I have a confession: I’m pushy AF. I push my inner circle, my team, my mother, and mostly…I push myself. I push so hard because my greatest desire in life is to see my people WIN. I want us to win in spaces we aren’t even supposed to be in. We know the game isn’t set up for us to win. Therefore, we have to move differently. Oftentimes that requires a significant push. Pushing will make people uncomfortable. I push anyway. As we wrap up 2018, I’m calling on you to join me…PUSH. Push your friends, push your partner, push young people, push your co-workers, but mostly…push yourself. Our path to winning is typically longer, harder and met with insane scrutiny. It’s BS. But F-it, let’s push each other and WIN anyway. 💪🏾🌟#MotivationalMonday #PushyAF #PushAnyway #WinAnyway #PushToThePolls #PrettyPowerful #UseAllYourGifts #CostOfDisruption #YouWinWeAllWin #CollectiveWins
