The greatest opportunities come from the hand of a person. When I look at some of my most meaningful opportunities and blessings, they all began with an introduction… An opportunity to get to know another person. A friendship formed with mutual respect often, because we both do what we do with passion. And sometimes, at some future date an opportunity appeared and they thought of me.
I have wondered if some of my opportunities were because they were my friend and not because of my talents. This would leave me feeling bad about myself and believing that I wasn’t worth the recognition for what I’d done. But then I realized, what is even more important that what we do, is who we are.
I do what I do because of who I am. I believe in what I do because of who I am and I strive for what I do because of who I am.
Continue to be who you are meant to be and put yourself in situations where others can help you be what you dream of because of who you are.
