Different is just that - different. Different is not better or worse. Different is just different.

When you look at your loss, whatever it is, as permanent and all-encompassing, then sure enough, you’ll feel devastated and unable to let go and move on. If, on the contrary, you look at your loss as temporary, something to learn from - then chances are excellent that you will be able to move on to even better things.

A boss you don’t like is not necessarily a bad boss. Sometimes you just don't get along.. But, in those cases where it’s not just a personality clash there are workarounds.

Employees will perform better when bosses encourage them to think of how they will succeed instead of focusing on how they can improve.

the more you focus on "ain’t it awful" the less you see opportunities for something better. What you focus on, whatever you give your attention to, determines what you perceive. When you’re fixated on negative past experiences with your boss, you are missing what might benefit you here, now, in your present. You aren’t even considering what possibilities lie in the future - or in the next department over, or in that free-lance gig someone mentioned, or . . . you get the drift.

A new study* by the American Psychological Association (APA) shows that people who feel gratitude are more likely to sleep better, be in a better mood, have less fatigue and have improved cardiac health. What does this mean for employers? Simply showing employees that you appreciate them on a daily basis could reduce the risk of heart and other illnesses in general, which in turn lowers absenteeism.

Workers who feel their employer appreciates their work are not only going to be motivated to work harder, but will have more energy and, according to the results of the study, will be less likely to have heart issues.
How can managers show gratitude at work? Acknowledge employees when they do something right instead of only pointing out their mistakes. When mistakes do happen, employers should not play the blame game—focus instead on fixing the problem. You can always later discuss with the employee how to avoid the error in the future, while still conveying that you value the worker’s contribution. Workers shouldn’t be walking on pins and needles, afraid to do anything, always fearful of the boss’s wrath.
The workplace model for many businesses is designed for failure. I can’t fathom why many employers continue to browbeat, demean and ruthlessly overwork their employees, thinking that this is what motivates their employees. The APA study is just one of many that show these tactics are the antithesis of what’s needed to actually improve productivity and worker loyalty.

*The study was made up of 186 men and women who were diagnosed with asymptomatic (Stage B) heart failure. Some were asked to keep “gratitude journals” for eight weeks, writing down what they were grateful for. Those who kept the journal saw marked improvement in heart health.
