When we think of character building, “mistakes” may be a word that comes quickly to the mind.  Here are some tips for overcoming obstacles in our career or life paths.

  • Don’t let your past create your future.  Respond to the unexpected by making a conscious choice to avoid the victim mentality.
  • When you reach roadblocks to your success, don’t give up.  Rarely does anyone succeed without overcoming obstacles.
  • If you want to win, stay in the game.  Don’t let temporary failure cause you to miss out on permanent success.
  • Consciously choose your attitude.  Successful people cultivate a habit of positive enthusiasm.
  • Be easy on yourself and everyone else.  We are all works in progress.
  • Don’t waste your energy on looking for someone to blame.  Choose to see the positives and opportunities to grow, even in the face of adversity.
  • Accept constructive criticism as a gift.  It can enlighten you to the changes you need to make to be successful.
