Good News Or Bad News – And The Difference Is?
Ever had someone give you bad news? What about positive news? What's the difference? Or is there any distinction? Good news - stuff or information that makes us happy satisfied, content, confident, secure and validated. The opposite of bad news. It would seem that there is a difference between good and bad news . Continue reading. Have you received bad news but in the end things went well or better than you expected? Have you ever received good news , but over time it became apparent that what was great news turned out to be not as good? Based on my personal experience, I can affirm that I've experienced all four - Good news that was good. A bad report that is bad. Good news that I thought was great, but ended in a bad way. A bad story that I thought was bad but ended up being positive. Are you confused? Yes, I can tell you that over time I was puzzled about the difference between these two apparent opposite messages. However, I discovered that good news or bad for one person could be seen as good news for another, and that positive news for one person may be perceived as bad.

In the end it's just news and what is good or bad or even neutral , is not the content but rather what we think of it, interpret it, assess it or react because of it. How do you make someone see bad news as good you might think? In the opposite way, how could someone perceive good news as bad? In short, each of us has our own background, experience or beliefs, as well as values and consequently, nobody sees the same thing , or experience in the same way. A person who is anxious or who is pessimistic, negative or impatient can think that a delay is bad when another person who understands the concept that there are things that we can control , and things we cannot control. So why get all upset about things you cannot control, or when you have control over it? get busy. In the end everything happens. All we need to do is interpret it in accordance with our goals, expectations or desires, and each one is individual to each of us. Let me provide you with a couple of personal examples. If you consider the reasoning, even though you may not have had exactly similar circumstances, when you consider it, I'll be you can relate. Prior to starting my career in training and speaking I was a national sales manager for an international business. It's a long story but the short part is that I had an issue with my boss, the president and , as a result, the president fired me. It's not a good thing, is it? This was what I needed to know that it was time to begin the journey that has taken me more than 40 years and let me travel around the world (25 countries to date) as well as work with impressive clients and viewers. In the end, this terrible news was really an opportunity to be happy. Here's another short one. Some years ago, I proposed to my wife, and she said yes. Good news right? (No judgements here, please). After doing my best for more than 15 years, I realized that it was the time to stop the relationship and what was the reason? Well, without the gruesome details The relationship was slowly degrading my self-esteem and confidence and positive mindset. I realized that I didn't feel like the person I had become in that relationship. We broke up, peacefully - but we broke up. A good thing as I was able - over time - to regain the things I'd lost emotionally and spiritually. Everyone has a story to tell and we all can create lists of positive and bad news we've received, but at the end, it's all news. In some of my corporate events, I will share this idea - stop asking your employees to share good news or bad news. Instead, solicit them to share the news and then you can decide which it is. Their definition might be totally different from yours. Also, as managers or executives don't broadcast - I have some good or bad news - simply inform your employees that you've received some news and let them take it in the way they see fit based on their personal perceptions, attitudes, mental models or experiences and how it will affect their lives personally. I'd like to make clear that I'm talking about denial, surrender, acceptance or apathy - just the willingness to acknowledge that there may be another perspective that you're being oblivious to because of your own history and perspectives, beliefs and judgments.
