Live Inspired Vlog #77: Meet Them at Their ‘Why’

Vlog #77

I’m often asked how a guy with no fingers learned to write, and it’s a question that I answer in my book ON FIRE. You may be familiar with the story.

Though my parents, teachers, and siblings had been trying to encourage me for months following the fire to learn to write again, it was Cardinals Hall of Fame announcer Jack Buck that finally found the way to make it happen- by understanding what would motivate me as a nine-year-old boy.

He thought about my ‘why’ rather than his own.

My friends, we have the amazing ability to profoundly impact the lives of others…if we’re willing to meet them where they are. The same way that Jack did for me.

Watch today’s vlog and after you do, I challenge you to think about how you can elevate others by meeting them at their ‘why.’ It just may help to elevate you as well.

Today is your day. Live Inspired.
