“ People who are aspiring to be in the service industry, we just got to remember that the successes that we help people get, aren’t our successes, they are their successes and then we can just be thankful and hopeful that we were part of their successes” (39:10)

“Just acknowledge that…I’m not really the person in the spotlight… but how we help people get back into their own spotlight, that’s really what matters” (51:20)

“We constantly  live in the pendulum of ‘am I making myself happy?’  Am I making people around me happy?’ And I think that pendulum swings back and forth and we get in trouble when it stays swinging on one side more often than the other” (45:29)

“We have to appreciate why we need to practice a movement, before we are going to do it purposefully” (1:10:25)

This episode is perfect for anyone looking for a nice reminder to honor your values. Don’t be scared to take the lead. Recognize that true leadership & success does not come from focusing on ourselves, rather it comes from shining the light onto others.
