Cliff notes

Gratitude is essential so as not to lose yourself in your dream job.

Among all the judgements and eyeballs on you, forgiveness allows you to forgive yourself and others. It lets you have peace and certainty. 

Make sure you take accountability for all the lessons and challenges you’ve experienced.

Understand motivation and inspiration. Motivation is the ability to get the team-up. Inspiration is the understanding of what will allow them to fulfil that desire to be what they can be in the organization’s context.

The great lessons implanted in me during my childhood slowly dissipated because I started buying into my BS. I began to surround myself with the wrong people.

What saved me was the truth that I better take stock in who I was and what I wanted to become. It was gratitude, forgiveness, accountability and inspiration that took my life back on track.

People want to be empowered and inspired.

Take inventory of your capabilities. Understand the skills you have, need or want. Then, look at how these skills would supplement or synergize in what’s currently doing well today.

People who are very successful ask for help.

The people who get there don’t quit.

Understand the scope, scale and size.

If I run into an opportunity with pain, and that pain is telling me that there’s a lesson to learn. The lesson could be to pivot or re-engineer to something else, but we’re not quitting. The pain that you feel when you’re almost there, it’s not a stop sign. It’s a turn signal.

Create a habit machine first. The first habit to put into that machine is gratitude.

Be kind to your future self and do good deeds.
