Holidays 2010 – ‘Tis the Season to Grow

Holidays 2010 – ‘Tis the Season to Grow

Year-end holiday stress on top of double-digit unemployment and an economy that threatens to relapse into recession has left many Americans feeling utterly helpless and hopeless.  This makes winter 2010 a perfect season for personal growth. 

We all experience key moments in both our personal and professional lives.  I define a ‘key moment’ as a triggering event or situation which presents a challenge and elicits (or demands) a response.  The important thing is not so much the moment itself, but how we respond to it.  

Because when a key moment occurs, we make an important choice to make.  Consciously or unconsciously, we will choose how we will respond.  In large measure, the quality of our lives, our happiness, and our personal effectiveness are determined by that response and how we handle the challenge of a key moment.
