Legendary sales executive in the corporate events industry, Skip Jansen continues his personal journey from being an alcoholic who started drinking at 11 years old to designing a legendary life and having a “true north.”
I never compare myself to other people anymore. -Skip Jansen
Key Takeaways From This Episode
When your life isn’t working, it heaps a lot of fear on you. You have to get over the fear.
Gratefulness can transform your life and your relationships
Don’t judge a person by the obstacles they’ve overcome. If you really want to know someone, put someone in a position of power.
We kicked off Part 2 with Skip’s “true north,” which is to be a good son. Skip reminds us that our responsibility is to the best version of ourselves, regardless of how we feel about others in our life. Maybe you have a bad spouse, but just because you have a bad spouse doesn’t give you the right to be a bad spouse in return.
Skip then shared on;
The power of gratitude
His near-obsessive love of Pearl Jam concerts
Why he stopped comparing himself to other people
The ability to be content and show up as YOU
We also discussed how Abigail is a “spoiled dinosaur” and why we may never eat chicken again. And finally, Skip left us with a legendary quote, “I find that the biggest limitation on my life is in my my own mind.”
