If you have ever heard me speak, training a group or keynoting an event, you have most likely heard me talk about my grandfather…my hero for many reasons. He fought in WW2 against the Nazi’s as a Brigade Commander, immigrated to the US and was bigger than life. I thank God for being born into the family I was born into because I have a reference to having guts, strength and moving forward regardless of trials in life and circumstances. My grandfather taught me that a bad day was fighting Nazi’s; not a bad day at work. It’s good to keep this in mind when I feel like throwing a pity party – I always tell myself that I don’t have Nazi’s shooting at me and I’m not in a concentration camp. This might sound crazy to some of you, but it allows me to have the guts I need to keep going, raise my kids in this crazy world, be an incredible wife, build my business and be my best self every single day regardless of what anyone says. Having the right perspective is underrated – perspective is everything. Where you look, you’re going to go. If the world is just ‘hard’ and you’re constantly complaining, you’re never going to be the best you were created to be.
Take his advice – ‘You must have guts just to do it.’ He knew if he didn’t do anything he would die anyway, so he looked around and had enough guts to just do it, walk out and take a chance he could be killed. His perspective was that he had to live and if that meant jumping into a river to escape in the middle of the night, walking out of a camp or fighting for his life – he had guts.
So 2018. Kill it. Have guts.
