On today's episode of the podcast, I chat with my longtime friend who is a grit and resilience extraordinare. Blake Thiess is one of those individuals who has a light about them that's undeniable. I remember meeting him for the first time and was instantly drawn to his positive energy and zest for life. This interview is no different. You can feel his passion for serving the world and helping others land their dream job in this interview.
Blake shares why building and maintaining resilience and grit are crucial components to your success in a career, a relationship, just about any aspect of your life. The beautiful part? It's simple yet so effective. So many times we get caught up on why we don't have something we want. This can result in jealousy that others have what we want and it leads us down a negative dark hole. Today, I'm happy to say that Blake will bring you the light and help inspire you to take a little more structured action on a daily basis to move you closer to whatever it is you want.
I can't wait for you to hear this episode, so lets head over to the show!
