One thing I am always joking with people about is that sometimes I have a tendency to believe that I am 25 years old going on 70. As a one-liner that works our pretty good on the humor scale, but there is a lot of truth to that. I feel like a lot of times I want to accomplish the whole world, move mountains, and make huge impacts at the age of 25. I also sometimes feel like I am going to be 70 tomorrow and if I do not do something quick then I will miss out on my opportunity.
The crazy thing is that we know that this is not true by any stretch of the imagination. I often find myself thinking, why am I not a CEO, why and I not a politician, why have I not started my own business, and even more so, why can I not be one of the people on stage speaking at events like Catalyst. Then soon after this comes the humbling moment – the moment where I realize the answer to all of this is that I have nothing to share on stage in front of 10,000 people, I am young and lack a lot of real-world experience, and I have a lot to learn before I am ever at these huge milestones in life.
