Creating an Amazing Personal Culture

There’s a famous concept that is often used in business, in teams, and in other organizations that says that when it comes to success, culture is way more important than strategy.

When it comes to accomplishing your own dreams and creating results in your own life, this idea is just as true. It’s easy to focus your energy and effort on the “strategies” and all the things you need to do. But what if your personal, internal culture has a much greater impact on your success than any of the things you do?

In today’s episode of the podcast, I’m inviting you to evaluate your own personal, internal environment and I’m sharing five keys to creating an amazing personal culture: vision, vulnerability, buy in, belief, and love. 

When you ask yourself to grow and change and do new things, strategy will only get you so far and you can’t ever outwork a toxic culture. Instead, you need to build a strong, supportive internal culture that allows you to do hard things, try brand new things, and keep going no matter what. 



Welcome to the 100% Awesome Podcast with April Price. You might not know it, but every result in your life is 100% because of the thoughts you think. And that, my friends, is 100% awesome.

Hello podcast universe, welcome to episode 248 of the 100% Awesome Podcast! I'm April Price. I'm your host and your coach for a few minutes today, and I am so happy that you're here. How are you? How are you here? It's the first day of February 2024. I hope that you are awesome. We made it to February, that's good news, right? And I hope things are amazing for you. Just to give you a quick little update on my life, for those of you that are following along at home the other day my husband asked me like how I felt my goals were going for this year and I had to be honest and say, well, I think it's about 50/50, right? Like, I think I've been 50% successful and 50% failing or, well, at least 50% needs improvement, right? So that's what I'm kind of working on now.

I have officially started training for a couple of big athletic events that I'm doing later in this year. I might have told you, I am doing a marathon with my kids in June, and then Caleb and I are going to be doing 29029 again in September. And as I've started that training, my brain is just protesting vehemently, right? It does not want to do it. It does not want to do any of it. And I had my first "quote unquote" long run on Saturday, which was not very long, honestly.

I made it six miles and my brain was telling me that running is the worst thing ever and that we should just quit now and avoid all the suffering ahead of us. But anyway, I'm on the way there in that area, and as far as dry January went, you might have heard me talk about taking a really intentional break from being on my phone all the time, and so I established these rules for January to really limit the amount of time I was on there, and I felt like I did a really good job keeping that commitment to myself and actually has been such an amazing experience. And honestly, one of the best things that I've ever done, I think. So, I am continuing that for the foreseeable future, at least until my birthday in April, and then maybe we'll reevaluate. But I feel like it's been such a long time since I was this calm and centered and content, and so I am really enjoying the quiet. I am sleeping so much better. I'm getting way more done during the day and I'm enjoying my life so much more. So, that has been awesome. And then as far as my two really big goals this year, learning to surf and writing a book, it's been a slow start.

I'll be honest, I haven't made as much progress as I would like, and so I have been working through my brain's resistance with my coach there. And I'm gonna I'll tell you a little bit more about that as we go through the episode today. But today's episode is inspired by an idea that I heard actually at church the other day. Doesn't have anything to do with church, really, but that's where I heard it. And the man that was speaking was referencing a concept that is taught by Peter Drucker, who is a business and management guy.

He's a consultant and a thought leader, and apparently he has a pretty famous quote that says culture eats strategy for breakfast. Uh, which means, like, you might have all kinds of amazing business strategies in place, but the culture of your business, the culture is going to trump whatever strategy you have every time, like the culture you develop inside your business, is really what's going to move the needle and really determine whether or not you are able to be successful. And as I was thinking about that, it reminded me of, of course, a lot of the talk on ESPN and sports radio right now as commentators are trying to analyze the football playoffs and figure out, you know, kind of the strengths and the weaknesses of each team and the game plans that each team should have going into the conference championships and into the Super Bowl. And over and over and over, they acknowledge, like it's not just about talent. It's not just about like individual player ability.

And it's not even about game strategy necessarily, that in fact, it really comes down to the culture of the team, the culture of winning inside the team and you know, the feeling within that team, the camaraderie, the teamwork, the love, the trust, like what they've built together, that culture that exists inside the locker room, within that team. That culture is really what makes the difference in winning. And, you know, they're always talking about culture trumps strategy. So, it's like kind of the same idea. And then I was thinking about over the holidays, we went and saw the movie The Boys in the boat. And maybe some of you have seen it or more likely, read the book. I know a lot of people read the book, but of course it's about this rowing team, the university. Of Washington's rowing team. And, you know, as they start to develop and they have this quest to win gold at the 1936 Olympics. And, you know, the coaches were talking about, like, how you can have all kinds of talent in the boat, and you can have the best and the fastest and the strongest individual rowers in the boat.

