On October 15th, Nicole Richie was one of the key note speakers at the Create & Cultivate event held at Mason Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia. She was joined by her close friend Sophia Rossi and the likes of Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Nicole gave a lot of great advice, most notably the following:
“It’s so easy to fall into a box that somebody else had put you in. If you want to save yourself some energy: Just. Be. Yourself. There’s nothing else to be. You’ll only do someone else at 40 percent.”
“We need to be the first one to believe in ourselves.”
“I have the most respect for the darkest times in my life because they have shaped me who I am as an individual today.”
“We each have something to bring to the table. I think instead of looking outward and focusing on what everyone else is doing, you have to have trust and faith enough in yourself to know that you’re going to bring something totally different. Understand your strengths and know your weaknesses. Both are very equal. Both are very important. You don’t have to be good at everything. Know what you’re good at. Look to people in areas that you need help and have those people help you.”
