Whether it’s in your personal life or in the workplace, we have all had to face our fair share of challenges. What matters most, however, is how you handle the challenges you are faced with. Do you overcome the obstacle or do you let the obstacle overcome you?
Motivational keynote speaker Stephanie Decker is no stranger to overcoming obstacles. Using her strength and perseverance, she found courage in the storm and overcame the adversity she faced when losing her legs in a tornado that hit Indiana in 2012.
Continue reading for some tips on how you can tackle the challenges that come your way just as Stephanie overcame hers:
1. Find your inner hero.
In March 2012, Stephanie acted as a hero when she saved her children from getting hurt in the tornado that caused her home to come crashing down. Stephanie later acted like even more of a hero when she began to advocate for the amputee community through the Stephanie Decker Foundation, which serves to give back to children with prosthetics.
Finding your inner hero can help you tackle challenges that may seem difficult to overcome. However, once you find the hero within yourself, you will realize that you have the power to overcome anything that comes your way.
2. Recognize the heroes around you.
Another key to overcoming challenges is not only recognizing the hero within yourself, but also recognizing the heroes all around you. Once you do this, you must also realize that it’s okay to ask for help if you need it. This is where those heroes around you will come into play. They might be able to offer you the help you need to face your challenges, but you’ll never know if you don’t ask. With that being said, it is important to remember that teamwork is another factor that can help you overcome any obstacle.
3. Stay positive and motivated.
While she was in the hospital, Stephanie remained positive despite the hardships she was going through. In the same way, you must remain positive no matter how difficult the situation may get. In addition to remaining positive, you must also stay motivated to keep moving forward. Maintaining a negative mindset will produce negative results, so remember keep your head up and remember that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
