Your actions shape the life you live

Don’t underestimate your ability to become more than you are now. As Jim Rohn says “If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.”

You can decide to take a different path. One simple decision in the right direction can be all you need for a total life redesign.

As you set out today, remember that you can craft what your life looks like according to the actions you take. Be intentional in the way you live your days.

How to doom your career prospects: be rude, crude, and vulgar

Choose tact and kindness graphicOutside of maybe a career in comedy, you don’t want to be the one that is known for not being able to handle yourself in a professional manner. Rude, crude, and or using vulgar language will not serve you well professionally.

This isn’t directed at anyone in particular. If you think I’m talking about someone specifically, well you’re wrong. I’m addressing what I am unfortunately seeing a lot more of in the marketplace.

However, I’m not writing this advice for them…
