Dig deeper

How is it that some people can almost always find a way to turn negative circumstances into positive, valuable accomplishments? They do it by digging deeper. How can defeat be turned into victory? By digging deeper.

When you experience sadness, for example, it can be very negative and disheartening. Yet when you dig deeper, and look beyond the circumstances of the moment, the picture changes. For sadness is possible only when you truly care. And the fact that you care is indeed a positive thing.

In the same way, when you dig deeper into a difficult problem you can find an enormous opportunity. Or when you dig deeper into your frustrations you can discover your positive, driving purposes.

Dig deeper, past the negativity that sits on the surface. When you do, you’ll find a huge reserve of positive power just waiting to be put to use.
