An old mentor of mine once said to me: “You are never going to be successful, for as long as you are solely addicted to praise!” The young egocentric me immediately rebuffled.... “But I’m NOT!” (With my eyebrows in inverted V’s - ^😠) It was honestly as if he was staring down the inside of the phone and watching me, as he said: “So why have you got the brows down and taking what Ive just said to heart so much?!” He had me!
He saw right through me in fact!
Not in a self righteous, i’m right, you’re wrong way but rather, he saw the real me beyond the story📝
Beyond the BS 🐂💩 Beyond the “yeah buts!”🤫 He saw my potential!
That conversation with Mitchell Behan of @mjbseminars has stayed with me a long time!
I will never forget it and it has been a reference point in many interviews, panels and podcasts I have been on, where I say.
Choose purpose over popularity, that’s how the world transforms.
