That’s the advice Marilyn Carlson Nelson received from her dad when she was 13 years old. Today Nelson, owner of the $40 billion Carlson Cos., is one of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs and philanthropists.
And she counts that advice as some of the best she ever received.
“I told my dad I wasn’t going to Sunday school anymore because the class was too chaotic,” Nelson says. “He said, 'You can’t quit. If you don’t like it, fix it.' So I made a list of how to make it better. My mom took me to the church, and we changed Sunday school. It was my first lesson in change .”
The bottom line, says Carlson, is you’re defined by what you tolerate.
