Peaks & Valleys

It is natural for everyone everywhere to have Peaks and Valleys at work and in life.

Peaks and Valleys are not just the good and bad times that happen to you. They are also how you feel inside and respond to outside events.

Peaks and Valleys are connected.

The errors you make in today’s good times create tomorrow’s bad times and the wise things you do in today’s bad times create tomorrow’s good times.

If you do not learn in a valley you can become bitter. If you truly learn something in a valley you become better.

To Manage Your Good and Bad Times

Make reality your friend.
Whether you are temporarily up on a peak or down in a valley, ask yourself: What is the truth in this situation?
Truth - staying true to what you want and doing what really takes you there.

To Get Out Of A Valley Sooner

Find and use the good hidden in a bad time.
Relax, knowing that valleys end.
Do the opposite of what put you in the valley.
Get outside of yourself: Be of more service at work and more loving in life.

Avoid comparisons.
Uncover the good that is hidden in a bad time, and use it soon to your advantage.

To Stay On a Peak Longer

Appreciate and manage your good times wisely.
Be humble and grateful.
Do more of what got you there. Keep making things better.
Do more for others. Save resources for your upcoming valleys.

To Get To Your Next Peak

Follow your sensible vision.
Imagine yourself enjoying a better future in such specific, believable detail, that you soon enjoy doing what takes you there.

To Help People

Help people make good and bad times work for them, too.

Remember Life is Beautiful
