It comes in many forms. Sadly I have to say that in my life time, I have experienced this more than I would of ever liked too, in many different ways. From race, to being a woman, to not fitting someones mental ideal, to being over qualified; I have experienced this. Yet I know at least in the Business world smart men or women see beyond race and hire people just like me; who are intelligent and can truly changed their business FOREVER. Usually people get caught up in power, money or their negative internal dialogue that they can’t see new opportunities at their door. I know the people who reject me for racist reasons are really in a fight with themselves.
Like many, I have had many doors shut, for the dumbest reasons; usually out of another persons ego. I don’t get mad anymore, I just go work for the COMPETITION, my success will be my LEGACY. I know God didn’t send me here to just sit in the sidelines and I know those who are truly connected to the divine will know that. When I worked for Wal-Mart years ago Pepsi recruited me, when I worked for Pepsi, Frito-Lay recruited me and when I worked in the Education sector, thats how I was able to help one University and others in just a few years. So even though this may not apply in all fields; I know the possibly of doing great things exists.
For all my Angels out there looking to make a difference in the world, I always encourage every man or woman to choose a field where you can make a difference in; whatever that is for you. Science, Environmental, Green Peace, related to the planet, Forest, Medical; there are many fields that still need YOUR help; which will you choose? Life isn’t always about money, yes we need it to live. It is about purpose. I know some professional areas seem to be more impacted than others, so do your research for what field makes sense for you.
Also I have never regretted all the Education I have learned, taken and paid for. Because you see I have earned that education and NO one, can take that from me.
I recently went to the Dalai Lama events in Socal and saw over 150 protestors at UCI. Who protests peace and compassion? Obviously they have another religious agenda, that was clear. One asian woman bowed and gave me her protest brochure, I obviously didn’t take it and shared a message with her. Like many she is just blindly following her religion without fully thinking it through herself. You have a voice, use it for GOOD!!
I also recently heard that some people sued UCI to have the American Flag on the UCI campus removed, all I have to say to those people is, if you don’t like it you should find another country to live in because that Flag represents this country whether you like it or not. We can’t go to England, China, India , Iran or any other country and tell them to take down their flag, can we??
And may I add its not our job to tell people who to love even if we don’t understand it. So we should have compassion towards them and the Oregon couple who lost everything because their personal business didn’t make a cake for a gay couple.
