For the past couple weeks, it’s been difficult to maintain a sense of belonging because I’m currently unemployed due to the incident at work. After the incident, I NOW have AFIB. (Atrial Fibrillation) ## meaning that I have an irregular heartbeat. In a way, it’s a blessing and a curse because IF the fight DID NOT OCCUR, I wouldn’t have found out about my heart condition. But since it did occur, I NOW KNOW SOMETHING, EARLY ON, RATHER THAN LATER about my condition.
Which brings me to this point. I can’t WATCH that video without some sense of anxiety and rage. Because each time, it crosses my mind, I always find a different perspective to avoid that situation. At the same time, I also replay what I would have did differently…..from beginning to end.
Ive read Brian Tracy inspirational books since High school and they’ve been a very influential part in my life.
Here’s some words from the MAN…..HIMSELF!
“Inspirational/Motivational World Speaker”
Unexpected circumstances can be thrown at you, but what is the thing that counts most in these situations? What counts most is how you react to what happens to you, especially when you have unexpected problems of any kind.
Here are four things you can do to assure that your attitude is the very best it can be, under all circumstances.
Focus On the Future
First, whatever challenges you face, focus on the future rather than on the past. Instead of worrying about who did what and who is to blame, focus on where you want to be and what you want to do. Get a clear mental image of your ideal successful future, and then take whatever action you can to begin moving in that direction. Get your mind, your thoughts, and your mental images on the future.
Think About the Solution
Second, whenever you’re faced with a difficulty, focus on the solution rather than on the problem. Think and talk about the ideal solution to the obstacle or setback, rather than wasting time rehashing and reflecting on the problem. Solutions are inherently positive, whereas problems are inherently negative. The instant that you begin thinking in terms of solutions, you become a positive and constructive human being.
Look For the Good
Third, assume that something good is hidden within each difficulty or challenge. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, a major proponent of positive thinking, once said, “Whenever God wants to give us a gift, he wraps it up in a problem.” The bigger the gift you have coming, the bigger the problem you will receive. But the wonderful thing is that if you look for the gift, you will always find it.
Seek the Valuable Lesson
assume that whatever situation you are facing at the moment is exactly the right situation you need to ultimately be successful. This situation has been sent to you to help you learn something, to help you become better, to help you expand and grow.
