This installment of Windshield Wisdom needs to begin by simply saying "Thank You" to the dozens of you who have reached out over the last few weeks with congratulations, comments, and a bunch of good ol' fashioned, "Where the heck have you been for the last year?" curiosity.
Where have I been?
Let's just say I've been learning some pretty important lessons about life, family, and growing through the unexpected twists and turns we all face.
I honestly hesitated to share this story, but let's be even more honest. If we're going to grow and be successful as professionals, then sometimes success won't come down to the newest sales strategy or technique, but through moving forward and learning how to become better people.
Anyone can learn from these ideas, and that's what this week's video is all about.
1. When you're unsure of what comes next, be sure to surround yourself with people who's advice you trust. It doesn't mean you have to take it, but at least you have someplace to start.
2. It's easy to get trapped in the day-to-day chaos of our careers and lives. If you find yourself spinning in circles, a great skill to develop is learning how to slow things down, breath, and think before you make changes. Meditation has made a world of difference for me.
3. Your life path is absolutely an accumulation of the choices you make. You may not be able to completely control the circumstances that force those choices upon you, but you can certainly choose a path that is the best fit for you and your loved ones.