But it doesn't matter if they can't work together, that the culture within that boat and the willingness to sacrifice for each other, the willingness to like, give it everything they have for each other. And, you know, also their ability to like, read one another what what each one is going through and work for each other and help each other and trust each other that that culture in the boat, like what they have together, matters so much more than strategy or talent. And so, like over the over the last week or so, I've been thinking a lot about this idea in terms of my own individual goals and dreams and the things that I want to create in my life this year, because I think it's really natural whenever we are working towards anything in our lives, like any goal, any dream, any outcome or result or any creation in our life, we almost always focus on strategy.

Almost always focus on what we need to do, what we need to make happen, what actions we need to take in order to achieve that thing. But today, I really want to offer you the idea that way. More important than your strategy is culture, your personal culture, your internal personal culture as you go to create these things in your life. Like, I want you to think for a minute about what is happening inside of you as you work towards your goals. What is that culture like? What is that environment inside of you like? Like, are you fighting with yourself? Are you frustrated with yourself? Are you like throwing blame around, right? Like. Or are you rooting for yourself? Are you helping yourself? Are you working hard for yourself? Are you able to trust yourself and rely on yourself? Like, do you have a culture of positivity inside of you and possibility and vision? And do you know where you want to go and and do you have that like culture of belief inside of you, or is there instead a lot of internal criticism or fault finding or doubt or like even just disparaging remarks, right?

Do you have a culture that gives you an advantage as you work towards these things that you want, and are you nurturing that culture and prioritizing it even above your strategy and the actions that you are trying to take? Because if we don't purposely manage our brain and our thoughts and our feelings, if we aren't, like actively managing that and, you know, insisting on the culture that we want, like when our brain is running the show, it can just be really easy to have a toxic internal culture.

Like just so much fault finding and criticism and doubt, right? And that makes reaching our goals and dreams and creating a life we love really, really hard. All right, so I want you to think about is that good strategy cannot overcome bad culture. So, like we we make all kinds of plans and set goals. And then we have this like toxic culture inside our own head. And our plans and strategies are never enough to overcome that bad culture. And that is just as true inside of you as it is in any team or organization. Okay, so like when it comes to an organization, culture is like generally understood as like all of the beliefs and values and attitudes that are shaping that organization, right? And how all of those things, their beliefs, their values, their attitudes, those thoughts and feelings, how those are influencing and motivating and driving the actions of all the people within the organization.

And when you're trying to create an effective team, what you're trying to do is create an environment that reflects your organization, your team's values and like empowers everybody on the team to do their best work. So, when I talk about internal culture, I'm talking about looking at your own beliefs and values and attitudes, your own thoughts and feelings, and are they creating an environment that is allowing you to succeed, that environment that you're living in day in and day out? Is that internal culture allowing you to show up in your life in a way you want to, and in a way that allows you to do your best work even when things are hard? So that's what I want to talk about today. Have you think and consider for a moment and sort of evaluate your own internal environment, your own internal culture. And I want to give you five ways that will really help improve that internal culture inside of you. The five things are vision, vulnerability, buy in belief and love. Okay, so we're going to talk about all five of these. And I think they'll really help you develop and create a really awesome internal culture.

Okay, so first vision, in order to have the courage and the persistence and the commitment to like, change that internal culture inside of you. You have to have a vision about where you're going and why, right? It's not just about doing things differently. It's not just about taking different action. It's about having a vision of who you want to be and seeing yourself differently. Right when you are trying to do something new and create new patterns and new accomplishments or do things differently in your life, you have to let go of your old ideas about yourself. You have to let go of your old vision, your old stories about who you are and what you were capable of. And you have to let yourself believe a new vision to create a new story about you. And whether it's in a company or a team or, you know, even in a country having a different vision of what's possible for you is really critical to changing that culture. All right. So when it comes to your own internal culture, I want you to first notice your current vision and the stories that make up that vision.

