At any time endured someone give you bad news? Think about good news? What’s the big difference or is there a difference? Australian news
Good news – stuff or information that produces us happy, content, reassured, secure and validated.
Not so good news – the opposite.
Therefore, any difficulty . there is a difference between negative and positive news – read on.
Have you ever ever got bad news in the end things turned away well or better than you anticipated? Have you ever received very good news and over time what you thought was good media became not so good?
From personal experience My spouse and i can tell you which i have experienced all four –
Very good news that was good.
Unfortunate thing that was bad.
Very good news that I actually thought was good but ended up being bad.
Unfortunate thing that I thought was bad and finished up being good.
Puzzled yet? Well I know that over time We were often uncertain of the difference between these two apparent opposite communications. But then I discovered that sometimes bad media well for someone can be perceived as very good news for someone else and that good news to 1 person over time can be perceived as bad.
Confused? Allow me to explain.
Found in the end it’s just news and what makes it bad or good or even neutral is not the news itself but how we understand it, judge it, assess it or react because than it.
How can someone perceive unfortunate thing as good you might ask? Or maybe the opposite, how could someone perceive good news as bad?
Technically – each of us has a unique history, experiences, beliefs and values and therefore probably none of us ever see a similar thing or circumstance in the same way.
An individual who is a worrier, negative, pessimistic or irritated might see a wait as bad when another person who understands the concept of there are things we can control and things we cannot control so why get all upset about something you can’t control or if you can control it get busy.
Found in the end exactly what happens – just happens and what we do is interpret it all structured on our expectations, goals, needs or mindsets and all of these are unique for each and every of all of us.
Let me give you a few personal examples. And if you will consider the explanation while you may well not have had exactly the same circumstances, if you will consider it I’ll be you can relate.
Preceding to staring my speaking and training career I used to be a national sales director for an international business. Long story but the short side is My spouse and i had an issue with my boss, the director and because of this he terminated me. Bad news, right? Well that was all Required to decide it was the perfect time to get started a career that has persisted over 40 years and has allowed me to see the world (25 countries to date) and work with some incredible clients and audiences. Thus in the end this bad news was actually good news.
Here’s another quick one.
Years ago We proposed to my better half and she said certainly. Good news right? (No judgments here please). Good over time after doing my best for more than fifteen years We decided it turned away time to end it and why? Well, without the gruesome details, the relationship was little by little eroding my self-esteem, confidence and optimistic mindset and i also decided that We didn’t like who My spouse and i was becoming because romantic relationship. We parted, amicably – but we parted. Very good news as I was able – over time – to regain all I had lost – emotionally and spiritually.
Many of us have our stories and all can create data of good news and unfortunate thing we have received but in the finish is actually all just news.
During some of my company programs I share this simple concept – stop asking your employees once and for all news or bad reports – just ask them for this news and then you decide which it is. Because their description could be different than yours.
