If I get the job, I win and if I don’t, I’m still winning.
What if your inner talk sounded like this?
How much happier would you be when things didn’t go your way?
The other day I had plans with a friend. We had the plans set in stone for weeks, and last minute, they canceled. I was bummed. It felt like a loss. I sat in bed thinking that my day was ruined. I sat in my misery and felt frustration fill my body. Then I paused and thought: how can I see this from a different perspective? I realized it had been weeks since I had alone time. I was going to make this a “me” day. I did all the things I had put off while being so busy entertaining friends and working. It was a win-win.
Wins can be lessons learned, a chance to do something new, a chance to appreciate an aspect of your life you take for granted.
Today decide that no matter what happens, you are winning.