What are the stories that you have been telling yourself about yourself, right? Are you telling the story of where you are going? Or you just like rehashing the story of where you have been, right, like left to its own devices? That's all my brain does, is like, let me tell you who you were. Instead of thinking about who I want to be, and are you reminding yourself about what you want to do and what you want to create and where you want to go, or you constantly pointing out what you don't want to do and where you don't want to be right? Like our brain is constantly noticing what we don't want, but that doesn't give us any vision of where we are going. So, you need vision to be able to see yourself and what you're capable of differently. Like I've noticed as I've worked towards my two big goals this year, both surfing and writing, I've noticed that my brain keeps saying like, this is so stupid, right? Like, this is ridiculous. This isn't you. You're just pretending like. Like, this is ridiculous. I can't believe you're spending time and energy and money on any of this when this isn't really who you are.

You're not really capable of it, right? People who are writers or who are surfers have been doing it a long time. And like, they're so committed they can't not do it. And that's not you, right? You have to work at it. And that like it's just ridiculous, right? This week I was trying to find a surf camp that I could go to for a week because I'm like, what I really need is some time in the water with an instructor. Like, if I really want to like, learn how to do this, I want to do it for real, right. And so I was looking up these different surf camps, and my brain was just literally rolling its eyes at me and scoffing at me as I as I look these up. And I started emailing some of them, my brain was like, just like, you have got to be kidding me, right? This isn't who you are. This is so stupid, right? So I just noticed, like, how much courage it takes to, like, stand up to that and to have a different vision of yourself, right? Like, as long as I keep my vision on who I used to be, then I can't be something else.

I was recently reminded of this story about Noelle Pike's pace, and this is like an old story. But if you remember, like she was an Olympic skeleton racer and the skeleton is that race on the ice track or the bobsled track where you just, like, are literally on this little tiny board that's like the size of a cookie sheet, right? And and you just, like, headfirst go down this track at like 90 miles an hour, right? And you just basically steering this little, like, sled with your shoulders and, like, little tiny movements in your legs. Anyway, she won the silver medal in this event in 2014. And she has this saying where she says where you look is where you go. And she told this story about like two years after she started competing in skeleton and she had made the World Cup team, she was on her first trip outside of the US. She had never competed outside the US and they were in Altenberg, Germany. She was the youngest one on this World Cup team and she was like feeling like a rookie, right? And she's Altenberg, Germany. The first time they're they're at this track and everybody's like, oh, this is one of the hardest tracks there is, right? And everyone on the team kept telling her what not to do and what to be careful of.

And like when you go into turn four, don't do this. And when you go into turn nine, don't do this right. And then one of the people there kept telling her, whatever happens, don't get in the ambulance, right? She said the first German word she learned was Kronk and Vagn. Right. Nine Kronk in London, meaning no ambulance. Don't get in the ambulance. She's like, they didn't have a hospital. They didn't have a medical clinic. All they had was a vet. So the people in the team just told her, like, don't get in the ambulance, right. Nine Kronk and forget. And so she was there in the start house and she's like, you know, trying to think about all the things not to do.

Don't get in the ambulance. Don't miss turn four, don't miss turn nine. And she just keeps thinking about all the things she's not supposed to do. And there's two girls who are veterans in front of her, and both of them crashed on their run. She's like, I was watching the clock also. And the clock stops and it comes this announcement that says, like, you know, we need an ambulance. And she hears the sirens, the sirens come. And then the second girl goes and the same thing happens. The sirens come. And so she's standing up at the top of this, and she's so scared, right. And all she could think about was like, okay, don't die.

Don't get in the ambulance, don't mess this up. So, anyway, her time finally comes. She starts down this track and she's trying to, like, instead of, like, running and jumping on her skeleton. She's just like, you know, a little bit timid as she's going around these things, and she still ends up flipping her, her skeleton, her little sled, like a couple of times. Right at the end of the run, there's these really tight curves where she says there's really intense G-forces, like 5 or 6 GS are on you, so it's really, really hard to lift your head, she said. As she's going around this turn and she's feeling these G-forces, she was like, I was just blind. Like my head was down just looking at the ice, and I was like, I've got to look up and see where I'm at. And so she lifts her eyes and all she can see is this wooden railing that's getting closer and closer, and she keeps thinking, don't hit the railing, don't hit the railing, don't hit the railing. And of course, she ends up hitting the railing, right? And she says, I was so focused on what not to do and where not to go.

