If you boiled life down to one philosophy that brings meaning and adds value to your life no matter what circumstances you face, what is that philosophy for you?

My philosophy is understanding my purpose and why I am here. Regardless of the circumstances I find myself in, I have to remember why I’m here and who I am to serve. Adding value to others allows me to serve others and if I can keep myself focused on that, then I know I am always doing what I’m suppose to do regardless of the circumstance. I’m not suggesting this is easy. Distractions occur and life happens. But the more I can remember I’m here to serve others, it keeps me grounded.

What are one or two keys to success for you?

One of my success tips is a daily ritual which allows me to become centered and focused on what’s most important. This has been hard for me to do. We all have multiple priorities, but having a time of reflection and connecting to God’s word is what I need. The other success tip is valuing others. I have to be intentional about it because I’m not always focused on others. I get caught up with me and that’s when I lose.

What is one of the biggest mistakes you’ve made and what did you learn from it?

One of my biggest mistakes was when I had an employee mess up and it wasn’t intentional. It was because I didn’t give him proper training nor did I establish clear expectations. Unfortunately I blamed him for the failure, but it was my failure and I didn’t recognize it until he left the company. I have never been able to apologize to him but if I ever get the chance, I will.  I learned you have to be very clear in setting clear expectations for those you lead.

What is your best advice for people who want to SHOW UP AND SHINE? In other words, what would you say to help people live into their bigger story?

In order to SHOW UP AND SHINE, I suggest people know WHO they are, WHERE they want to go, and then figure out HOW to get there. There’s a reason each of us is here. To live into your biggest story, discover that reason and do it now.
