One of the podcasts I love the most is ReLaunch with Best selling author Joel Boggess and Dr. Pei. The guests they interview have all met with adversity and have somehow overcome their circumstances to meet with a new and rewarding life. In this, I encourage you to tune in and listen.
What makes the show delightful, and dare I say addictive, is the richness of authenticity by the guests and hosts alike. For example, in show 236 world-renowned best selling author, Jack Canfield, describes his personal challenges after his divorce. It is as though the guests are simply having a conversation among friends, a true delight for the ears.
However more than what the show is and so greatly conveys are the inspirational moments really hitting close to home. In my case, simply hearing the stories of those who have done what I want to do and who have “ReLaunched” into a new career is great encouragement. What’s more is they candidly describe their challenges in following their true path and purpose giving me a sense of validation that I am on the right path.
As testament to the power of this show I can tell you I have only been listening for a little over a week and it has undoubtedly struck a cord with my inner being. With this, I reached out to Joel on social media and was delighted to chat with him for a few minutes.
In part we discussed some minor handshacking questions to get to know one another a little better first. During our conversation I asked Joel to mentor me through my journey. To this I feel compelled to offer a brief overview. My passion is to motivate people who feel they lead a broken life into breaking the chains that bind them and discovering the good and greatness from within them. In this respect I think I am in alignment to some degree with the ReLaunch Show.
As Joel and I continued our chat he mentioned that not having complete clarity is not a problem where it will develop over time. I certainly agree seeing how it’s taken a number of years and experiments of sorts to even come this far. I understand the degree of ones success is really a measure of committing to an endeavor where discovering what works and doesn’t filters the mental chatter in to workable conclusions of purpose that support you.
Where am I in this endeavor? Well… I am a Former IT Manager who is now delivering Chinese food for a living. In this, I get to see numerous customers daily and spend a brief moment with them in their day. Delivering is an eye opener to my vision in understanding people just a little better and knowing that each us want and need the richness of caring relationships in our lives. So I get to share a smile while wishing them a wonderful day. Best of all I get to deliver their food to them.
In all it pays the bills and allows me a few minutes a day to manage a life transition for doing something truely awesome. I am not where I want to be, yet, but I am not in a bad place. God is showing me multiple co-current challenges to shape me in to the person I need to be. The way I read this is He must have something truely remarkable for me to do. All this to say my faith is building and no longer can I take the back seat to my life.
