Why Mister Rogers?

Why Mister Rogers?

Mr Rogers Esquire MagazineSome of you were probably wondering what's up with playing Mister Rogers in the office. No, we haven't completely lost it! Yes, a new Mister Rogers documentary (click here to view the trailer) is coming out soon, but that's not the reason.
Remember when LIFE was SIMPLE?
My very good friend, Dr. Jason Wiebe, spoke at the Warrior Coaching Leadership conference recently. He titled his talk, "Remember when LIFE was SIMPLE?"
He talked about our Warrior code: we achieve MORE by DOING LESS ... intentional SIMPLICITY.
He used Mister Rogers as an example. Mister Roger's Neighborhood was on television for 33 years, with 895 episodes!! Every show he came in the door, sang the same song, took off his suit jacket, put on a sweater, took off his shoes, and put on his sneakers. In all those years on TV, the format or style never really changed!
In the 60's, JFK was shot, the nations were on the brink of war. In the 70's, racial tensions were high, high divorce rates, lack of morality was at its peak, and families were disintegrating. In the 80's, consumerism was raging, and it was all about getting more stuff. In the 90's, abusive power was the rage.
In 2001, planes were flying into the World Trade Center, and a new era of fear entered. Mister Rogers was off air by then, but came back with a special message to the world. He encouraged hope, confidence, forgiveness and love.

SIMPLE - DEEP - BASIC

Mister Roger's message was simple, basic, deep, and unchanging.

He SHOWED PEOPLE how to love each other, rather thantelling people with words what he believed.
Can't kids can be unbelievably blunt and open in their assessment of others! In the interview below with Jeff Erlanger, he showed children how to love and accept other kids going through health challenges.

Another example is on the Tonight Show, where Mister Rogers cut through all the fame and vanity of Hollywood. Look at how touched the heart of Joan Rivers by singing to her in his simple way of how much he cared. If you know her story, you know she was someone very broken, who needed to be loved.
You are surrounded by wounded, broken, scared children! Even the big kids (adults) desperately need you to reach out and love them as they are, in their brokenness!
It's You I Like

It's you I like,
It's not the things you wear,
It's not the way you do your hair--
But it's you I like.
The way you are right now,
The way down deep inside you--
Not the things that hide you,
Not your toys--
They're just beside you.But it's you I like--
Every part of you,
Your skin, your eyes, your feelings
Whether old or new.
I hope that you'll remember
Even when you're feeling blue
That it's you I like,
It's you yourself,
It's you, it's you I like.
