- Women can be harsh critics towards other women, and harsh critics to themselves. With all that criticism going around, we are making a lot of assumptions about how other women see us. One of the most impactful things Sara has done is quit saying anything negative about any other human being, circumstance or herself. She found that this created opportunities for her in relationships and work when she decreased this negativity. Sara wants us to give up the gossip!
- Sara shares some of her success secrets like journaling forward. Instead of journaling about her day, she journaled about the day that she was going to have in five years. She is also very selective on the thoughts that she allows herself to have, that she puts into action.
- You find your own voice by believing that what you have to share is significant, it matters, you might not see the impact right away but you need to trust that what you’re doing if it comes from the right place is useful.
