Negatives Are All Around Us, However, So Are the Positives. You Can Always Find a Reason To Get Up After Being Knocked Down By Life.
Many people living today may not know who Bing Crosby was, but he was a well known singer from the 40’s to mid 70’s, but who is better known for his movies, “The Bells of St. Mary and White Christmas.” Bing Crosby sung a song that said, “Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative, Latch on to the Affirmative, and Don’t Mess with Mr. In Between”. This is a powerful way of saying, ‘Focus on your positives, neglect the negatives, and be decisive.’
In all fairness to those who seek for sympathy while experiencing hardship, I understand the degree of difficulty one encounters to get back on one’s feet after being knocked down. However, instead of looking for sympathy and feeling sorry for yourself, do what others have done under the same conditions or worse, and get up to fight another day. Accentuate the positive and this can help you eliminate the negative.
It has been said that when the going gets tough, the hopeful keep going. That is because hope is the great motivator as well as an activator. People with hope can activate their desire of action, because hope causes an increase of internal power, to persevere and take action to realize their goals. Many times however, the daily grind can be a hope-killer, so what’s the solution?
Coming in January is an “It’s Not Over” course, encouraging people to spend five minutes every morning with “IT’S NOT OVER: You Can Defeat What’s Got You Down”, to gain the inspiration and encouragement needed to face daily obstacles. This course is full of hope-inspiring short essays from Dr. Mikel Brown and words of encouragement from other leaders, as well as, Scripture for meditation and prayer. This quick-read provides the motivation needed for meeting your goals and fulfilling your dreams.
If your business is experiencing hits of never-ending changes, your personnel is lacking organizational skills, you have fewer employees to do the work with loyalty as if it is a thing of the past; negative comments can be a natural side-effect as a result of these negatives. Comments such as, “It won’t work…We already tried that…and…I can’t do it” become all too familiar.
Unfortunately, employee attitudes will defeat you faster than the competition. Negativity and disgruntled people are extremely contagious and result in an environment where people don’t try as hard, don’t care as much, and really don’t desire to succeed as often. With recruitment and retention so important, you must build a work environment that is alive, exciting, and positive. You must build an environment where satisfaction and fulfillment are the rule, not the exception. You must minimize or eliminate the negatives.
That’s what my course is all about. You’ll learn the essentials of getting on your feet and staying there. You’ll learn how to implement these essentials, whether it is on an organizational level, a relational basis, or even interpersonal.
This coming New Year, look to get back on your feet spiritually, financially, and emotionally, and take back control of your business because, IT’S NOT OVER: You Can Defeat What’s Got You Down.
