Oh NO! Not Again! Why does this always happen to me?
“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty”. Winston Churchill
Are you one of those people that think or even believe that everything always happens to them? If you are then maybe you might want to consider how those ‘other’ people manage to have everything in their lives going right!
But is it right to say that it’s either one or the other, and what is fact and what is perception?
If we want success then we should always strive to get their and never falter, trying to keep enthusiastic as best we can.
Winston Churchill also said: “Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”
Often those people we perceive to have it all and are always lucky is often is our perception, their mindset and ours.
I’m sure you’ve had days when nothing seems to go right from the moment you wake up in the morning. We can find ourselves saying, “Looks like today is going to be one of those days when nothing goes right!” And guess what? Nothing does go right! But isn’t that a self-fulfilling prophecy?
If instead we changed our mindset to believe that’s the ‘bad’ stuff done, and the rest of the day is going to be amazing and perfect in every way, wouldn’t that be a more positive mindset attracting good things rather than bad?
To enable us to change our mindset we need to be open to change.
Winston Churchill said: “To improve is to change, so to be perfect is to have changed often”.
We need to be constantly open to change, learning, gaining experience, taking ourselves out of our comfort zone as often as we can or as often as we dare.
Instead of saying “Oh NO! Not Again! Why does this always happen to me?”, consider some of the above quotes, develop some personal positive affirmations to remind us to have a more positive outlook therefore only attracting good things to us. Believing it will happen in the way you dream, imaging you are achieving your aspirations. Then success will come to you…
