    Some days just feel awful.  If you've found yourself with a case of the Monday Blues take a minute for yourself.  Turn off all distractions, close your eyes, and picture yourself succeeding.  Whatever is causing you to struggle can be conquered if you can see yourself succeeding.

    Posted in Mentoring Tips on November 5, 2014

    When you find yourself in a difficult place, remember that your attitude concerning your situation is critical to success.  Those who face each problem with a positive attitude are much more likely to succeed.  On the other hand, those who face problems with a negative attitude are more likely to get in their own way, stopping themselves before they can truly begin.  Discuss your attitude with your mentor.  How can you improve?
