Traveling to Jodpur
Where else do you have the opportunity to see an elephant transporting passengers down a busy highway? Maybe nowhere, but we all saw this on our way to Jodpur. Traveling gave plenty of cause for complaint and worry. It wouldn’t be a bit surprising to see a defeated group and hear the whimpering that often accompanies hurtles and the unexpected. What we encountered instead are a team of people willing to overcome challenges and word like “How can I help and get us even closer to the mission that brought us all together. As Miguel offered during our first debriefing, “We were all chosen for a reason, and it shows.” Leaders showed their true colors by staying behind and making sure everyone made it together to our destination. People were more than willing to grab a bag and take the load off another weary traveler.
Miguel walked us through what is expected of all of us. There is no doubt we are engaged and ready to exceed each hand every one. People were getting choked up as they introduced themselves telling the rest of their team the excitement to be here. Together we are racing on the OneSight Amazing race, not to a finish line or a million dollar prize. Our reward is in the journey and the experience of a lifetime.
