This title was in a 1966 farce musical comedy film, based on the stage musical of the same name.
I like to use this title to describe life.
How many times have you been focused on doing a job or career or marriage or life, only to look back and see the Funny things that transpire from your journey.
This is my story about discovering my love for my radio show. I had gone to interview a publicist, but while there she actually suggested after our visit to think about being on the radio.
Since I had been married to a Television broadcast owner for 28 years, I just couldn’t connect with the idea. Some people would call that brainwashing!! The benefits of the two markets are common but have a much different listening impact.
Local radio is still a good medium and podcasts have really hit it big time for our mobile internet world.
My first experience on the radio was a quick 3 minute discussion of my upcoming workshop. BOY!! It is hard to describe the unbelievable discomfort I went through – nerves, fear, and self-doubt all happening on the inside of my body as the outside of my body and voice was shaking, inside and out!!
Long story short, Pam did put me on a radio show. It was a live weekly talk show as a regular guest. Then in a few months, she had me hosting my own 30-minute talk show on local radio Saturday mornings.
My point is this: Life is full of twists and turns on the way to life!! And many times those twists and turns are really leading to your talents and soon to be passions. But, if we are too quick to say “no”, we will miss the glory.
You must remember these things:
Change is good
Be Open to the new
STOP saying “NO” to life
Enjoy the journey
And then one day you will look back and say, “You know, a funny thing happened on the way to the Forum (Life)”.
Look for the 2017 release of my book, Effortless Happiness – How to find Your Voice and Finally Ask for What You Really Want.
