The Good News about Bad Situations that Gets Better

Are you in the middle of a mess that just won’t quit? And is there very little you can do about it in the short-term to make it go away?

If so, take heart. Perhaps no amount of positive thinking will make a difference overnight. If that’s the case, so be it.

However, there is good news. You can change your mind and change the situation even if it will not be a quick fix.

Consider this from Zig Ziglar: “You cannot tailor-make the situations in life, but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations.”

So if your attitude is “I will do what is necessary to turn this around and do it as long as it takes to turn it around,” how can you lose? It may not be fast or even pretty.

However, it will be effective. Would that not shine a new light on the situation, dismal as it may be at present?

And the news gets better.

W. Clement Stone wrote “Every great man (or woman), every successful man, no matter what the field of endeavor, has known the magic that lies in these words: Every adversity has the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit.”

So not only can you turn things around. You can also realize an equivalent or greater benefit for your trouble.

In the long run, the situation might not be so bad after all.
