Believe While Others ….

Being in transition or in a stagnated career can frustrate and de-motivate even the most positive thinkers. What I have found that helps our career coaching clients when they hit a down period is some motivational material to help them restore a positive outlook and a balanced perspective.

The following is a nice poem that I have kept over the years by William Arthur Ward. Many of you may also be familiar with it. I find that this can help me re-energize and affirm my self belief. I hope that it can work for you as well.

While Others Are …

By William Arthur Ward

Believe while others are doubting.

Plan while others are playing.

Study while others are sleeping.

Decide while others are delaying.

Prepare while others are daydreaming.

Begin while others are procrastinating.

Work while others are wishing.

Save while others are wasting.

Listen while others are talking.

Smile while others are frowning.

Commend while others are criticizing.

Persist while others are quitting
