Good Vibes

I like to help people. Quite often, when I was in the service, our squadron or group would help out with a charity in the local community. I am lucky enough to have helped at the Special Olympics, worked with Boy Scouts, worked with the Cub Scouts, ran united way type projects within my shops, and had several other great chances to help. 

This is why I believe I became a teacher and a trainer. I love to help people. There is a point at which somebody starts to get the idea, then you can see the light from inside their head just make their whole face shine with the happiness of learning something new. You think I’m kidding, but you can see that happen, and it is one of the greatest feelings in the world.

My goal, usually, is to leave the world a little bit better than I found it. I believe down inside each of us, we have those feelings. We need to survive. We need to take care of our own. And yet, there is a driving desire to also do well for others.

Do you ever get feelings like this? What is one small thing you could do for someone today that would make a difference in their lives? What kind of a sense do you think you would find afterward?  Think about it, and if you would like, please share.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
