for a strong, fast pick-me-up
This post was inspired by a speaker I heard on the weekend.
His uplifting message was about changing your thoughts to deal with challenging situations (and I’m paraphrasing):
Instead of thinking – “Why Me?” think “What’s the lesson here for me?” –
turn the why into a what!
I’ve tweaked his message –
Instead of thinking WTF! – think WTL? – what’s the lesson. 🙂
What can I learn from this:
1. to stop this happening again?
2. to make things better next time?
3. to help others “learn from this mistake” so they don’t make it?
I like positive messages – delivered in a kick-ass, real-world way
Now, I must remember to take my own advice to deal with challenges I need to face!
I like simple little tips and tricks to turn thinking around – like turn the ! into a ?
It’s easy to remember – turn WTF! into WTL?

These days, lots of people and organisations need help with how to COPE with too much work, too much information, too many meetings, delivering difficult news, business writing, effective e-mail, e-mail overload, cross-cultural communication etc. I like to help people COPE.
