When I was 13 years old, I wrote a book called,
My Life in 15 Years
. It was a 30-page clip-art riddled manifesto, detailing every element of my future 28 year old life. It included such predictions as:
My favorite clothing store (The Limited,
. It’s the grown-up version of Limited Too!)
My husband (my first boyfriend at the time…which is now my
My favorite color (it was red…now it’s blue)
My career as a world famous actress
I thought I had it ALL figured out. If 13 year old Brittany knew that one day
my passions would shift away from acting
and I would experience a myriad of other careers (from working at a talent agency, an event planning company, a restaurant development firm, a market research group – you name it!), I think she would have fainted right there on the spot.
Soultiply was just a blip on a distant imagination.
But there has been one key element that has remained steadfast throughout the many passions and career changes. Something that hits you when you least expect it – in the most
workout DVD a few years ago for Christmas. It’s been collecting dust on my shelf, (Why bother with workout DVDs when there’s millions of free workouts on
!?) but I finally decided to give it a whirl.
And let me tell you, holy moly great balls of fire! That DVD kicks my ass! I have to practice Lamaze as I try to walk down the stairs or sit on the toilet – my whole body aches with soreness.
Considering it’s called “30 Day Shred”, I imagine Jillian designed this workout to be completed in 30 consecutive days.
But that’s where I draw the line.
Call me a big loser, but when I recognize stress, I
that my body needs time to rest and recoup. Because rest plays an important role not only in our physical lives, but our mental and spiritual lives as well.
Your friends can be a huge blessing to you and your professional success, but it takes a
of friendship to make that positive switch. Not everyone can be a friend with (BUSINESS!) benefits…
Over the past several days, we’ve been climbing up the business/friendship ladder. We learned how to navigate the oftentimes rough relationship troubles with the
, we’ve supported the scattered dreams of our
friends, and we’ve thanked the many
that keep us motivated and inspired to do our best.
But do you know the type of personal relationship that brings the MOST business success?
