Leadership Minute: Dodging Bricks

brick

Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. – Steve Jobs

All leaders know this. Life has a way at times of being harsh. Things don’t go the way you plan, a friend betrays you, the deal falls through. It’s called life. But leaders also know the power of resiliency and look for ways to move forward despite the hurt. When trials and setbacks come your way and it would seem you are being hit upside the head with bricks; don’t despair. Don’t give up. You will rise to fight another day; win another battle, and lead with your character intact. Fight through the discouragement. Don’t let your confidence be shaken. You can do this!

    Being aware while in the moment of a rainy day that a sunny one is coming is just the kind of positive attitude that leads others through tough times. Remember as well that not everyone you deal with understands that you are in the middle of a rainy day so be careful not to project your rain cloud on them. I like leaders that give me a fresh and unclouded mind to work with outside of their other problems.
