  93. 93. Pitfalls<br />#1 - Fear of Failure/Success<br />“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”<br />~ Wayne Gretzky<br />“We are continually faced by great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.”<br />~Lee Iococca<br />“We are consistently more than we allow ourselves to be.” ~ Abraham-Hicks<br />
  94. 94.

  95. 95. Pitfalls<br />#3 - The need to be right<br /> “The way we see the problem is the problem” <br />~ Stephen R. Covey <br /> “The need to be right is the sign of a vulgar mind.” <br />~ Albert Camus<br />“Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win.”<br /><ul><li>Jonathan Kozol</li></li></ul><li>Pitfalls<br />#4 - Guilt<br /> “Guilt upon the conscience, like rust upon iron, both defiles and consumes it, gnawing and creeping into it, as that does which at last eats out the very heart and substance of the metal.” <br /> ~ Bishop Robert South<br /> You will make mistakes that negatively affects others.<br />You have not done this intentionally.<br />Forgive yourself.<br />Show compassion for yourself.<br />Move forward.<br />
  96. 96. Pitfalls<br />#5 - Unworthiness<br /> “Your problem is you're... too busy holding onto your unworthiness.” <br />~ Ram Dass<br /> “I don't possess a lot of self-confidence. I'm an actor so I simply act confident every time I hit the stage.” <br />~ Arsenio Hall <br />
  97. 97. Pitfalls<br />#6 – Negative Feedback<br /> “I've never had negative feedback.” <br /> ~ Elie Wade <br />“From the backstabbing co-worker to the meddling sister-in-law, you are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life. You can either give negativity power over your life or you can choose happiness instead. Take control and choose to focus on what is important in your life. Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life.” <br /> ~ Anais Nin <br />
  98. 98. Pitfalls<br />#7 – Lack of clear direction or purpose<br />“More men fail through lack of purpose than lack of talent.”<br />~ Anonymous<br /> “There are certain things that are fundamental to human fulfillment. The essence of these needs is captured in the phrase 'to live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy'. The need to live is our physical need for such things as food, clothing, shelter, economical well-being, health. The need to love is our social need to relate to other people, to belong, to love and to be loved. The need to learn is our mental need to develop and to grow. And the need to leave a legacy is our spiritual need to have a sense of meaning, purpose, personal congruence, and contribution” <br /> ~ Stephen R. Covey <br />
