“Forget all of the reasons why it won’t work and believe in the one reason why it will” For the first half of my career I was so quick to give things up if I was failing at it. Whether it was failing at learning something new or failing at something I knew already, I always took the fail as a loss and would move onto something else. Then I would just be mad at myself for it. I remember seeing this quote one day and it really changed my mind set on a lot of things, professionally and personally. I became the person who would look a challenge in the face knowing I was going to succeed. Even if I would fail at first, I promised myself to keep trying until it was a success.

Choices in my perspective, choices in my responses, choices in my focus, choices in my emotions, choices in everything. It’s always up to me. Read more>>

“Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are.” Brene Brown I happen to love quotes in general but this is one of my favorites. I feel this one embodies my brand which is a reflection of my life. I have learned that in order to achieve success, we must be true to ourselves. To truly experience the joy of personal success, each of us must be willing to embrace our individual course throughout life, emerge through each encounter with greater strength, courage and wisdom, and evolve into a place where we celebrate our most genuine selves with a gratitude that transcends the applause of others in favor of the peace that comes from knowing I am enough.
