Leadership Minute: Positively You


A lot of times people look at the negative side of what they feel they can’t do. I always look at the positive side of what I can do. – Chuck Norris

Knowing what you can’t do can be liberating knowledge if you possess the right attitude. Rather than waste a lot of time and energy being upset about it why not turn your attention instead to what you are good at? It’s when you embrace the positive side of what you can do that you can appreciate and respect those around you who can do what you can’t. Intuitively we know that not everyone’s talents, gifts, and skills are the same. It’s when you embrace it that good things begin to happen. You can help those who don’t possess your skills and they can help you. You don’t have to be the best at everything; you just need to do your best with your things. Stay focused on the positive and everything else will take care of itself.
