I have been absolutely blessed to be raised by two healthy & loving parents who continuously gave me advice, insight and wisdom – especially when I needed it most. I am incredibly thankful for that!
My mother was a teacher and my father an artist. I have received innumerable tips, but today I will focus on just three – in no particular order.
1. Be a life-long learner. Learning doesn’t start or stop in the classroom, it is a continuous journey. Learn as much as you can. Apply what you know. Share what you’ve learned to help others. (From my mother)
2. To thine own-self be true. Always go with what your heart says to do. Do what makes you happy. Live your life and not the life of others. Don’t be afraid to forge your own path. (From my father)
3. Always believe in yourself. Confidence is key. Work hard. Listen. Learn. Grow. Believe. (From my father)
These 3 pieces of advice have had a tremendous impact in all areas of my life; personally, professional, etc. If you are able to put one of these three ideas into action you will be fine. If you can put all three into action, you will be a force. Be a force!
