B98 FM Wichita Radio Interview April 25, 2014

April 25, 2014

In this segment I talk with Lucas and Kathy about the recent layoffs in Wichita. Bad things happen to good people all the time. In life we will have difficult events. We must remember that the event does not define us. As Zig Ziglar always said, “Failure is an event not a person.” We must be proactive focus on what we can do to better our situation and not focus on things we cannot. My mentor and friend, Ed Foreman says, “when the pain to change is less than the pain to stay the same we then move forward.” For some people this happens very quickly. They see that focusing on the negative and things they cannot change do them no good. In the situation where a job is lost, it doesn’t matter how long you complain about losing your job it will not change the event. You might get some temporary comfort by watching the news day after day seeing how unfair it was the plant or business you worked at fired so many people, but that still does not change the event. You and only you determine where you go from here. As I state in this interview so many of the great minds of our era accomplished great things after bad events in their lives. They did not see them as failures but events to learn and grow from. I know it is not easy but you control where you go from the bad event in your life.
