How might you respond to insult in business or personally?
When challenge is upon you and I, how might we respond?
- Do we explode, do we cry, laugh, give up, walk away, or do we embrace it head on with dignity, integrity, and hope?
- Do we opt to be critical thinkers who operate from a problem/solution approach or do we fold at the slightest hint of opposition?
In 2011, Steve Jobs was challenged by an audience member. In fact, he stated at the mic, before a live audience that Steve didn’t know what he was talking about. Steve Jobs, instead of firing back, he meticulously gathered his thoughts, set any ego aside, and flipped gloom into hope in his very raw and real response to this fella, the audience, it should still resonate will you and I on this very day.

Let us aspire to be hopeful in face of what some might wear as adversity and let us altruistically realize in our hearts and in our minds that there is a solution to every problem. Let us aspire to find it!
Be smart and be encouraged,
