An Excellent Way to Discover a Golden Opportunity

As mentioned in part 1 Finding Times Tough? How to Take Charge Today and Get a Happy Life, tough times create an opportunity for you.

It’s likely they cause you to slow down or allow you to pause a little longer than usual. We’re often moving so fast in our lives, we don’t even realize we need a change in direction.

Slowing down or being forced to allows you to reflect, time to ponder and this window could be enough to jolt you into thinking differently about life.

You may discover a golden opportunity sitting right there before you, something you otherwise may have missed. It usually works that way and that is the blessing.

If you choose to see tough times as a blessing, that’s what they’ll be.

Attitude is thought and a useful attitude can turn around any situation.

One Day You’ll Look Back and See How These Tough Times Helped You

Before we get started on these two easy steps, let’s give you a head start:

Imagine yourself one day looking back at this moment, saying:

“How fortunate those tough times were for me because without them I wouldn’t have made those changes in my life.

I wouldn’t have the wisdom or confidence I have now, it’s because I faced those times that I’ve done so much more in my life and I’m now so much happier.”

I’ve been known to say exactly that, even when my situation has been awful and perhaps you have too.

So, decide now that your current situation will also be that way.

Use this opportunity to ponder and reflect, and to decide what you want.

And then read on to find out how to leave tough times behind.

2 Easy Effective Steps to Your Happy Life

1. Make a list of everything that seems wrong in your life. This is your opportunity to let it all out. Then, create a second column and re-state each item to what you want. State this second list as if it is happening now in the present moment (i.e. not in the future) and state it in the positive, not the negative i.e. rather than saying ‘I’m not ill anymore’ say, ‘I’m a healthy person’.

Pretend you can have anything you want, so forget logic or whether you think it’s possible to have these things. Simply write down what it is you want, as if you already have it.

Unless you decide what you want, how can anything change? And if you don’t know what you want, who does?

2. Write or type up a story of your life the way you want it. Design the life you want, just as you’d design a house or your garden. Decide what you want in it. Write your story as if you already have what you want. This may seem strange and you may say, ‘but that’s a lie’. Rather see it as a little trick you play on your brain and that you have the best of intentions. Imagine what a happy life looks like for you (now that you have everything you want!). Indulge yourself in the possibilities. You can have what you want. Make your life fabulous.
