So often we want things to change in both our personal and professional life, but what we often fail to realize is, the most important change we have to make is a change in our mindset and attitude. You can’t move forward when you are mentally and emotionally stuck in the past. You can’t move forward when you are so sensitive that every critique someone makes offends you. Get over it and get over yourself. Sometimes you are not the right person for the position and it has nothing to do with your race, sex, age or sexual orientation. Not being right for that job or that role doesn’t mean that you won’t be the right person for something else. There is a time and a season for all things. Maybe there are some things and areas you need to improve in. Don’t be afraid to do some honest self evaluation. It won’t kill you and more often than not it will help make you stronger.
In my last post, I challenged you to make a list of things you wanted to see change for you in 2013. Well I want to add one more challenge and this should be at the very top of your list. Start with changing your mindset and your attitude and you will be amazed how the other things start to fall in place.
