Negative Land of W’s

I was watching some training videos for work recently and one of the topics really struck me. The video was “Cutting Edge Communication: Developing Successful Mindsets” and it discussed a concept of the Negative Land of W’s. Essentially having a negative attitude:

  • Wasting time
  • Wishing things were different and
  • Whining

I used to work in a restaurant and encountered staff that were constantly stuck in the Negative Land of W’s.  Pretty much everyone who knows me knows I am one of those annoying ‘glass is half full’ people. I would dread the shifts when I had to work with these negative people. Negativity festers and it spreads faster than the flu. And well, it’s just a downer.

We all get down from time-to-time and yes I know all about clinically depressed people. I’m not talking about those people. I’m talking about in the big picture of life, we choose our attitudes and as they said in the video, we ‘can’t quit before the miracle happens.’ If you’re on a path that’s veering from your long-term goals, get off that path!

You have the power of change.

Turn the Negative Land of W’s into a Positive Land of W’s:

  • Be willing to learn
  • Want to achieve
  • Wholeheartedly embrace change

What if you’re big moment is just around the corner?
