Hey Team!

Happy Thursday!

Do you ever have days where you feel charged up?

Maybe even a bit negative?

And.. those can end up being your most productive days?

Those are you "chip on your shoulder" days...

You have an edge... you set out on a mission...and you get it ALL done.

Did you start in the best of places? Nope.

But, you used that negative as fuel to execute.

Listen, I am all for being Positive, but I know that there are days when you just feel edgy. 

We all have had bosses in our life that have had the "Edge"..

We have seen athletes play with the "Edge"...

We have had the "Edge"...

And sometimes, the "Edge" is just what we need.

This is what I refer to as being "Positively Negative"...

Meaning, you are not Mr./Mrs/ Miss Happy Go Lucky that day... but, you use that negative to fuel positive results...

It is OK.

There is a movement today where everybody needs to be positive all the time... or should aspire to be... AND that is great... but not realistic.

I have worked with so many that have used negative energy, negative circumstances, and negative events as fuel to do great things.

Are they negative people? Nope.

Are they fueled by negative? Yup.

Does it work for them? Yup.

Are they miserable people? Nope.

Got it?

You can channel your emotions as fuel for greatness.

Never go against who you are... it will destroy you inside trying too hard to be something you are not... 

To lead in a way that is just not YOU is very difficult.

Stay True to YOU.

You will attract your tribe, your team, and most importantly a group that wants to play the same game as you.... 

Let' GO!

Have a great day!
