One Mission, One Goal, One Team: Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour Kicks Off BUG 2019
Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour kicked off BUG 2019 Monday morning with a powerful keynote speech on overcoming obstacles and breaking through to be your best self. Here are her three keys to engaging in your own life and becoming “cleared hot” to achieve your goals:
- Acknowledge the obstacles, but don’t give them power. Everyone comes across obstacles in their lives. Know that they are there (or will be there at some point) but come up with a plan to overcome them. Take away their power and you take away their ability to derail your goals.
- Opportunities don’t go away, other people take advantage of them. Opportunities in life are presented to you every day, but you can’t put in 99.5% effort and expect to seize them. You have to go all in or someone else will.
- Gutsy choices make gutsy leaders. You have to make the gutsy, sometimes uncomfortable decisions to be the best leader. Courage, power, and grit combine to make gutsy leaders. Thinking gutsy thoughts and taking gutsy actions are two different things. At what point do we stop waiting for things to happen and take control and make them happen?
Vernice also stressed something that we believe at Abrigo: One mission, one goal, one team. We are all working together to fight financial crime, grow your institution, and make big things happen.
