    At TED2011 Conference, Ralph Langner, a German cyber-security expert and an international leading researcher in SCADA security, discusses the work he and his team did to tear apart the Stuxnet worm and work out exactly what it does and what it’s target and ultimate purpose were.  A very sobering breakdown.

    I was reminded of something today that is one of the biggest issues I see in companies I audit… Negativity.. and Negative People.

    Negativity is the root of many enterprise issues.  It is very expensive, possibly costing companies billions of dollars each year.

    I have conducted hundreds of audits across the fortune 1000, and there always seems to be one or two people who you encounter during the audit that ooze negativity. …. “we can’t do that”… “management does not give me the capability to change that”…. “that will never work”… “write it up… will not change a thing.. I have no authority”

    Change in life.. in an organization, in an individual,  can only come when we shed the negative opinions, negative personalities, and negative people.  Negativity sucks away energy.  If part of the negativity stems from ones attitude or perspective, one needs to commit to at the beginning of each day and each activity to find something positive in yourself and in others around you.

    If the people around you are negative and you can’t change that, either remove yourself from the situation or view it simply as one obstacle you face in pursuing your own potential. Stay focused on your own goals and make the best of the situation.

    Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results in yourself and the enterprise.

    “Before success comes in any man’s life, he’s sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures.  When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That’s exactly what the majority of men do.”
    ~ Napoleon Hill

    If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.

    If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.

    If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

    – Sun Tzu, the Art of War
