Enjoy the journey and be relentless in your pursuits. Most of all, never be afraid to think BIG.
Do not downplay what you are passionate about, especially around others. Making that mistake is easy because we are often not where we plan to be as it pertains to our goals and we want to be “realistic” or we defer to being “too polite.”
Making what you are trying to accomplish feel “smaller” is extremely counter productive. Not only does it put that thought in your head – it puts it in the head of the person engaging with you. If you unsure about what you are doing or lack confidence, they will feel, see, and hear it tenfold.
The positivism, passion, and belief you create within yourself, what you are doing, and what you are about is far more important and powerful than you may realize.
