Recently I was asked by if I could share 500 words of wisdom to summarize what I've learned so far in life, these are the important things I'd want to pass along to others. Here's what came to me.

You Are Amazing

You are amazing. Do you know that? Really, you are. You have a gift and you are here to share it. It's your time to shine. It's time to stop dimming your light to blend in or conform to what others tell you to do. You know you best.

And you know you are meant for great things.

You know that your most meaningful life is directly tied to you being YOU 100% of the time. Your main responsibility - the reason you were put on this planet - is to nurture your gifts and allow them to flow through you. This is your ticket to having the greatest impact in the lives of the people that you love and is also what is going to open the doors to your most successful and fulfilling life.

Many people believe that hard work and luck is how I got my big breaks, but I'm here to tell you it's not. Success doesn't come from burning the candle at both ends until one day you hit the tipping point. Outside looking in, it often seems that way though.
