Are you taking guided action?

Don’t allow yourself to become one of those people who lives in constant fear.  When you have troubles in your life, how do you react?  Do you tend to lash out and blame others?  Or do you take responsibility for your part in whatever is going on? 

The truth is–drum roll please–you are completely responsible for how you view every moment of your life.  You might perceive someone as being against you, but they have their own set of issues they are dealing with that have nothing whatsoever to do with you.  They might have a hidden agenda or not.  It doesn’t matter.  You can choose to believe what you like, but wouldn’t you rather be happy and content with your life?

Even in your darkest hour, there is hope.  When everything seems to fall apart around you, you need to get out of your mind and into the present moment.  Be here now.  Right now, everything is okay (in 99% of the cases).  For that other 1% of the time, just breathe through it.  You will come out the other side stronger than before you went through the trial. 

We live this way for a reason.  If we were all able to learn without facing hardship, do you think hardship would exist?  I don’t mean to belittle anyone’s experiences, but, by choice, I have not watched news programs for several months.  I found that I am much happier on a whole.  When issues come up, I turn to friends who are able to help me through it.  If you are constantly focused on negativity (as seems to be the case with most news programming), you tend to see the darker side of things.  See the light.  Focus on what you want to see more of.

Now, if you can see that you have some kind of problem, you can search within for a solution.  Every problem has a solution.  But, it’s more than just finding the solution to what ails you.  You need to act on it.  It’s too big, you say?  You’re not sure where to start?  Start somewhere.  Start anywhere.  Start with guided action.  Once you determine a solution, you can come up with action steps that if completed will get you to the place you would like to be.  I can’t stress this enough.  You really need to ACT.  Take the first step.  And the second.  And the third.  Whatever you do, just keep on going.
