What to do when things get in your way

June 23, 2014


Sometimes when you think you’ve got it all figured out – in business, at school, or as a parent, or when trying to buy a car – an obstacle appears that blocks your path and stops you from getting where you need to be.

As Jill Merriam, the Dealer For The People at CT new and used car dealership Key Hyundai, I’ve faced plenty of obstacles. And my new and used car customers have as well: especially car customers that have bad or weak credit, and are working hard to own a car they will love to drive.

I love to share leadership, business, and automotive tips for success, especially when I know this will work for you!

When something gets in your way, here’s the best advice ever: SLOW DOWN!

Slowing down to succeed doesn’t seem to make sense, but in fact, it is quite possibly the fastest way to overcome obstacles!

Recently I read a terrific book that reinforced what my mom has always told me my entire life: when facing difficult situations, take a breath and just SLOW DOWN. Here’s my 2 minute Nicer, Newer News video on how slowing down can actually help you succeed and overcome obstacles – with a little shout out to Ryan Holiday‘s amazing book, The Obstacle is the Way, that reinforces what mom always said: just slow down a minute!

Have you ever faced a roadblock? What did you do about it? I’d love to hear your thoughts at jillcares@keycars.com!
