Don’t Be an Eeyore Personality – Channel Your Winnie-the-Pooh & Tigger Sides



When something doesn’t go your way, how do you react?

Maybe you’re the type of person who exhibits an Eeyore personality. You remember Eeyore, right? He’s the old-looking gray donkey character from A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh book. Eeyore was very pessimistic, gloomy and extremely depressed. He did not have a winning attitude and always thought, like Chicken Little, the sky was falling. So where do you fit in this scenario? Maybe you’re more like a Winnie-the-Pooh or a Tigger personality.

In the business world, you should combine the best of all three worlds—taking snippets from Eeyore, Winnie-the-Pooh and Tigger. Meaning that you need to be a realist like Eeyore, a dreamer, like Pooh and an energetic like Tigger. All these aspects are needed to be sure that you will make the right decisions in your business.

You need to be realistic and know where your boundaries are and how to take the necessary steps to bypass those boundaries, if needed.

However, you must not take on too much of this type of personality because depression is a big part of it and you can’t allow doubt and depression to rule your business acumen. You’ll never find success that way.

You need to bring the dreams and visions of the Pooh personality into your business sense.

Dreaming is what will fire the desire to get ahead in the business world. If you don’t have a dream to succeed then you won’t have the drive the will keep you going when things get tough. There will be many obstacles that head your way and if you don’t have the determination to pull through when those roadblocks appear, success won’t come easily.

Combining the reality of Eeyore and the dreaming of Pooh with the energy of Tigger will take your business acumen to the next level. You need to have the energy and perseverance to get all the daily tasks done and jump through every hoop which you need to pass to get to the end of the race and win. Without the necessary energy, you will falter when the going gets tough.

So in regard to your business acumen, which personality are you? Or are you a combination of one or two or all three? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
