Today, Insider, I want to answer a question which constantly pops up everywhere.
I've been asked this question by so many of you over on Instagram, Facebook, email—you name it, I see the question on it.
Especially when I'm speaking on stages all around the world! I get a lot of people putting their hands up and asking, ‘what's the best life advice you've ever received?’
The best life advice I've got from all of the successful people I've been lucky enough to hang around with is definitely this one thing which I’m going to share with you in my video today.
But first a bit of background to what was happening in my life when I received this one great piece of advice.
About four to five years ago, I was working a nine-to-five job. During that period I had a lot of side businesses and so forth but it was getting that point where I wanted to really start sharing my message online.
But as I was an introvert with social anxiety, I wondered how would I find the confidence to do that? My biggest fear was going on camera to talk about my opinions.
I asked my boss at the time, and he gave me the invaluable advice that I still use today and never forgot.
When I asked my boss this important question, first he said: “how would you describe me Tim?”
I said, “you're quite crazy, I've never actually met somebody like you. Because just the other day you came into the office and said that you randomly thought of an idea while in the shower. And instead of thinking about it, you'd already bought me the flight tickets and said I'll be flying over to Philippines to spend time with farmers and we'll be launching this big chocolate project soon.”
When I told him what I thought of him, I was amazed by what his reply to me was, and I’ve never forgotten it.
Watch my video today, Insider, to see how my crazy boss gave me the best life advice I’ve ever been given. Here is a hint—it’s to do with my favourite phrase—taking action!
As you go off and start your day today, use my message to get in the game. Don’t hold back any longer, waiting on the side-lines, because time is precious and we mustn’t waste it.
As always, my friend, follow your heart and take action and go live the life you were truly born to live! I will speak to you very soon, Insider!
