The Middle Bits:

What’s your #1 tip for a fulfilled life?

Gratitude. Be grateful for what you have because somebody else out there is dying for what you have.

Is there a person you could mention, a coach or mentor or someone that has helped you or inspired you along the way since 1820?

A couple of modern day mentors that are investing their time in me

What’s the main thing you think that you’ve learned since school that they don’t teach in school?

They don’t teach coping mechanism

If there’s a word you could choose that would set your intention for the next 12 months, what would that word be?


Key Takeaways:

  • Don’t take anybody for granted because they can’t be there any longer
  • Have an attitude of gratitude
  • There is a difference between hearing and listening
  • The learning doesn’t stop until after the education
  • Things happen for you not to you
