As a child, I knew that I wanted to work with children, to listen to their troubles, to nurture their dreams, to be a catalyst for their greatness. I think this desire came pre-installed but my Mama reinforced it. She made it her business to help us avoid the mistakes that she believed she’d made. It was clear to me that the generations that follow yours should live an immensely better life. And they should explore the breadth of human potential in ways that build on their predecessors’ accomplishments and perceived failures.
Over the course of my career, I’ve been involved a range of programs for children and youth. I even created a few like, Not Just Child’s Play: Using Your Imagination to Improve Life, Destination Greatness, and I Know Me™ Kemetic Yoga™.
You can probably guess what’s at the heart of each program. Yes, my secret has been out. Thankfully, I’m not shy about it. I believe each one of us has a unique purpose and we are destined to make a meaningful and lasting impact on the world around us.
So, I’ve been particularly moved by an idea that keeps showing up in the personal development books and websites that I read daily. Yes, I walk my talk. Personal development is on my calendar everyday.
Here’s one thing that teachers, coaches and motivational speakers seem to agree about – mediocrity. You know, ordinary, regular, no sprinkles or sparkles, the same old same old. Now, some of us like the same old thing when it comes to a good cup of coffee or maybe even a reliable car. But mediocrity in our life equates to lack of fulfillment.
At Life In 4-Part Harmony, mediocrity means your truth is unfulfilled. Your life is out of order, imbalanced. And the world is not benefitting from your life purpose. Your life is about honoring your greatness, doing good in the world, improving the human condition. Yes, you came to do great things in the world. So I’ve got some questions for you to ponder. The answers will help you with your roadmap to greatness.
By now your juices are simmering. You’re starting to see that roadmap from the comfort of ordinary to an extraordinary destiny. GO FOR IT! It’s why you are here.