And then my body just went straight there because she said, where you look is where you go. Whatever your vision is on, where whatever you're focused on. Wherever your eyes go, the rest of you follows, right? Her brain saw that obstacle and said, don't. But all that could happen was like following through on that vision. She saw the obstacle and that's where she went. So I want you to think about that. When you think about your vision and your internal culture, where you look is where you go.

Your brain wants to look backwards, or your brain wants to look where you are now, and you've got to look forward of where you want to be. Like whether you know it or not, what you concentrate on and what you think about your body is then going to follow through on. And so you need to have a vision that is always looking at where you want to go, not at where you don't want to go. And when you find your brain concentrating on where you don't want to be, you've got to have the discipline and the courage to focus your vision on where you want to go, who you want to be.

Okay. Next, vulnerability. When you are going to create a new internal culture, one of the most powerful things you can have is a willingness to try new things, a willingness to do things that you've never done before and to be bad at them. But most important, to have that healthy, powerful internal culture is you need that willingness to do new things and to be bad at them without treating yourself badly. Meaning you got to give yourself a chance to try and to be bad at it, and to not be critical of yourself and not give up on yourself and not let your doubts overcome you. So, I have a few examples of this. But last Saturday I was doing, like I said, my quote unquote long run, which is only six miles, right? And like, I'm supposed to be running a marathon in June. And when after I did that run, well, it was tough, right? And I was like, okay, it's fine. I just couldn't, you know, take it slow. I'll take it as slowly as I need to. And so then I was just looking up about the marathon and I found out, no, there's a time limit, right? There's a six hour time limit on the marathon.

Now, some of you might be like rolling your eyes already, because that sounds like a long time to you, right? And I guess, you know, technically it is. People run a sub two hour marathon. But for me, like, I was like all of a sudden my brain just started to panic, right? Like, what if I can't finish in six hours? What if, like, I don't make it, you know, to the end? What if I just can't get there in six hours? And it just felt super risky all of a sudden, right? That I was gonna look like a failure and I was actually going to fail, and it was not going to be able to finish because I wasn't going to be able to do it fast enough.

And so, like, my brain all of a sudden just started like backing out and saying like, well, maybe we should just do the half marathon, right? Because then at least for sure we can finish, right? Like maybe we're just like, are not capable of this and our brain just wants to back out, but notice it only wants to back out because it thinks if I fail, that that will be a bad thing. But what if it's not? What if I'm willing to be vulnerable and to be bad at it, and even to fail? Like the only real risk is what I'm going to say to myself if that happens.

And so, that's what I mean about being vulnerable. It's like I'm willing to try these new things and I'm willing to be bad at them. I'm even willing to fail. And no matter what happens, I'm promising myself that I am not going to be mean to myself about that. That I can be bad without treating myself badly. And that is so important. Making that commitment to yourself like that has to go hand in hand with that vulnerability. The same goes with the surfing and the writing. Like, I'm going on a trip with my husband next week and I signed up for surf lessons, and as soon as I signed up for them, my brain was like, oh my gosh, you're gonna look like an idiot.

You're not going to be able to even get on that board. You're going to spend an hour and a half with like an expert surfer, and they are just going to be like rolling their eyes with this, like middle aged white lady that doesn't know how to surf. Right. And my brain is like, you don't have the core strength, you don't have the balance, you're not strong enough. You are going to make a fool of yourself. Right? And it's like, maybe right. Maybe I should expect to be bad at this, actually, since I've never done it before. And vulnerability means like it's okay if I'm bad at it, I am not going to treat myself badly, and I am not going to tell myself that I am being a fool.

How you treat yourself when you're new and when you're bad at it. That is what is going to create a beautiful internal culture is how I treat myself. When it doesn't go well, when I'm not good at it, when I fail. Okay, number three is buy in. So when you are trying to change culture in an organization, you can't do it alone. You need buy in from everyone involved and they're always talking about this on sports radio. Like we need buy in from management and we need buy in from the players, and we need buy in from the coaching stuff like buy in from the fans, like they're always talking about this.

So, I think it can be powerful to think about buying into your own internal culture as well. And you might be thinking about April like, it's just me, right? Like what? Who do I need buy in from? It's just me and my brain, and my brain is not buying in. So like, no, no, your brain is not going to give you any buy in. Let me just assure you of that. Your brain is not going to buy in when it comes to your goals. But I like to think about getting approval and buy in and agreement with all the parts of me. So, I like to think about past me and present me and future me. And sometimes when we are making decisions about what we want to create in our life, we're only consulting future us. We're only talking to the person in the future that has that thing right. Future me wants a lot, a lot of things to be different, but future me doesn't ever have to do the work right. So, like, it's really easy to get buy in for the result, right? Like everybody wants the result. But what we need to do is get buy in for the work that is going to get us there for the discomfort that is going to get us there.

