Breaking the Downward Spiral

Tuesday, April 11, 2006

Break the negative momentum

Many obstacles don't even need to be there. They can
disappear as soon as you turn your attention toward
something more positive.

Some of the difficult problems you face are mostly of your
own creation. Just as you created them, you can let them go
and they are gone.

Certainly there are very real difficulties that you must
address in the course of your life and your work. Yet many
of the burdens under which you labor have been built up over
time by your own thoughts and habits.

What seems to be a big problem may actually be a very small
and easily resolved issue that your mind has made into a
monster. Stop focusing on how bad it is and start focusing
on something positive that you can do in response.

That can quickly cut it down to a manageable size, or even
eliminate the problem altogether. Once you break the
negative momentum that your mind has established, things
will soon look a whole lot better.

It's important to effectively address the challenges that
come along, yet there is no need to blow them out of
proportion. Keep your focus on the good you can do, on the
value you can create, and most of the difficulties will be
far less difficult.
