On day one, I presented the incoming company members with the directive, Live a Great Story.
I simply asked, “What does this mean to you?” Their responses, so authentic and introspective, launch our year-long journey of discovery.
“Write my story.”
“I want to live my life like a story, make it beautiful and amazing. I want my life to be as clean as the Earth after rain. I want to make good decisions and be a good example.”
“Follow your heart. Nobody can tell you what you can or can’t do. If you make a mistake, it’s okay. The good thing instead of giving up, is that you learn from your mistakes.”
“Be YOU and live your life.”
“It is your life. No one can tell you how to live it because there are no instructions.”
“You have to trust your mind and heart.”
“Life is kind of like your book and every day is a new page in your book.”
“I can do better.”
“Live a happy life as beautiful as you want it to be. Nobody can stop your imagination. Keep on going, be strong and believe in yourself.”
“Having fun and not having something bad happen.”
“Change what you did in the past and make it better.”
“Live your dreams.”
“If your life is hard, try to do something that makes you happy.”
