I met with someone today (let’s call him Todd) who had a goal firmly planted in his mind and was taking lots of action to achieve it. Then suddenly, a colleague put a GIANT boulder in Todd’s way and there was no immediate fix.
At first, he felt that his goals and dreams were crushed – until he realized that his achieving success in the midst of his challenges actually inspired him. He took the obstacle head on and is determined to use it to his advantage. Not only that, when he succeeds he plans to encourage others with his story.
Way to go, Todd!
A great lesson for each of us.
