I’m still a work in progress and wanted to share some things I have and continue to learn in my 50 years.

  1. Don’t be Jealous. My parents always told me to never be jealous of anyone — it will kill you. I believed them and the older I get, the more I know they were right.
  2. Commit to a morning ritual to get your day started with the right energy, mindset and drive.
  3. How to Learn. We all learn through stories and lessons.
  4. Know the power you have. Use it wisely and use it to raise people up — not down.
  5. Slow down. Everything is happening how it’s supposed to happen. Stop feeling rushed.
  6. Follow Your Instincts. When your instincts tell you don’t do something, don’t second guess yourself.
  7. Surrender to the Universe. Be open to your unique ability let it flow through you so you can help and inspire others with less effort.
  8. Give Thanks. Say, “Thank you” to everyone who helps you and to those who simply need it.
  9. Show Respect. The janitor is the same as the CEO. Treat everyone equally.
  10. Be Grateful. Remember every day what you are grateful for.

Share your lessons with the world. You never know who needs to hear — or read — your words and wisdom!
