  1. Newsworthy Blog…

    Your esteem Blog highlights a plethora of current events as seen in the news as recent as Hurricane Sandy which is quite extraordinary. On the other hand; do take time to appreciate the following newsworthy article…

    You may not be an incomparable genius like Albert Einstein or William Shakespeare. Nevertheless, the world could not get by without you. Your contributions to society and the world at large are the focus of the exciting book; You’re a Worthwhile Person in More Ways than a Million.

    Simeon W. Johnson offers unique glimpses into the world of those taken all too often for granted: the anything-but-ordinary, unsung workers who are as valuable to us as our society’s ‘stars.’ From electricians and carpenters to shoemakers and cooks, firefighters and police officers to hospital orderlies and hairdressers, Simeon Johnson introduces you to today’s true ‘heroes.’

    The message of this book is unquestionable meaningful.
    Consider why First Lady Michelle Obama, President Emeritus Bill Clinton, Golf Legend Tiger Woods, Renowned Poet Maya Angelou and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg Are Thanking Simeon W. Johnson – and the Global appeal of this new and unique book.

    You’re a Worthwhile Person in More Ways than a Million by Simeon Johnson is an enjoyable, frank and honest read which lauds the everyday person and the jobs they do. Too often society overlooks the hotel maid, bus driver or the building superintendent. Johnson points out – without these essential people who keep society functioning, our lives would come to a grinding halt.

    By telling the story of ‘the average Joe’ the reader is forced to acknowledge the importance of their jobs. The reader is implored to ask themselves about their treatment of these people, the bellhop; -waiter or the coat check person. Are we snide, entitled and obnoxious? Are we grateful and appreciative of the jobs they do for us? And while you’re at it, ask yourself, how do you show appreciation for such people? Do you tip them properly or even better thank them for their service?

    This book gives us all something to think about regarding the position we play in society. It also serves as recognition of sorts for all men and women who go about their daily lives and go to their jobs that often provide little or no recognition, appreciation and often times fairly low compensation.

    You’re a Worthwhile Person is the equivalent of ‘This Bud’s For You’ the beer commercial, instead Johnson intimates ‘This Book is For You.’ Hail to the cooks, cab drivers, subway operators, electricians -plumbers and countless other thankless jobs ordinary people do to provide the grease that keeps the wheels of society going.

    In one chapter, for instance, Johnson lauds a New York City Transit bus driver, Gloria Valez. Johnson describes how Valez cares for the safety of each passenger. She is patient with the elderly, tolerant of the young and the restless and polite to lonely people who talk to her despite a posted sign that advises against it. Valez is not just working for a paycheck or any sort of recognition – outside of this book she will probably receive none, even from her employer. While standing at the bus stop on a miserably cold day you sure are glad to have her pull up and open the door of the warm bus and drive you to your destination.

    Other examples, when the air conditioning unit in your home goes out on a 90 plus day, you sure are glad to see the repair person come in to solve the problem and get you cool once again. And while you’re in the hospital suffering from an illness or recovering from major surgery, you’re glad when the nursing assistant who sticks around to comfort you after the much lauded nurses and doctors have gone home.

    You’re a winner who never quits; is a message which exemplifies a profile in courage, we see in the news today…

    Yes, there are many ordinary people who do their jobs well while they are overlooked by the people they serve. Read this important work and when you’re done you are sure to have a new found respect for the everyday people who do so many important jobs’ including yourself.

    – Simeon W. Johnson
