Accentuate the Positive
Two Physicians were overheard discussing a paper they were to deliver at a national meeting of cancer specialists. One was complaining bitterly. "I don't understand it, Bob. We use the same drugs, the same dosage and the same schedule of treatment. Yet I get a 22% recovery rate and you get a 74% recovery rate. How do you explain that?"
The other responded, "We both use Etoposide, Platinol, Oncovin and Hydroxurea. You tell people you're giving them EPOH. I tell people that I'm giving them HOPE, and I work hard to emphasize that they have a chance."
Are you accentuating the positive in your relationships with others? If not, start now. It makes a difference.
