Tomorrow morning, I hop on a plane to head back home after a few amazing, full, and paradigm-shifting days. I’ve been in Nashville for the past few days, attending Jeff Goins’ inaugural session of Tribe Intensive, an amazing marketing workshop, as well as hosting a mastermind-style intensive of my own. Because I’m tired, I’m keeping the recap short and focused:
- People matter. When you treat them like they matter, they blossom. Sometimes the only difference you can make on the world is starting the ripple effect of letting them know they do.
- When people hurt you, they still matter. Don’t get your feathers ruffled, don’t get defensive, just keep letting them know they matter. Maybe, eventually they’ll soften.
- Try to make a habit of seeing the good in others before they show you the bad. The ugly stuff we do to each other is sometimes just a defensive knee-jerk reaction to an assumption that we’re all out to hurt each other.
- Abundance mentality breeds abundance. Surround yourself with people who are willing to give, and keep giving.
It’s all easier said than done, I know. But so worth the effort of trying.
