That you could have the ability to completely shift a situation in your favor with only your thoughts? Sounds pretty cool doesn’t it? Well guess what? You already have that ability.
You may not realize it, but often our decision to judge a situation as “good” or “bad” is based solely on our attitude; our ability to find the positive or negative aspects that we prefer to allow ourselves to focus on. There is good and bad in every situation.
Our internal dialogue will determine our reaction to the external stimuli. If we train our brains to find the things to be grateful for in every situation, we will be more likely to find the ray of hope in the most desperate situations.It can be easy to become ungrateful for your current blessings when you are constantly looking for the next big thing.
Striving for the next bonus, promotion, or job opportunity is often labeled as drive; the urge to satisfy a strong need or attain a goal. When this drive begins to manifest itself as stress, it may be time to step back and analyze the situation further.
Being mindful of your present circumstances can help you appreciate the good and not dwell on the bad. The conscious decision to have a positive reaction to every situation instead of letting the situation dictate our mood can be very freeing if you allow it to be.
