There is nothing worse then having to work with someone who plays tit for tat games, behaves in a spiteful manner, and is untrustworthy- you know the type of individual that you have to have sign 50 agreements in order for them to do the right thing. Nobody wants to work with someone like that.. In other words, don’t be a sensitive drama queen- KEEP IT REAL- treat people how you want to be treated, do not take or expect anything that you did not work for, admit when you make a mistake, and do whats right whether its in a signed contract or not.

Smile. Any challenge, hardship or whatever is only going to make you stronger (and you really have no choice but to deal with it so you might as well smile). I was doing a study on a lot of the great leaders in history; Marcus Aurelius, Alexander, Catherine the Great, our Founding Fathers, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, etc. The one thing that I realized that all of these great leaders had in common was a massive ability to persevere any hardship- and none of these leaders had easy lives- can you imagine what would have happened to our founding fathers if they had lost the Revolutionary war? Teddy who was known as a the Bull Moose was wrought with illness as a child and I am not even going to begin to go into detail what all of these leaders had to endure in their lives. But nonetheless- every adversity they faced only made them stronger and better leaders. So nowadays when things are hard I have taught myself to simply smile and say “this is only going to make me better and stronger”.
