Most of us are naturally wired to avoid loneliness and rejection - but we’re not actually doing ourselves a favor.

Show Highlights

[3:30] Childhood plays a big part in shaping out who you can become, and it doesn’t always come through playdates and games. 

[8:25] Sometimes you have to do things you hate, to realize what you really like and don’t like. Quitting doesn’t always equate to failing. 

[9:00] Seeing hardships and feeling inferior to the people you’re surrounded with can still teach you important life lessons: the value of money and the feeling of contentment and gratitude.  

[15:00] Even when you feel like you don’t fit in, that situation can ignite your purpose and jumpstart your success. 

[21:45] It doesn’t matter if you’re incredibly talented or not, you will never fail if you work hard and get thick-skinned with rejection. 

[23:00] You don’t have to become the “ideal” in your role. You will still wind up to who you are meant to be when you embrace your individuality and independence, knowing who you truly are at your core. 

[28:45] Whether or not you learn it in school, it is important to fully express yourself through your passion. It’s one thing that will set you apart and doesn’t require skills. 

[36:40] Find activities that make you happy and fire you up - then don’t be afraid of taking risks. You will eventually end up on the right path.
