In the world I envision, we share what’s really going on in our lives instead of putting up a front.
We reveal our weaknesses instead of pretending we’re good at everything. We ask for help when we need it instead of letting ego get in the way. We admit our screwups instead of fearing we’ll lose our jobs over them. We have the courage to share our ideas instead of thinking we’ll be judged for them. We address conflict head-on instead of pretending it’s always rainbows and butterflies. We encourage people to move on and chase their dreams instead of viewing departures as failures. We trust people to do their jobs instead of micromanaging them. We take risks instead of operating from fear. We support people when they don’t reach their goals instead of abandoning them. We show up as who we really are instead of someone we’re pretending to be.
That’s the kind of world I want my future children to live in. I want it so much that I spend more time onstage than I do with my family, team, and company. But I do it because I know it’s what I’ve been called to do. I believe in my message with every ounce of my being, and I intend to live my life sharing it with all who will listen.
