Personal Growth with Michael and Carolyn
At Loveworks, we believe that one of the ways that you can become one of the best versions of yourself is to focus on personal growth. We love curating things like books, music, organizations, blogs, or resources that have encouraged your personal growth.
Today we are going to offer a couple of words and phrases that won’t fade in and out of popularity but can have a lasting impact on how you live your life.
The word “just”. Be careful with this word because it can diminish the impact of your accomplishments and the value of your time and effort.
“Have to” signifies an expression of obligation or compulsion made to another person while on the other hand “Get to” denotes the expression of any opportunity or privilege provided to someone.

Alice’s ADVICE –
Don’t get too up when you’re up and don’t get too down when you’re down. We all feel like whatever it is, whether it’s the best news in the world or the worst, that it’s over. But honestly, the day goes by, we wake back up again and we start back over again. If we get too up on our up, we honestly will crash too much when we crash. So get excited when you win something; be excited when your team wins or when you do well in a class or any of those things. Understand that even though this is a great moment, every moment is just a moment inside of itself.
- Look for sparks in your life, it doesn’t have to be your job
- If you want to be a CEO, find that thing that you are best at and surround yourself with others to support you in doing that
- You can learn something from everyone
