Stop and see what it is you are to learn from situation. The difference between a man who loses his job and becomes a couch potato, and a man who goes out and starts his own business with redundancy money, is their responsibility for their attitude to life.
When you consciously take control of what you are thinking, feeling and experiencing, you have key to empowerment.
Instead of looking at a days work as drudgery, look at it as a means to getting one step closer to your goals.
See doing ironing as a blessing rather than a curse. How you may ask? Well, give thanks that you have a roof over your head, clothes to protect you from cold and are healthy enough to go about you business wearing your ironed clothes (find blessings in your particular circumstances). Suddenly act of ironing becomes a 'giving thanks' exercise rather than a dreaded chore.
Find a place where you can stand and look up at sky. Notice what clouds look like, how fast they're moving, what an array of colors there are, listen for birds and feel wind on your face. Marvel at mechanics of world that go on around you every day - and stop to notice them.
In short. Stop - take notice - and take responsibility for path of YOUR Life!
