It took me twenty-one years to learn that happiness is never given, it is built and it is never about the situation you are in but always your mindset toward it and that if you are ever unhappy in a situation you better run.
Be mindful of how you handle your energy. Similar to money, it can either be spent, or it can be saved. It can be given, or it can be collected. This energy is a precious gift, truly. So be cautious, and handle yours wisely.
Why Positive Thinking Doesn’t Work... And What Does:
Being positive when things are going negative is never going to work: it feels like you’re forcing it, trying to hard, ignoring situations or being plain stupid doesn’t it? When you try to be positive, you can hear the voice in your head telling you, “this isn’t going to work, what a waste of money, who are you kidding”.
The way anything is ever achieved is by building the new, and not focusing on the old. Spend your time becoming clearer on what you do want how you want to live, who you want to become.
You are 100% responsible for your life, your happiness, and what you do with your time on Earth.
Ask yourself these questions: 1. If all the problems in my life were solved, how would I spend my time? 2. What do I have to do to be 100% happy and in love with myself? 3. What am I waiting for?
So when you are really engaged in what is going on around you, it probably feels like all hell is breaking loose! The key out of this? Let it. Let it break loose, let things be as they are. Instead, you become clearer about what you want (and not what you don’t want). Work toward that. And watch problems around you dissolve in the process.
