Today, a professor in journalism tweeted this about my blog:
What a powerful blog!
It made my day, literally. I have been smiling ever since.
I realized a few years ago, that I should focus on every small compliment, and don’t value negative comments much. This way, I’m always happy. I’m always looking for new opportunities, and I love talking to people. People are amazing.
I get negative comments, but since I don’t value them as much as I value compliments, things have a way to turn out better than they used to.
I used to do the opposite.
I used to get a negative comment, and it would ruin my day, no matter if I got 10 fantastic compliments the same day. That one negative comment would turn everything I had worked for that week into a mess.
I wouldn’t be able to think straight. I was making excuses. And, I was asking myself why it happened, and I was trying to figure out what I could have done differently, all the time.
But, as soon as I realized that my reaction was entirely wrong, things started to turn out a lot better for me. I started to look for every positive detail in life, and life started to get a lot better.
