THANKS to all of you who’ve read my blog and written me thanking me for my positive attitude.
Here’s a saying that’s helped, courtesy of Dr. Wayne Dyer, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
Let’s look a little more closely at these words, especially during Thanksgiving.
Here’s an example: Across the U.S. we’re at an average of 9.6% unemployment.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change: This means we are at 90.4% EMPLOYMENT.
Last year, during Thanksgiving, my client Randy was downsized.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change: Randy’s attitude was, “Hey, now I get to spend some quality time with my family over the holidays.” Randy was a pilot who, in previous years, transported everyone else to their family gatherings. Randy was also hired over the holidays! Check out his full story here, “Hired Over the Holidays.”
L’s company recently merged and big changes are afoot.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change: L is now on a team in charge of merger communication to help facilitate change.
Challenge: How are you looking at things right now? What are one or more things you can do to look at the situation differently to help you uncover a solution? Try something new? Realize what you have?
We all have things happen, sometimes during the holidays — how you handle it makes the difference.
