I had the extreme honor of meeting best-selling author, thought leader/humanitarian, my virtual mentor and new friend, Mark Joyner, in person for the first time at a conference in Atlanta, GA this past December (’09).
Its funny how deeply others can affect you so just by their LIFE, commitment to their own passions and service the world. Meeting and talking to Mark impacted me deeply and reminds of me of one of my favorite quotes:
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And, as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
What he does through his company, ContrustZero.org, is amazing and what impresses me equally is the personal benefits and use value I’ve gained from his Simpleology teachings, free tools and some of his books (e.g Integration Marketing and Rise of the Author).
If you are unfamiliar with Mark, visit ContrustZero.org and check out what he’s doing. You can even sign up for the free Simpleology 101 course that served as my introduction to a whole new way of getting things accomplished.
I’ll have other news regarding this meeting in the near future and its a challenge to keep it on the “down low!”
