Her focus is on doing, rather than speaking, wishing or complaining. She makes decisions with conviction and puts her full effort behind them. She admits mistakes when they happen, learns from them, and accomplishes the goals before her, one after another, making her company shine on its pursuit of excellence and new frontiers.
For her every experience is opportunity to accumulate knowledge, to hone her craft. She is not content to wallow in past failures, instead using them as fuel for her next success.
She believes that it is critical to hold on to confidence in the face of failure, refusing to believe that detours define the journey and allows only positive things to change her and inform her behavior.
