Wouldn’t it be great if we could just change the world RIGHT NOW? Just hit a button and cut out every hurtful, sad, tragic, scary and bad part of it, to start fresh and build it back with love, friendship, trust and laughter?
I think we can change the world, but we have to start with ourselves. If you can be a better you, and inspire others to do the same.. Have them inspire others to do the same again… Sooner or later we have to get around the world, right? It’s a nice thought.
I have worked a lot on myself the last 7-8 months. Every single day I have strived to develop myself and become a better me than I was the day before. I have gone through great changes and it feels fantastic, but I still have a long way to go. I keep working on myself every day. I honestly think you will never be “done” developing yourself. You are never “fully there”. There is always room for improvement.
And like Zig Ziglar said: “People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” I think that sums it up pretty neatly.
Today is the last day of specific lessons that I share from our recent event in Denver. The Empower Network(and Big Idea Mastermind) event was a huge success. I am strongly encouraging my entire team that next time we should all go. There is nothing better for your development than going to the event, meeting other like-minded people and learn new aspects of yourself and the business. NEXT EVENT WE GO ON STAGE TOGETHER(to pick up our paychecks:))!
Vick Strizheus said to start with yourself. Talk to yourself as who you are, a leader. You are a leader of yourself and you have to act like it. There is no other person that can control your thoughts and your emotions. Only you. And you have to be a good leader!
Justin Verrengia had a very touching speech for us on Saturday. Both him and his wife are excellent speakers and I don’t think there were many dry eyes left in the room when they finished. The passion and vision this couple share is impressive. One of the most important things I got from this speech(but I got a lot and I can’t repeat it all cause I wouldn’t do it justice), is that you should not compete against and compare yourself to others… ONLY compare yourself to YOU. Try to be a better person today than you were yesterday. Be the change you want to see in the world!
I have a big vision myself and it comes in many layers. I was born and raised in Washington, DC and my mother and I were not of the wealthiest households on the block. I am forever thankful to my mom and her ability to “find a way”. One of the things she pulled together was getting me decent dental care. She saw the importance in this and so do I. It’s great to smile a big confident smile to the world. I want to help young kids growing up in my old community so they can get free dental care – 1. for health reasons 2. for confidence reasons.
