“Everybody tells you to be patient but they don’t tell you how to be patient.” – L.T. Bourne
Today’s featured author is activist, filmmaker and speaker from the Caribbean Islands, L.T. Bourne. Leo and I talk about his book, his nonprofit “Open Thought” and the qualities of a true leader.
“I believe that we all have a story to tell and it’s unfair to the next generation for us to take our stories to the grave.”
“We have to find ways to let our light shine.”
“People feed off of your passion.”
Find and live out your passion.
Live life fearlessly.
Leaders should have integrity, passion and an open mind.
The person you know may change within 10 minutes just by getting on social media and seeing a mind-changing post.
We live in the age of instant gratification and it doesn’t reflect how the process of life truly works.
“Take care of yourself and be patient with yourself.”
