It’s not like none of us experience negative moods or just have one of those days or weeks, right? We all have to deal with those rain clouds hovering overhead once in a while, but how we handle those clouds can make the difference on how we handle our business. There is nothing like one big negative cloud to try and ruin your day first thing in the morning and sets the tone for your remaining business day, especially if you have to face clients and customers!
What makes this issue even more harried is the use of our social networks that allow us to shout out to the world our worst experiences beyond just a simple complaint or vent. Wouldn’t it be nice to gain control over those clouds more often so we can corral those negative thoughts into more productive use so we are not tempted to share too much with the world?
Ah ha…but we can! Of course it sounds easy….”Just Be Positive”…right? Well yes it is that easy….but we all know and understand that just like a New Years Resolution…after the novelty of the inspiration wears off, we may be right back to our old habits again. There are some other factors involved that can help keep that positive attitude around much longer so you can concentrate on business and put your best foot forward every day no matter what hits your mood.
Concentrating on positive affirmations can help keep your down time in check and allow you to work through issues (don’t ignore serious issues) and turn them around for a more positive outcome. It’s not just about saying the words or writing them down, it’s also believing in your self and that you can overcome negative issues that may play havoc with your day. You don’t want to just push them aside, instead you want to create a better internal way of dealing with the negative issues so you can return to a more positive outlook. But the key is to place more positive statements and beliefs in front of you to help push out the negative so when you do encounter a stressful situation you can handle it better.
