My youngest son can sometimes be a bit of an Eeyore. Yet, from an outsider perspective, most would agree he has a right to wallow. He has severe food allergies…and has battled this for his entire life. Most times he is a battler…yesterday, he was having a down day.
Holidays can sometimes be a bit harder for him…he doesn’t get to enjoy the foods like we do. And, most times, he feels like an outcast as he watches what others eat and enjoy.
As he was sharing his struggles with me- he was visibly upset. My advice back to him…as he told me how life isn’t fair: ‘Good.’
His reaction was probably like most of yours right now…he about exploded. “How could you say that to me dad?!”
I then showed him this video. Take the 1:04 to watch it. With the right mindset, it is a game changer.
It didn’t solve all his problems. But it changed his frame of mind. And, he got up- and got after it. Like he always does.
Today- Tomorrow- This week- things may not go your way. Life may not go your way. Good. Drive On. And get after it.
Hope you have a great week – I’m always in your corner. Win the Day- pja
When things are going bad: Don't get all bummed out, don't get started, don't get frustrated. No. Just look at the issue and say: “Good.”
*Bonus Track: Prior to my interaction with David last night- I had intended to write to you about starting your New Year’s resolution on 01DEC rather than 01JAN. Everyone starts on 01JAN. You are a leader. Leaders set themselves apart.
