Reach for Opportunity in all Situations

There are times when we must go through negative situations. It may be with someone at work, perhaps with a friend or family relationship that may not be fed positively in both directions.  Maybe people say something negative about us, or they show rejection or even resentment against us. In situations like these, it may be difficult to for us to keep a positive attitude or better yet, to keep the relationship moving along in a positive direction, as we may be inclined to react negatively to them. I know that I have learned the hard way that this type of reaction won’t do us any good though; doing so will just make the situation worse. It may result in having these people behave even more negatively to us. I don't know about you, but for me the day would be filled with anger and disappointment and in the end, nobody wins.

So when you find yourself in a situation where it might not be going the way you want it to, or communication seems to be lacking on both ends, take a deep breath as a first step to calm yourself down. Make sure that you speak in gentle tone to whomever you are involved with (personally or through email) to reduce the tension of the situation.

These a just a couple of some very simple tips can assist us realize that we can find opportunities in all negative situations. Albert Einstein said: “In the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity.”

Be sure to reach for the opportunity. It is the best solution for everyone!
