Ready, Aim, Captivate! brings together experts, entrepreneurs and authorities on how to take your individual message and use it to reach out to others, change lives and captivate hearts. They have started successful companies, written best-selling books and championed multimillion dollar events, but still—at their core—they are just like you. They were once someone in a bookstore reading the introduction to a book they hoped would teach them how to get where they wanted to go. They had to learn—some of them, the hard way—how to balance success at work while maintaining happiness at home. You are not alone.
Each of us has a message to share with the world. Some people were born with obvious gifts such as an ability to sing, dance, play an instrument or professional sport, or lead businesses, schools and churches to growth and success. Others have known since they were children that they wanted to be a firefighter, a cook, a teacher or nurse. You may be thinking, “But what about me? I’m just a regular person with a passion for something but I have no idea how to put it to work to help anyone.”
Sit down and be inspired by this collection of interviews. Listen to each con-tributor as they speak of their stories of hardship and frustration, and how they came to claiming a life that abounds in purpose and passion; a life that lets them share their incredible message with the world. Allow them to remind you that wherever you are right now is the perfect place to start moving toward the goal of a fulfilled life so that others can begin to be changed by your unique message.
Embark on a journey in the coming pages that will help you identify your gift, explore your talents and teach you to touch lives with your passion and your purpose. Allow them to show you what it takes to make your message magical.
Ready, Aim, Captivate! is a priceless resource. Such an amazing group of trusted professionals has come together in this book with one common purpose. Prepare to be captivated!
