Talking on the radio everyday doesn’t bother me at all. Talking in front of a group of people is a different story. And that’s what I did on Friday afternoon. A friend asked me to come speak to students at William Travis school. When I arrived, my friend went to find out what class I would be speaking in front of. She returned to tell me news that I wasn’t prepared to hear. She said, “You’ll be speaking in the auditorium.” I was like, “Excuse me? The Auditorium, Auditorium?”
I couldn’t let her see that she rattled me a little. So, I followed her to the Auditorium. Fortunately, It wasn’t a full room. Maybe 50-60 students. I worked the room as best I could. Yes, I rambled a little but I tried to explain how you should make the best out of any circumstance. Specifically, out of any job you find yourself working. Make the best of it. I told the story of how we all will have crappy jobs along the way. But, we should always try to make the best out of it. I did mention the fact that I was once a “Traffic counter” and my job was to sit on the side of the road and count cars. And I tried my best to be the BEST Car Counter EVER. But, I was eventually replaced by a rubber hose.
That got a few laughs. So, at the end of the day, I didn’t fail. I wasn’t great by any means but I got through it. I made the BEST out of the situation!
