I’m still a work in progress and wanted to share some things I have learned and continue to learn in my 50 years.
- You Need Mentors. Mentors are only mentors when they are selfless and don’t want/expect anything from you. Have a minimum of three who have your back.
- THINK BIG! We all have the right to think big – then we have to do the work.
- Make Time to Mourn. Mourning people you love is painful, but important to feel and live/walk through. Give yourself time.
- Change or conform. You can’t do both in a great way – you must choose one.
- There is a lesson in everything.
- Assholes are Assholes. Keep your distance.
- You can’t get very far with a narcissist.
- Learn the Importance of Vulnerability and Resistance. Thank you Brené Brown for making being vulnerable cool and thank you Steven Pressfield for defining resistance.
- Listen to Your Mother. Be optimistic and think, like I do: My Mom was right – I’ll be great at anything I do.
- Be Generous. Anonymously pay for someone’s order behind you in a drive through. It feels amazing!
Share your lessons with the world. You never know who needs to hear – or read — your words and wisdom!
