Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce, captured the world’s attention in 2015 when she revealed that she is a transgender woman. Her address, live via Zoom on Day 2 at AREC 2023, was about Authenticity.
Jenner discussed three themes: 1/ What does it take to lead an authentic life, 2/ When we make true decisions in life, everything changes, and 3/Competing successfully in life and business. She says that for her there are four words that are keys to success: Gamble, Cheat, Lie and Steal. “Gamble. Give it your best shot in life. It’s a great adventure. Cheat those who’d have you be less than your are. Surround yourself with positivity. Lie beside those you love. Steal every moment of happiness. Live every day as your last. Believe in your potential,” she said.
“Always believe in the power of you. Every time you want to go to the next level, raise your level of commitment. Your greattest asset is your ability to handle pressure. Keep building on experiences.”
