Sometimes on my radio show Military Mom Talk Radio I have the most talented guests. They are wonderful movers and shakers with drive, determination and guts. They make the world a better place. But talent isn’t enough. They are talented for sure.
Funny thing is, when I meet some of these moves and shakers they are often these tiny little women that could blow away in the wind. They are not loud. They are not ferocious. They are sweet and kind and feminine. Not at all the leaders of tomorrow that I have been conditioned to accept.
Carolyn Blashek comes to mind. Head of Operation Gratitude and her 100,000 care packages to the soldiers. She could fit in one of those boxes!!! But her attitude is bigger than all those boxes combined. She believes she can change the world one care package at a time and she did. From a few boxes in her basement to this outstanding 100,000 care package benchmark. I think the secret for success as I see it is an outstanding attitude plus outstanding talent creates outstanding results.
But for the rest of us, like you and me. I will take good talent and a good attitude and see what we can do…
