And finally we end our program today with a new essay from the NPR series THIS I BELIEVE.


Today we hear from Howard White of Portland, Oregon. As a young man he played basketball for the University of Maryland. He was drafted by the NBA, but injuries interrupted his career. White is now vice president for Nike. And he considers himself of a fortunate man. And he feels that his belief is a big part of that good fortune. Here’s the series curator independent producer Jay Allison with more.

 

Hi, Jay. 

Hi, Michelle. You know when people write for our series, they often look to the larger issues in life to define their beliefs, but not Howard White. He looked at the smaller things, and that’s maybe because he began life small himself as a premature baby and ended up the basketball star. So he knows that small beginnings can lead to large outcomes. And that's certainly a hallmark of his belief. Here’s Howard White with his essay, for THIS I BELIEVE. 

 

I work at a company where there are about a gazillion employees. I can't say that I know them all by name, but I know my fair share of them. I think that almost all of them know me. I'd say that's the reason I've been able to go wherever it is I've made it to in this world. It's all based on one simple principle: I believe every single person deserves to be acknowledged, however small or simple the greeting.

 

When I was about 10 years old, I was walking down the street with my mother. She stopped to speak to Mr. Lee. I was busy trying to bulls-eye the "O" in the stop sign with a rock. I knew I could see Mr. Lee any old time around the neighborhood, so I didn't pay any attention to him.

 

After we passed Mr. Lee, my mother stopped me and said something that has stuck with me from that day until now. She said, "You let that be the last time you ever walk by somebody and not open up your mouth to speak, because even a dog can wag its tail when it passes you on the street."

 

That phrase sounds simple, but it's been a guidepost for me and the foundation of who I am.

 

When you write an essay like this, you look in the mirror and see who you are and what makes up your character. I realized mine was cemented that day when I was 10 years old. Even then, I started to see that when I spoke to someone, they spoke back. And that felt good.

 

It's not just something I believe in; it's become a way of life. I believe that every person deserves to feel someone acknowledge their presence, no matter how humble they may be or even how important.

 

At work, I always used to say hello to the founder of the company and ask him how our business was doing. But I was also speaking to the people in the cafe and the people that cleaned the buildings, and asked how their children were doing. I remembered after a few years of passing by the founder, I had the courage to ask him for a meeting. We had a great talk. At a certain point, I asked him how far he thought I could in go in his company. He said, "If you want to, you can get all the way to this seat."

 

I've become vice president, but that hasn't changed the way I approach people. I still follow my mother's advice. I speak to everyone I see, no matter where I am. I've learned that speaking to people creates a pathway into their world, and it lets them come into mine, too.

 

The day you speak to someone who has their head held down and when they lift it up and smile, you realize how powerful it is just to open your mouth and say, "Hello."

 

That was Howard White with his essay for THIS I BELIEVE.
 

Before his mother passed away, she told Howard that what she wanted her great grandchildren to know about her was that she knew how to talk to people. Michelle will be hoping to tell me more listeners will talk to us about their beliefs, big or small, all the information and all the essays of NPR.org. 

For THIS I BELIEVE, I m Jay Allison. Back to you, Michelle.

 

Thank you, Jay. Jay Allison is co-editor with Den Gadman, John Gregory and Vicky Meric of the book THIS I BELIEVE, the personal philosophies of remarkable men and women. And that’s our program for today. I’m Michelle Martin and this is telling me more from NPR News. Let’s talk more tomorrow.

I believe every single person deserves to be acknowledged, however small or simple the greeting.

 

When I was about ten years old, I was walking down the street with my mother. She stopped to speak to Mr. Lee. I was busy trying the boot at the zero on a stop sign with the rock. I knew I can see Mr. Lee in the old town around the neighborhood. So I didn’t pay any attention to him. After we passed Mr. Lee, my other stopped me and said something that had stuck with me from that day until now. She said you let that be the last time you ever walk by somebody and not open up your mouth to speak, because even a dog can wag its tail when it passes you on the street. That phrase sounds simple, but it’s been a gap posed for me in the foundation of who I am.

 

When you write an essay like this, you look in a mirror and see who you are, and what makes up your character.

 

I realize mine was seeming at that day when I was ten years old. Even then, I started to see that when I spoke to someone. They spoke back and that felt good. It’s not just something I believe in. It’s become a way of life.

 

I believe that every person deserves to feel someone acknowledge/ their presence, no matter how humble they may be, or even how important.

 

At work, I always used to say hello to the founder of the company and ask him how our business was doing. But I was also speaking to the people in the café, and the people that clean the buildings, and ask how their children were doing.

 

I remembered / after a few years of passing by the founder, I had the courage to ask him for a meeting. We had a great talk. At a certain point I asked him, how far he thought I could go in his company. He said if you want to, you can get all the way to this seat.

 

I’ve become vice president, but that hasn’t changed the way I approach people. I still follow my mother’s advice, I speak to everyone I see, no matter where I am. I’ve learned that speaking to people creates a pathway into their world, and it lets them come into mine too.

 

The day you speak to someone that has their hat hailed down. And when they lift/ it up and smile, you realize how powerful it is just open your mouth and say hello.

 

That was Howard White with his essay for THIS I BELIEVE.

 

Before his mother passed away, she told Howard that what she wanted her great grandchildren to know about her was that she knew how to talk to people. Michelle will be hoping to tell me more listeners, will talk to us about their beliefs, big or small, all the information and all the essays through NPR.org.

 

For THIS I BELIEVE, I m Jay Allison. Back to you, Michelle.

