Reframing Your Thoughts

How many problems do we create all on our own?
I'm talking about when bad things happen to you. Well, to us.
How much of it do you think happens because we've put so much energy into worrying and thinking negatively?

Personally, yes I do think that a lot of problems could be avoided or at least changed if we re-framed our thinking. However, I also think that there are times when issues arise because life wants to challenge us to find the high road on our own. You're not always going to have a solution or positive thought handed to you. It takes a lot of training to get yourself to the point where you can turn every "bad" situation into a "positive" one.

This is something I've been working on a lot, especially over the past year.

It helps that I had a life coach for a couple of years. Honestly, I would recommend investing in this kind of service versus therapy (unless you feel strongly that that's what you need). Why? Because your coach isn't trained to prescribe medication that won't necessarily eliminate the problem(s) you're having. Quite often our issues with self-worth/esteem/image and our inability to see things in a more positive light is a result of having developed habits of self-deprecation. And as we all know, habits are hard to break. A coach helps you with that.

There are two books I'd like to recommend to you on this subject of changing your thought patterns in order to address and work through your personal issues.

"The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz
"Unlimited Power" by Anthony Robbins

I will definitely discuss these books in further blogs! I love them both and they've both changed my life and perspective significantly.

I'll leave you with that for now. Please feel free to reply with your own thoughts on the subject(s).
