    42 - The Importance of Trying

    42 - The Importance of Trying

    I read a quote in a book a few years ago. It said, "Just keep going. Don't stop." The quote comes from Nike's founder Phil Knight and summarizes his best guidance in life. I have lived that motto my whole life and do my best to model it to you. Life does not always go our way, but our decision to keep going makes all the difference. This week's episode takes you behind the scenes of my life and business as I give you several examples of how we "just keep going."

    41 - Messages from You, Students

    While the details of the messages you send me may be different, you'd be amazed at how similar they can be. We all have our own unique challenges in life, but we have a lot in common with those around us. On today's episode, I highlight a few recent messages (w/o giving personal information) and my responses to them. My hope is that you can take this guidance and apply it to the challenges in your own life. Thank you to all of you who send me messages!