 

Thank you, Jay. Jay Allison is / co-editor with Den Gadman, John Gregory and Vicky Meric of the book THIS I BELIEVE, the personal philosophies of remarkable men and women. And that’s our program for today. I’m Michelle Martin and this is tell me more from NPR News. Let s talk more tomorrow.

As a young man, he played basketball for the University of Neumann who’s drafted about the NBA, but injuries interrupted his career. Why this now vice president from Nike and he consider himself a fortunate man. If you also hear his belief, he is a big part of that good fortune. Here’s the series curator, independent producer, Jake Alison Reomore. “Hi, Jake”. Hi, Michelle. You know when people write for our series, they often look to the larger issues in life to define their beliefs, but not Howard White, he look to the smaller things. And that’s maybe because he began a life small himself as a premature baby and ended up a basketball star. So he knows that small beginnings can lead to large outcomes. And that’s the xx of his belief. Here’s Howard White with his essay for this “I believe”. I work at a company with about a xx employees. I can’t say that I know them all by name but I know for sure that I think that almost all of them know me. I think that’s the reason I have been able to go wherever it is. I’ve made it too in this word. It’s all based on one simple principle. I believe every single person deserves to be acknowledged, however small or simple their greeting. When I was about 10 years old, I was walking down the street with my mother. She stopped to speak to Mr. Lee, I was busy trying to boot xxxx sand with a rock. I knew I can see Mr. Lee in the no time around the neighborhood, so I didn’t pay any attention to him. After we passed Mr. Lee, my mother stopped me, and saying something that has stuck with me from that day until now. She said, “You let that be the last time you ever walk by somebody and opened up your mouth to speak, because even the dog can wag his tail when he passes you on the street.” That phrase sounds simple, but it has been the grapples for me in the foundation of who I am. When you write an essay like this, you look in the mirror and see who you are and what makes up your character. I realize might would see many that day when I was 10 years old. Even then, I started to see that when I spoke to someone, they spoke back and that go good. Isn’t that just something I believe in has become a way of life. I believe that everyone deserves to feel someone acknowledge their presence, no matter how humble they may be or even how important. At work, I always used to say hello to the founders of the company and ask him how our business was doing. But I was also speaking to the people in the café and the people that clean the buildings and ask how their children were doing. I remember after a few years of passing by the founder, I had the courage to ask him for a meeting. We had a great talk. At a certain point, I asked him how far he thought I could go in his company. He said, if you want to, you can go all the way to this seat. I become the vice-president, but that hasn’t changed the way I approach people. I still follow my mother’s advice, I speak to everyone I see no matter where I am. I’ve learnt to speak to people and create a pathway until their world and lets them come into mine too. The day you speak to someone that has their hair hailed down, and then when they lifted it up and smile, you realize how powerful it is just to open your mouth and say hello.

White is now vice president for Nike. And he considers himself of a fortunate man. And he feels that his belief is a big part of that good fortune. Here’s the series curator independent producer Jay Allison with more.

 

Hi, Jay.

 

Hi, Michelle. You know when people write for our series, they often look to the larger issues in life to define their beliefs, but not Howard White. He looked at the smaller things, and that’s maybe because he began life small himself as a premature baby and ended up the basketball star. So he knows that small beginnings can lead to large outcomes. And that's certainly a hallmark of his belief. Here’s Howard White with his essay, for THIS I BELIEVE.

 

I work at a company where there are about gazillion employees. I can’t say that I know them all by name, but I know my fair share of them. I think that almost all of them know me. I say that that’s the reason I have been able to go wherever it is, I've made it true in this world. It’s all based on one simple principle.

HOMEWORK

And finally we end up our program today with a new essay from the NPR series This I Believe. Today we hear from Howard White of Portland, Oregon. As a young man, he played basketball for the University of Maryland. He was drafted by the NBA but injuries interrupted his career. White is now vice president for Nike and he considers himself a fortunate man, and he feels that his belief is big part of that good fortune. Here’s the series’ curator, independent producer Jay Allison with more.

Hi, Jay.

Hi, Michelle. You know when people write for our series, they often look to the larger issues in life to define their beliefs, but not Howard White. He looked to the smaller things, and that’s maybe because he began life small himself as a premature baby and ended up a basketball star. So he knows that small beginnings can lead the larger outcomes. And that’s certainly a hallmark of his belief. Here’s Howard White with his essay for This I Believe.

I work at a company where there’re about gazillion employees. I can’t say that I know them all by name but I know my fair share of them. I think that almost all of them know me. I say that that’s the reason I’ve been able to go wherever it is. I’ve made it true in this world. It’s all based on one simple principle: I believe every single person deserves to be acknowledged, however small or simple the greeting. When I was about 10 years old, I was walking down the street with my mother. She stopped to speak to Mr. Li. I was busy tried a bulls at the zero on a stop sign with the rock. I knew I could see Mr. Li in the old town around the neighborhood. So I didn’t pay any attention to him. After we passed Mr. Li, my mother stopped me and said something that had struck with me from that day until now. She said, you let that be the last time you ever walk by somebody and not open up your mouth to speak because even a dog can wag his tail when it passes you on the street. That phrase sounds simple, but it’s been a gap posed for me in the foundation of who I am. When you write an essay like this, you look in the mirror and see who you are and what makes up your character. I realized mine was seeming at that day when I was 10 years old.

The day you speak to someone that has their head hanged down and when they lift it up and smile, you realize how powerful it is just open your mouth and say hello.

That was Howard White with his essay for This I Believe. Before his mother passed away, she told Howard that what she wanted her great-grand children to know about her was that she knew how to talk to people.
