You tend to bring into your life that which is consistent with your focus. You can either focus on what is not working or what is; what you don’t have or you do; what you want or what you don’t; what you believe in or don’t. There is a great line (can’t remember where I heard it, just know I am not taking credit for it) that says: be careful what you ask for, you might just get it.

One of my favorite quotes is by Arthur Ashe. He said, “True greatness is: starting where you are, using what you have and doing what you can.” Most winners in life are grateful for their blessings, and focus on what they want, have and can do. By the same token, most losers focus on what is missing, where they are not and on what they can’t do.

Question for the week
Do you consistently focus on what you want or what you don’t want with mental self-talk?

Most people take life far too seriously. You and I are not going to get out of this life alive so why not enjoy the gift of life today as if it was your last. One day you will be right. In my book, The Road to Happiness is Full of Potholes, I stress that one of the key traits of truly happy people is their ability to have fun. Laughter is medicine for the soul. It helps you reduce the negative impact of the stressors in your life as well as see the problems you may be facing for what they really are, temporary teachers on the path of life.

Question for the week
Do you laugh enough? Do you have enough fun time each week?

The ability to control your emotions and take full responsibility for your life and its opportunities and dramas is one of the key skills necessary for success, balance and happiness. There may be times during life when it is appropriate to feel guilt, anger, resentment, fear, jealousy, disappointment, grief, insecure, blame and hundreds of other feelings due either to your belief system and values or the circumstances and people that life throws in your path. Some people have the ability to experience these various emotions and then let them go quickly leaving no long-term negative residual effects. Others, on the other hand seem to remain stuck in any one of these negative emotions, to their detriment, I might add. Emotional maturity is the ability to see life clearly. To deal in – what is. Not what can be or was or what you want it to be.

Question for the week
How emotionally secure are you?
