Patricia Raskin

host of the Patricia Raskin Positive Living radio show, is a nationally recognized, multi-media radio talk show host, award-winning producer, speaker and author.

In my book Pathfinding I write, "For many people, finding their purpose becomes a life-long search. Others seem to find it early on in their quest for selfhood... The path to our purpose is an inner path. Our purpose is not something we discover, it's something we uncover. Finding our purpose answers the question, "Why am I here?" ... "What path have I chosen?" and "Am I on the right path?"

We all hear and we all listen but there is a big difference between the two in quality and quantity. When we hear, we hear words. When we are not paying attention, we hear sound. If we look attentive, we can often get away with not listening, but listening gives us and the person we are talking to something far greater.

The saying goes that the car you drive tells a lot about you. I think that is also true of your home. You may not be the in the home of your dreams, but where you select to live and what you select to be in your home, certainly speaks to your choices and values.

The term entrepreneur wasn't something I was raised to think about. I was given the gift of singing as a child. I became a teacher and guidance counselor. I never dreamed that one day I would use my voice and counseling skills as an independent radio broadcaster. I do believe that my drive and passion and energy, thirst for learning about people and focus comes from my genes.

In my book Pathfinding I write, "Psychologists have estimated that the average person has over 62,000 thoughts each day. Most people's thoughts are a hodgepodge of internal concerns about money, sex, work, rent, car payments, meals, TV programming, health care, grocery lists, family issues, child rearing, the economy and traffic.

The issues presented in this book affect us all, and the underlying message is that we all have the ability to create positive experiences and achieve both internal and external success in our lives while working through life’s challenges. Her seven principles are:

  1. Honor Your Heritage
