I just read an email from a newsletter that I subscribe to from Rob at Owner Media Group. The title was the same as my post, “Make Yourself Proud.” Rob was writing about the advice he gave his son when he dropped him off at college. It got me thinking though.
With all the pressure to succeed, to impress others, to climb the corporate ladder, or as an entrepreneur – to win more business, we all make decisions every day that will drive our future. One comment in the email really stuck out and puts all this in perspective.
“I know that when I face my choices directly, if I can ‘make myself proud,’ the rest will fall into place.”
We all need to step back and think about this…
Are you making yourself proud?
