    Read a great book by commentator and author, Tavis Smiley: Fail-Up, delivers strong and insightful messages about the character and tactical realignments we might consider when going through adversity.  Upstart: Business and Management for 20-40 Year Old Professionals members should understand and embrace that adversity is not only a set of challenges, it usually becomes opportunity as well.  Lessons from Fail-Up:

    1. How good is your failure?
    2. If arrogance is the disease: then humility is the cure.
    3. Muhammad Ali: A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
    4. Sometimes you have to be pushed, or you’ll never leave.
    5. Embrace the unknown: the universe is nudging you in the direction of your true destination.
    6. Success becomes failure when you lose your civility and your dignity.
    7. Double check –it and back it up or back off.

    Good luck.
