Now is a Time for Positive Focus – The Negative Experience Transformer

Posted on | December 9, 2008

As I travel throughout the country and talk with other entrepreneurs, I have discovered that due to the sluggish economy, many are experiencing considerable downturns in their businesses. I have also noticed that in spite of negative experiences, most entrepreneurs have a common denominator: They are optimists.

A pessimist is a person who sees challenges in every opportunity. On the other hand, an optimist is a person who sees opportunities in every challenge. It would behoove us to remember that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. As the troubled Apollo 13 approached the critical earth-to-moon decision loop, Gene Kranz, lead flight director for Mission Control at the time, announced, “Failure is not an option.”

When we have a bad experience, we can ask ourselves, “When have I faced a situation like this before? What good may come of this?” Over the years, I have learned to transform many disappointing experiences into new opportunities, innovations, advantages and breakthroughs. Hence, I have compiled my own success principles and developed a unique 7-step process which I call the “Negative Experience Transformer.” I will share each step with you as I post my next seven blogs.
