It's easy to make a significant change: just tell everyone you have developed an electricity intolerance.

Sure, change is tough.

But you gotta look on the bright side: if you don't like that last suggestion - when the urge to change gets too annoying, you can always watch a TV rerun.

Now, do you see the benefit in the power of positive thinking?

And, those 3 things - that’s all people do. People Only Do 3 Things: Good Habits, Bad Habits, New Things. Here's a link to explain the thinking.

 

The cornerstone of our personality, our mental attitude, shows up as the general flavour of our thoughts.

We can choose from 3 mental-attitude flavours: Positivity, Negativity, & Indifference.

Positivity is the best flavour...a rich flavour in many ways.

Negativity can be hard to swallow...but, at least, it gives you something to argue against.

Indifference - so bland it's not worth writing about.

If you are ready to change then perhaps complaining does some good: it could help you clarify the nature of the change you need to make; it could generate some constructive feedback to help you plan your change...etc.

Some people take the same route to work every day...if that route is blocked, they cannot find a way to work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Human Beings all creatures of habit.

While considering our goals we always have many routes to achieve them. However, sometimes we just cannot look ahead and see new routes. We become victims of our situations, stalled in the present, stalled in the problem. 

Anxiety is in our genes...it is the legacy of fight or flight, which allowed our ancestors to bring us us.

Anxiety: be present, don't fret over it, observe it in real time, & learn what it takes to control it if it gets out of hand.

In right-sized doses, anxiety energizes and hones focus.

In too-large doses, anxiety becomes a demon and destroys quality of life.
