There's No Place Like Hope

Posted by Jody Urquhart on Tue, Jun 07, 2011 @ 12:50 PM

keynote speaker for financial executivesI was a keynote speaker for a Forum for Financial Executives where the theme was change. Most people can sympathize, because financial professionals have been through a lot of it and I was reminded that as we adjust to changing times we must cling to certain unchanging principles. Hope is one of them.
Inspire hope for the future by believing in somebody else. Many people have gone farther than they thought they would
because someone else thought they could.  

The other keynote speaker for the financial executives, Rolf Whitby reminded us of the song, “It’s You I Like” from Mr. Roger’s Neighbourhood.
   
It’s you I like,
It’s not the things you wear,
It’s not the way you do your hair –
But it’s you I like.
The way you are right now,
The way down deep inside you –
Not the things that hide you –
Not your toys –
They’re just beside you.
But it’s you I like,
Every part of you,
Your skin, your eyes, your feelings
Whether old or new. 
I hope that you’ll remember
Even when you’re feeling blue
That it’s you I like,
It’s you yourself, it’s you,
It’s you . . . I . . . like!
