You never know what’s right around the corner…

Do the right thing.  That’s my best recommendation.   At the same token, don’t expect others to respond in kind.   It’s just not how the world works.   Sometimes things might happen like:

– You say ‘Good Morning’ to a stranger and he or she doesn’t even aknowledge you.

– You are dating someone who you go out of your way to treat well and they ultimately decided to leave you. 

– You get passed up for the job that you are certain that you are the best candidate for.

Life sucks sometimes.  It can be easy to use that disappointment as an excuse to stop trying.  After all, you worked hard and showed dedication and commitment(the proverbial blood, sweat, and tears).  And for what?  Why put in all of this extra effort?

Because having the right attitude is everything!

For all you know, the next job offer will come before you know it, and it will be even better then the job that turned you away!  Maybe you will find someone who is so much better than the one that got away;  Maybe the next person you smile at will be grateful that your positive energy brightened their day!

The catch is, the good fortune will only come if you continue to give the same passionate energy to everything you do.  No one wants to hire the guy that has a chip on his shoulder and comes across angry.  No one wants to date the guy who is depressed and not confident in who they are and what they have to offer.   The person stuck in ‘whoa is me’ mode will miss out on the opportunities that are all around him(or her)!

Never stop believing in yourself!  Talk to you tomorrow 🙂

  1. What a way to start the day. I shall be toe-dipping as part of my breakfast regime from this day forth. I often loose focus on those things I previously felt such passion for, and this is generally because of a lack of reciprocal response from those around me that I hold with the same passion, but everybody is different – thankfully – so I shall look to the differences for motivation. After all, there’s no point in looking for the familiar: That’s not going to effect a change in anything or anyone. Thank you, Dan

  2. Totally agree that maintaining a positive outlook on a regular basis is the best way to live. Sure life is going to throw you curve balls and we will regrettably say something awful or offensive…but, these should be far and few between. Feeling sorry for myself never helped. I allowed this behavior more in my 20’s and 30’s, but I always found help to move on from my negative mindset. No doubt about it, life is hard sometimes and we get tired. I agree with Tom Hanks character, Jimmy Dugan, in the movie, A League of Their Own, when he says, “If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the hard that makes it great.”

  3. Awesome post! It is possible that if you are right for somethig, the other person could take you wrong. It had happened eith me quite few times. But what always matters, as you had pointed in your post, if you just keep sticking to the ‘that’s right, that’s wrong’ it mean you are stuck and it is very much possible that you might miss the right opportunity. Thanks for sharing this.
