1. Tell us what this quote means to you and how it inspires you on a daily basis
Different quotes resonate with me at different times, but this is one I often find myself going back to when I lose perspective. We can become so consumed by situations at work, in our businesses and personal lives, that in the grand scheme of life, don’t really matter. Sometimes I have to give myself a bit of a nudge and remember to grateful that I am here, and re-focus my energy on the bigger picture. Gratitude has been an incredibly powerful tool for helping me overcome the challenges that have come my way.

1. Tell us what this quote means to you and how it inspires you on a daily basis.
I have to admit, I don’t collect any inspirational quotes to keep me motivated and focused, and perhaps I should! But there is one quote that I have found relevant my entire life. Everything happens for a reason, I truly believe this. When life throws all different things as you, it’s important to believe there is a reason behind it.

We struggle so much because we think to ourselves, “if only I could change that person, or if only that person would listen.” What we don’t realise is if we change ourselves – our attitudes, mindsets, and behaviours – that we can actually affect real change in the world. It’s called role modelling, or as Gandhi put it, “being the change you want to see in the world”. We must focus on developing ourselves in order to contribute to the positive evolution of humanity.

1. Tell us what this quote means to you and how it inspires you on a daily basis
“Wing it til you bring it” was recently introduced to me by the talented Andrea Clarke (Career CEO).  It struck a chord and has become my new mantra!  So much of starting Sparro has been navigating uncharted waters. I experience at least one moment every day that either throws me a completely new challenge, or one I feel utterly unequipped to manage. Thus “Wing it…” has been a powerful and positive reminder that to succeed I need to step up, take control and keep moving forward.
