Be Humble & Be Hungry

BE HUMBLE – Don’t think you know it all. See yourself as a life-long learner who is always seeking ways to learn, grow & improve. See everyone as a teacher & learn from everyone you meet. Be open to new ideas & strategies to take your life, school & work to the next level. When people tell you that you are great don’t let it go to your head. And when they tell you that you stink, don’t let it go to your head. Be kind to everyone & let people know that they matter. Live with humility because the minute you think you have arrived at the door of greatness it will get shut in your face. Humility doesn’t mean you think less of yourself. It just means you think of yourself less.

BE HUNGRY – Follow your passion, continuously improve & continue to dream. Seek out new ideas, new strategies & new ways to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Invest the time, energy, sweat & dedication to be your best & let God do the rest. Be willing to pay the price that greatness requires. Don’t be average. Strive to be great. Become the hardest worker you know. Love the process & you’ll love what the process produces. Decide to leave a legacy. Even at a young age it’s important to think about what legacy you want to leave because knowing how you want to be remembered helps you decide how to live today. Don’t focus on where you’ve been. Focus on where you are & where you are going. Make your life & work a quest for excellence. Every day ask how I can be better today than I was yesterday? Make your next work your best work. Regardless of your age, education or career status, if you stay Humble & Hungry everything else will take care of itself.
