There is always going to be bad things happening in our lives at different points in time. Whether it is at home or at work, this fact of life is inevitable. How we react to these negative events will have a great deal of impact on whether it will be something that continues to negatively affect us or can be used to improve ourselves in some fashion. When bad things occur on the job it is important to take a step back and be self-aware of how the event is affecting your focus, mood, thoughts, communication with others, and your job performance. The fact of the matter is, the event happened and it is now over. You need to decide if you are going to continue to dwell on it and let it have control over you or learn from it and move on. If you realize that 99% of bad events are learning lessons and flip it into a positive, you will become a much stronger and able individual.
