Those of us around long enough in life hopefully come to understand that success is not about what comes your way, but HOW YOU HANDLE what comes your way. That means you celebrate the good stuff but be aware of and trained on how to handle the bad stuff . What do I mean by trained? Well, most people don't handle bad situations instinctively well, it's something you have to teach yourself to do. It starts by finding the good in all situations, look at the positive. No, it's not a positive situation when a client is lost, but then you find a bigger client or what not and suddenly what was once a terrible thing paved the way for a thing that's even better than the original.
Those that have been through this cycle a couple of times tend to remember it, so then, they can be positive even beofre the next good thing comes along, so they stay posistive throughout. This skill, if everybody could practice it always, would keep us all very sane in this fast paced world where, unfortunately, your feelings are amongst the last things considreed.
