Many of us who are interested in self development or great sporting icons will have heard of world big-wave surfing champion Laird Hamilton, but many would not have heard of his wife Gabby. A successful sportswoman in her own right and a devoted and wonderful mum, I recently heard an interview with Gabrielle Reece where she shared a great piece of advice in terms of living in the moment. She said to always Go First.
When you see somebody, be the first to smile. When you are in a conversation, be the first to be curious and ask a question. When you are attending a lecture or watching a corporate speaker, be first to ask a question. It’s such a bold and productive attitude to take. Most people sit back and wait for someone else to do it. The people with mojo, those who unlock great ideas, those with spirit, those whom people admire and those that people want to follow, are the ones that go first. The secret to creating a new business is to find an area that no-one else is competing in and be first. Next time you are with your family, a friend, in the workplace or at a conference, ask yourself, “How can I go first?”
