Several weeks ago, during his final newscast, Bjorkman signed off for the last time, telling his viewers, "My departure is coming maybe a few years earlier than expected, but as I say when life throws a curve ball,you gotta swing and hopefully you're gonna hit it. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you and God bless each and every one of you. So that's it. If you got a sick animal, bring 'em to me."
It would be normal for the former anchor to believe his self-worth had been compromised now that he will earn so much less. But when asked what he's worth, Bjorkman said, "I think what I do now is going to be priceless. Nobody can take that away from me. I can do that until I die. Maybe not get paid a lot of money, but I think the profession I'm going into is a very great profession, an honored profession. And so I think my self-worth is way up there."
"All this exterior stuff defines us and the hardest question to ask and answer in life is, 'Who am I?'" said Orman. "If people can truly understand who they are, truly who they are, then they know the key to life."
