We all want our businesses, work-life, marriages and friendships to flourish. We make extraordinary efforts to see that we succeed, however, sometimes things just don’t go our way. The rare negative situation and feelings are weighted heavier than the more frequent good times we experience.  Mathematician and researcher, Marcial Losada, worked for years in industry studying the characteristics of high-performing business teams.  He found that for teams to flourish they need to have 3 positive outcomes to every 1 negative outcome.  Knowing that good times far outweigh the bad times, we need to begin to look for the positives in order to flourish.  If you want to build long lasting relationships, bounce back from adversity, have more joy/hope; then we need to start looking for the goodness that happens in our lives.  A single hug may not change your day, but when you accumulate them over time they can change your life.  Be great today!
