I’ve worked with hundreds and hundreds of clients all over the world. In the end, the most successful one’s see things from a different perspective.

Here’s a few examples:

  • Obstacle vs. Opportunity
  • Fear vs. Brave
  • Pain vs. Gain
  • Resist vs. Surrender
  • Grudge vs. Forgive
  • Expense vs. Investment
  • I Should, I Would, I Could vs. I Will
  • Difficult vs. Effortless
  • Negative vs. Positive

It’s all a matter of perspective.

Which brings us to an interesting composition.

Hasdic Jewish 11th grader Chanie Gorkin’s poem went viral last week after a  manager for a North London concert hall posted it on a wall and a photo was taken and tweet blasted on Twitter.

The teenager junior from the all-girls Lubavitch high school Beth Rivkah in Crown Heights, spent numerous hours on this assignment, writing and editing until she got it just right.

Worst Day Ever? – by Chanie Gorkin

Today was the absolute worst day ever
And don’t try to convince me that
There’s something good in every day
Because, when you take a closer look,
This world is a pretty evil place.
Even if
Some goodness does shine through once in a while
Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.
And it’s not true that
It’s all in the mind and heart
True happiness can be attained
Only if one’s surroundings are good
It’s not true that good exists
I’m sure you can agree that
The reality
My attitude
It’s all beyond my control
And you’ll never in a million years hear me say
Today was a very good day

Now read it from bottom to top, the other way,
And see what I really feel about my day.
