone in a store who remembered my voice from a chance meeting over six months ago who reiterated you should be in radio. Today he sent a friend of mine to kick me in the pants.

Where Dreams Come True Podcast

Its a major kick in the pants when there is someone you meet is more passionate about your dream than you are. This is no longer the case. I now have a logo for the podcast / blog www.blindmancan.com. I am reworking www.maskohkan.com to be my voice resume. I am pumped energized positive and passionate. I have been promising and talking about doing something now in the words of Rafiki “IT IS TIME!!”.

A manager of mine who was instrumental in the ultimate achievements of quality in my Information Technology career taught me two major things that I hold dear to this day.

  • First you make your own luck. When you believe in yourself and you commit to yourself and your dreams. Do the work follow through adjust learn from your mistakes. Success will come.
  • Second it is our job as professionals to remove the excuses of those who we support. Well, its also our job as people to remove our own excuses to our own success.

I love the movie “Akeela and the Bee” the whole notion of individual success and the sue of our talents. Read on I’m not sure I can say more.

 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, georgeous, talented, fabulous?   Actually who are we not to be?   You are the child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
~ Marianne Williamson.”
My friend who’s boot print is on my butt taught me today the value of “NO”. In the words of my friend.

“No usually is the consummate rejection. Rejection is all but positive to most and usually equivalent to failure.   No can also be positive and rewarding. It is not the “No” but what we learn from it and what we do about it.  When I hear no I think “No, that is not quite it” and back to the drawing board. I have learned two things 1 what not do to again and again 2 improve on the last attempt and try it again.

You have to fail to succeed seems to be the norm of most really successful people. A small few were born with a silver spoon…the rest traveled the bumpy road to success. The man who created salad in a bag was turned down over 40 times before he found the ‘yes, this is great” Today it is the number two selling product in markets behind the traditional gallon of milk.

The value of no may be in finding the one person or correct set of circumstances that understands  the value in of all the previous no’s equals one huge success!

Again he tells me I am an inspiration. Why I don’t know especially when his boot print is on my butt. Life is always very interesting. The sources of inspiration love and support can come from anywhere. We just need to listen. I have received my wake up call.

More Soon I Promise…..
