Take Pride In Your CHOICES, Not Your GIFTS!
In this episode, Eva shares Jeff’s response which to paraphrase was that successful people have a combination of gifts (e.g. natural-born talent) and a strong work ethic (e.g. the grit to develop those talents). Jeff further explained that we can celebrate our gifts, but we should not be proud of them. Instead we should take pride in the choice we make to work hard and become the best versions of ourselves.
