Bring Your Best Self Every Day
Keeping Positive Perspective When Others Don’t
There’s a saying that says, “Satisfaction comes in rusty buckets, but your disappointment bucket never leaks.” Why is it that when we have a great accomplishment, our joy is so short lived, but if we goof up, we never live it down?
Because of this, we have to make sure that we are making a conscious decision every single day to ensure that we put our best self forward every single day. It doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, it doesn’t matter if nobody else is putting their best self forward, today is the day to do your best.
Big Sky Collision Center wants you to succeed! We have a three step process to making sure you do your best.
Make a Choice to Be the Best
Every day we get to make choices about our lives. Most of us hardly choose beyond what we will wear and what we will eat. We blame being in a bad mood on, “waking up on the wrong side of the bed.”
Here’s the secret: there is no wrong side. Our mood is a choice about how we want to react to the world around us.
If you just tackle every day without choosing how you’re going to take it on, you leave yourself open to someone choosing for you. Choose to be the best, so you are the best.
Squash Disappointment and Replace with Positive
Every day there will be things that happen that we don’t like. When it does, we have a choice: dwell on it, or find the positive. But here’s the thing: dwelling isn’t going to make it better.
It’s like if you step in a big pile of dog poo and it stinks. Running away isn’t going to make the stink any better, because it’s you that stinks! Telling other people to clean their feet won’t make the smell go away, because it’s you that stinks! Being resentful and wishing you hadn’t stepped in poo won’t make it not happen, because it’s you that stinks!
Make the decision to squash disappointment, and replace it with positive. You stepped in the poo, and now you have the opportunity to wash it off and have clean shoes the rest of the day.
Determine to Create a Positive Environment
The second law of thermodynamics tells us that everything tends toward entropy. Your work environment, left on its own, will do so as well. Unless you create a positive environment.
It will take work, it will take commitment, and it will take conscious decisions. But creating the best environment and the least toxic workplace takes time. And it’s worth it.
