Today I opened myself up to really grow, and as scary as it was, I learned so much today.
One of the main things I learned was sometimes when we are going thru a rough patch in life, we get so focused on what is wrong. We focus on that 1 degree by putting blinders on, but by opening our eyes to the other 359 degrees that make up our world. We focus on the problem, not on finding the solution.
I have a sign on my desk that reads “What DON’T I see??” but now I am going to change it to “What else can I see??”
By also focusing on the problem instead of the solution we often beat ourselves up, instead of lifting ourselves up, learning from the experience and then looking for solutions.
Even if the first solution doesn’t work, then try another, but just keep trying and learning each step of the way.
Because as I learned today, there is always a solution. We just need to get out of our own way sometimes, take in some coaching, and allow the good to come through.
