Don Ward - Shoe Shine Boy

Thanks to Forbidden Knowledge TV

Don't be deceived by his avocation. 
Don Ward probably has more integrity 
and spiritual insight than anyone on 
Wall Street.

Of course he's been aware, his whole 
life, that being a "shoe-shine boy" was 
not exactly aspirational, in the eyes of 
many - likely including his own family. 

Moreover, his very job description was 
used as a pejorative term by whites to 
intimidate blacks (who did not shine 
shoes for a living) throughout the 20th 
century and earlier, to put blacks back 
"in their place".

But after years of culinary school, where Don Ward mastered the art of being a 
pastry chef - he realized it just wasn't him.
 
Then he had the bravery to be true to himself and recognize that he had to live 
HIS life - not somebody else's idea of what his life should be.

So, he went back to shining shoes on 6th Avenue and 47th Street in Manhattan. 
And this man is happy and fulfilled, doing a job that he loves - which is so evident, 
in the way that he commands the block, selling his services to the hurried, tough 
New Yorkers, power-walking past him.

You can see, that at the very core of his work is just pure love - and how he wouldn't 
have it any other way - and the customers keep on coming. 
 
In his words, "I guess, till I leave this Earth, I'll always be pushing for better and not 
worrying about how someone else perceives life should be. I'm gonna be me. That's it.
However you react and respond to it, is your business."

Please, please watch this to the end. This man has a lot to teach us all.
