A pathway to success.

My favorite word is hope.  A feeling of expectation and desire for something  to happen......

Maintaining a hopeful attitude is crucial in our lives - especially in times of stress, change  and turbulence.

How can you remain balanced and hopeful as to your future?

First set clear, reasonable,  actionable value based goals.

Secondly, keep track and be accountable to either a friend, colleague or mentor as to your progress.   If possible, brainstorm ideas that utilize your strengths with colleagues, friends and mentors.  Listening to inspirational stories/speeches, i.e., ted talks, pod casts, etc. can also serve as a motivator.

Most importantly, take daily action on your goals.  Strength builds on strength and action leads to action.

Don't forget to celebrate your accomplishments, small or large.  Remember social support is the greatest stress reducer and can be a source of inspiration.

I encourage you to embrace a sense of hope and the courage to be all you can be.......
