When faced with challenges I need to remember to do the following things.
- Stay Calm
- Trust Myself
- Be Flexible
I heard a radio program this week and the host was talking about being a team player. He said he could differentiate between people who have never played team sports versus people who have. This did not include sports such as Track & Field (me) where you function as an individual unless you run a relay. I thought about this analogy and my life. Have I acted like a person who is a team player or do I act as an individual?
As I mature my tolerance level for “nonsense” is low. As a result, this may sometimes come across in a way that I don’t intend. I have determined that while I enjoy my independence and individuality I will strive to be a better and more patient team player. I will, however, still not tolerate nonsense, but instead learn to address it before it creates a snowball effect in my life and the people around me.
As part of this journey I have included some resources that you might find helpful.
