3 Tips for Overcoming Obstacles

By Elizabeth Colen

Recently I was a panelist for National Association of Professional Women. The topic was “Overcoming Obstacles, Even During the Most Challenging Times.” It was an amazing group of panelists and we all had different ways of overcoming obstacles. that I felt were incredibly clear and concise. Everyday, we face obstacles and we have to make decisions that will affect not just today but our tomorrows. Here are three simple tools you can add to your toolbox and tackle any obstacle.

1. Face your fears – Look, we all have that fight or flight gut reaction and unfortunately many women have that flight reaction. Generally we don’t want conflict. Listen, when we have a plan set in our mind, we move toward that goal but if someone else (may it be your boss, co-worker, or even your spouse) have a different plan we tend to agree and shy away from our plan even if it isn’t in our best interest. No more, let’s face our fears. Speak up, show up and be prepared to stand for what you want. You have a voice use it.  You will be surprised at how great you feel from standing up for something you believe in rather than just going with the flow and getting sidetracked.

2. Hold yourself accountable – We can come up with tons of excuses (obstacles) that can prevent us from doing the things we set out to do. Did you plan out your week? Did you make all the calls you were supposed to make? Did you workout like you said you were? I could go on and on. However, we all have 24-hours in a day, it’s what we do with 24 hours that count. Plan out your week. Set appointments and keep them. Look at yourself in the mirror and get real with yourself, you can hide from others but not the person staring back at you.

3. Get a team -We all have our strengths and weaknesses, the key is to address them. Sit down and make a list. Once you have found your strengths, get focused on those and move forward. Acknowledge your weaknesses as well.  Seek out people who are strong where you are weak.   Work with those people to form your dream team.

    the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!
