Understanding People: Expect the Negative

People do strange things. They surprise me all the time – sometimes good, sometimes bad. You never know how a human will react or proact. I had this crazy strategy I developed when I was a kid…expect the worst and plan for it, then you will always be prepared and if you get better than the worst…well BONUS! This way you can never be let down. It actually worked. Many people might call it negative thinking but to me it was the opposite…it allowed me to think positive because the negative was already sorted. The problem is somewhere along the line I stopped thinking this way, I got ‘comfortable’ and that’s when life slapped me in the face. I’m not sure what the moral here is…expect the least and you will always be in the positive? Sure. Why not?
