I got a message from someone who saw me speak in Columbia, Maryland on my Baltimore trip. Again, sometimes I wonder if I, well, suck as a speaker. In addition to what I wrote here, I wonder if people already know what I have to say, or want a different message.
I have to remember that even though I’ve said/heard the message hundreds of times, the people who come to see me speak haven’t. And it’s okay to continue to share this powerful message.
I get very few email messages like the one below, and wanted to share this with you. It really touched me. From Greg Gibbons (logistic & finance professional – check out his professional headline (VERY NICE :)):
*I was laid off due to a merger 10 months ago. I am normally a positive person but after the holidays even I was getting pretty frustrated with my job search. Jason visited a work center I had discovered just days before. I learned more useful information in the 2 evenings I spent with Jason then I have from every other seminar I’ve attended put together. Please convey to his family my sincere thanks for sharing him with us:)
How cool is that?
I really appreciated the message, and his consideration for my family for “sharing me” with others.
This is why I do what I do. I find a lot of fulfillment in touching people’s minds and hearts when I’m on the road. If I can provide hope and encouragement with ideas and tactics, I’m rewarded!
Thank you Greg, for the thoughtful message. I’ll be sure to pass it along to my family 🙂
