Tough Times Never Last, but Tough People Do!
Thoughts cause feelings, and the wrong kinds of thoughts can cause stressful feelings. We canlook at the same event different ways. One is in the optimistic way and the other is pessimistically.It is the age old debate of whether to look at the glass as half full or as half empty.It helps if you can learn to look at the good things in life rather than the ugly. For example, if yougot into a car accident and damaged your car, you can sit there and feel sorry for yourself, orangry for losing the car. These are all self-defeating. On the other hand, you can thank God thatyou were not killed or, worse yet, maimed in the car accidents. When you look at life's events likethat you will have something to smile at every event and that is the power of positive living.
Guidelines for looking at problems in the proper perspective:
* Every Living Human Being Has Problems.1. Perhaps you are unhappy with your work. Isn't it good that you have a job rather than beingunemployed? Many people have the mistaken notion that successful people do not have anyproblems. It is not true. Success tends to breed its own set of problems.2. Everyone has problems. A problem-free life is an illusion - a mirage in the desert. Accept thefact that everyone has problems. This will help you to move on with your life rather than sittingand feeling pity for yourself.* Every Problem Has A Limited Life Span1. Every mountain has a peak and every valley has a low point. Similarly, life has its ups anddowns. No one is up all the time or down all the time.2. Problems do get resolved in the long term. They don't last forever. History teaches that everyproblem has a limited life span.3. Your problems will not live forever; but you will! Storms are followed by sunshine. Winter isfollowed by spring. Your problems will get resolved given enough time.
* Every Problem Holds Positive Possibilities1. There are two sides to every coin. What may be a problem for one could be interestingopportunity to someone else.2. Hospitals are there because people get sick; garages are there because cars do break down;lawyers are there because people get in trouble with the law occasionally. Every cloud has a silverlining.* Every Problem Will Change You1. When me meet problems head on in life, they leave their indelible mark on us. The experiencecould make you better or worse. It is up to you. What is certain is that problems never leave usthe same way they found us. We will change.2. For example, let us say that you lost your job. You can sit and feel sorry for yourself. Or youcan be aggressive and decide to do something about it. You are better than them. You want toshow them what a mistake they did in firing you.3. You have to be fired before you can be fired up. That may be wake-up call you needed beforeembarking on a successful mission. Again, for every problem, there is a positive and negative side.Look for the positive side and work on it.* You Can Choose What Your Problem Will Do To You1. You may not be able to control the problems, but you certainly can control your reaction orresponse to the problem.2. You can turn your pain into profanity or into poetry. The choice is up to you. You can controlthe reaction even if you cannot control the problem. You control the effect of the problem bycontrolling the reaction.3. It can make you tough or tender. It can make you better or bitter. It all depends on you.
