Michael Jordan once said that “work ethic eliminates fear,” and that’s a principle that I live and work by. I think as long as you are investing your time in ensuring your work is of the highest quality, that spirit is contagious, and it challenges those around you to work harder, go further, and do more to become the best they can be. And when you know you’re doing your best, you gain confidence in your ability to surpass goals. I call it the domino effect for success.
