When I first started my company, I was taught that “he who has the best Rolodex will have the greatest success”, in other words, it’s not what you know it’s who you know that will have the greatest impact on your success.
Last week I reconnected with one of my first and most impactful mentors. We discovered it had been 10 years since we last connected.
It is always humbling to me how the universe works, here is what happened…
I was attending a workshop and the presenter asked us to make a note about someone who was impactful in our life and why. Nancy came to mind. I wrote some thoughts down and smiled about the memories, there were many.
Five days later I received a text message from Nancy with a picture of the two of us when we were both much younger. She was going through some files and found the picture and chose to reach out.
We of course hopped on a call and began to bridge the 10 years of not connecting. In many ways, it was as if the 10-year break didn’t happen, and a lot of life had happened for both of us.
Who are the people in your life that have made a difference?
You know the ones that truly shift life for you at a core level. I believe those are the angels who are sent our way along life’s journey and when we are consciously ready to hear their message for us, that is when life can truly change. You know the saying – when the student is ready the teacher appears.
Gratitude for those times and people allows space for more of them to appear. During these times when life is challenging for so many for all different reasons, it’s good to stop and remember the gifts that we all receive along the way.
If there are areas of life where you are in question, ask the universe to send you a teacher! It could be someone you already know.
Thank you Nancy for choosing to reach out and reconnect!
