‘Peaks and Valleys: Making Good And Bad Times Work For You–At Work And In Life’ is a book written by Dr. Spencer Johnson. It is a short and relevant read when you are feeling very low or when you are at the peak of your life.
First of all, we need to understand that life can not be a flat or an upward sloping graph, it is undulating. Life is full of highs and lows. The ideal curve is when you don’t go down too much but you trace up too high; that is when you’re going to be scaling up your life.
We tend to feel sorry for ourselves when we hit the valley but that is the time to appreciate the opportunities coming our way, working hard, and learning from our mistakes. Now, if you are wondering as to why people face crashes after reaching the zenith, it is because they feel invincible and are consumed in arrogance.
Change your perspective, work relentlessly and never forget to Invest In Yourself. Keep climbing until you reach the mountain peak. Imagine the view from there!
