Turn Your Problems Around
Wow, what a week!
It's been a BIG emotional week for Americans and the World, and I wish all the best for all. This is your chance to change my mindset and for You to turn your problems around.
For me, these last few weeks have been more than busy. I'm at the tail end of training for another 50K, and it's simply been a lot of hard work and dedication.
Believe it or not, it's very similar to someone putting in the training for a 5K, 10K or even presidency! Much more intense for the latter nevertheless a lot of focus, drive, consistency, and good mental talk which are exactly the traits you need to accomplish anything.
At times, a focus can take the back seat when things are not working, and we don't know why. It's usually because of problems.
Your Can Turn Your Problems Around!
You are human and are allowed. (Only for a moment)
- To not want to do things that make your life better,
- Not to believe you can do things that you really can do.
- To not want to push yourself when the best part of your life is right around the bend.
Why? (You must think I'm a little crazy!)
The reason is, If you didn't have these negative moments in your life, you wouldn't know what things you need to change.
Hense you will finally be able to push yourself in the right direction.
Most of us look at these negative moments as problems.
Problems can become more problems leading us back into a cycle of problems, and nothing is actually getting fixed.
Not until we look at the problem differently.
"Turn your problems around, instead look at the problem as..."
- challenges we can change
- challenges help us see the other side of things
- challenges make us think and help us map and fix the things we need to fix
- finally, challenges send us in the right direction
Recognizing moments of negative thinking are excellent signposts to help you with change and flipping things around in your favour.
For example: When you're feeling lazy and the plan you had was to go for a run. The laziness is your signpost, to get out there and run or at least help you to figure out what remains to be done differently, so you go running next time.
Maybe the only solution is going to bed earlier or running a different time in the day.
Make sure today you are mindful of your negative feelings, that's your signpost or your indicator for your moment of change.
Please leave a comment and let me know what your indicator is to change your thinking.
