Entertaining revelation. I stumbled upon Zig Zigler. He tells a story of a woman who hates her job but helped turn it around by pointing her in the right direction. The major take away was that when you are grateful for what you have you see things in a new light. It is amazing what happens after a couple days of following his prescription. Watch the video, try it out. I see my work in a new light.
I realise that the way you see things changes everything, you can be given the exact same things as someone else and you can take it a completely different way! It reminds me of the South Park episode ‘Sounds like Crap’ where when you get to a certain age everything literally sounds like crap. It is purely a state of mind which you can turn around at any time. But what I have found is that you don’t tackle it head on, i.e. just baring it, that won’t change anything except you ability to deal with more ‘crap’. If you see it differently, if you realise you are lucky to be here, to see things with beginners eyes things can change. Be grateful and you will stop seeing it as crap. Of course, there are time where things really are crap. Being grateful lets you sort one from the other and helps you move forward. Least it has for me.
