3 Big Takeaways

  1. Knowing people’s stories helps us better understand others and connect with them. Everyone has a set of intricate experiences and people that have helped shape them. When we hear people’s stories, we are then able to know where they are coming from. As we know were they are coming from, we are then able to better connect with them.
  2. Hustle, but don’t push. There is a thin line between the two. Both require dedication, commitment and work. “Pushing” comes at the expense of others and is continuing on a course that is destined to fail. Hustle is working hard with a heart that is open to adapting to feedback.
  3. Follow your success. When thinking about where to invest your time and energy, it is important to take note of where you have been successful. Though you may not believe in yourself, your success will give you valuable feedback, as to where you can possibly invest your time and energy.
