Who Made a Difference in Your Life?string(35) "Who Made a Difference in Your Life?"
Last week, I posted a video of me accepting an award at Citrus College (click here to view that video and the accompanying blog post), a community college in Southern California, and in the video I mention that one of the best professors I ever had throughout my ten-year college education was one of my professors at Citrus College.
In the video above, I talk about this particular professor, Dr. Shirey, and I explain why and how he impacted my life in a positive way.
I think it’s really important to recognize the people who have made a difference in our lives and acknowledge and understand what it is that they did (or do) that has positively impacted us because it can sometimes help us gain clarity about ourselves as individuals when it comes to the focus of our values and ambitions.
Robert Louis Stevenson said, “Everyone who got where he is has had to begin where he was.” I firmly believe that the teachers, educators, mentors, and other stand-out people who make a difference in our lives play a huge part in helping us to get from where we began to where we want to go and if there is someone who impacted you in a way that helped you get where you are today, share your story/stories in the comments section and give a shout out to those who’ve helped you!
