Growing up as a kid my family referred to me as “Mr. Neg”. I didn’t see the glass as half-full but really questioned whether the glass would be there for future use. Boy, what a joy it was to hang out with me. Many years have passed since then and I have gained a greater appreciation of how my perspective impacts those around me.
Now you might be thinking, “Gee Craig, what a revelation. What took you so long?” and I respond yep, you’re right! Recognizing your short comings is one thing, changing is another. So here is my point:
Each of us leaves an impression with those that we interact with. We have a choice to create a positive or negative impact. The ripple effect will continue throughout the day for not only you but those you communicate with.
I now choose to have my interactions with others to be a positive experience. I admit this can be a real challenge for Mr. Neg but I have seen the impact and know it’s worth the effort.
Until next time…what is your perspective?
