I would be hard-pressed to single out one person who changed my life. Maybe I was blessed because I was surrounded by positive, life-changing family members and friends who continually encouraged me in my career.
That is not to say that I didn’t encounter negative people and experience frustrating roadblocks in the course of my life. I did. Boy, did I ever!
However, the positive influences outweighed the negative – and I made sure the former was never obliterated or superseded by the latter.
That being said, CNN is devoting a two – hour special PROGRAM focusing on that one special mentor who influenced many of its top news anchors. The show will air on Sunday, Januaru 24th at 8:00 PM.
I have watched some of the preview segments this week on CNN and I have to say I was surprised with some of the selected mentors. One always expects teachers and family members to be singled out but , in some cases, that one special person in these journalists’ lives was not what one would expect. It was fascinating. Truly fascinating.
And, it made me realize that everything we say and do can have a profound effect on someone we least expect. So, we better get it right and live our lives with passion and enthusiasm. One never knows whose life will change as a result of our actions.
How about you? Did someone in your life help you realize your dreams or change your life for the better? Please share in the comments section.
