  • Why you CAN’T always get what you want. Your immediate reaction to unfulfilled expectations, whether you show it or not, is always disappointment. What if we got traded those expectations that we have no control over into appreciation. We would be so much happier if we appreciated the things that we have and that is always present, rather than expecting something else and not getting that.
  • Why you need to take advantage of the Coronavirus fast-track. The virus while devastating has forced the consumer’s hand to use tools that they wouldn’t normally rely on, and that has accelerated our economy for the future. The greatest part is that people are going to continue to rely on these new tools because they are experiencing how revolutionary they are, and you can use that to your advantage.