So, I think it can be really powerful to think about all the parts of you, get them all in a room, right, and have a meeting and come to some agreements and recognize that, like all of us here in this room, like I said, past us, present us, future us, we all have to participate and buy in to this goal. So what does that look like exactly? First of all, like to get buy in from past me. Like it really looks like not making past me wrong. Like sometimes the past versions of us just like get so much criticism, right? And we're mean and critical and we're just like, listen, if you had been different, then I wouldn't be where I'm at now. I'd be farther along, right? And that is not going to create a lot of buy in from all the parts of you. It's not going to help you move forward. It's never going to help you be brave and try new things. It's not going to let you dream and practice and be bad at things, because if we have that culture of being critical of our past selves, then we're going to be scared to take new action.

We're going to be scared that we're going to be critical again if we fail. So, we have an obligation there to not make our past self wrong, but to acknowledge, listen, they did so much to get us to where we are, and they did so much with the tools and thoughts that they had back then. And we need to appreciate and acknowledge the work that our past selves have done. Like when I wanted to be a different kind of parent, like thinking about my past self with a whole bunch of criticism and negativity, was not allowing me to have a new culture inside of me, and it wasn't allowing me to move forward and make different decisions. I had to make peace with the past versions of me that had done the best, that she knew how to do right. And so, I think that's a really important part of getting buy in is like making peace with the past you and appreciating them instead of criticizing them when it comes to present you and getting buy in from present you, I think it really requires you to not just look at the result, but to look at and be honest about the work that is going to be required. Because all the work and all the discomfort and all the negative feelings and all the dread and all of that is going to be experienced by the present version of you.

And you need to have an honest discussion with. Present you and ask yourself if you're willing to feel all those things. Are you willing to feel bad? Are you willing to do that work? Are you willing to feel what you're going to have to feel in order to reach this goal? So, for example, like future me, like really wants to be standing there with a completed book, right? But that means Present Me is going to feel uncomfortable and lost and unproductive sometimes, and scared and inadequate and confused and stupid and bored.

It's going to have to feel all these feelings as I go to create this, and it's really powerful to actually make a list of those things and get buy in from yourself. Am I willing to feel these negative feelings in order to create what I want? And really be willing to encourage myself in every present moment along the way, and not be critical that I'm feeling bad about it. And then with future You. Of course, I think it's really just important to have a contract to appreciate and acknowledge the work that you did to create it so many times. Future us like as soon as we get to the future and we've created that thing, our brain is like, okay, what's next? And we don't spend any time in the future appreciating ourselves and being grateful and and noticing all the work that we did and just instead requiring the next thing from ourselves. And so I think that's really important. Is it like a commitment to appreciate ourselves? And also, I spoke to this earlier, a commitment that no matter what the result is, I won't make myself wrong for it in the future. I won't be critical of myself.
The fourth key to creating an awesome internal culture is belief. So, I just think when it comes to your internal culture, that optimism matters. Believing in yourself matters. Believing in yourself even when you don't have any evidence, like just believing because you. Because you want to believe in yourself. And deciding that you aren't going to give up on yourself no matter what setbacks or obstacles you face. Like. It's a commitment to believing that you can have what you want and that if you don't quit and you don't stop, you will eventually, inevitably create what you want.

And I want to point out that one of the most important parts of any culture is language, right? Like language creates culture. Families have their own language, right? Countries, religious communities, companies, teams. Like we have our own language amongst each other. And so I want you to start thinking about the language inside of you, thinking about the words that are in your head, and setting a standard for positively talking to yourself. Right, like words are always our most powerful form of creation. And it's by the word that the worlds are and were created, and it's the same inside of you. And if you want an awesome internal culture, it matters what you say to yourself. Be inspiring instead of discouraging. Now, this doesn't mean that there's no place to recognize and acknowledge the hard, or the challenging or the difficult. It just means that you don't leave yourself there in the in the discouragement or even worse, pile on, right? Like I find myself feeling discouraged and then my brain piling on and being like, yeah, and you know what else you do bad at? You know what else is hard? And just like, piles on more negative thoughts about my capacity, my capability and my past and my regrets.

