There are days that mark milestones in our lives and today is definitely one for me. I received an invitation from Mr Darcy Ogandaga of Tillionaire Media a couple of weeks ago for an interview in a series he's doing on Social Media Outreach. I was excited.
We were going to have this discussion on Google hangout, so first I had to get a webcam. That was breaking new grounds for me … imagine that in this world of technology, I have never set up a webcam of my own. Another step forward in the journey of life, right? Actually, my daughter is very happy about this new "development" because she now will get to speak with her cousins in Sweden, Finland and Cameroon via video. Milestones!!! … those little things in life that matter the most.
This morning Darcy and I got to talking. This was also a first of some sorts for me because I have never been one to do videos, although I speak infront of large audiences all the time. I told Darcy, he would always be remembered for pushing me out of my comfort zone on this one.
Personally, this interview impressed upon me the fact that when we go out and take a stance for others, the world notices. Darcy was not impressed by where I live, what car I drive or how much money I make. He was struck by the fact that DUNIA Magazine (of which I am the publisher) had organized a Walk for the Congo in Atlanta last month to show love for the women in Eastern DRC where war is used as a weapon of war. That in essence is what our discussion centered on.
I feel fulfilled, I feel really honored and blessed despite the challenges faced when we step out in faith. I continue to be extremely thankful for your support and encouragement. Life is more than making money, it is about making a difference in the lives of others especially the less fortunate.
I encourage you to embrace your talents, follow your dreams and live a purposeful life. If you do not know where to start, simply step out today and do something for someone in need; lend a helping hand and God will guide you forward.
Meanwhile, I would like to once more thank Mr Ogandaga for the opportunity.
I hope you feel inspired by our discussion.
