Discipline and resilience.
Work ethic and attitude.
Meeting new people.
Having new experiences.
These are just some things that will help shape not only the life you want to live, but the career path you continue to go down.
Do you wake up in the morning excited to go to work?
If not, why?
Do you have an answer?
There is no reason to be living a life that doesn’t suit you or make you happy.
The first thing to realize is that things don’t work out unless you make them.
You are the person in charge of your life. Be willing to take risks. Learn to get into the habit of doing the hard things that need to be done to change your path to get you where you want to go in life and in your career.
“You are only one decision away from a whole different life…and a lot of people won’t make that decision.” – Lee Cockerell
This episode will encourage you to (re)condition yourself to be wired to take risks and live on the edge- to go after the things that you want in your life.
Our guest, Lee Cockerell shares his insight from years of experience learning and growing not only his storied career in the hospitality industry, but also his growth as a person. Lee continues to enlighten people on how their experiences and what they’re wiling to do to make the changes they need to in order to get where they want to go is the guiding light throughout their life and career.
Listen to the conversation:
What You Will Learn
- The importance of exposure and how making connections and putting yourself out there will attract the experiences you need to advance your career
- Being willing to take the risks and doing the hard work to have the payoff at the end is always worth it
- How having resilience, a good attitude, looking professional, and behaving like the job that you want to have one day will help you get where you want to be
- If you don’t spend the time planning the life you want, you’re probably going to live the life you don’t want
