Why do some people crumble in the face of discourgment and others rise from the ashes, bigger and better than before? What is the secret? Faith, as Steve Jobs said, and I would like to add Skill.
In business, I like to think of faith as the willingness to believe that good can come out of any situation we are faced with. One of the ways I “keep the faith” is by acquiring skills. Every unique challenge also poses a unique moment to learn something new. Sometimes, you even discover skills that you never knew you had. Faith and skill go hand in hand. Skills require faith to attain and faith requires skills to maintain.
Challenges are inevitable. Our willingness to see them as opportunities to learn and push forward, is what makes the difference. Keep the faith, learn new skills, and while life throws bricks, we will build our dreams. Mahalo.
