These days the concept of “positive thinking” is at its peak and cannot pass unnoticed. We see motivational quotes all over our social media no matter what group we are in. We are taught to smile and stay kind and positive all the time regardless of the circumstances. This trend goes so far that it actually claims that the more troubles we have the more positive we should be, since this can transform the energy and turn our lives around.
You probably heard something along the lines “not everyone is born to be a leader”. In the business world we can rephrase it to “not everyone is meant to be a manager”. While this might be partially true, too many people get this phrase wrong and often use it as an explanation for being or not being successful, hiding the real reason behind the outcome.
