The Key to Success

So, I've been pretty frustrated and pissed off at work lately (I know- talking about work AGAIN!!! I promised not to do that). This weekend it seems to have come to a head in my brain, and I actually spent most of Friday and Saturday feeling quite depressed over the many disappointments I feel.

I need to change my attitude. I've been reading some books on how to improve inter-personal relationships, and I see how hypocritical I've been of criticizing others, while I'm doing nothing to improve the negativity within the workplace. I've realized that I hold the key to my own success- not others. It's in my attitude, and how I approach issues at the workplace. Lately, it's been pretty poorly. I know I can do better. I've done better in the past, but I got upset over being passed over for a promotion, and got sucked into the negativity and toxicity and resentment that was growing within all of the other team members (not just me). It was wrong of me to get sucked into it, but I can't change the past. I can only approach next week with a renewed, more positive attitude.

  1. It is so easy to get sucked into negativity at work. I find myself doing the same thing. Hopefully things will change for you soon! *hugs*
