Preaching to the Choir

    Posted in Corporate Speaking    |    Comments Off on Preaching to the Choir

This past Friday, I was given the opportunity to speak to WorkReady, Inc. WorkReady helps people with special needs find jobs that would not only be suitable for them, but where the company doing the hiring is also willing to make adaptations as needed.  As I learned more about them, I became very impressed with them and their mission.  I applaud there efforts and told them so on Friday.

A part of me felt like I was “preaching to the choir,” so to speak.  These employees work day in and day out helping people to use what they have instead of wishing their situation to be different.  That’s one of my points when I speak.  We can all sit around and wait for our circumstances to get better, or we can choose to use what we have to live life to the fullest.  No reason or circumstance can keep me from living a full and happy life…not even a lack of arms.

I appreciate WorkReady, Inc. and other companies who are helping people to live better lives.
