IT’S YOUR LIFE. HOW TO PREVENT OTHERS FROM IMPACTING YOUR PURPOSE

Angela Cain Motivational, Passions & Purpose, Posts Leave a Comment

Be honest. Has someone else’s action or opinion of you ever stolen your joy? Has it weighed you down and caused you to doubt yourself…keeping you from moving forward… impacting your life purpose and goals? I was blessed to share thousands of people’s stories, and interview countless experts about some of the issues that matter most in our lives, as a television news anchor/journalist for more than 30 years. But that did not inoculate me from experiencing my own ups and downs, the pains and sorrows of life, including rejection from others or criticism that gave me doubts about my own purpose, personally and professionally. So, as part of my new chapter as an entrepreneur, I blog about “what matters most” in life – topics …

5 Ways to Adjust During Career Change Without Fear: What Matters Most

Angela Cain Careers, Motivational, Posts 2 Comments

There is a lesson I learned long ago in life. It’s something that I didn’t take to heart when I was younger – unblemished by the hard knocks, losses, and struggles that often fill our life landscape, the longer we live.

Daniel Rodriguez, the “9/11 Singing Policeman,” has a voice that helped “heal a nation” after September 11, 2001. A New York police officer, at the time, he stoked our national pride. His stirring performances of “God Bless America” at several memorial events and on television touched millions of people. So in the wake of that horror, he proved that patriotism was not buried beneath the ashes of the World Trade Center. A LIFE LESSON FROM A TWO-TIME SURVIVOR Daniel Rodriguez was …

How to Live Dr. Martin Luther King’s Words Every Day

The words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. are perhaps more profound today than any other time in recent history. I believe that they are a light to guide us, words that are not just there for us to repeat, as we celebrate the Dr. King holiday, but words to live by – every day. Think of how it could change the world, if we placed some of Dr. King’s most famous quotes in a place where we could see them, as we head out to work each morning. At lunch, when we’re on a break. Before we go to bed at night. Millions of Americans spend a lot of time on their cell phones and social media pages every day. Why not save Dr. …
