I met a friend who is struggling to make ends meet in a job where they don’t really treat him well. He feels that he has no place to go and is feeling more and more resentful.
I wouldn’t say that how he felt is unreasonable; his situation is untenable. Yet, during our conversation, it was clear that no matter how “right” he felt, that point of view was getting him no where. For the first 30 minutes of the conversation, he wasn’t willing to budge. However, the more he talked, the more he realized that he was causing his own demise. He decided to take a small step to restructure his attitude.
While a shift of perspective is an iterative thing, each small step moves us closer to greater success and happiness.
Have a great day
