Lets' Focus on the POSITIVE

I often wonder why we focus on the negative rather than the positive.

Have you ever watched parents look over their child’s school report?

The child may have an

A – in math’s

A- in English

A– in Geography

D in History.

What do you think the parents focus on?

Yes, you got it – they focus on the D and wonder what went wrong.

An adult is wearing a white shirt and they are heading out to an event, however, just up near the shoulder there is a black smudge.

What do you think everybody’ tends to see when they look at the shirt?

You got it again – the black smudge.

Hers another example from who is considered a GENIUS

Albert Einstein once wrote on a blackboard:

9 x 1 = 9

9 x 2 = 18

9 x 3 = 27

9 x 4 = 36

9 x 5 = 45

9 x 6 = 54

9 x 7 = 63

9 x 8 = 72

9 x 9 = 81

9 x 10 = 91

Suddenly chaos erupted in the classroom because Einstein made a mistake.

Obviously, the correct answer to 9 × 10 isn’t 91.

And all his students ridiculed him.

Einstein waited for everyone to be silent and said:

“Despite the fact that I analyzed nine problems correctly, no one congratulated me.

But when I made one mistake, everyone started laughing.

This means that even if a person is successful, society will notice his slightest mistake.

And they'll like that.

So don't let criticism destroy your dreams.

The only person who never makes a mistake is someone who does nothing

Let’s start to focus on the POSITIVE
