As you all know, we are in the midst of the holiday season. For some of you, this is a glorious time of year. Yet, for others, it isn’t much fun at all. There are optimists and there are pessimists amongst you…
Regardless of where you fall on that line, utilize this time of year to reflect on the positive and negative things that have occurred in 2013. “What? Why would I want to remind myself of the negatives?”
Create a list of 3 positive things that have occurred in either your personal, professional life, or both. Now, create the same list for the negatives.
Reflecting on what happened that was positive reminds us of our successes and encourages all of us to be thankful for what is good in our lives. Reflecting on the negatives and how we may have overcome those challenges reminds us how strong we truly are and that even in the face of adversity, there are brighter times ahead.
How you utilize the negatives in your life is up to YOU.
But remember, everything you say, think, and how you reflect on your life either brings you closer or takes you further away from what you want to achieve.
Happy Holidays to you all…
