“Have a good day, until somebody screws it up for you.” What kind of negative greeting was that? This was a twisted, Murphy’s Law curse.
In other words–have a good day, but be wary, because negative things were bound to happen. When negative things happened, boo birds of unhappiness, chirped, “See, I told you so.”
When working in sales, positive benefits were emphasized, negative disclaimers mentioned, but de-emphasized.
There has to be a reason to get up in the morning. And, for me, that is thinking positively.
Not that negative things weren’t possible, just that, I didn’t choose to dwell on them.
