You can ALWAYS Find a reason to be happy-turbomind-POWERIDEA #9
You can always find a reason to be happy and, also, you can always find a reason to be sad, unhappy, and frustrated.
How is this possible?
Well, it depends on what you are focusing your mind on, and what meaning you are giving to the situation.
These are three critical elements in psychology and personal success.
- What something means
- What are you focusing on.
- You can always give an empowering meaning to any situation. It’s called reframing.
And these three can apply to any situation a human being can experience, even the most challenging ones.
The human mind is ALWAYS trying to give meaning to every situation.
