It can happen in any environment: home, work, a social activity, etc..
After I finished reporting the issue I detected and provided the effective solution I proposed, a person commented in hindsight, “I have already told you so, blah, blah…”
This kind of comments usually made me feel a little uncomfortable, which sounded to me that my credit was taken away from me. It seemed that I would not amount to anything without his previous wise words (although I couldn’t remember clearly if he really said so).
However, this time I replied to his comments cheerfully and naturally, “Yeah, I think so too. The solution seems effective…”
I am a little amazed at my response. I didn’t argue with him if he really had such foresight. My emotion wasn’t affected as well. I managed to stand in my position and maintain a positive attitude.
I owe my improvement to the several books I am currently reading. It is about the difference between scarcity mentality and abundance mentality.
