If you are one of those persons who constantly state,
I am so stressed out!
I do not have time for anything!
Life was more relaxed before!
I feel so overwhelmed!
What price are you paying for feeling this way, in your personal relationships? Your health? Your job’s performance? The quality of your life?
Many people feel they are victims of what is happening to them.
Do you feel you are one of them? What are you doing about it?
Do you expect things will get better by themselves or are you taking action?
It all starts with our mind. It all starts with our attitude. It all starts with our commitment.
I once heard a wonderful audiobook by the world-known speaker Jim Rohn, where he said these wise words:
If you want to be successful, study success!
If you want to be happy, study happiness!
I tell you….if you want to be relaxed and calm….learn techniques to be calmer and relaxed.
Many people say to me: How lucky, you do not have problems!
Well…I do face many challenges in life and what I do is, I choose to respond instead of reacting.
You can also learn how to do it!
First, I have learned to choose my vocabulary. I do my best to avoid using the word problem (sometimes it slips, but I correct myself immediately!).
I choose to use the word, challenge. And then, I transform it into opportunity. Just with that slight change…my whole perspective changes.
Just like you, I face difficult situations. However, I do not allow them to control my life. As I stated before, If it is something under my control, I solve it. If it is something, I can not control, I cope with it in a mindful way, and turn into gratitude for the beautiful things I have in my life.
I’ve been through difficult life transitions. I do have challenges in my life.
Still, I have learned to handle them in a positive way.
If I can do it, so do you!
Remember your life has meaning!
Have a beautiful day,
