The table below has some examples of how you can flip words over to reframe certain situations. When you start to feel pressured or tense in a situation, try to use reframing to look at the situation differently.
|bossy||a leader/an organizer/visionary|
|attends to details/fastidious/thorough|
won't follow rules
|creative/innovative/has leadership potential|
|talks too much||outgoing/problem-solves verbally/sociable/knowledgeable|

With gratitude, I base this blog on the book "Learn to be an Optimist: A Practical Guide to Achieving Happiness" by Lucy MacDonald, a Quebec-based motivational speaker with an academic background in psychology and counseling.
