Agatha Christie once said, “They are busy knocking that they do not notice that the door is open.” Sure, you may have experienced failures, but don’t dwell on them. People may have treated you badly, but don’t dwell on the past. Do not focus on your past failures. Instead, focus on how you are going to make things better for yourself.
Whatever you may have gone through in the past, let it go. Never think poorly of yourself. Always, always think of yourself as a powerful person. Because whatever you accept in your mind, you will get back. If you accept positive thoughts in your mind, you will get positive feelings back. You will feel good about yourself. You will like yourself even more. You will have the power to dream, to do great things. But if you accept bad thoughts, negative thoughts in your mind, you will get negative feelings back. You will not feel really good about yourself, your life. If you want to enjoy your life, you must stop accepting the wrong things in your mind. Because what you accept in your mind, you will get back.
Things happen in life. You can’t stop things from happening. You can’t stop things from happening to you, but you can control how you manage them. When you are faced with a problem, do not think negatively about it. Think about how to make it work for you, not against you. Think about how you are going to change it. Think about what you are going to do to change the situation from negative to positive.
When it comes to managing a problem, the best thing you can do is to think positively about it. Do not worry about the problem, worry about how to make it work for you, not against you. In the words of Edgar Albert Guest, “When you’re up against a trouble, meet it squarely, face to face; lift your chin and set your shoulders, plant your feet and take a brace. When it’s vain to try to dodge it, do the best that you can do; you may fail, but you may conquer, see it through!” If you want to grow, that is what you should NEVER fail to do.
When you are faced with a problem, don’t run away from it. Running away from a problem makes it worse, not better. When you ignore a problem, it gets bigger, not smaller. So if you want a problem to go away, you MUST meet it with a greater power. The power within you.
