There is a story about a farmer who would regularly complain about the weather – especially when there was no rain. He noticed his complaining was bringing the atmosphere at home down. It was negatively impacting his wife and kids. So he decided to reframe his view. Now when it doesn’t rain he walks in the door with a smile saying in an excited voice, ‘We’re one day closer to rain!’
The situation is no different – there still is no rain. But framing of it is very different.
In your work on change, how can you reframe the negative into a more uplifing statement or question?
