When things are going bad there’s gonna be some good that’s gonna come from it.
Oh mission got cancelled?
Good. We can focus on another one.
Didn’t get promoted?
Good. More time to get better.
Didn’t get funded?
Good. We own more of the company.
Didn’t get the job you wanted?
Good. You can get more experience and build a better resume.
Good. You learned.
Good. We have the opportunity to figure out the solution.
When things are going bad don’t get all bummed out, don’t get startled, don’t get frustrated. No, you just look at the issue and you say “GOOD”, you still got some fight in you. So get up, dust off, reload, re-calibrate, re-engage and go out on the attack.
