Good or bad, a snapshot in time should not de-fine us, but re-fine us. If we experience a “good” event like winning an award, closing a big deal or anything else that brings “positive” recognition, we should learn from that event and use what we’ve learned in our next endeavor. By contrast, if we experience a “bad” event like loosing money, a failed relationship, or anything else that brings “negative” recognition, we should also learn from that event and use what we’ve learned in our next endeavor. So, if we can use and grow from what we’ve learned from any event or experience in our life, who’s to label either “good” or “bad”? What if the things we learn from so called “bad” events actually help more as we progress through life than the “good” ones? How many people have won the lottery, only to lose all of their friends and file for bankruptcy within a few years following this “good” event? How many people have experienced a devastating loss or a “bad” event that served as the catalyst to nudged them in a direction that they never would have gone otherwise, and experienced success and fulfillment like never before because of it? Use all events in life to learn from and allow them to re-fine you, but never de-fine you. All things will work together for our good…
