Looking For Solutions

Think about how you feel when you are looking for solutions. In other words, what you are doing is finding yourself in a process where you are focusing on moving towards a solution. You feel hopeful, you feel curious, you feel that you are in a forward moving frame of mind. You may even feel positive precisely because you are working on a solution.

Now what happens when you are looking at a problem? You may feel negative. You may feel hopeless. You find yourself in a process where you are focusing going around and around and on and on about something negative.

Essentially both scenarios arise from the same situation, but in one you are focusing on it in a way that promotes positive emotions ... seeking a solution ... and in the other you are focusing on it in a way that promotes negative emotions ... looking at a problem ...

Be aware of how you focus - not only in this, but in all else. By choosing how you focus, by having the clear intention that you will choose the path that promotes your inner well-being, you choose your energy. And the quality of your energy can totally change the landscape of your life.

  1. Well said Gabriella! It is a joy to read your posts, they hit the nail with a lot of accuracy :)
    Once again it is all about making the right choice, one can choose the negative or positive by choosing which side of the hand one wants to look at. It is as simple as flipping the hand. I wish all could think that way. I think it takes a lot of practice to get to that state where one can think along those lines, be able to understand and to know that it is that simple.
