At any time endured someone give you bad news? Think about good news? What’s the big difference or is there a difference? news
Good news – stuff or information which makes us happy, content, reassured, secure and validated.
Unfortunate thing – the opposite.
Therefore, apparently there is a difference between negative and positive news – read on.
Maybe you have ever got bad news however in the end things turned away well or better than you anticipated? Have you ever received great news and over time what you thought was good information became not so good?
From personal experience We can tell you i have experienced all four –
Great news that was good.
Unfortunate thing that was bad.
Great news that We thought was good but ended up being bad.
Unfortunate thing that I thought was bad and finished up being good.
Baffled yet? Well I know that over time My spouse and i was often uncertain of the difference between these two apparent opposite communications. But then I discovered that sometimes bad media well for someone can be perceived as very good news for someone else and that good news to 1 person over time can be perceived as bad.
Confused? I want to explain.
Found in the end it’s just news and what makes it bad or good or even neutral is not the news itself but how we see it, judge it, examine it or react because from it.
How can someone perceive not so good news as good you might ask? Or maybe the opposite, how could someone perceive good news as bad?
Basically – each of us has a unique history, experiences, beliefs and values and therefore none of them of us ever see exactly the same thing or circumstance in the same way.
Someone who is a worrier, negative, pessimistic or rapide might see a postpone as bad when another person who understands the concept of there are things we can control and things we cannot control so why get all upset about something you can’t control or if you can control it get busy.
Found in the end exactly what happens – just happens and what we do is interpret it all primarily based on our expectations, goals, needs or mindsets and all of these are unique for each and every of all of us.
Let me give you a few personal examples. And if you will consider the explanation even if you may well not have had exactly the same circumstances, if you will contemplate it I’ll be you can relate.
Previous to staring my speaking and training career I had been a national sales administrator for an international firm. Long story but the short side is We had an issue with my boss, the director and therefore he terminated me. Bad news, right? Well that was all Required to decide it was a chance to get started a career that has survived over 40 years and has allowed me to see the world (25 countries to date) and work with some great clients and audiences. Therefore in the end this bad news really was good news.