And it just like, you know, wants to, like, bury me under it. And so there's a moment there to, like, say, no, that's not how we're going to talk to ourselves. And I want you to think about talking to yourself like you talk to someone you love, right? You'd listen to them and you'd hear what's challenging and what's hard, and you'd listen to their worries and their concerns, and you would like, acknowledge the truth of that. And then, of course, you wouldn't leave them there. You would express your faith in them and your love for them, and your confidence in them, and your trust and your belief that they can overcome what's in front of them.

I heard this awesome quote and I might have already shared it here on the podcast, but it says that the antidote to negativity isn't positivity, it's warmth. And I want you to think about that in your internal culture, when your brain is negative and when you're just like recognizing, like, I have limitations and I'm not as good at this as I want to be in. And like this. This is harder than I thought it would be. And you have these negative thoughts like, you can meet all of those with warmth and recognize like, yeah, I hear you, but also I believe in you.

It's not a negation of the hard. It's an acknowledgement that the heart is real. But also you believe in yourself. You believe in your ability to overcome it. Okay. And that leads us really well into the last thing that I think will create an incredible internal culture. And that, of course, is love. Having love for yourself matters. It matters when it's hard and it helps you fight and keep going when things are challenging and overwhelming and scary.

You know, I talked about that run on Saturday, though. That felt incredibly hard, right? And it was like the whole time my brain was like, this is too hard. This is too hard, this is too hard. And I was just like meeting myself in those moments with love. I see you, I believe in you. I'm proud of you. I love you for doing this. And I asked myself, what do I need in order to get this done? And that's a question you can ask yourself, right? What do I need and how can I provide it for myself? Do I need empathy? Do I need acknowledgement? Do I need appreciation? Do I need confidence? I used all of those things on that run, and I think love is such an important component of accountability, too.

In any internal culture, you need a way to keep yourself accountable. And like, I really think you need to keep that accountability with love. And instead of being critical and like mad and frustrated at yourself, there's an invitation there. When you love yourself, you're going to be curious. You're going to ask yourself, what's going on for me? Why am I not showing up? What do I need? What am I feeling? Is there something that I need to change in the way that I'm thinking about myself or my goal? Like, one of the most valuable characteristics in any internal culture is love and trust.

We have to be able to trust each other. And that's true of yourself too. You have to be able to trust yourself that when things are hard and things aren't going well, and I'm and we're not showing up and maybe in the way that we want to, that we will meet ourselves with love. Like we erode that when we're critical of ourselves instead of curious about ourselves. Ultimately, you're trying to create a place that you want to go back to. I was thinking about I know I told you about this about a year ago. I was on a trip with my husband.

We were in Maui and we were on our way home. We'd been at the beach all day and we were going to get on a plane, but we needed some food. So we stopped at this restaurant and we did not look good, right? We'd been at the beach all day. We were not. We were not in nice clothes. We did not look good. We hadn't. Our hair was a mess full of sand, like we did not look good. And you know, everybody in the restaurant was all dressed up and I felt like such a fish out of water. I think I told you about this last year, but our waitress was so warm and so loving and so grateful to have us there. She was just, like, so effusive in our love and where I was like, we don't belong. She was like, you belong here. I am so happy you're here. And I told my husband, like, I have never felt that loved going out to dinner, right? And it was such a remarkable experience. And I thought, like, that's a place you want to go back to. You want to go back to have that feeling and like that's what you're trying to create inside your own internal culture. You're trying to create a place that you want to go back to.

You want to, to have a place that will fuel you to go back to, to to lift you up and build you up and encourage you when things get hard. And the more loving and welcoming you can make it inside of you, the more you have a place to go back to. When you need confidence and you need belief, and you need vision and you need help. That's the only way you're going to get the things you want.

Like we all want to feel important and seen and loved as we are. And I want you to know that like it starts with you. You don't have to achieve something first to finally get a little acknowledgement for yourself and appreciation. You want to build that in into your internal culture to support you on your way to your goals. Okay, my friends, that's what I have for you today. You can't outwork or out plan or out strategize a bad culture. That is what is holding so many of us back. What is happening inside? How you think and feel inside matters because that is what is creating the outside. So vision, vulnerability, buy in belief and love. That is everything you need to build an amazing internal culture. And that, my friends, is 100% awesome. I love you for listening and I'll see you next week.
