Marikina, Philippines (PressExposure) April 19, 2008 -- All career building efforts are bound to run into a couple of bumps along the way. No vision in life, certainly a Christian personal vision plan, after all, is going to be flawless. The challenge facing many people bringing their vision to life is not merely the anticipation of the challenges, but the quality of the way they react to these challenges.
Career building goals, as a matter of fact, can benefit from the sheer fact you react to a crisis and call it by a different name. It says a lot about your vision in life when you call a problem by a different name, like a challenge or an opportunity. When you look at a crisis differently, when there is no fear of potential stumbling blocks, and when you react to a situation with grace and aplomb, well, people really sit up and take notice.
Are you the type of person who others can expect to run to in times of trouble?
The speed with which you react to a crisis is an excellent indication of the passion with which you treat your vision in life. Red Cross founder Henri Dunant, for instance, saw an immediate need during the world wars, a crisis that necessitated the creation of some kind of organization that would save lives, regardless of color and nationality. He saw a crisis and reacted quickly, because time was of the essence.
You may not see crises around you just at a particular time, but a crisis is exactly like that. It happens when people least expect it, and wreaks a great amount of damage. React to it with maturity, creativity, and confidence, and youâve just put yourself further into the right frame of mind to your vision to life.
