The man of character

Tuesday May 17, 2011 #316

 “Faced with crisis, the man of character falls back on himself. He imposes his own stamp of action, takes responsibility for it, makes it his own.”

~Charles de Gaulle

It is common to look outside for the causes of a personal, organizational or community crisis.  That path almost always leads to unnecessary and misplaced animosity.  The key to resolving crises is to look internally and discover the actions you can take to move past the crisis, learn and evolve.  Think of a challenge you are facing and rather than looking for blame or other external causes, determine what you will do, now, to make a positive move to learn from and move past the challenge.
