It is true that whoever comes is the right people.
You might disagree (and that’s OK), but WHY are you HERE NOW instead of somewhere else with different people?
Who invited you?
What was the theme of the invitation?
What about that invitation compelled you to reserve the time to show up?
Whether or not you “like” these people, what can you learn from them?
What can you contribute to the discussion/cause that will make a difference?
What happens if you feel “these people” aren’t like you, but you stay anyway out of curiosity?
Welcome diversity of culture, experience, background, ideas, perspectives, personalities, egos.
Own your own responsibility for being here . . . now engage.
If, after all of this, you find yourself neither contributing and/or receiving anything of value (You are physically here but not present), then know that you have permission to use your 2 feet to take yourself to another place where you CAN contribute and/or receive value.
Bottom line . . . It is YOUR responsibility to decide to be useful . . . Don’t let anyone else define you
Theme – Invitation –
The right People come (Because they have passion for the theme)
Right Place – Right Time
Whatever happens is the only thing that could have . . .
When it’s Over – It’s OVER
Show up and be present . . .
Follow what has heart and meaning for YOU
Tell the truth (without judgement) to yourself and others
Let it go . . .
