Do you find yourself struggling? Are you feeling unrest fueled by a struggling mind?
Struggling to keep your weight off? Commit to better health? Lower stress? Maintain a positive attitude? Advance at work? Make more money? Improve relationships?
How can you turn the situation into solutions-oriented thinking?
- Be aware of the cyclical, often obsessive thinking cycles of struggling.
- Identify the struggling areas, pick one or two that are the most important, and make a decision to stop the struggle and the mental distress.
- Be honest with yourself; examine how the struggle benefits you, how it rewards your operating patterns and how it serves you in direct or distorted ways.
- Commit yourself to one step, and take it. Make that step your friend, so that you will construe the result as positive. Once you’ve attained your first success, commit to another step.
- Internalize and enjoy the process. Part of a positive solution is the satisfaction of the process.
- Contact a coach or consultant to provide you support and keep challenging you forward, retrain your operating systems and move you from struggle to solution, from unrest to satisfaction and to long-term sustained success.
