Does this quote resonate with you as loudly as it resonates with me? I think it is hard-wired into my DNA. I believe it so much that sometimes I’ve assumed it was self-evident to everyone around me. So, if someone had a title and they were not using their power to serve others I judged them harshly. (Not something I am proud of, but it’s true.)
Eventually, I had a powerful head smacking moment (visualizing the old V8 ads) and realized:
“Ms. Gegelman gave an excellent presentation and has impacted my life in a very powerful and positive way.”
