The Honorable Cory A. Booker was our next speaker. He was more of an inspirational speaker than a leadership summit speaker, but he was great to listen to. I loved listening to his story and how he has such devotion to the town he is the mayor of, Newark, NJ. The positive work he has done in NJ is incredible and he was truly inspiring. If you don’t know him, Google him.
Here are two things he said that stuck with me:
- You can either let life be what it is, or infuse life with your truth (that truth being the truth of Jesus Christ).
- You can accept circumstances the way they are, or you can commit to changing them.
Now, neither of these were earth shattering or made me walk way feeling like I had an “ah ha” moment, but he truly was a great speaker and fun to listen to.
