Power Thinkers are empowered by problems. They are “successed out” – not “stressed out” – by challenges. They exercise positive reality thinking.
Power Thinkers say and think to themselves the following:
- “I created these problems for myself”
- “I made decisions that caused me to be where I am today. That’s why I’m facing the challenge”.
- “So I have nobody to blame but myself”.
- “That means that I’ll not be angry, or cynical, or suspicious.”
- “I’ll assume responsibility for these problems.”
- “I got myself into it – I can get myself out of it.”
- “I still believe that every obstacle is an opportunity:
- To learn.
- To grow.
- To be corrected or protected from making mistakes.
- So all of this is good news!”
- “So I’m not discouraged – I’m motivated by this new challenge.”
- “I’m not depressed – I’m impressed.”
No wonder why leaders rise to the top on a rough road!
Yes, Power Thinkers believe that every problem has a solution somewhere that can match it.
