When it comes to potential business partners, employees, or anyone else I’m considering connecting with or hiring, the top three things I look for are: attitude, energy, and effort. Don’t get me wrong – having talent is important to an extent, but time and time again, I’ve found these three traits to be FAR more indicative of someone’s success than the gifts we were born with.
If you’re able to add positive energy into the rooms you walk into rather than sucking the joy out of them, you’ll naturally begin to attract the life you want. And if you can extract the positive aspects from the adversity you’ll inevitably face, as our guest today will explain, your dreams will always be within reach. Today, I’m excited to share this eye-opening conversation with the super inspiring Inky Johnson with you all!
