About a month ago, I set up a lunch meeting with my powerhouse agent, Jules Newmark to go over my career goals for 2016. Unexpectedly, this simple lunch meeting turned into a journey of finding greatness.
Side note: Jules and I have worked together and been friends for over nine years. She has been a solid anchor in my modeling career and is truly one of the best people I know. (Love you Jules:)
At the meeting, Jules pretty much changed my life! As we started chowing down on some yummy vegan food, she told me about an inspiring podcast she just started; The School of Greatness by Lewis Howes.
The School of Greatness is a podcast hosted by Lewis Howes, former pro-athlete turned author and lifestyle entrepreneur. On the show, Lewis interviews all sorts of influential, successful people on how they’ve found greatness. They share their knowledge, inspiring stories, habits, practices and tips that have led them to their success. Basically, each guest is fascinating and encouraging in it’s own way!
Greatness is living life outside of your comfort zone! -Lewis Howes
After listening to my first TSOG pod guest, I felt inspired and motivated. As I continued to listen to different guests, I noticed how happy and positive it made me feel.
Fast forward to last week, Jules changed my life again (told you she was amazing!) She set up a small seminar for all her models, hosted by none other than Lewis Howes. It was a night of personal development, being grateful for what we have, breaking out of our shells and envisioning our dreams as reality. Lewis was confident, engaging, inspiring, thoughtful and kind. It was an unforgettable night I will cherish and be grateful for forever.
Surround yourself with people who have dreams, desire and ambition; They’ll help you push forward, and realize your own.
Some of my favorite interviews from TSOG podcast:
We also go his new book, The School of Greatness: A Real-World Guide to Living Bigger, Loving Deeper and Leaving a Legacy.
I’ve been told that it’s kinda like a master book to inspire and encourage you to find your greatness. I’m excited to start reading it and will definitely update y’all with a book review. You can check it out here and just FYI it’s gotten 5 stars from 354 reviewers…pretty darn great:)
A journey of finding greatness is constant and ever-changing. As life happens, the journey changes. Be open, be positive, be hungry and most importantly, be great!
I hope y’all have an inspiring week,
