WBE Canada President’s Update December 2018

Silvia PencakWe are officially in the last month of 2018. If you are like me, you are still working hard trying to finish as much as possible before we bid this year farewell.

It’s also a time to reflect on the achievements, successes and lessons learned, to ensure that your 2019 is even better and more enjoyable. I want to take a couple of minutes of your time today to remind you that success is not a place where you should arrive or a goal you should achieve. I learned years ago from my mentor John C. Maxwell that success is a journey, not a destination.

We will never exhaust our capacity to grow and improve. Therefore our measurement of success needs to be about today more than about tomorrow (or yesterday). Success is personal – it will look differently for you and for me.

I encourage you to look back at 2018 with a new lens – not only examine how much you’ve achieved personally, but also how much you’ve grown, improved and helped others. Did your presence make a difference in other people’s lives? What can you do today to create a better tomorrow? How can you use your strengths to help others in a more meaningful way? How can you finish 2018 on strong note?

I want to personally thank you for being part of our community in 2018. I hope that our work made some positive impact on your life or career/business and that you will reflect on your partnership with WBE Canada as mutually beneficial. And if not, we will be happy to hear about how we can improve your experience with us.

From our families to yours, Happy Holidays and best wishes for a very successful 2019!


Silvia Pencak
President, WBE Canada
