Anxiously, I unfolded my paper to see what others had written about me…
During a group exercise at my Toastmaster meeting last year, we were instructed to write our names on a sheet of paper and then pass it to the next person to the left of us. As the paper move along after a few minutes, each person in the group was requested to express their thoughts [in writing] about you on the paper. By the time my sheet passed ten individuals and then came back to me, I couldn’t wait to see what they had written about me.
Here are a few comments:
• Servant; willing to help
• Great motivator, Man of God, Good Character
• Delightful and professional, easy going
I realized that after all these years, those written qualities and attributes accurately described who I am today.
For most of my life I’ve always felt the need to help others; always supporting and spending time to satisfy the needs of people.

An American speaker and author Jim Rohn was quoted saying “A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.”
It’s been said by many that I have still so much to give and that I have a wealth of knowledge and wisdom to share. So after a time of meditation and careful timing, I decided to start this journey to share what I have through social media efforts. This web-blog was launch in the beginning year of 2013. I opened a new twitter account this past January. My prayer in the future is to:
• be more involved in charitable speaker bureau groups
• work on my upcoming book devoted to mission work
• sustain a profitable speaking venture that would become an umbrella service within my consulting business
• continue to practice what do – not just what I say!
My goal is to connect people’s passion with purpose! Passion is the desire to do while Purpose is the determination to do…desire + determination = dominance!
