Author:  David Steinberg, IWA

(-)    I am a loser
(+)   I am a winner, not a whiner

(-)    I am a deadbeat
(+)   I meet my obligations to my company and myself

(-)    I am worthless
(+)   I create value and value what I create

(-)    I am willing to take any job at low wages
(+)   I will take a position at reasonable compensation

(-)    I am unwilling to change
(+)   I am flexible

(-)    I am too fixed in my beliefs
(+)   I have fixed values, but my beliefs can change

(-)    I am too old and companies don’t hire older people
(+)   My experience taught me how to figure out to get the job done

(-)    I am unemployed therefore there is something wrong with me
(+)   This is my golden opportunity to do what I really want to do

(-)     I have too much experience that the company can’t afford to pay me what I am worth.
(+)     I am willing to be flexible in my salary expectations because I know how to create value to my company

(-)     I am too slow
(+)     When I take my time, I do it right the first time so it doesn’t have to be done over.

(-)     I won’t be in the workforce very long because I will retire soon
(+)     I accept the fact that I have many more years of accomplishment ahead of me.

(-)     Only the employed need to apply.
(+)     Don’t need to answer that one. or, as Groucho Marx said, “Any club that would have me as a member isn’t worth joining.”
