Monday Morning Motivation:
Want To Thrive In The Wilderness?
Do These 3 Things!

Hey now.. it’s another Monday.. welcome to it!

Let’s jump right in with today’s Monday Morning Motivation. The other day, my husband and I were talking about the precarious nature of life. Like so many of you, the plans we made years and years ago either didn’t come to fruition or were drastically altered, many times through no fault of our own.

Then Buff said something about thriving in the wilderness; sounds like a great book right? But it got me thinking about that.. how do we continue to be our best when things are really tough?

Here are the 3 things I think you MUST do if you want to continue to learn, grow and ultimately THRIVE during those times.


2. Learn From Every Experience

I give a lot of speeches around the country and this is one of the things I try to hammer home... there's learning in life's valleys. In fact, I would argue it's those times we're stretched to what we think is capacity, that we learn the most. Looking back on my own evolution, I'm shocked by how much I have grown over the last decade. What I know about social media, new media, marketing and the like are things I know I never would have learned had I still been working that big TV gig. But learning by doing is like being on the front lines of a war; there's a lot of discomfort and frankly, fear. But you know what? Those victories are the sweetest.
