I trust, I know, I am abundant

March 24, 2009

Today is the first day in a long time in which I felt free to write. Thanks to those of you who continued to check in.

I was addressing a group of students from Kean University in New Jersey recently and we were discussing how to preserve optimism during this economic crisis. They were concerned about not being able to find work upon their graduation. I shared with them that as future leaders, it is important to be resilient and demonstrate perseverance during challenging times. By being in a state of fear and frustration, they lose the ability to inspire others.

A great way to maintain the ability to be a source of inspiration is to give.

Look for opportunities to contribute. Give what you can: time, money, your personal resources or talents. This is the way an optimist says to the universe, “I trust, I know, I am abundant.” This is the kind of selfless behavior that a leader should exhibit.

My family and I went to the grocery store on Sunday and purchased food to donate to the food bank. My daughters loved it. It felt great!! So give without conditions, the wealth you receive back cannot be measured in dollars and cents.

Thanks for tuning in!
