    It’s extremely beneficial to remind ourselves now and again to live courageously. “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage,” (Anaïs Nin) Your ability to do something that is right or good, even if it’s hard, even if it makes you feel uncomfortable, even if it scares you, will bring more to your life. “Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway.” (John Wayne) But saddling up, that courage within, is not always, in fact it’s very rarely an action movie sequence where the hero defeats an enemy with poise and strength and everyone is left in awe of such a magnificent defeat. That would be pretty cool though. I like to visualize my inner victories in that manner sometimes. The truth is that “Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow’.” (Mary Anne Radmacher) At the end of the day, if you’re willing to try again, even when you feel like giving up, even when you’re burnt out, especially when you’re burnt out

    3 Myths of Successful People They are more motivated than you No way.  Have you even been listening to the podcast?!  One of my favorite books explains that "motivation is a frail and fickle friend." It only comes around once-in-awhile and if you're waiting for it, you're not going anywhere.  Successful people aren't more motivated, they pursue commitment instead! In other words, successful people act independently of their thoughts that are saying "It would be more fun to watch tv," or "I really don't feel like it today," or "I'll just do it tomorrow." They just do what they know is right and good for them EVEN THOUGH, their mind is saying something else.  Soon, your thoughts will start to reflect your actions and you'll actually want to do those things that you previously procrastinated or didn't do altogether because they're hard. No one is saying these things aren't hard, but you can do it.  They say "Yes!" to everything Uh-uh.  My goodness you'd probably fall right off the earth if you tried to do everyt

She’s worked at a start up, grown with one of the most famous Canadian scale ups (and subsequent crashes) and now works for a major financial services firm in Canada advising the chief transformation officer on digital transformation. The Burnt Out Experience About a year ago, Anna was working with a startup up. They circled and circled around how they could get the business model to work and to scale. She spent months working at it. She felt like there was so much noise in her head that the answer was there, she just couldn't hear it.  As hard and as much as she worked at it, she felt like she wasn't getting any closer to the solution. She felt like she was just circling the drain.  How did she deal?

While she was enjoying her surroundings, it ALL came to her. Why the work they were doing
