“Don’t seek out normal. Seek out functional. Seek out successful. Seek out happy. To do that, you have to find what works for you, never what you think is supposed to work for people in general. Don’t look to others to show you what you are supposed to be.”
This week’s WoW (Words of Wisdom) come from Bethenny Frankel. I enjoyed her book A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life far more than I thought I would. I was expecting to find it shallow and eyeroll-inducing (I was reading it for brain candy)… instead, I found myself agreeing with the principles she discussed and making several highlights in my Kindle, including the above quote. Plus, I respect the grit and raw fortitude she’s used to accomplish her business goals. She doesn’t back down from a challenge.
