On Wednesdays, I share posts, fables, songs, poems, quotations, TEDx Talks, cartoons, and books that have inspired and motivated me on my writing journey. I hope these posts will give writers, artists, and other creatives a mid-week boost.
A long-time fan of bestselling authors and coaches Marc and Angel Chernoff, I look forward to reading their emails and blog. Here’s an excerpt from a recent email:
Sometimes changing your situation isn’t possible—or simply not possible soon enough. You can’t get a new job in an instant. You can’t make someone else change his or her will. And you certainly can’t erase the past. But…
You CAN always choose a mindset that moves you forward. And doing so will help you change things from the inside out, and ultimately allow you to grow beyond the struggles you can’t control at this moment.
Here’s a powerful question that will support you with a positive attitude adjustment when need it most:
Who would you be, and what else would you see, if you removed the thought that’s worrying you?
Think about it…
Identify a specific thought that’s been troubling your worried mind lately, and then visualize how your life would be different if you removed this thought.
How would it change your outlook on your present life situation?
What other possibilities and opportunities would you see?
What else would you be able to accomplish with this shift in your focus?
