Invest in the process, not the outcome

Be fearless in the pursuit of your dreams

Give others the courage to follow their dreams
“I ask leaders to share their “inner Mount Everest”. If leaders can share how they climbed up the mountain, what got them to the top, and especially the hazards they faced on the way – it would help create an environment that is more open and authentic.”

Aparna Piramal Raje, Leadership Expert, and Best-selling Author

Stop trying to do everything!
“Wearing the “superwoman” cape reduces your ability to be vulnerable, to share, and to think because you are constantly stressed about proving.”

Only you decide what limits you

Happiness is a choice
“80% of our happiness depends on our perspective, our choices. When you are feeling trapped, ask yourself what are you focusing on. What can you be grateful for? Every situation can be reframed.”

Hard work above everything else
