…Thank you. You forced me to dig really deep and find at least one positive from this experience. Instead I found 5 positive things.
- I have grown increasingly careless about leaving valuables in my car. Your action is a not-so-subtle-reminder I need to be more responsible and not leave anything of value in my car.
- The repair will not be cheap but I also acknowledge that I’m blessed to be able to afford the repair. Not everyone has that luxury.
- You forced me to find a way to apply Dale Carnegie’s principles to an event that instinctively, and justifiably angered me—and would anger anyone if it happened to them. I did not immediately want to apply the principles but I’m proud to say I turned my mindset around within a 24-hour period.
- Jim Rohn says if people are careless with small matters imagine how they deal with important matters. I hope you choose to change your path in life— it’s a missed opportunity not to and you’re perfectly capable of transforming your life into something positive, important and meaningful.
- I have chosen to profit from my losses by writing and sharing my story. This not only helps me but perhaps it will also help others in being more cautious with their belongings in their car and also determined to make lemonade when life hands them lemons.
