Sometimes it is very challenging to stay positive in a negative situation.
In many instances, when we find ourselves in these situations, it becomes very easy to adopt a negative mindset and, in the process, blame, everyone and everything for the world of problems happening in our lives or at our organization.
It's tough, I know, but that's what being a leader is all about, and that's why leadership is not for the faint at heart. Your leadership is tested in a crisis, and you can immediately deduce what kind of leader you are when you are faced with challenging situations that stretch you to think beyond your comfort zone.
It's all a matter of mindset because, as the leader, you have to inspire your team to believe that everything will be okay, which is why being positive in a negative situation is not naive; it's leadership.
