What good happened today?

It can be easy to focus on the negative things that happen in the course of an average day.  Maybe a patient unexpectedly canceled.  Maybe you didn’t make a sale.  Maybe that much-anticipated viral video didn’t go quite so viral.  It is often difficult to overcome such negative energy even with all the abundance so many of us are fortunate enough to have in our lives.

One simple strategy to overcome a negative focus is just to ask, “What good happened today?”  For example, instead of focusing on the lack of virality from that “viral” video, turn to the positives of the new ad campaign you just developed or the leads that are actually coming in or, heck, even the coolness/humor of said non-viral video.  If you just take a deep breath and look a little more closely, there are many positive things on which to focus.  Sometimes you just have to remind yourself.

So, what good happened to you today?  Please leave me a comment.  I’d love to hear your positive news.
