Today, I had the fortune of meeting a post office worker in my home town, while on my Make Money Monday Tour.
We sat down for a bit, over a coffee, and I found out that he had a love of music so BIG – that he in fact has over 10,000 Rock CD’s in his library. Not only that, he searches blogs for 3 – 4 hours at night to find out about music that other “experts” have commented on, that are not currently part of his collection.
When I asked what his perfect life would look like, (he’s ready to retire soon) he sat for about 5 minutes not really sure. But he did say one thing. He loved music.
What proceeded next was magical. As I looked in his eyes and told him that HE was the expert — and that he could comment, recommend, and share his knowledge about music to others who didn’t have his passion – he was speechless. He could have a blog (we came up with a perfect name, sorry can’t share that yet) and it was available. More into the conversation, he mentioned
wanting to help those with cancer, and that was important to him. We talked about having an event utilizing Rock Music (from the Beatles, to today) with funds to benefit the Cure for Cancer.
This lovely man who has served my community for years, delivering mail in the rain, snow and shine is an expert, with such a gift, that he was himself, in awe.
He never thought of himself in that way. No one ever told him such a thing. Do we ever know what gifts we have?
This moment made my day. So today’s tip is quite simple. That deep down passion you have is real. Make a decision to do something with it. Your life will never be the same.
