Leadership Module #2 - Barriers to Success

Every person on the planet has encountered some kind of difficulty in their life. Everyone has had obstacles that stood in the way of their goals. Everyone has had barriers to success. The true test of a man's character is not how many problems he has encountered, but whether or not he has persevered. While each of the challenges that we faced were unique, the thing everyone has in common is that we overcame and conquered the problem. We are stronger people for having had to deal with these issues and it has enlightened our perspective toward the future.
