Hilary Jastram: Walk From Pain Into Purpose

  • You can still be a thought leader with your vulnerabilities.
    • People can see the steps you’ve taken in your journey; the good ones and the bad ones.
  • Hilary was sick of the place she was at, so she sought to change it.
    • She was open to learning things that she didn’t know.
  • Be forgiving with yourself; know that what you’re going to learn is going to help not hurt.
  • Share with others what you’ve learned and how you learned it.
  • Championship leaders are constantly learning.
  • Zone in on your specialty and make sure you’re constantly learning and growing.
  • If people continue to let you down you can chose to be trusting or not: you can chose your circle.
  • Trying to scale with trust issues will be a disaster.
  • When something hits you- take in the emotions, process it, and then release it. Be open about it: be open to the why.
    • Look at the pain as something that will help get you what you want.
  • If you can examine the triggers to your pain honestly you will start to heal, and when you start to heal you will begin to experience abundance and prosperity.
  • You matter- you don’t need approval.
  • Be a leader for the RIGHT reasons.
  • Deal with your anger- don’t let it hold you back.
  • You know people that you may want to work with: send them an email and catch up.
  • Do everything you possibly can: you don’t have time for self-doubt.
  • Take what comes at you and continue moving forward no matter what.
  • Life is a balance: prepare for both opportunity and adversity.
  • Cutting toxic people doesn’t mean that you don’t love them or you don’t have memories with them; it is dependent on how the relationship makes you feel.
    • You need to make difficult decisions about who is in your life.
  • Championship leaders make difficult decisions for the betterment of the team and their lives.
