Topic: Every single one of us was created to flourish
My guest today says, “Every single one of us was created to flourish. Each of us has a special purpose and was born with the gifts and skills we need to fulfil it.”
Joining me today is Fiona Burke.
Fiona is a wife and mother with a special place in her heart for the youth of my country. She is the Founder & Executive Director of Flourish, a mentorship program for teenage girls. Fiona is also a teacher, speaker and event MC who loves Jesus and tries to point others to the abundant life he offers.
On today’s show Fiona is going to share:
- Bona fide success and true fulfilment come from helping and being of service to others in some way, rather than focusing solely on achieving our own ambitions.
- Maintaining the right balance is important. Nurturing our personal relationships is just as, if not more important than, paying attention to our careers or ministries.
- I don’t think any other brand has ever gotten it as right at Nike: JUST DO IT. No amount of thinking about it or even planning and strategizing will get it done. Take the first step and everything will begin to fall into place step by step, little by little.
