See the Possibilities in Every Obstacle

Become a possibilitarian. No matter how dark things seem to be
or actually are, raise your sights and see possibilities
 - always see them, for they're always there. ~Norman Vincent Peale

Stress and negativity are a part of success.  You will always encounter obstacles.  If something seems easy it is because you have already overcome the obstacles it took to arrive at that moment.  Remember when you were very young and you were learning to ride a bike without the training wheels.  If you did not think it ever possible that you were going to ride that bike without training wheels, then you were never going to do it.  However, you could see the possibilities.  You didn't allow falling down a few times to deter you from your goal.  Leadership is the same.  You must hold on to a vision of success despite the struggle.  At some point, it will become easier as long as you think it is possible to achieve.  Likewise, as a leader, you need to help others see the possibility of their success.

1. Close your eyes
2. Breathe
3. Empty your mind
4. As thoughts come in, acknowledge and whisk them away
5. Focus on your breathing
6. Think about the affirmation:

"I will look for and see the possibilities of success
in every obstacle!"
