Six Elements to Live By
- Leverage your unique point of difference.
Everyone has his or her own personal experiences to learn from. Whether it is positive or negative, understand that your personal background can be a catalyst for your career.
- Be a dreamer.
Develop a goal that is completely bold and a bit magical. It should make you nervous and take your breath away simply to think about it.
- Have a game plan.
If you don’t design your life’s plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s life plan. Travel your personal journey like you would a business and always have a three-year plan for your personal and professional life.
- Shape your reality.
Reality is not fixed, but rather it is constantly changing. We have the opportunity and obligation to change things we don’t like.
- Surround yourself with the right people.
Choose to be around those who will support your life’s dreams and help you through the transition. Keep detractors at a distance.
- Be a poster child for exemplary character.
Character and values are critical to long-term success. Create a list of things you would like to live up to and live with the highest ethical values.
