Before I say anything else, I must say THANK YOU.
The love and support you shared for me, my dad and my family was truly overwhelming. I read every comment and every note that came my way, and each one fueled me with hope and possibility.
I am so deeply appreciative of your humanity, your kindness and generosity. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read this.)
And, I’m happy to report that my amazing Pops is doing so much better now. We’ve been getting positive feedback from the team of docs he’s working with and I’m incredibly optimistic about the road ahead.
Now onto today’s episode. This Q&A got me super fired up. It has to do with something I’ve heard throughout my life (though thankfully not much anymore).When you’re hungry for success, don’t let anyone feed you crap about slowing down. Click To Tweet
And anytime someone would say this two-word phrase to me, I wanted to slap them silly. Not because I didn’t think their intentions were good, but more because I didn’t feel understood as a human being.
Have a watch and learn what I believe is the world’s worst advice for ambitious people. As you’ll hear me say in the episode, I’m not talking about burning yourself out or doing anything that would negatively impact you or your relationships. We need to make that uber clear, OK?
What I am talking about is a natural and very healthy hunger many of us have to create, connect and contribute. It’s an insatiable sense of curiosity and enthusiasm for life. For doing things, making things and discovering things that spark joy.
You’ll also learn when it’s absolutely worth your while to listen to folks when they say this specific two-word phrase to you.
Now, I’d love to hear from you. Is there anything that folks seem to say to you as a creative changemaker that drives you bananas? Let’s have some fun with this one, shall we?
My hope is that together, we can have a good-hearted laugh at the things that make our minds crazy, and we can see that we’re not alone after all.
