On Saturday, October 8th, 2016, I gave a talk at GlenX Success Summit 2016 on the power of networking and how we can discover and fulfill our dreams through networking.
Thanks to the media team, you can view my presentation online here. My talk begins at 59:00 mark.
PS: Make sure to listen to amazing talk by Jim Calaway, about his donations to Colorado Mountain College and 16 other non-profit organizations as well as about the four big hits (i.e. successes) Jim had to have incredible success in business before becoming a major philanthropist. Talk about Jim Calaway and his talk begins at 1:28 mark.
This morning, I received a very unfortunate news about a dear friend who has recently passed away. I share this news with you because there is something really amazing about him. Even after he passed away, he still loves others and he still gives others. He gave away his organs so that others could live. He has created a fund at his church to help continue his efforts in Mongolia. This is really truly remarkable.
I am little bit surprised to hear the news because he was a healthy and energetic person. He went back to US to be with family, I was told. It is entirely possible that he wasn’t feeling well and/or even knew that his time was limited. He really wanted to help others, and you could see it in his eyes and in the way he gave his attention and time.
I am very happy to have met someone so wonderful. Religious differences aside, I know his spirit and/or energy will continue on, and that is a very good thing. I truly wish him and his family, friends, and loved ones the best.
Below is his obituary that I received via email today. Let’s all pray for him and his loved ones. Let’s also pray that all of us will develop the compassion, love, and understanding for each other in the way that George loved us.
You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.
It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went.
I know that I lived them all…
And I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams… But, here it is.. the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise… How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my youth go?

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 yr old son picked up stone and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the child’s hand and hit it many times; not realizing he was using a wrench.
At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures.
When the child saw his father…..with painful eyes he asked, ‘Dad when will my fingers grow back?’ The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times.
Devastated by his own actions…….sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written ‘LOVE YOU DAD’.
The next day that man committed suicide. . .
Anger and Love have no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life…..
Things are to be used and people are to be loved, But the problem in today’s world is that, People are used and things are loved…
During this year, let’s be careful to keep this thought in mind: Things are to be used, but People are to be loved … Be yourself….This is the only day we HAVE. Have a nice day!
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits they become character;
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
