We are positive, not because life is easy. We are positive because life can be hard.

“We are positive, not because life is easy. We are positive because life can be hard.” – Jon Gordon
The work we do is difficult – and it seems to have greater and greater challenges.  It is easy to fall into a complaining, negative rut when faced with challenge after challenge.  This is when it is most important that we stay positive.  When faced with obstacles we must remain positive.   Staying positive doesn’t guarantee success, but acting from a negative place guarantees failure.
This is even more critical when we work in teams.  As a member of an organization, of a team, it is important that we keep each other positive.  The Power of the Team is the support and energy we give each other.  We pick each other up when we are down . . . we encourage each other when we need a spark . . . we inspire each other . . . we keep each other on a positive path.
When faced with a negative event today, counter it with three positives.  When faced with an “I have to . . . ” change it to an “I get to . . .”  The positive approach to challenges will certainly lead to better outcomes.
