"The big picture doesn't just come from the distance; it also comes from time."
We all have our moments where we scream to the sky, “Why?! Why did I say that really idiotic thing to that hot guy?" Wait, you don’t do that? Neither do I.
...OK, I totally have. I mean, I think we can all agree that we aren’t all 100 percent confident 100 percent of the time, right?
Sometimes it’s a bad relationship, friendship, or your boss is such a total asswipe that you kind of want to send them an envelope full of glitter when they’re wearing their Sunday best. It’s cool, I get it. But it doesn’t always have to be that way.
We need to take charge of our lives by grabbing our inner strength by the balls and moving forward, making changes, and living life to the fullest. However, we can always use a little motivation.
That’s where Simon Sinek comes in. Simon is a British author living in the U.S. (with a slight accent, which makes his words sound even smarter!) and is a successful motivational speaker. Born in Wimbledon, England in 1973, as a child, he traveled and lived in Johannesburg, Africa, London, England, and Hong Kong.
He attended London's City University where he studied law bug he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Anthropology from Brandeis University. This guy can do it all!
On his personal site Start With Why, he states, "Described as 'a visionary thinker with a rare intellect,' Sinek teaches leaders and organizations how to inspire people. With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home every day feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to inspire people to do the things that inspire them."
