POWERFUL: Carly Fiorina on God and Leadership
Not that we want to blow our own horn, but toot toot.
So here's the next Carly Fiorina video everyone is going to be talking about:
When I was 8 years old my mother was my Sunday school teacher and my mother gave me a plaque that said, "What you are is God's gift to you; what you make of yourself is your gift to God." I did not feel gifted. I went to work out of college as a secretary and the business owners came to me and asked if I wanted to learn about the company. They saw possibilities in me that I didn't see in myself. I later became the head of Hewlett-Packard and now serve on the board of organizations that help give a hand up to those who need . I have seen the look in a child's eyes when they get a brand new backpack full of stuff because it isn't 'stuff' to them. I've had triumphs and tragedies in my life and I always knew I was not alone. I've learned a few basic things--
- leadership is the same no matter what the context is
- everyone has potential and more potential than most of us realize--human potential is the only limitless resource we have in this world. Why do so many fail to reach their potential? Some don't have a chance because of subjugation or lack of tools or opportunity or because they lost faith in themselves, others, or God.
Soon to be seen on every conservative blog a month from now!
Exit quote from Monica Crowley (who will be on the show this Friday): It’s not just because she speaks in measured, almost soft, tones. It’s because she projects an extraordinary calming presence, even when discussing the most dangerous threats and vexing problems facing America today.
