“I woke up the next day and asked myself – What do I want to do with my life? If money wasn’t a concern, if I could do anything I wanted, if I had no restrictions, what would I do? It didn’t take me long to figure out that if I could anything, I would get into my business. If you’re doing something just to make money, it’s easy to quit. Most people do. But if you’re doing something because it makes you come alive, then removing the restrictions life throws at you clears the path.”
“I didn’t want to live in regret for the rest of my life, wondering what would have happened if I had just gotten up for one more day and kept running my company. I didn’t want to go take a job I knew I didn’t love, hoping one day to get back my business while digging myself further and further into a corporate world I didn’t know if I’d be able to get out of. I had to find a way to keep going with my business.”
“For all of this to work, you have to be brutally honest and real with yourself. This isn’t about who ‘should be’ or hope to be. It’s not about what your family wants you to be or what your culture tells you to be. It’s about who you really are and leveraging that to build a purposeful and happy life for yourself. It’s about living your version of your life and following your dream, not theirs. If you keep living in a world where you can’t be yourself and you’re constantly striving for this ideal life of someone who isn’t who you actually are, you’ll never be fulfilled. You don’t have to be ashamed or afraid of your One Word. It’s who you are and it will guide you for the rest of your life. Look at your One Word and ask yourself – Is this really, deep down, who I am?”
“You owe it to yourself to try so you don’t try so you don’t have any regrets later in life. You have to give it your very best. If you don’t really give it your best shot, it’s almost as bad as not trying at all. You’ll always wonder what could have happened if only you tried harder. You’ll forever live with the regret of not putting a serious effort into being who you are. We rarely regret the things we try and fail at, and the upside is we get to live our dreams. It’s usually the things we don’t really try that linger and haunt us for the rest of our lives. Don’t be that person.”
“This is one the biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make. They hide behind their website and marketing materials. They don’t want to make it all about themselves. They don’t have huge egos. They want to make the products and services shine, not themselves. Big. Mistake. Telling your story isn’t about boosting your ego. Your story adds value and context for your customers.”
“You need to act. Here’s one of the most important things I’ve ever learned about goal setting: once you set a goal, you need to take immediate action toward doing something to achieve it. It doesn’t have to be a big, bold action. Just something. Something. Anything. Just get the momentum going. Here’s the thing: it’s way more important to do something right now than to do the perfect thing later. Because there is no perfect thing. And you likely won’t do anything later. So get started today. Right now. Act.”
