Go for it!

1/7/2009   Comment on This

Dan Ponce, who is a great reporter, has resigned from Channel 7 WLS-TV. I bring this to your attention because Dan is going for his passion. He is a singer and will be pursuing this full time. His last day on the air is January 16th. His father is with Channel 11 WTTW and his brother is with Channel 5, which is an NBC-TV affiliate.

Do you think he heard, "Are you crazy to give up your Channel 7 gig?!" (which by the way is first place in Chicago with news). I guarantee you he did. There is no way Dan won't succeed--he will be doing what he loves full time.

It is IMPOSSIBLE to not be good at something you love. When I started this radio gig a couple of years ago, not too many people took me seriously. Two-and-a-half years later, I have a full-time gig on AM 560 WIND.

You hear people saying all the time that you should go for your passion. Are you going for yours? Are you in a job just for the money? Do you hate your job and/or your boss? As Dr. Phil would say, "How's that working for you?" Sad to say, many people hate what they're doing and don't know what to do with their life. There are many more who know what they want to do but live in a prison within their mind each and every day.

My only advice is to do what you love and you won't have an unhappy day. There will be unhappy moments, but at the end of the day when you put your head on your pillow, you will have a great feeling of accomplishment. I wish Dan Ponce all the success in the world. I wish you, my blog buddies, to take a chapter out of Dan's book and GO FOR IT!!! I will see you on the radio.

Have you heard my new overnight show? Tell me what you think.
