DECLARE YOURSELF A WINNER
I have been writing a lot about perspective and attitude the last while. Developing personal leadership capabilities that are enduring even in the midst of struggle can become the best coping mechanism you can have. Learning to embrace yourself amidst failures and defeats and still stand tall and know that you are pursuing life with excellence. There are definite times in life when you win some and many times when you lose some as well.
By adjusting your attitude and envisioning that you are a winner at life (even though you may not feel it right now) will help catapult you to a more positive place.
Surround yourself with positive supporting people and do the same for others when they need you as well. There is nothing more comforting to have the confidence that you are doing the best that you can.
