Don't like it? Change the way you think about it.
This weeks video, Don't Like Something? Change the Way You Think About It! starts off with a story involving:
dad and son's day out
excitement, disappointment and sorrow
then, go back for more one year later
A light-hearted example I know, but we should ask ourselves, why? Why do we focus on things we cannot control? Like, all the what ifs!
If you cannot control something, put your energies and passion into what you can influence and improve. Your work, your life, your family and hobbies.
In the video I describe how, over the years, I have learnt that there is no such thing as a difficult person or situation. I just hadn't discovered how to deal with them yet.
So now I:
learn from experience
turn things on their heads
think with a different perspective
change the way I think
try to turn a negative into a positive
Challenge yourself to think differently about people and situations you may find yourself in.
Look back on how you have dealt with situations in the past, that even if you didn't handle them well then, you will have a different perspective now.
By putting some of my suggestions into practice you can work towards bulletproofing and Future Proofing Yourself immediately.
Remember, if you don’t look after yourself or your business, who is going to do it for you?
