Embrace Tough Moments
I believe we are best able to make the world better when we are vulnerable. It’s really hard for most people to share what’s difficult for them. But everyone is struggling with something. If you are willing to share your difficulties, you will grow. It may not feel natural, but sharing our struggles allows us to make wonderful human connections. I learned this the hard way when I suddenly “forgot” how to pitch. It took me a while to open up about this and to demonstrate my vulnerability, but the long-term benefits of doing so have been immense.
Bring the Energy That You
Want to Be Known For
We decide how we show up. It’s up to us every time we walk into a room or get on the phone. I believe that we must always control the “controllables.” We get to set the tone the minute we begin each interaction.
Relationships Are Everything
I love meeting new people. You never know how you can impact someone else’s life or what doors might open. You can’t script it up ahead of time. It’s all about connecting with people. Whether it’s family, friends, or strangers who become friends, relationships are everything!
One For the Road. . . Don’t be afraid to fail. We are our own harshest critics. Anyone who ever achieved anything great has failed, likely more than once. Success is that much more enjoyable when you achieve it after overcoming failures.
