Big Fish

Have you heard of The Big Fish Blog?  Robin Fisher Roffer offers up doses of inspiration.  And I like it.  Here is something I read today:

Marianne Williamson once said, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.”


A Vase to Overflow

Tomorrow I will attend another Crescent City Toastmasters Club meeting.  My role is to give the invocation and lead the flag salute.  Here is the thought I will share with the group:

Life is a magic vase filled to the brim, so made that you cannot dip from it nor draw from it; but it overflows into the hand that drops treasures into it.

Drop in malice and it overflows hate; drop in charity and it overflows love.

~John Ruskin

{First Day On the Job}

No, it’s not my first day on the job, but it will be soon.  Here’s some advice that will be important to remember:

Remember that you were hired for a reason – your skills, your knowledge, your ability, your potential. Do not allow yourself to be intimidated by those who have been on the job longer than you. Bring your knowledge to the table. Speak up when you have an idea. Blaze your path as an emerging leader.
