We all know how easy it is to become inundated with life's daily minutiae and how quickly one negative thought can become a cavalcade of misery -at least in our minds!
We have to be able to identify that one negative thought that starts the entire process rolling!
Recognize it as it changes our moods to anxiety, fear, sadness, worry, or depression!
And stop it dead in it's tracks!!!
Nothing -and I mean NOTHING - is as bad as it seems!
Focus on your "Mental Ace in the Hole" when you feel your mood change - FOCUS on action, planning, implementation of what you WANT to do next - NOT on the current situation!
Do not lament and wallow in the current temporary state you are in!
Instead truly picture and visualize what you WANT to be, to do, to feel, to accomplish.
Like watching a trailer to a movie, close your eyes and really see and feel yourself in that achieved state!!
Do this whenever fear or anxiety overtakes you!!
Hone this trailer skill and master this vision of what you WANT in your life and it will begin to materialize!
Hope is a powerful thing - and Hope keeps all of us alive, either barely alive or thriving!
It does not matter to what degree!
Forget the past - it is over and done!
All that matters is that we keep Hope close to our hearts, on our lips, and NEVER doubt it's power to deliver us to peace, joy and love!!!
Have a crummy job, or no job?
Do not panic or let fear take hold! FOCUS on what is next - NOT on the current state!
VISUALIZE yourself at your next job - feel it, taste it - and take the steps necessary to put you in that direction!!
Nothing stays the same - so why convince yourself that you will always be in the spot you are today??
YOU control it - you are NOT a victim or a passenger in your life!!
You are the CAPTAIN!!
Step 1 - Set the GOAL
Step 2 - VISUALIZE the outcome
Step 3 - Take ACTION to make it a reality!
Step 4 - Repeat
You are not alone - you ALWAYS have someone willing to help, guide, support, and see you through to your goals!
Change the current attitude you have -and if necessary FAKE HAPPINESS!!
That is right - FAKE it as if you were on Broadway - but behind that facade KEEP THE SPIRIT OF HOPE and CHANGE alive!
It will transform into reality if you simply keep it in your heart and have FAITH!!
More people than you know care about you - want you to succeed, and are there for you in time of need!
And you WILL succeed!!
It is inevitable!!
