We've all been there. (And for entrepreneurs, it can happen a lot.)
That one (or more than one) important thing just didn't go your way. It could be something small, or something huge.
Suddenly, your entire day feels derailed.
It not only upsets your mood (and the those you interact with), it has a direct correlation with your goals and results.
When you're upset, you don't think as clearly. Your judgement is clouded. And when you're operating in a fog, it's difficult to know which path to take.
And when you're unsure, it affects how much action you take. (I've been there.)
It's a downward spiral. And it's got to stop.
This isn't about pretending your problems don't exist. I'm not talking about convincing yourself everything is rainbows and unicorns.
This is as much about being successful as it is about being happy. This is about taking control of your thoughts, instead of them controlling you.
It comes down to how you respond to adversity. Consistently.
