What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? I check my cellphone to see if I can snooze for five more minutes.
Tell me about a time you did the right thing and no one saw you do it. Saved water while showering. It was the right thing to do, but nobody saw me!
What do you worry about, and why? Complacency. It's a silent killer.
How do you define success and how do you measure up to your own definition? I believe that success is excelling at something which you are passionate about. There is no success unless you love and are loved by your inner circle of family and friends. Success is wisdom, success is knowing we are all flawed but loveable. Success is peace of mind, which comes from being the best you are capable of becoming. I am a work in progress, working towards being successful.
Would you rather be liked or respected? Respected.
