As one of four boys raised by a single mother, my life could easily have taken a different path. Instead, armed with my mother’s determination that her sons make a better life for themselves and my own refusal to be shaped by my circumstances, I forged a path to extraordinary professional and personal satisfaction and achievement.
Today, I am not only a son and a brother, but also a husband, father and business leader. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to help steer Comcast on its way to becoming one of the world’s leading companies.
Lessons learned from every stage of my life – from motel rooms to the Comcast boardroom – and the people who influenced me along the way, form the basis of my overarching message: An uncompromising life is one where you stay true to what is important to you, what you believe in and what you love.
It leads to more fulfillment, purpose and a lasting legacy.
An uncompromising approach to life means you are fiercely independent, radically responsible, scrappy and possess an undistracted mindset. It also means you have an unwavering commitment to your FIGHT, which is defined by your core values, passion and purpose. You have the courage of your convictions, stay locked-in on your goals, get up when you fall and continue to forge ahead.
We need to live an uncompromising life, one in which we stay true to what is important to us, what we believe in, and what we love.
I hope my hard-won insights about the importance of standing by your why in everything you do inspire you to live an uncompromising life, one in which we stay true to what is important to us, what we believe in, and what we love.
