Focus on strengths – Tues 3/15

Here is the Nelson Mandela speech that I read on the show:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

The health of Steve Jobs may be extremely critical to Apple’s monetary worth, a new Barron’s report claims. Compiling its annual 30 Most Respected CEOs list, on which Jobs is present, the publication notes that stock value dropped when word came out of the CEO’s medical problems; the executive was forced to take a six-month leave of absence during 2009. Particularly considering that Apple’s market value recently topped $200 billion, Jobs’ life is estimated by Barron’s to be worth about $25 billion.”
