How positive thinking builds your skills

Years ago, I had a life-changing moment. After my knee surgery, I was stuck in my bed, in pain. Healing was a challenge, and in one month I was back on track. It was an amazing recovery, and I thought I could face every situation.

So why, years later, it was so difficult to change my job?

I was older and, I hope, smarter than my younger version. I was going through hard times at work, and feeling betrayed. And this scar was more painful than the physical one.

How could it be possible?

Anger is like fire. A few minutes per day, I allowed myself to be angry. Managing my rage meant working out, going for a walk, or just understanding that I was building my future.

Finding a strategy to go beyond negativity is enlightening.

I started helping people, and I didn’t have to do that much, just being there when needed. I apply the same rule now because it’s not just teaching but helping students to be their best version.

It works.
