WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU KEEP IN MIND WHEN FACED WITH AN OBSTACLE?
Every obstacle you come across challenges you as an individual. Remember that this is what builds your character and makes you a stronger more knowledgeable person.
Megan Zechel, Aveda Institute VICI Madison, Madison, Wis.
The one thing to keep in mind when facing an obstacle is to remember grace and favor is upon you.
Lynn LaVoie, The Gallery College of Beauty, Clinton Township, Mich.
One thing that I try to remember is that in life we will go through obstacles. The thing we must remember is that we must endure. The key is to never stop, go through it. In the end you will see that it was not as bad as you thought it was.
Jackie Jones, Kenneth Shuler School, Spartantburg, S.C.
Life is not full of obstacles but challenges. It is not what challenges that we have but what we do with them. With every challenge there is an outcome and with every outcome there is a positive and negative. When faced with a challenge I think of how I can choose the positive outcome.
Helen LeDonne, Santa Monica College, Santa Monica, Calif.
I always remember... life isn’t black and white. It’s difﬁcult to overcome adversity in life if you see every challenge in terms of two colors. You must be ﬂexible and see things in shades of gray. Most intelligent folks look at situations in shades of gray. Why? Because, when life throws you a curve, you can adjust and make the necessary adjustments to handle it. Think about a surfer... have you ever watched a surﬁng contest? Watch them; they adjust their footing and their bodies to be able to handle every wave that comes their way. The one who is the most agile and ﬂexible is usually the one who wins. Why? Because they adjusted and were able to ride that big wave all the way home. And you, too, can ride that wave.
Linda Sue Fontenot, BSE, R.N., Parisian Spa Institute, Jacksonville, Fla.
What I have to keep in mind daily as I teach in the classroom is that ﬁrst, students are diverse and have personal lives that often encompass jobs, children marital challenges, and ﬁnancial responsibilities that sometimes may overwhelm them as they are attending beauty college. I offer them the opportunity of focusing on cosmetology practices that keeps them in a positive, productive work environment. Obstacles vary for all of us. I stay up to date on any resources that may assist a student in need. Students are real people with real challenges.
Catherine Cunningham, Cosmetology Program at Gaston College, Lincolnton, N.C.
When you can’t get around it and you can’t go over it, then go through it! I have to remember that you cannot eat the elephant all in one bite and the same thing for any obstacle I am facing. It takes planning, patience and perseverance. The three Ps.
Patricia Cochran-Campbell, Adrian’s Beauty Colleges, Turlock, Calif.
