Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Myself:

    The negative noise came from within. It said not to speak up in meetings or in work groups in fear of being wrong or having a stupid idea.

  • How I responded:

    Step outside your comfort zone. You will be surprised how many people will want to hear your opinion or thoughts. You never know, your idea may be the one they go with! And if not, that is ok.

  • This was my motivator. I wanted to do this for myself and my family.
