I recently came back from teaching The Quest For Inspiration at the Rancho La Puerta spa in Mexico. I realize that being transparent and authentic is where the magic happens. Just walking into a room and being utterly yourself is harder than playing a role. When I teach this workshop in the corporate world, I try to gently get my students out of their comfort zone. I believe the only time you really learn anything is when you are sitting a little bit “at the edge of your seat” wondering what will happen next.
I found this letter buried in my garage. It was written by Jack Keller in NH. He was my business advisor back in the early 1990’s as I just started McGuirk’s Quirks Design Company. He believed in me so much. He gave me so much encouragement during a time when I bravely started to make a living as an artist. If it wasn’t for him, I probably would have given up. I love what he wrote in this letter. Wise words to always remember.
