Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    The path I was on was unlikely to lead to success and my future was in doubt.

  • How I responded:

    I kept myself focused on the job at hand, never wavered in my commitment to my client or my colleagues. Eventually, those who had provided the discouragement recognized me for what my strengths were and offered another path within the company where I have since been highly successful. I thoroughly enjoy my work and don't try to be someone or something which would lead to unhappiness and probably failure.
