Right now in the United States post-election, I’m still seeing a lot of anger and divisiveness. Maybe it’s because I’m older, I’m calmer. I have seen these cycles before. I was born in the late 60’s and saw the strife in the 70’s. Then again in the 90’s. And here we are again. I’ve also read history and know that we have been in worse places. I hope we never need another Civil War to get us back to being civil to one another.
We need to learn to accept that other people have different opinions than we do. They’re different people. It doesn’t make it wrong or them bad. We do need to find a path to getting back to business.
Resources for Positive Mindset
Bob Proctor in his Science of Getting Rich course mentions that we’ll have politicians as long as we humans need them. We’re growing and evolving. Some day, we won’t need them anymore. How much does the political spectrum really affect you? What I counsel is to get more involved locally. Do things to improve your neighborhood, town, county, whatever.
T. Harv Eker talks about how we need to have our own personal economy separate from the National and Global economies. So look at how you’re doing. Only compare yourself to yourself. Some of the greatest fortunes were created during the worst of economic times.
And Dr. Joe Vitale was the first to teach me “What If Up” thinking. It’s where you think what if the best possible scenario occurred rather then what if the world falls around me. When you’re thinking positive, you can identify more opportunities.
Why Be Negative?
And honestly, it takes just as much effort to visualize the positive as it does the negative. So why not visualize the best possible outcome?
And while you’re at it, think back to when you had a success. Then feel those same feelings as you visualize your positive outcome. I promise you’ll be a lot happier and have better results.
You should be filling your mind with positive things. I subscribe to Audible and will get audiobooks by people like Bob Proctor, T. Harv Eker, Dr. Joe Vitale, etc. (Try Audible and Get Two Free Audiobooks)
I think I’ll do a post on everything I have. Anyway, my current one is the update of Psycho-Cybernetics: Updated and Revised by Dr. Maxwell Maltz edited by Dan Kennedy. There’s so many gems that I need to be reminded. Such as if you look for offense, you will find it.
So instead of looking for offense, spend today looking for the good.
