Time to be your best

When things seem to be at their worst is the ideal time for you to be at your best. When the outlook is decidedly negative that’s the time you need to be aggressively positive.

When the situation is difficult and getting worse, there’s no need to deny reality or hide from the truth. Neither is there any need, however, to get pulled down with the negativity.

The greatest opportunities come from the most difficult problems. In times of great challenge, moving positively forward -- even if by just a little bit -- can dramatically alter the momentum for the better. And then that momentum can grow quickly.

Keep going. Keep moving steadily forward, especially when circumstances seem to be working against you. Remember -- that’s when you can make the most meaningful positive difference.
