Here’s a stretch for you: Create your own video introduction. It’s a bold way to put your aspirations out front. Below is our new video intro for the Now What?® Program.
Today’s video features real estate mogul, Barbara Corcoran. The interview runs about 7 minutes and includes some great perspective from Barbara. She advises entrepreneurs to “grow the business before you’re ready” and to figure out what your gift is. Having her boyfriend comment, “You’d be great in real estate sales,” was Barbara’s turning point years ago. What do people say you’d be great at doing? It may be worth some consideration.
Today we bring you an interview by Jane Pauley who is now hosting Your Life Calling, a new series produced by AARP. Here she interviews, Richard Rittmaster, a former Lutheran minister now chaplain in the U.S. Army National Guard. Rittmaster shares several rich insights including how he listened to his burn-out and depression rather than fighting it. “I was committed to paying attention.” We appreciate that comment and in Now What?® we’ve seen that paying attention is the way to intuition and clarity. While listening for guidance, Rittmaster did a stint as a bar tender during which the opportunity to become a chaplain for the army presented itself.
Reflecting on his experience, Rittmaster concludes that becoming “who we’re designed to be” means exercising the gifts that most engage us. What are the gifts or talents that you’d like to exercise?
