It's always interesting to observe the "powerful" at work & those who believe themselves to be powerful. What a difference!
I attended the *NAB/RAB RadioShow last week & heard a passionate keynote from entrepreneur/radio host, Tom Joyner, followed by a heartfelt award acceptance from Dan Mason, President, CBS Radio & a man equally impassioned by radio - & life.
Following the luncheon, I spoke with both men & was not only impressed, but inspired by their genuine natures & ability to connect in the present moment.
By contrast, I met others who stayed busy checking their cell phones or looking around the room as they feigned conversation. One, the manager of a well-known show host, even sneered at my offer to send him my novel, Heaven, for a possible interview. Really? No problem - your loss, buddy. Not because he needs to accept, but because his attitude is a reflection of his inner life.
Power-full people understand that there's magic in the moment & they want to make sure they don't miss it. Their hallmarks: sparkling eyes, warm smile, open heart, kind nature, presence in & with the moment.
Their energy is fully connected - tethered at both ends of the spectrum. They are sexually magnetic & spiritually inspired (whether they recognize it in that particular way or not).
Dan Mason had just finished accepting a big industry award & was surrounded by congratulating peers & admirers. He welcomed me, graciously, when I approached.
I walked the hall with Tom Joyner after the luncheon. It was easy, comfortable. We parted with Tom saying, "Be easy".
Yeah. Right on.
Are you acting powerful or actually power-full? Because there's kindness in real power. Check yourself - regularly - to feel & understand if you're flowing. If not, it's time. Get to the nearest A/C & jack in.
The world is evolving. Peace, patience, love, joy, truth, kindness, gratitude, forgiveness, generosity, trust, faithfulness, self-control...are sexy, righteous & powerful.
