Never make a negative decision when you’re feeling low

Robert Schuller, author of many best selling books on ‘possibility thinking’, tells of a winter day when he and his dad cut down a dead tree on the family farm. But in the spring they found new shoots sprouting from the trunk. Robert’s Dad said to him, ‘I thought for sure it was dead; but now I see there is still life at the taproot of the old tree.’ Then he looked at his son and said, “Bob, there’s an important lesson in this that I don’t want you ever to forget. Never cut down a tree in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in a low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst mood. Wait. Be patient. The spring will come.’
That’s good advice. Like the Bible says, ‘Weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.’
