It is natural for everyone everywhere to have peaks and valleys at work and in life.


Peaks and valleys are not just the good and bad times that happen to you. They are also how you feel inside and respond to outside events.


Peaks and valleys are connected. The errors you make in today’s good times create tomorrow’s bad times. And the wise things you do in today’s bad times create tomorrow’s good times.


Peaks are moments when you appreciate what you have. Valleys are moments when you long for what is missing.


You cannot always control external events. But you can control your personal peaks and valleys by what you believe and what you do.


The path out of the valley appears when you choose to see things differently.


You change your valley into a peak. When you find and use the good. That is hidden in the bad time.


You can have fewer bad times when you appreciate and manage your good times wisely.


The most common reason you leave a peak too soon is arrogance, masquerading as confidence.

The most common reason you stay in a valley too long is fear, masquerading as comfort.



A great way to get to your next peak is to follow your sensible vision. Imagine yourself enjoying your better future in such specific, believable detail that you soon enjoy doing what take you there!


The pain in a valley can wake you up to a truth you have been ignoring.


Avoid believing things are better than they really are when you are on a peak, or worse than they really are when you are in a valley. Make reality your friend.


You create a peak when you truly follow you sensible vision. Your fear fades and you become more peaceful and successful.


You get out of a valley sooner when you manage to get outside of yourself: At work, by being of greater service; and in life, by being more loving.
