At a very early age I became quite interested in the television industry. In 1970 I had the opportunity to begin learning the inner workings of broadcasting. I continued my studies in Education and furthered myself through Educational Technologies to produce educational videos.
I was fortunate to graduate and begin my career with Public Broadcasting, gaining experience in educational videos and documentaries. After many years, I moved into an engineering position in commercial television and after several decades, working in every department associated with broadcasting, TV had become a major part of my life.
In that industry, like many others, the change of the “business” frustrated me and no longer was “fun” for me. However, it was so much a part of me, I could not leave. I tried to move on to a new career but it was like tearing my heart out, causing me much inner pain. I tried to resign and instead, they offered me a 50% increase of pay; an offer I could not refuse. I committed myself for another 5 years, which was hard because nothing had really changed and the money did not help my feelings.
Then one day, I received a letter; a letter so direct and true. But because I worked for a TV News Station, I had to research this and found that the company contacting me didn’t have rosy reviews on the internet. I realized and became aware that what I was reading was written by individuals that had nothing better to do than to tear something down for which they had no inside knowledge.
I responded to the appeal to purchase these heirlooms; absorbing the writings contained in the pages and colleagues stood up and noticed something had changed in my life. I set out to prepare myself to “break free” and start my own business because, of the literature I had received. I became more focused and ascended to become a premiere employee. Once I achieved that goal, I handed in my resignation with strength and courage to move on creating my own new life.
I was so admired by my fellow workers; I was happier than they even realized. They even threw me a great going away party that they rarely, if ever, had done. All of this occurred because my mind had been cleared of the “clutter” placed there over the years. I was able to think more clearly because my brain was not “miss-firing” anymore, because a foundation of knowledge had been gained. I would not have survived this world without hope, if not for new thinking brought on by the authors of those books.
