. . . while humans have sophisticated hardware between our ears (especially in comparison to a turkey), we also have a number of innate psychological triggers that profoundly influence our thinking and well-being. …often without our knowledge or consent! Which, in many instances, is a wonderful thing (like in the case of humor). And let’s be honest… People often need a firm nudge to act in their own best self-interest. Think diet and exercise, for instance.
I am the only person with the unique experiences, knowledge, and understanding that I possess in the World! There is no one else like me! I am exactly what my team need. I am exactly what my family and friends need although my business may not be. My mistakes and weaknesses are part of the package. My team needs to see me exactly as I am - warts and all. There is such freedom in those statements don't you think. It gives us permission to publicly fail. That is vital since we will fail.

my family and friends. How crazy was that?!? I didn't know better . . . until the Internet found me and introduced me to a team of super mentors and coaches. Now I know how to let the Internet find my team with NO rejection! As soon as I knew that I didn't NEED for my family and friends to join me in my business, I relaxed when I was with them. I don't stalk restaurant managers and servers anymore. I don't have to be a Mall Shark! When I meet someone I am FREE to focus on them and their NEEDS. I love it. And I love me.
