Ralph Waldo Emerson: Self Reliance Prompt #8

Your Personal Message by Eric Handler

To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, that is genius. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

What is burning deep inside of you? If you could spread your personal message RIGHT NOW to 1 million people, what would you say?

Burning deep down

These prompts never get easier, do they? Something that is burning deep inside me is the desire to move forward professionally and live up to my fullest potential. A problem I face is knowing which direction to take. I love what I do, but feel the time for moving up is fast approaching.

Give me a chance!

A great fear of mine is that I will not be taken seriously in the business world because my experience is mostly in retail management. It sounds like a lame excuse, but its not. I have never been afraid to put myself out there in an uncomfortable place. However, it would help if the door was halfway open for me to run through and broadcast my message. I have a lot to offer, care deeply, and want to make a difference. (There, I said it! Now for some results.)

    Good job and you responded to the prompts effectively…
    Sometimes, I take off on my own tangents and leave the questions behind. LOL!
    The prompts are quite pithy and I hope we can all keep up. 🙂
