149 – What Matters Most…a life changing story



Every Wednesday I regal you with a story from somewhere in my unusual and interesting life.  It could be funny, sad, serious or disturbing, the important thing is that every story has a lesson.  The name of today’s story is; What Matters Most.

Even though these are my stories, you can apply these lessons to your own life, or perhaps they will remind you of your own similar story and the lessons you learned from it.  Either way, you should be entertained.

As you listen I really want you to consider your own stories, when did you learn these lessons?  Can you remember?  Sometimes digging up your own past can have great benefit, especially if you are made to remember that one singular moment in time when you learned something vital.  It’s almost like learning it all over again. That…is the purpose of these stories.

In fact, I think there is nothing quite so human as the hearing and telling of stories.  It’s how our ancestors conveyed critical information from one generation to the next.  The stories told around campfires the world over are what eventually shaped our species into what it is today.

Today’s story, called  What Matters Most, is about a terrifying time when I almost lost everything.  It served to set some priorities in my life that have served me well ever since.  I think there is something here for everyone to learn.  I would love to hear your thoughts on this, or hear your own experiences when you learned these lessons..
