The world is full of people who drag their unhappiness around with them wherever they go. And worse, they usually tend to be very unlucky.
Power Players never try to rehabilitate these people. They know these types have a terrible attitude and they will rarely change. They’ll always find the dark cloud in a sliver lining and their negative energy can infect any room like a virus.
Power Players immediately sidestep these people, and you should too. It isn’t your job to try to convince naysayers to come over to the bright side. Nor it is your job to expend your energy propping up unhappy people who enjoy their pity party.
It’s only natural that from time to time we all have a bad day or lose our way. What we’re taking about here are the toxic types who settle into their unhappy, unlucky rhythm and won’t budge. Identify them early and move them on. Power Players always do and it’s one of the best decisions they can ever make.
