Five Tips to Get Out of Your Funk! It's Time to Ditch The Pity Me State of Mind

Okay, enough is enough with the negativity. Can't we all just be happy? What a concept! Sounds simple, but in this day and age people are really having a difficult time seeing the positive in life. I know so many people who are living in 'fear' afraid of listening, and for that matter following, their own intuition.

I know what it's like to get fired. I know what it's like to be living off of your savings. I know what it's like to wonder how you are going to afford to pay your rent or mortgage. But you know something, I never gave up. I held on to hope. I held on to my vision. And I kept perservering.

First thing is first. You have to change your mindset. Unless you have the right mindset, doors--I'm talking about opportunities--will not present themselves. And if they do, you may not recognize them.

Second, get out of the house. The longer you mope around in your pity me state of mind, the longer you'll be in your funk.

Third, stop whining! I don't know a soul whose life is perfect. We all have stuff. We all have our ups and downs. We all have our challenges. Yes, many of us need to vent and it's healthy to vent. But vent in a positive way. Instead of saying, "My life sucks," and "My life is over," and "Nothing good ever happens in my life," say, "Boy, that really sucked, but shit happens and I have my friends, health, and potential still!"

Fourth, smile! Smiling is a powerful tool to get those happy endorphins circulating in yours and other peoples bodies.

Lastly, every person you meet, discover three positive qualities about them. And ask yourself, why have I attracted this person into my life. What lesson am I learning. What mirror of myself are they reflecting.

"Impossible" is a word that restricts our own success

This past Sunday, Michael and I took our children to their first Circus experience. It was truly amazing. And yes, it is one of the world's greatest shows! A must see.

During the show, as we all were watching three females do these mind-boggling bends and balancing acts, my oldest son taps me on the arm and says, "This just isn't possible. Mom, this just isn't possible." His mind couldn't comprehend the way the acrobats bodies bent, not too mention, a man walking and dancing on firey glass chips and a very attractive female entertainer holding a man high above her head without any support.

I actually was envious. These entertainers could do things with their body that I believe all of us can do if we took the time and were disciplined enough to stretch and become one with our physical self. Each performer had mastered concentration, focus, and oneness with their physcial self. It was motivating!

The word "impossible" limits our own ability to succeed and accomplish our goals. From my perspective, nothing is impossible.

Take some time to think about what you thought was impossible, but someone proved it was? Now take a moment and think about what has been holding you back. Do you believe you aren't able to do something? Do you believe in yourself--your strengths and your potential? Today is the day to realize you can accomplish anything you set your mind too. The onlyone holding you back is yourself!

I leave you with one thought! "Believe in possibility!"
