“It’s very easy to say ‘I don’t have time for this’ or ‘I’m too stressed and busy for that.’ And if you really dig down deep, you go through the components of that THRIVE mindset, you’ll find that those problems are part of a journey to a bigger and better you. It’s very easy to relate with that mindset, but if you can rise above it, you can accomplish amazing things and make the absolute best of your career and have a tremendous impact on other people.”
