THE POWER OF ENGAGEMENT HOW TO FIND BALANCE IN WORK AND LIFE
by J. Ibeh Agbayim MSc
When you position yourself to expect the unexpected, you turn those things into an opportunity for growth. Many people who achieved greatness failed several times in their businesses, careers, and so before attaining such success …
In 1987, the NEW YORK TIMES published Harold Krents’s obituary, including his achievements. Harold Krents wass told by his doctor at the age of nine that he would become totally blind. Krents knew at an early age that he needed to “grow up or fold up, to be dependent or independent.” Krents was able to muster courage, and engaged himself into graduating from Harvard Law School and University College of Oxford University. Krents was a White House Fellow in 1980. He was a member of the President’s Committee on Employment of the Handicapped, and he had a whole host of other positions. Based on Krent’s professional and family records, he expected the unexpected when he turned what was meant to be a barrier into a strength, what was meant to be a handicap into an ocean of opportunities. He simply saw what others could not see (vision, courage, etc.). If we can see opportunity in every difficulty, we can allow the power of engagement to manifest in every situation.
