How to Look for the Positive

It’s another day at the office, and it seems like everything that can go wrong has, and you are frustrated. Maybe it seems as though each time you complete an item on your action list, three new items are added. Or perhaps you can see delays in schedule or cost over runs and no sign of improvement. Or perhaps you are short-staffed and do not have a new employee starting anytime soon to help with the workload.

I know I’ve had each of these situations happen before, and I definitely felt frustrated and overwhelmed. It can be easy to let the things that aren’t going well to be all that we see. And when we focus on those frustrations, we tend to see even more of them.

Soon enough, it feels like a continual spiral of overwhelm and frustrations that can be challenging to stop. When that happens, how do you go about changing your perspective?

The answer is easy, but it takes effort and practice.

When you look for the positive, you will start to feel a shift. Not only will you see what is going right, but you feel relief and encouraged that things are improving. Below are three tips to help you look for the positive:

#1 Take a breather from the frustrations

 #2 Make a deliberate choice 

#3 Acknowledge 

As you can probably tell, the three steps create an upward spiral. It may not be easy at first to make these changes, especially on days when you feel the most challenged, but the more you do it, the easier it will become.

Showing up as the confident leader you're meant to be is a transformation that starts on the inside
