Pursuit of Excellence “Growing for Gold” First, we must have a vision/goal/dream. Focus, determination, respect and perseverance are integral in believing and achieving. The importance for both the individual and team to challenge each other from within. During the process or ‘journey’ we have the ability to learn about ourselves (if we pay attention). We must grow throughout the journey, we must learn from our failures and successes if we want to reach our vision/dream. It’s always about the journey. Mental Health Cheryl shares her journey as a female athlete in a male dominated sport. She breaks down the barriers within her own environment and reflects on the impact others’ have had on her career. She addresses the power of positivity, inclusivity and the strength of the human spirit. Are you a bystander? We must have the courage to stand up and face the ‘elephant in the room’. We must join the conversation and start talking about our own personal secrets. SUPPORT—-everyone has SOMEONE. We must respect individual differences and not forget to ‘take care of ourselves and take care of each other’. Courage to overcome adversity Adversity builds character and teaches us about ourselves and our co-workers/teammates. Change is inevitable. We must be willing to embrace change, and get outside our ‘comfort zone’. Have you given yourself the best opportunity to be successful? It’s always about the journey. Leadership & Teamwork Who shows up every day ready to compete, even when it isn’t easy? Can we work together? Do we respect and have the ability to help one another? This is where we learn about ourselves. We must make a conscious choice to ‘share information’, pay attention to details and help one another. Are you prepared? It’s always about the journey.
