Today’s secret is ‘assume the positive’. It is really easy for us to make up and assume negative things about people. “She’s out to get me.” “He is stupid.” “My coach doesn’t like me.” As I often explain when I give keynote talks, most often people aren’t out to get you even if it feels that way. When we go to talk to someone with a negative assumption they are likely to become defensive pretty quickly. If we can make up something positive instead, “My coach is trying to make me a better player”, or at least neutral, “I wonder what is going on”, we are more likely to have a conversation than a confrontation.
I look forward to seeing you again in future videos and I wish you the most from your potential
