Turning it upside down


It’s a very stoic perspective to adopt, but take a negative situation or obstacle and flip the perspective to use it as an opportunity.

In practical terms…

If you delayed whilst travelling, use it as a chance to practise patience.

If your laptop fails to save your work, it’s a chance to start again with a blank page.

If something is a real challenge, it is a chance to get stronger.

Whilst all of the above are frustrating situations, there is no benefit in encouraging negative thinking. Sure most of us will have a few seconds of frustration, but use your self awareness to flip the perspective.
