Learn From Your Losses.

Encourager-In-Chief: March 4th, 2020

Turn your negatives into positives.

I recently suffered the loss of my beloved mentor, client, role model, and friend Sharon Mitzall. That loss was devastating, but it instilled in me some very important lessons. First, don’t take anybody for granted. Fortunately, in this particular situation, Sharon was in no doubt of how much I appreciated her and valued her as a cherished person in my life. That’s not always the case. If it’s not the case for you with somebody with whom you have a bond, I encourage you not to hesitate and mend the riff at your earliest possibility. Surely, the day will come when you will either say, “I wish I had,” or, “I’m glad I did.”

Second, look for the positives that came out of the negative. I had originally intended to have Sharon Mitzall write the forward to my latest book, How to Wow! Since that was no longer possible, I asked my number one seminar attendee and friend, Elaine Bledsoe, to take over that duty. My circumstances allowed me to bond even closer with someone else who means so much to me.

Third, I realized that Sharon is not really gone because I pray for her more than 10 times a day; so, she’s always in my thoughts and prayers. Sharon was my benchmark for customer service. When I’m facing a dilemma with a client, I always think to myself, “If I asked Sharon for her advice, what would she say about this?”

Chances are you’re going to lose somebody very near and dear to your heart much sooner than you would want. Don’t wait until then to make the most of the time you have together. Take lots of pictures. Make videos. Create cherished memories. This is what you will gain from your loss.

For everything you lose, you gain something.
