For me a situation seems more temporary than a problem.Â Itâs just semantics, but it works.
One âsituationâ I seem to find myself in more than I would like is taking on to much at once.Â I am a âyesâ man.Â I tell myself I can handle anything.Â Yet, when Iâve got so much going on in my life I can quickly enter a negative vortex that spins fast and like a black hole grabs everything nearby turning it into an unconstructive blob of yuck.
The lesson I learn (over and over) is to change my message to:Â I can handle anything but I have to stay focused on what I really want.Â Iâve written myself a reminder to read daily.Â What do I really want? Is this thought getting me closer or further away from what I want?
My hope is that soon I wonât have to remind myself but rather be so centered and focused on my goal that nothing distracts me from my objective.
Iâm reminded: Â The thoughts you have today will change your life.Â What are you thinking on a consistent basis?
