By and large, tolerance is a good trait. The differences we encounter enrich our lives and organizations. But to attain a successful life and meaningful leadership, we must refuse to tolerate the things that deplete, and ultimately destroy, us.
Start by declaring these things intolerable in yourself and those around you–and see what changes as a result.
Living an honest life allows you to be at peace with others and yourself. Dishonesty imposes a false reality on your life and those around you.
Successful people are generally exploring something new. Life is too short for inactivity and staying in your comfort zone.
It’s easy, and a constant temptation, to settle for less. But what makes some people stand out is their willingness to make the hard choices that allow a life of greatness.
Every negative thought keeps you from being your best. If you hear yourself complaining, out loud or to yourself, find a way to shut it down.
