5 Minutes That Changed My Professional Life

                     This clip helped me make some professional changes, something I'm beyond grateful for.

"Do the best work you can and find the courage to put your work out there and know that, no matter what you do, some people are going to like it and some people aren’t. All you can really control is how you feel about what you’ve contributed. {sentence edited out}  People will find a million reasons to tear it down, so you have to be really sure about what you’re doing, because in the end, if you believe in it that’s enough.”   

Brene Brown, interview in The Guardian


I found this Brene Brown talk quite by accident (lucky me!). It was a 22 minute talk and absolutely empowering and profound from start to finish. The 5 minutes  you're about to watch truly gave me the courage to take a stand and make some changes in my life professionally. I hope you'll take 5 minutes and watch this. Be sure your speakers are on.

Here's the link for the entire talk:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-JXOnFOXQk  If you watch the whole thing,  I'd really like to know what you think about it.
