hope you all enjoyed the long weekend as I did.
While I was thinking about what I was going to write about today, I received a call from Chris, a good friend of mine. We have been trying to connect for months but for some reason we couldn't until today. It was truly great to hear from him.
Chris is a very successful salesperson and speaker. Several months ago, he told me that he felt the need to change his target market. He felt he was called to speak to the youth. Why? Well, Chris successful career did not come without facing and overcoming a number of challenges himself when he was younger. He now believes that his story can bring hope and help change the lives of young people, especially students.
While speaking with Chris today, he shared with me what had happen to him in the last few months. It was mind blowing. He managed to connect with the right people, some of them were longtime friends of his, who happen to be working with young people (is that a coincidence?)
Chris has travelled throughout Toronto speaking to students with a passion and energy that those who know him have all come to love. His career is really taking off and going in an entirely new direction. After spending time with Chris while in our Mastermind group, as well as sharing time as a friend, I have no doubt in saying that he will surely make a difference. His story is truly stunning!
I think Chris' story is typical of those who find their calling, or purpose in life. Once we connect to what we are really called to do, things fall into place like magic. We still face challenges but from these challenges we learn lessons which strengthen and empower us to go to the next level. Sometimes it's hard to understand life's tragedies, but they become diamonds when we share with others how we overcame them. These diamonds of victories can be seen all throughout Chris' life and it is these lessons that he now shares with young people everywhere. Gongrats my man. You rock!!
Moral of the story? Do you want to find your purpose, just call me in the morning and I will write about you in my blog.
Always a pleasure
