The Right People Are in The Room
The Influencer Community’s conference was in two weeks. And I was worried that ticket sales were not where I wanted them to be. I wanted a big turnout because I had a great keynote speaker and four other bonus speakers. I had planned for some virtual goodies, taking time to curate special giveaways, even selecting color coordinated mailing envelopes that would make a great presentation as ticket holders opened their mailboxes.
I called Mardi Humphreys, the keynoter to touch base and she asked the question I was dreading, “how are ticket sales?” I humbly replied that the numbers were low, and I was hopeful that we would get some more participants in the next week. And then Mardi said the words I needed to hear; she said, “the right people will be in the room.”
How many times in my life had I worried about this exact same thing?
Like the time I was applying for my dream job. I was asked to do a presentation at the interview. The presentation did notworry me, but the interview panel did. What if the panel was unimpressed? What if they did not like me? What if, what if, what if. But what I should have realized was that the right people would be in the interview. Not only did I pull off a fantastic interview and presentation, but I also ultimately got the job because the right person was in the room-the director of the department I was interviewing for. He saw me, he heard me, he believed in me, and he hired me.
There are so many opportunities that we give up on, when if we complete the process with our determination and head held high the right people will be in the room and see us for who we are!
So how about you?
Think about the times in your life when you have worried about not being heard or valued and then, BAM, you got a promotion or a better job because the right person was in the room.
The right people are placed in our paths all the time!
Do you think of yourself as the right person for others? When have you encouraged or helped someone? When have you given solid advice or wisdom? Being that right person makes you feel great because you have done your part for someone who really needed you!
So, remember this, the right person will inevitably be in your sphere. You just must believe in the process, do your absolute best and trust that the right person is right there with you!
