#WisdomWednesdays Who you truly are is who you really need to be. No one else is you but you. Everyone shines in their own way. Being who you truly are and going after what you want is important but being who you truly are and not hiding, it is also extremely important as well.⁣

Something that has really been helping me as of late, is continually reminding myself to follow my efforts, and to just keep plugging away at the things that I am really good at and the things that make me happy. To remind myself that small accomplishments are still accomplishments, it is still progression, and it is still moving forward in a positive direction. Sometimes big changes take time, but every small accomplishment eventually adds up to something big. I think what has really helped me, especially in business, is not being afraid to try. Sometimes I would try things, and it would not go as planned, but I would just adapt, learn, and try it a different way until it worked. Thomas Edison conducted 1000 failed experiments, but the 1001st was the light bulb. It is important to never give up, to keep moving forward, to strive to be better. When you are having a hard time, make sure you have a good team around you to lend you a helping hand, to pick you up when you are down, and to calm you down when you’re stressed.⁣

Nelson Mandela says it the best “never settle for a life that is less than the one that you are capable of living”. Surround yourself with the best and shine as bright as possible.⁣
