A dear friend recently wrote that it’s stunning to him how prolific I am. I was both honored and humbled by his comment, and smiled about it because I’m perhaps most stunned of all. Seven years ago I was unaware I had so many things boiling up inside me, or that I’d ever write a book. It always seemed to me it was what some “others” did, those who had that special “something” that I so clearly appeared to lack for the first 55 years or so of my life.
I had the “special sauce” in me and and didn’t even know it. I suspect that we all do, but many of us never discover it, or give up on it before giving it time to grow. I believe it can be a great gift to learn early in life about one’s passion(s) and the gifts for the world that are inside them, especially when they are given the support and encouragement of others.
I’m a late bloomer but I’m blessed with having many amazing people who’ve supported and encouraged me every step, accomplishment, and setback along the way in my great adventure. Thank you to all those of you have done this for me. I’m indeed grateful man.
