My wife taught me this. One evening a couple of years ago, as I was leaving to give a presentation to an audience of professionals, I said to her that I hoped I would do a good job. “Just be yourself,” she told me.

The affect on me was amazing, and it resulted in the best presentation I had given up to that time, and the response from the audience showed it.

This message is short and simple, because that’s all it needs to be, just like the one that Nicole gave to me that day.

Whatever you have learned, whatever information, skills and knowledge you have, whatever the intentions and vision and goals you set, in the end there is you.

Be you, just you, authentically you, and the world will be a better place. And you can’t get better than that.

In Peace and Love
