I was told once that I don’t look good in red.
I was also told that cilantro tastes gross.
And I was also told that I couldn’t make it as a successful keynote speaker.
All three of those statements are total, complete bunk.
How many times have we limited ourselves because of some off-handed (or purposeful) comment made by another? Have you ever been told that you can’t do something just because someone else couldn’t? Do you make assumptions about your future based on hearsay? Have you ever said no to wearing that outfit, eating that meal, or pursuing your dream career because of the ramblings of a small-minded ninny?
As we head into the new year, please do yourself a favor and make a resolution that you won’t allow assumptions to dampen your light. Wear red. Eat cilantro. Go after that which you crave. Be the best version of you. The world needs it.
