Welcome to #TheDailyYes. The idea is simple- we are sharing some of the quotes, phrases, and pearls of wisdom that have helped us throughout the years.
A few simple words can completely change the way a person thinks about things. A person’s success, self-worth, and impact on the world can be completely attributed to the way he or she thinks about things.

When I make a plan with my team or consulting clients, I make sure that the markers are what we want and not driven by outside influences, especially people or other brands. I always thought that people grew out of the competitive, high-school mentality, but some people get stuck in ‘tit for tat-mode’ for the better part of their lives. The rest of us just have tendencies that can be worked out with intention.
