Oct 1 – Are you choosing to survive or thrive? Have recent challenges made you feel that the best has been taken out of you? Are you feeling overworked, under appreciated and undervalued for all that you have invested in your efforts? As the saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough really do get going. And part of that "getting going" is to make sure your head is staying in a place of empowerment and optimism. Chances are there has been another time in your life when you felt that all was not as you had hoped. And in that moment, you proved to yourself just how strong and determined you really were.
Take an MM&I Moment to reflect on past challenges that you have overcome and prevailed. Note what you gained from overcoming these obstacles or setbacks. Now look at your current situation and take a moment to see what you may not be seeing because you are so caught up in just getting by and surviving each day. What can you embrace with a little more vigor that could help you shift into believing you can thrive against this? What are five positive attributes you possess that you can put into action to step forward instead of looking back? As human beings, we were born to thrive each and every day. Don't take that birthright away from yourself.
