New Year Thoughts

New Year Thoughts

At this special time of year, I would like to say THANK YOU!  I’m thankful and honored to have such amazing friends, trusted business associates and the best clients in the world!

As we approach 2020 I thought I would share some thoughts to take into the New Year.

Richard Branson

“Never look back in regret–move on to the next thing.”

What’s done is done and the only thing we can do is learn the lesson and move on….hopefully wiser.

Warren Buffet

“Invest in yourself. The one easy way to become worth 50% more than you are now at least is to hone your communication skills — both written and verbal.”

Humans have the ability to communicate yet somehow true, open communication is becoming a lost art.  And Remember God gave us two years and one mouth.  We should listen more than we talk.

Oprah Winfrey

“Embrace the power of your flaws”

Here’s what she has to say about that….  “When I first started my own show in Chicago, I was talking to a bunch of models,” she said. “They were all these skinny, pretty girls and they were talking about their cellulite. I was like, girl, I can show you some cellulite!”

“I think that moment, and then the rest of the audience relating to that moment, I started to realise that being yourself, allowing yourself to be vulnerable, embracing your faults, that everybody has them, that’s what gives you power.”

Michelle Obama

“Stop being so afraid.”

Fear tends to hold us back and many times that fear is unfounded.  Don’t just step out of the box, blow it up!

And here is my personal favorite…..

Epictetus

“Life is not about what happens to you, it’s how you react.”

Epictetus was a Greek philosopher who spent his youth as a slave.  After becoming crippled he was banished from Rome, he lived in Greece the rest of his life.

We can only control our own thoughts and behavior.  So, before you react, take a breath and remember that whatever you see or hear is through the filters you have developed in your lifetime.

May 2020 be a productive, prosperous and happy one!
