Tell The People Who Changed You That They Changed You

“You were with me at a turning point in my life.”⁣

That’s what I said to him, a former mentor, who I hadn’t spoken to in almost a year about the time I worked for him while I was going through the lowest point of my mental health and confidence.⁣

He was the one that slid a business card across the desk after I burst into tears in his office and said, “I can’t help you, but this counsellor can.”⁣

Last week, I thanked him for how he changed me. I let him know that day was a turning point that set me up to do the work I do with the women I serve and the people far and beyond who hear my message. It was the start of what has makes my work fulfilling and results-producing.⁣

That one day with that one gesture set my new course in action and I let him know that I marked it by putting it in my book.⁣

There was an emotionally charged pause on the other end of the phone that was broken by a voice that came through a lump in his throat. He forced out, “Michele, I appreciate you telling me this.”⁣

I know I create turning points for my people now because of that experience he gave me. I’m proud of that. ⁣

Bottom line, tell the people who changed you that they changed you. Everyone wants (and needs) to know they made a difference. Your generosity of heart and spirit will lift theirs and that will make anything flourish for both of you. ⁣

Who’s committed to reaching out to that person today? Hands up! 🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏾‍♀️🙋‍♀️
