  • what went wrong, identify what went right first.

  • Here are a few actions you can take to make your world a little bit brighter.

  • First, eliminate "but" and "should" completely from your vocabulary.

  • Post positive and motivational quotes around your business environment, so that when you

  • see them, it will light you up and think in a different way.

  • And encourage your team to find out what's going right in the day's activities.

  • Keep a good stuff list. Post it somewhere, where you'll see it on

  • a regular basis. Start a kudos wall.

  • Put it where everyone will see it and let anyone post anything about anyone in your

  • business. And last, have a we did well meeting.

  • Call a meeting just to talk about what's going right in your business.
