If you have ever felt underemployed, under-valued, stuck with no way to move up, hereâ€™s hope. I had the privilege to interview Chip Patterson, AmeriPark CEO, and he tells an amazing story. His life is a window into what happens when we are faithful with the little opportunities versus being a victim. A victim says â€œI deserve better.â€ Faithfulness says, â€œI will give my best while I prepare for something else.â€
The victim says, â€œThere is nothing I can learn here.â€ Faithfulness says, â€œI will leverage this for something bigger and better.â€
Take a moment and listen. You will be glad you did.
Who comes to your mind when you think about self-confidence?Â Contrary to how some people think, those who are self-confident are not the arrogant, boastful, or the loud.Â People who operate with a high degree of self-confidence have the ability to easily look over an offense, to build on failures, and to put others at ease when the winds of adversity begin to blow.
Itâ€™s amazing how much influence authority figures play in building or destroying a personâ€™s self-confidence.Â Bosses and supervisors, spouses and parents, teachers and politicians, all have the capacity to either build or destroy the self-confidence of those who look up to them.
My second guest this weekÂ is Darrin Cohen. He is the CEO of a successful financial planning services firm, Wealth Enhancement & Preservation Of Georgia and is an example of a boss and a parent who inspires self-confidence in others.
