It is a fine day, to begin with.
Putting on your clothing and started smiling in the mirror. The reflection is saying that you look great!
Walking to the dining table, intend to sip a cup of coffee.
You coughed. And you spill your coffee on your favourite shirt!
The coffee stain is big and it is impossible to clean it off now.
You started mumbling:” What a day! I started feeling bad luck!”
When the bad luck happens
Your mood changed. You felt that bad luck will come to you very soon.
The happy and glowing face had turned into a thunderstorm.
You frowned, started cursing and swearing over a coffee spill that you did not want that to happen.
Hence, you decided to change another shirt that does not look good enough. It was not ironed properly. Totally the heck care attitude.
Time is running out and you have an important meeting to attend to.
You have just activated the blaming mode.
Will that go to be a bad day for you, or you wanted to carry on your smiley day?
Change your attitude
You cannot accept what had just happened.
You have a meeting to attend to and you felt embarrassed that your shirt might not look good enough to present.
This does not go anywhere.
The attitude of yours change suddenly and you seem hostile towards to anyone who tries to talk to you.
It is at the point of time people started to take a few steps away from you because they do not want to be influenced by you.
Your colleague will still carry on their daily routine and stay positive. It is bad to have your negative energy spread to others.
If this goes on for days, colleagues will be wary fo you. It is as if you are a walking time bomb.
As they do not want to see you blown off suddenly, they rather stay far away from you and remain as a just colleague and nothing more.
There will be no close colleague in the office whom you can share your feeling.
If you keep thinking of all the bad luck will come, then all of them will come to you.
Looking at the bigger picture is comfortable
There are people who look at the scenario as it is.
It is as if you are holding a crop factor camera with a nice 24mm lens. You cannot enjoy the wide photo as you desired.
However, if you are willing to take a step back, you will get almost the same wide angle like a full frame camera.
It is all about willingly to make an effort so that you are able to see the bigger picture.
Like the scenario, I had just written.
Despite the coffee spilt on the shirt, you like best, you may not know that the other shirt might look even better on you.
Also, the client might not notice your shirt at all. What they need is your presentation, not your shirt. You are not a model that walk on the runway.
If you continue to put on your smiley face, the chances of client love your presentation is very high.
Even if there is an amendment to be made, they will talk to you properly instead of slamming on the table and ask you to get out.
So, stop saying you have bad luck and start learning how to stop saying bad luck.
Thunderstorm is not forever
With the positive energy generating from you, you will get lots of encouragement, liking and trust from everyone.
Tell yourself something.
Do you want to see a person who has a sulking face and not willing to talk to you or prefer a person who is smiling non-stop and cracking jokes?
Although something has changed, it does not means the day has to be bad.
Thunderstorm will pass over very soon.
The bright sunny day will appear.
It is time to think again and refocus what you just missed.
You will not be surrounded by bad luck forever.
Only by thinking positive, then all the negative energy will disperse in the air.
The more you think about the bad luck, the more you will have. So you have to learn to stop saying bad luck unless you really wanted to attract that.
Attract happy people
If you had a rough morning, it is not important that you must stay firm and be cheerful.
There is no point sulking over a small matter that can be resolved in a few minute.
Even if you want to rant, well, c’mom, we are all human and we do feel good to rant once a while. Do not let your anger continue for more than 2hrs if you want a happy day ahead.
We must attract happy people together, so that all of us will have a good day ahead.
Tell the bad luck to move off, because it is none of their business to be beside you.
