“You must believe in yourself and your vision. When you do this, you will manifest the life you desire.”
Quote from interview:
“I really believe in giving back, like you are where you are for, with whatever attributes that got you there, whether it’s sponsors or mentors or your own grit, how can you give back? How can you be generous by short-cutting someone else’s success?”
R.O.G. Takeaway Tips:
1. Mentor and share your wisdom with others.
2. Identify your Sponsors. Be sponsorable.
3. Believe in yourself and your vision. Turn your limiting beliefs into liberating truths.
