Action Hero: Bruce Thompson

The underlying messages that stood out to me from Bruce Thompson’s video were perseverance and work/life perspective.

I’ve found in my own entrepreneurial ventures that perspective and determination truly do make all the difference. Whether it’s a good day or a bad day, I have found I can look forward to the future with faith and hope and things always look up. Thompson mentions moving forward regardless of current situation and how much attitude determines success. He shared, “Do the right thing. It won’t always make you the most money, but things will always work out in the end.”

The message Thompson shared about work/life balance was profound. His dedication to his family was obvious and he discussed how he had to make a conscientious decision to set parameters for his time at work. He learned to tell himself that the work would be there the next day rather than letting his passion for his work overwhelm every aspect of his life. In essence he echoed the LDS message that no amount of success can compensate for failure in the home.
