Sharing My Credo

Art FettigYesterday I was listening to an audio tape of a talk I gave in Las Vegas in 1993. As an aside to the audience as I was about to recite my Self Esteem Credo I mentioned that I had recently talked to Herb True, a Notre Dame professor, and he said a janitor there had informed him that he found this verse of mine stuck on the bathroom mirrors in thirty some rooms of the students.  He asked Herb for a copy. He wanted to send it to a nephew in college. I had given copies to students in Herb's class when I spoke there a week before. Here is the Credo. You might want to share it with someone you love. I have removed the copyright notice so feel free to share it.

The Self Esteem Credo 
by Art Fettig 

God made me – I was no accident, 
No happenstance. I was in God’s plan 
And He doesn’t make junk, ever. 
I was born to be a successful human being. 
I am somebody special, unique, 
Definitely one of a kind 
And I love me. 
That is essential so that  
I might love you too.

I have potentials, yes, 
There is greatness in me, 
And if I harness that specialness 
Then I will write my name 
In the sands of time with my deeds.

Yes, I must worker harder, longer, 
With greater drive 
If I am to excel, 
And I will pay that price. 
For talents demand daily 
Care and honing. 
I was born in God’s image and likeness 
And I will strive to do God’s will.

Waking The Beast by Dustin Russel Hall

Waking the BeastComing out of nowhere with his debut release. This novel will keep you eagerly burning through the pages as the story unfolds. Shocking plot twists, drama, action and suspense bring this novel to life as the boundary's of fact and fiction draw closer together in this horrid tale.  In the midst of W.W.II a small town in Southern California would experience something horrible which would later grow into a morbid legend. Tragically, a series of disappearances would end just as abruptly as they began. Left in the aftermath, seventeen people vanished without a trace. The disappearances stumped authorities and the community was left furious. With no one ever able to figure out exactly what happened during that short period of three weeks, the towns morale was devastated.

It offers large, colorful photos of every species found in North America--dabbling ducks, diving ducks, and geese--as well as the loons, grebes, and other waterbirds you're most likely to see. In most cases, both a male and a female in breeding plumage are shown. Accompanying text describes the species' habits, behaviors, characteristics, and calls--information that will help anyone appreciate these wild creatures and make a positive ID in the field.


Wallowing in the Past Prevents us from making our Future Better

Page TurnLast week as I was walking toward my favorite coffee shop, I couldn’t help but overhear one end of a cell phone conversation. A woman was speaking to a friend and she was obviously frustrated because she was speaking loudly and directly. She said to her friend, “You’ll never be able to write the next chapter of your life if you keep reading the previous chapter over and over again.” I thought, “Wow! What powerful advice.” What this woman was saying is that dwelling on the past won’t change it, but it does prevent us from moving forward and making our future better.

Tempe - Then and Now

Tempe - Then and NowCharles Trumbull Hayden built the first canal on the south side of the Salt River in 1870. Soon after, he built a store, a flour mill, and a cable ferry across the river, and he started a town. Since then, Tempe has changed from a small farming community to a lively urban center. Moreover, Tempe's residential growth has made it the seventh-largest town in Arizona.

Miracle Worker

Art FettigWhat would you like to hear just before you hit the back door and head home from a powerful two or three day conference on safety? I always figure that the closing speaker has the job of convincing attendees that they have just attended the best conference of their lives.

I can recall back when I was doing a lot of national conventions and when  I arrived at a fancy hotel where several thousand people were gathered, the conference chairperson would run up and grab me like I was a lifesaver and say simply, "Oh Art, everything up to now has gone wrong. The other speakers were awful. The sound systems have been failing. The food and service has been terrible. All of the attendees and exhibitors are ready to kill me. All I want you to do in this final session, Art, is to convince them that this has been the best convention they have ever attended and that I am their hero. And I'd appreciate it if you would also sell them on coming back next year." Most of the time I was successful.  Anyway I had fun, often meeting that challenge.

I guess really, all of us are called upon now and then to pull a calamity out of the burning embers and create a positive result.  So often we are required to take a botched up mess and turn it into the stepping stone for a bright new future. A positive attitude toward such a situation will go a long way; add a smile and a kind word and a challenge and just maybe you might save the day and at the same time save your job too. Good luck.
