HOW TO HANDLE LIFE'S PROBLEMS (BUSINESS AND PERSONAL)

by Craig Lock

Try to enrich your life at all times. Your life is a gift -
so enjoy it to the absolute fullest. But when things
are going well (or so we think), suddenly things go
radically wrong and our whole lives get turned
upside down.

Why is it that certain people have fewer problems
and are less ill than others. They are happier people;
because their OUTLOOK ON LIFE is different. I think
so. They seem to have a power and control over
their own lives. Something I don't seem to have at
the moment - enough negative thoughts, Craig!

The mind influences how we feel, how our body
reacts to certain events and chiefly how successful
we are in work and play. Therefore, it is a very
strong force in our lives. When we first encounter
adversity or severe trauma, it is our mind which has
to cope with the unexpected. We first feel an
intense shock, then there is disbelief, an
overwhelming numbness, disorientation, consuming
pain, panic...and finally exhaustion. These are very
real responses for you in a major life crisis, which are
difficult for others to understand. These reactions
can vary in intensity and duration, depending on
your personality make-up. Are you highly strung and
an intense and sensitive "little soul", like me?

The power of the mind is exemplified with placebos
(nice word, that!). An ineffectual glass of water or
a pill WILL make you feel better, when you believe
it has medicinal properties and CAN help you
(this is known as a placebo). They
can also relax you more, help you to feel less
anxious, fearful and enable you to sleep better.
People with cancer can outlive the predictions of
the medical fraternity, when they have faith and
BELIEVE they will get better. On the other hand,
on diagnosis of cancer some patient's conditions
deteriorate drastically. They have now lost hope of
ever getting better. It really is all in the mind (our
health and everything that happens to us) and
depends on our ATTITUDE to life. A positive
attitude helps greatly in health and in happiness. If
we rather see hardship as a challenge, it will greatly
help us to pull through. That's what keeps me
going here! I believe that people with strong minds
can even postpone death. However, what normally
happens in our daily lives? We usually tend to make
excuses and find scapegoats for our condition, our
"poor" situations. However, I definitely believe
obstacles do not have to be insurmountable
roadblocks on the pathway to achievement,
success or happiness - because the mind is a very
powerful tool. If used properly, it can be a very
strong positive force in our lives.

Our reactions come out of our feelings and our feelings
come out of what we believe about ourselves.

Even in the midst of the biggest life problems and severest
human crises, you still have a CHOICE:
You have FREEDOM to choose your thoughts, to THINK
what you want.
So,

EMPOWER YOURSELF BY GAINING CONTROL OF THE MIND...
and BELIEVE IN YOUR UNIQUENESS AS AN INDIVIDUAL -
THE SPECIAL QUALITIES YOU POSSESS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
ON THIS WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL PLANET EARTH.

BE HAPPY
