Manufacture Your Day by BECOMING BETTER
Have you ever felt sorry for yourself? I have been there so many times but thankfully I managed to get myself out of this dark place every single time.
In the beginning, I spent weeks blaming outside circumstances and other people for the difficulties in my life. Eventually, I became more aware of my self-sabotaging mindset and I managed to see setbacks as an opportunity to find new solutions, which helped me to bounce back faster.
In my mind, self-awareness and mindfulness are keys to becoming a more responsible human being.
Today I would like to give you 3 strategies that can make life so much better:
Is it possible to see a person or a situation in a different light – a better light? What meaning do you assign? What else could a certain behaviour mean? Is this situation really a problem or can you find the opportunity in the problem?
2. Judge less, appreciate more
If you judge people, you limit them. Humans are not always behaving the way you may expect and that’s normal. People are different and we should celebrate our differences rather than looking for “sameness”. Meet diversity of thought with a curious mind. If you assume that you can learn something from every person you meet, your conversations will start from a completely different place. If your mindset is different, so will be your outcome.
3. Your thoughts create your emotional state
The quality of your life depends on where you live emotionally. Who wants to be in a constant state of frustration, fear or sadness? Nobody, yet many are. The average person has 60,000 thoughts a day and 80% of these thoughts tend to be negative. If you are aware, you can do something about it. Pay attention to how you feel. Your feelings are a result of your thoughts. If you feel frustrated, angry or sad, simply ask yourself, “What do I give my attention to?” If you’re aware, shift your focus.
The story you tell yourself about yourself and others, and the meaning you give to everyday situations make all the difference between becoming better or bitter.
Take responsibility for your response because you can improve your ability to respond responsibly.
