Living Lite Today with Ron Lambros

One of the most powerful weapons known to man is not a bomb, not associated with germ or chemical warfare, it's not even a military device; and yet, it has the power to build up or destroy, to encourage or defeat, and to be used for good or evil. The weapon I'm taking about is the power of speech. Down through the ages, people everywhere, from every country, race, color, or creed, have been affected either positively or negatively by its strength, and it continues to affect us all today in one way or another. Great speeches have been known to motivate, encourage, educate, enlighten, and either draw us together or tear us apart. Speeches like Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, Franklin D. Roosevelt's “Fear Speech” to our nation on the verge of war, or Martin Luther King's “I Have a Dream” speech to a country torn by civil and racial unrest…each one inspired, motivated, and challenged the listener to look beyond personal benefit and interest and seek the greater good. But of all the speeches I've ever personally heard that moved me the most was by Jim Valvano, best known for his successful coaching career at North Carolina State University, where his team won the NCAA Division I Men's National Basketball Championship in 1983 against improbable odds over the Houston Cougars. I can still see him running across the basketball court when the buzzer-beating tap-in went in, hair and coattail flying, with his signature grin from ear-to-ear. And I vividly remember him delivering an incredibly moving and inspirational speech 10 years later at the 1993 ESPN ESPY Awards while terminally ill with cancer. He shared many things from his heart that night, but one of the most memorable was when Jim Valvano, lovingly known as Jimmy V., implored the audience to do 3 things every day of their life: laugh, think, and cry. He said if you do those three things, you have truly lived that day. He then went on to announce the formation of The V Foundation for Cancer Research, whose motto would be "Don't give up. Don't ever give up.” Sadly, he delivered his speech less than two months before his death from the bone cancer that he had valiantly fought. It was a speech for the ages and, if you haven't heard it, it's worth Googling and spending a few minutes being inspired to never give up in the face of insurmountable or impossible odds. Simply put, we all need to have hope. And that's what I want to talk about on today's podcast. We need to be reminded that we possess the spiritual power and resources to overcome any hardship, any challenge, and any obstacle that is put in our path, attempting to prevent us from experiencing the abundant life that God wants us to have. Stay with me as we look at God's Word, and even echo the words of Jim Valvano, and learn together to: Never Give Up! That's coming up on this episode of Living Lite Today.

On today's episode we're joined by Monique Porras. She's a recruiting industry professional who recently began her own small business, The Kempington Group. She still considers herself east coast, but moved to Phoenix about five years ago without knowing anyone. She came for the weather. Knowing she'd have to build her network. She wanted to change the game of recruiting to humanize the process again. While they sit in Phoenix, half her business is now outside of Arizona. Like many other organizations, they've been hit by the pandemic. Monique says it's important to be positive and be mindful to focus on ourselves and what we're able to change. The chaos that's happening around has inspired her to be more aware of herself. She also encourages listeners to tell their story, she practices this herself by telling the story of her candidates to potential employers. Sharing candidates that way gave them a different response from organizations so she's applied it to other areas. Next, Shawn and Monique talk about resumes. She explains that while there were a lot of rules to resumes in the past, she thinks there is more room these days to be creative, stressing that the focus should be impacts. Monique also says the story is in the cover letter and that's a place to really show your personality and drive. Organizations are reflecting on the caliber of people they have, so job seekers need to be doing self improvement as well. Through all your storytelling and job seeking, being authentic and humble gets you farther than others who may have more accomplishments or skills, but do not bring those intangibles to the table. One way Monique seeks to better herself is through paying it forward and envisioning her ideal self. As the episode ends, Monique shares that she has been picked to collaborate with ESPN's The V Foundation. Don't forget to like, share, and subscribe!
