Recently I had got an email from someone and initially the first line in the email said, it had my name and then it sounded more Condescending than anything really. I asked myslelf are you really reading the whole email correctly, Milton.
Immediately my mind went to a negative place. And I tried to calm down for a few minutes, because I initially I was aware of the fact that my blood pressure was rising and I was going to a place I really didn’t want to go mentally, so then I took my time and read the email fully once again.
Now I wonder how many of you have ever been in that place before where you have read something or you saw something and initially in your mental perspective went to that of a negative place or negative intent? I know I’m not the only one here. So let’s be honest with one another that it’s really really a challenge to stay positively engaged in how you approach situations. I come across my life in different moments, different opportunities, different people different conversations it’s amazing how I approach the thing that makes it what the thing is.
How about you? Now it’s really not your fault; as a kid you presume positively intently but everything came crashing down. As a child, You were happy you were excepting, loving and didn’t hold grudges. You didn’t have man hurtful things, you didn’t have people let you down so you’re just a happy person but what I want to challenge is that over the course of time as you became an adult, you became older your spirit has shifted to such a way that immediately because of experiences you have had, immediately you presume negative instead of positive.
If there’s anything I can do and share with you today is that it’s practice, it’s a work in progress to presume positive intent. How you approach things may very well be how things end up as a result. So, presume positively have caution when needed because that’s part of life to have caution but if you presume positive intent more than any approach this will be beneficial. The right mindset and the right eye will serve you with less stress and give you a better to best outcome.
So maximizers, if your approach is right then your outcome will be right. Thanks for your attention-Coach Milton
