I've learned a lot over the past couple of months in my career and in life. I've had many great mentors in my life (I've been very lucky)and most recently I have had the great opportunity to look up to someone that was helping me find my path. He always told me inspirational stories and "case studies" that I could learn from. Every story had something behind it that I could take away and I appreciated all of them.
He told me this quote that he always refers back to by Steve Jobs. "For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today. And whenever the answer has been no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something...almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose."
I appreciate his honestly, trustworthiness, encouragement and friendship. Having a mentor that is very frank with you is uplifting. He encourages me to be the best that I can be. He gave me the best compliment that my public relations ability comes naturally and I'm one of the best that he's worked with. What a compliment! Sincerely, thank you!
