"Supporting others' dreams over your own is a recipe for regret"
Good Morning Folks,
It's the end of another solid week of progress at FSO. I am so proud of our team. How you go the extra mile, and of how you bend over backwards to deliver the full "white-Glove" treatment.
As we head into the weekend, remember that everything we want to achieve is in our grasp! Everything we dream about can happen. We just have to have the conviction to go get it. We have to have the heart to make it happen and the desire to put forth the effort.
Here's today's dose of Friday inspiration. It's one of those advice columns you bookmark and will refer back to it many times, and whenever you need a "lift".
1. Not traveling when you had the chance.
Traveling becomes infinitely harder the older you get, especially if you have a family and need to pay the way for three-plus people instead of just yourself.
2. Not learning another language.
You’ll kick yourself when you realize you took three years of language in high school and remember none of it.
3. Staying in a bad relationship.
No one who ever gets out of a bad relationship looks back without wishing they made the move sooner.
4. Forgoing sunscreen.
Wrinkles, moles, and skin cancer can largely be avoided if you protect yourself.
5. Missing the chance to see your favorite musicians.
“Nah, dude, I’ll catch Nirvana next time they come through town.” Facepalm.
6. Being scared to do things.
Looking back you’ll think, What was I so afraid of?
7. Failing to make physical fitness a priority.
Too many of us spend the physical peak of our lives on the couch. When you hit 40, 50, 60, and beyond, you’ll dream of what you could have done.
8. Letting yourself be defined by gender roles.
Few things are as sad as an old person saying, “Well, it just wasn’t done back then.”
9. Not trying harder in school.
It’s not just that your grades play a role in determining where you end up in life. Eventually you’ll realize how neat it was to get to spend all day learning, and wish you’d paid more attention.
10. Not realizing how beautiful you were.
Too many of us spend our youth unhappy with the way we look, but the reality is, that’s when we’re our most beautiful.
11. Being afraid to say “I love you.”
When you’re old, you won’t care if your love wasn’t returned — only that you made it known how you felt.
12. Not listening to your parents’ advice.
You don’t want to hear it when you’re young, but the infuriating truth is that most of what your parents say about life is true.
13. Spending your youth self-absorbed.
You’ll be embarrassed about it, frankly.
14. Caring too much about what other people think.
In 20 years you won’t give a damn about any of those people you once worried so much about.
Thank you for all the amazing communications of late, which inspire me, and I promise to keep the inspiration at FSO at the highest levels possible.
I am excited because I know that FSO is better. I have visited competitive sites, FSO sites and in-house sites in the past week, and we are the best!
Nothing is going to stop us. You are the right people at the right time to make something great. So have NO regrets, and let’s make 2016 our best yet.
Have a Happy, Healthy, Safe and Refreshing Weekend,
