Contribute, No Matter What

Never let fear prevent you from putting yourself out there to the world, jumping in the deep end of the pool or taking a risk to achieve something great.

Believe me, some people will do everything they can to rip you to shreds, tear you apart and beat you to a pulp. You cannot let them or that diminish your spirit or resolve. You did what you did for a reason.

Be it in sales or any walk of life, you stand for something (or should) and you have hopes and dreams. Letting someone else tell you that you are nothing or no good or a loser and allowing that to be the reason you quit trying is tragic. We all have something to give to the world. Someone, somewhere will be touched by, benefit from or heed your words of wisdom. For every great thing you put out there into the world and for every hundred people that love you, there will be those who hate for no reason, condemn you without justification or rip you anonymously to try to erode your confidence. Don’t ever let them.

We have one life to live, one shot at this thing we call existence. Make it count, every single day and in every way. You owe it to yourself and to others.

Take the hits, absorb and learn from them and keep moving forward. It all happens for a reason; one you may not learn for a long time. But someday you will look back and realize it was all worth it. And you’ll have no regrets. Because you went for it.

All the best and, as always, make it a great day!
