Here is another excerpt from my autobiography, Another Day Without A Cage: My Breakthrough From Self-Imprisonment To Total Empowerment on taking a chance and reaching for your goals. Enjoy!
Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of being on television. So when I had the chance to speak with representatives of a television show, I jumped at the opportunity. Initially my goal was to convince them to hire me as a speaker for their organization. But as I listened to their plans and needs, I learned that they were looking for new on-air hosts.
Without thinking twice, I took the chance and blurted out, “What about me?”
As the words left my mouth, they almost sounded ridiculous. I had never spoken in front of a television camera. I had no idea how a television studio was managed. Regardless of my lack of experience, though, I had to speak up, and I’m glad I did.
I didn’t get the job right away. It took persistence, energy and hard work to land my first job as host of a TV show several months later, but taking a chance and saying those three magic words, what about me, made all the difference. My advice to you is this: don’t be afraid to take that chance. What have you got to lose? Not much. But you have so much to gain.
