Acknowledging the “Tough” People

I was talking to a friend, John, recently and he was not happy with a professional services firm who was working with him. His liaison was condescending and almost rude to him. Even though the firm changed his point person, John just couldn’t let go of the negative feelings.

I suggested something that John thought was ridiculous until he thought about it a bit. What I recommended to John was that he find just one thing he could positively acknowledge about his former liaison. He did and when he reported back to me, John’s attitude had changed  for the better.

So even if someone does something wrong to you, I challenge you to find one good thing and acknowledge the other person. The real reason for doing so is when you release those negative feelings, you will have room to pursue your goals, dreams, and aspirations.

Have a great day,
