Negatives Always Negate the Positives

Work Smart Wednesday – Changing the Rules.

We learned it in math class.  Take a positive number, multiply it by a negative and you’ll get a negative.

It’s so true in many facets of live.  This week I learned, upon the launch of a major project, not to let the negatives make the overall positive experience a negative one.  It’s too easy.  All it takes is just one.  But what about the positive majority?  Why should it suffer?

I refuse to focus on the one negative that turns a positive experience into a negative.  So, do this in life.  It’s not always going to go well. But you know what – let’s change the rule. When it’s not the majority – the negatives will not win.

Take the positive nuggets in anything you and focus on that.  Then, it will grow.  And that now minor negative just becomes an after thought.

I’m working to Live.  And, it’s going to be positive.
