Bruce and his back story

I enjoy reading biographies and autobiographies. This week I am reading Bruce Springsteen’s self-told story “Born to Run.” So far I am on page 211 of 508.

He is a rock-n-roll singer and leader of his band. You likely have heard of him; he’s considered to be “famous.”

What I didn’t know was what he endured to follow his musical vision.

Fingers sore from his first guitar. Band members stealing or hiding from the law. Moving back in with his parents in his 20’s.

Simultaneously exhilarated and fearful as he recorded his first record… was he a “good enough” musician to gain a following? Or was this a futile attempt?

Each of us has a back-story, a history of experiences that led us to where we are today.

But only the present moment shows in the public eye.

Your rank, your residual check, your fame are all products of your past. Remember to honor the lessons learned in the journey that brought you to this day.

And take another step tomorrow.

I believe in you.

Let the music carry you

At this moment one of my colleagues is sitting in a hospital waiting room while her mom is in surgery for the 3rd time this year. And to uplift her spirits, the younger woman is listening to music.

But not just favorite songs from the radio.

Instead, her ears are filled with the uplifting songs written by our CEO. Songs that have been unveiled and performed live at several company conventions, each one matching and expanding on a convention theme.

Your CEO may not have written tunes or raps, but I’m willing to bet you have several songs that are traditionally heard at your events.

When you feel frustrated or exasperated, play one of those. Let it take you back to the joyous celebration that your convention provides.

And let it spur you to greatness.
