Last week, I coached a Single Mom, Susan, who had just been retrenched. She had been on the job for less than 9 months and was just getting the hang of things when the company downsized. Right before Christmas. But still, she was so positive and had such energy in her. "This just means I'll have more time to spend with the kids this Christmas!" When I asked her how she remained positive in such difficult situations, she replied. "My children are watching me... I need to teach them resilience because this world is not always kind to you. For this reason alone, I'll stay positive!" This Christmas Season, stay positive, regardless of whatever situation you're in. Be like Susan!
