Close to 1000 people gathered at the MPEC Exhibit Hall for the 13th annual Wichita Falls Leadership Breakfast.
Guest speaker, Dan Walters, said the secret to success lies with integrating your work with your life's purpose.
Kelly Fristoe, member of the Wichita Christian school board said, “They're going to hear a very inspiring message about information and tools that they can go back and implement in their family, in the work place and the community. After this event, we're going to have people get the light bulb and say, 'oh man, I never thought about it like that.”
Fristoe believes this event is a win-win for the community.
“Cause they're going to hear a very inspiring message about information and tools that they can go back and implement in their family, in the work place and the community,” said Fristoe
Walters’ main focus was to teach Texoma how to pursue success and said success begins when we connect our work with our faith.
“If you can connect with your purpose in life, you can take that deeper to soul satisfaction,” said Walters. I think literally it comes from connecting your work and your faith.”
Walters believes when we connect our personal stories with a bigger picture, that’s when the secret to success comes into play. He said by overcoming the current drought, Wichita Falls has an unprecedented opportunity to lead the state of Texas and show the nation what overcoming adversity looks like.
“I just want you to blink your eyes and see that story within a bigger story and see how that can affect the rest of the state,” said Walters
Financially, the money that's left over from the event will go to Wichita Christian School.
“To produce whatever education system that we have there and produce a different kind of graduate,” said Fristoe. “They’ll be better equipped in the world than what they would have been otherwise.”
The event started with a breakfast buffet at 7:00 a.m. followed by Dan Walters’ speech on the secret to success.
