Welcome to C90 Day 43. I see that I did 2 day 41's and skipped day 42. Sometimes it hard to keep track. Feeling good today, much different than yesterday's work anxiety. I'm not sure what spawned that but it happens. Life happens for us, not too us!! That's a perception which I find very inspirational. It's a mindset, a shift change, a perspective. When you look at it the opposite way, there doesn't seem to be any way that you can win. Not that it's about winning vs losing but if you say life happens to us and look at all the "bad" things that'll happen or can happen, you'll never get out of your own way. You'll constantly be under the gun and have zero reason to do anything. In discussions I've had with people who question the purpose of positive thinking, people often see it as a fake, cheesy thing that doesn't actually work. What most don't understand is that part of getting into a positive mindset is to get you into action and to be in a better mindset to tackle the hard things that face you. If you're being slammed with life things that are difficult and emotionally tasking, how you perceive them will ultimately affect how you'll handle them. If you take a negative aspect, you'll be in such a worse spot to get thru it vs not. If you can switch your mindset, you'll be in a better place to get thru it, learn from it and maybe even enjoy it. Now I understand there are life events that are very overwhelming and serious. Someone dies and you're not going to throw some positive mantra at it. That's not appropriate or respectful. There are serious life events but for about 95% of what my mind wants to complain about and be afraid of, they're perfect for a mindset shift. There are time and places for it but it works for 95% of what I percieve as "stress". Have a great day everyone!!
