We all have felt deflated at times when we look at the numbers from the last quarter or the success of a major competitor or the promotion of a co-worker. Rather than staying deflated, Bill O’Reilly offers some ‘like-it-or-not’ wisdom to push us forward.
“For all of its faults, it gives most hardworking people a chance to improve themselves economically, even as the deck is stacked in favor of the privileged few. Here are the choices most of us face in such a system: Get bitter or get busy.”
– Bill O’ Reilly
Questions to Ask Yourself:
- Name a time recently when you felt as though the deck was ‘stacked against you.’ How did you handle it? What was your response?
- In your current situation would you say you are most often getting bitter or getting busy?
- If you are most often getting bitter, what are some proactive steps you can take to move beyond bitterness?
