Find Your Voice…one of my recent speeches

Find Your Voice
Voice-a range of such sounds distinctive to one person, or to a type of person or animal: Her voice is commanding. The condition or effectiveness of the voice for speaking or singing: to be in poor voice.
*I need your help. My voice is very soothing and relaxing and may cause the person sitting next to you to fall asleep. Please wake them up when they begin to nod off. Thank You!
*I want to thank all Bay Area Californians. Silicon Valley helped me make the money I needed to find my Voice which is helping people around the globe. (Orphans Faith Home-Bishop Babu, etc.)
Successful-having succeeded in one’s endeavors, marked by a favorable outcome
Thinkers-a person who has a well-developed faculty for thinking, as a philosopher, theorist, or scholar
***Steps to finding Your Voice: (In no particular order)
*Volunteer: Find someone or some non-profit or not-for-profit organization to pour your expertise into. Someone somewhere needs you!
(Marc Benioff, CEO of once said, “Strange as it sounds, the best advice I ever received wasn’t about how to make money-but how to give it away.”)
-examples of volunteering… Meals on Wheels while in college, Missions around the world, Boys and Girls Clubs, clean teams in trashy areas.
*Take some risk: “Great Love and Great Achievements involve Great Risk”. –plaque on my wall.
*Become a Mentor-a trusted advisor. Jesus mentored 12 men and changed the world!
*Find a Mentor. “Your success or failure may hinge on your ability to connect with the right Mentor.”
*Don’t take No for an answer. “It’s never based on how you feel it’s an act of the will”
*Learn to receive. You cannot truly be a giver until you are an experienced receiver. If you do not received gifts from others you actually hinder their blessing.
