This week I have been thinking a lot about YING AND YANG … GOOD AND BAD … PRETTY AND UGLY … POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE and so I can go on.
I believe that everything in life is black or white, there is no grey or in between that can exists. You need to make a decision every single day, will today be good or will it be bad?
In life or in business there will always be obstacles, but how do you react towards these unexpected situations? How do you react when someone hurts you? How do you react when you lose a loved one? How do you react when your child or animal is sick? How do you react when you loose your job? How do you react when you did not get that sales? How do you react when something bad, negative, ugly happens to you?
There is so many articles on self-help, but when reality strikes you forget those articles you have once read.
It made me think. When we have business meetings, we discuss so many bad, ugly, negative objectives … we behind on sales, the pitch did not go well, employee is not performing, the economy and political impact on the business yikes and so the list go on.
But we should always remember to bring the good to the meeting as well. What went right, what we did well and all the positives out there.
We so flooded with negatives we forget to look for the positives that is around us.
Start searching for those positives.
Start a YING YANG list – for every negative you put out (in words, actions or thoughts) correct it by putting out one positive and see how your thought process starts to shift in seeing the positives around you, within you.
You were not given a good or a bad life. You were given a life. It is up to you to decide if it is going to be a good life or a bad life.
Remember to celebrate YOU.
