BELIEVE YOU CANWritten by Sharon Dalton Williams
When you were a child, perhaps you heard story of "The Little Engine that Could." From what I recall (I haven't read story in ages!), there was a tiny little engine that had to make it's way up a large mountain pulling many cars of a train. At first, little engine thought task was too big. But then it decided to give it a try.
All way up large mountain little engine kept repeating, "I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." Eventually, with time, patience, and consistent effort, little engine pulled train up over top of mountain.
On way down other side, little engine happily repeated, "I thought I could. I thought I could. I thought I could."
When you take a look at goals you have for your personal and business lives, it may seem to you that you have two huge mountains to go over. You may be feeling a lot like that little engine and think there is no way you can achieve these goals.
I'm sure you've heard expression, "You have to see it to believe it." If this is how you look at life, then you will never get anywhere you want to go.
The truth is that in order to reach any goal, large or small, "You have to believe it to see it."
When you envision something in your mind, your mind sees a picture. Your mind cannot tell difference between a picture you are creating in your head and a picture your eyes are looking at. According to your brain, it's all same.
Overcoming FrustrationsWritten by Francoise Rapp
Life can be exhaustively frantic when we pressure ourselves to be viewed as successful and accomplished. But this places us under an amazing amount of stress and may lead to frustration if we set unrealistic and unachievable goals.
When we don't reach our aspirations -- whether in a career, financially or romantically -- our frustrations will materialize into irritability, anger, depression, withdrawal, self criticism and other self-destructive behaviors.
In order to avoid falling into such an unhealthy, endless spiral, it is important to place some distance between you and your frustrations and take a closer look at your life and accomplishments. Indulging yourself through relaxing massages, a nice meal, meditation and other rewards will calm mind and all frustration-related symptoms.
