Peace and Possibilities

Aug 31, 2022

My guest this week (and my 135th guest), is the energetic, sweet, and funny Oscar Garcia. Oh, and he’s very inspirational as well.  You’ll see what I mean right away.


I love his energy. He comes from a big family and had to work his way up, every step of the way.  Sound familiar?


He assures us that crap can be, and is, fertilizer.  You'll have to listen in to see what he means.


Oscar recommends, if we want to shake it up, achieve more, get more satisfaction, that we may need to change our sphere of influence. What is that? The people who are influencing you regularly.


Surround yourself with better people who are making you think and grow.  People who challenge you to do better will help you become better.


And he encourages us to taste opportunity now.  Right now.


Just try.


Like Oscar explained, and if you're a really good parent or mentor, you've said it a thousand times, you don't know until you try,


Try something different. Try something new, try a new question or conversation.  You could be pleasantly surprised.  You will more than likely, be pleasantly surprised.


So get out there and try. As the famous quote from the movie Shawshank Redemption goes: "Get busy living, or get busy dying".


I wish I said that!
