WORDS I LIVE BY
This section is a play on Instagram. We all love an inspirational quote or ten. You may not have words you live by or a motto, but it's easy to find one that resonates with you. Just jump on Google and type "inspirational quotes" then click images. If you don't find anything try "words to live by". The point to this section in your video is to give your audience a sense of who you are and what makes you tick.
You might also like to tie it into the job you're applying for or you might like to make it a bit funny.
Some examples to consider are:
"Do it with passion or not at all."
"I'm a limited edition."
"Be humble. Be hungry. And always be the hardest worker in the room."
"Work smarter not harder"
"I can. I will. End of story."
