Every situation or experience that is presented to us has both a positive and a negative component. Being able to see the positive is always simple. When we have an experience it is human nature to focus on, and to recognize, the positive. What makes someone experience personal success is when they can take an experience that is seemingly negative and find the positivity within it.
Even the very worst of experiences and situations has a positive side if you chose to see it. In every circumstance in life there is a lesson to be learned and if you can look at it and see the positive result that came out of it, then you will be able to take from all around you the opportunity to grow. Personal growth is achieved through the ability to learn from experiences the lesson contained within.
If you go through any experience, be it positive or negative, and do not learn from it, then it is a missed opportunity. Since in the end all we really are is a product of our experiences. The ability to find the positive in them is what sets an individual apart from others, and allows them to try things and take chances that they would not if we were only able to see the negativity of those things that they have endured.
The old proverb “that which does not kill us” is a fantastic example of this notion. That which does not kill us has the potential to make us shudder in the face of another chance, or excel, if presented with the opportunity again, depending on the interpretation of the event. It is all in the perception of the experience itself.
Staying positive and seeing the good in a situation does wonders, not only for your personal growth, but so too for your general disposition overall. Negative breeds negative and if you can only see the bad in an experience than you will fail to grow from it. Personal success is defined by each individual differently. The one constant, however, is that it is a perception of idealism for the individual.
Only if one is happy and continues to grow as a human being in both spirit and soul, can they achieve the ultimate in growth as a person overall. The next time you are forced to endure a situation which presents itself as negative try to find the positive side to it. It has a way of overtaking the negative overall, and can leave you with an experience that will further your personal success.
