I had a personal emergency today and didn’t go online until almost 2 PM this afternoon. Lo and behold, there were over 200 linkedin invitations in my gmailbox! And the day isn’t over yet.
WOW! All thanks to Rock Star Recruiter Dave Mendoza, mover, shaker, kingmaker – or queenmaker, to be gender-exact. This phenomenon has nothing at all to do with me or my overnight popularity. Au contraire, it is a reflection of the leadership and strong sway of Dave Mendoza’s word forged through years of being aligned with the virtue of integrity.
How many of us can claim to speak from a place of integrity?
I’m reminded of Don Miguel Ruiz’s highly acclaimed and powerful book The Four Agreements. In it, Don Miguel talks about the agreements we make with ourselves about who we are, how to behave, what is possible, and what is impossible.
The First Agreement is Be Impeccable With Your Word. The fact that Dave Mendoza’s “suggestion to link with Maya” was followed by so many is a clear indication that Dave has been impeccable with his word in the past, and maintains this practice in his daily life.
What a sterling role model he is for all of us. You are well-loved and highly respected, Dave! We are blessed to know you.
