You Are God's Best Idea! Daily Epigram for: January 10, 2012
"Security is in the uncertainty just as the discovery is in the
exploration. To Uncertainty and Beyond!"-Douglas Holzmeier
I feel it is important to front load the first month of these life lessons with instruction and inspiration that will shift you internally in order to move you externally. There is a human inclination to see successful people as having something extra you lack. You see a superstar and mumble something along the lines of, “Well of course they are at the top – they are naturally (fill in the blank) talented; beautiful; handsome; intelligent; charismatic; etc “– as if this was always so.
All of us have been blessed with a variety of talents – how much we develop and exercise our inherent genius is up to us. You probably know John Tesh – the nationally syndicated radio show host. John was a successful sportscaster for CBS in the early1980s and was a host for Entertainment Tonight from 1986 to 1996. If that wasn’t enough – John wrote the instantly recognizable anthem for the NBA on NBC along with several other TV sports themes.
In the late 1980s John asked Yanni if he could play some shows with him. Although he only performed 12 concerts – Tesh caught the performing bug and started recording his own music shortly thereafter. In the mid-1990s - John scored several hit songs on Adult Contemporary (Lite Rock) radio including a duet with James Ingram – “Give Me Forever (I Do)”. Because John wasn’t spiritually satisfied with the degree of fame and fortune that came with being a national network television anchor and personality; John Tesh gave us his inspirational music and – more.
I have spoken to John on the phone and met him in person. He is a man of great faith. The thing is – sharing your faith is not encouraged while covering the Tour de France; the Olympics or reporting on Jennifer Anniston’s love life. John wanted to serve people and help them live the best possible life. It is interesting that John was at a competing Nashville TV station at the time another budding young superstar-to-be was sharpening her chops before changing the world – Oprah Winfrey.
In 2003, John Tesh entered my world of broadcast radio. The John Tesh “Intelligence for Your Life” Radio Show has been on the air for almost a decade on over 400 radio stations – that’s 14.2 million listeners a week! You can literally feel your IQ rise while listening to the show – as well as your consciousness. Although it is done with a soft touch – John Tesh’s love for his fellow man comes through as strongly as his famous baritone voice.
John has never rested on his laurels. He has taken risks and gone beyond traditional bonds and bounds. He has won 6 Emmys; 4 gold albums; 2 Grammy nominations; and an Associated Press award for investigative journalism. He’s sold over 8 million records and his live concerts have raised over 20 Million Dollars for PBS. He is a favorite guest among the late night television shows and - Oh yeah – he’s married to Connie Sellecca!
Like John Tesh decided - whatever you have done up to now does not necessarily have to define what you are ever going to do – what to do next – or next year. You can build on your past accomplishments or you can do something wholly new and unrelated. What is most important is that it is a strong and divine desire and one – if brought to fruition – will serve and inspire others while it brings you great Joy – from within!
Security comes from going beyond certainty – where all the divine ideas await your exploration and discovery.
